Xbox finally outsells PlayStation as Switch continues Japanese charts domination

Xbox Series S

The Xbox Series S outsold the PlayStation 5 in Japan for the first time in months.

The folks in Redmond have some reason to be happy today as the Xbox Series S outsold both PlayStation 5 models combined. Of course, both Sony and Microsoft’s next-gen consoles badly lag behind the Nintendo Switch. In fact, the three different Switch models (Switch, Switch Lite, and OLED) were the top three systems in the past week, accumulating a combined 65k units.
