The PlayStation 5 largely outsold the Xbox Series X|S in Japan, shifting almost six times as many units at launch.
According to Famitsu's data (as reported by Gematsu), Sony's PS5 sold 118,085 units in four days (from launch on November 12, to November 15), with 14,184 of these units being the console's digital edition.
Microsoft's Series X and S had combined sales of 20,534 units in six days (from release on November 10, to November 15). Breaking down the sales numbers, the Xbox Series X sold 16,247 units and the Series S 4,287 units.
PlayStation 5 games also performed well in Japan, with Marvels' Spider-Man: Miles Morales shifting 18,640 physical copies, making it the top-selling PS5 game in Japan so far. Demon's Souls was a close second with 18,607 units. There was no report on Xbox Series X|S software sales, as Microsoft's games are mostly digital-only in Japan.
PS5 games have been performing well outside Japan too, making appearances in the UK charts despite the console having not launched yet at the time.
