Microsoft Xbox One has horrible launch in Japan Following its recent launch in the nation, the Microsoft Xbox One had a rough time selling in Japan.
Just like its predecessor, the Xbox One had a terrible launch, selling just 23,562 units in its first week of availability. While the Xbox 360 was also a failure, it sold over 60,000 in its first week back in 2005.

Japanese-based Sony and Nintendo had much more impressive launches for their current-gen consoles, with the Wii U seeing 300,000 units sold in two days and the PS4 seeing 322,000 in its first week.

Microsoft just launched the console in 27 new nations including Japan.

Too bad the Sony controllers are designed for tiny hands. I kept mashing the wrong buttons. Sold the PS3 same week I got it.
