Xbox Series X|S seems to be doing pretty well in Japan, all things considered. While beating out the PS5 for any given period is largely down to supply constraints, the fact that the system is really selling at all over there is a big improvement on last generation. Well, just as it did for a week in May, the console has outsold the PS5 again in the region.
This data comes from the week beginning June 13th, via Famitsu. Xbox Series X sold 3,272 units that week, while Xbox Series S managed 3,423. Meanwhile, both PS5 models managed 3,035 combined, so, that's less than half of Xbox Series X|S sales in Japan that week.
Just like that successful week in May — the first time Xbox outsold PlayStation there since 2014 — Xbox Series S seems to be proving very popular in Japan. Series X sales are improved over last month's triumph, but Series S still beats X by a few hundred units.
Once PS5 stock picks up again and becomes more stable in the region, we'd expect it to outsell Xbox Series consoles by a good margin. Still, while supply is constrained, Xbox continues to shift units in Japan, which is good news all round.
