New, 144 comments

Xbox One sold 23,562 units in its first week on the Japanese market following its launch in the region earlier this month  less than half of the number of Xbox 360 systems sold in Japan, Famitsu reports.

The console's launch saw the lowest in sales of any system in recent years, placing it below both Wii U and PlayStation 4 sales during the first two days of their respective launches.

By comparison, Wii U saw sales of 308,000 units during the first two days of its launch, while PS4 saw sales of 322,000. Xbox 360, on the other hand, sold 62,135 units in half the time it took for Xbox One to sell just over 20,000 units.

The new Microsoft console launched to Japan on Sept. 6, alongside the release of 29 titles including Killer Instinct, Dead Rising 3 and Titanfall. A full list of games now available for the Japanese region can be found here.
