This is great, thank you! Last week I was asking myself if there's a X360 vs. Xbox Series in Japan comparison, because I thought this could be interesting ^^

IMO, this is the single-most fascinating sales comparison that could be done for the Xbox Series consoles. And I especially love that you included all four generations of Xbox in it! I'd love to see this updated periodically. :)

It's kind of interesting how the Series (particularly the S) has managed to practically double the XBO lifetime sales in its first year and half. And it continues to sell so that number will keep going up. I dont know if it will beat 360 numbers but it certainly has a chance to beat og xb.

What caused the X360 spike in month 13... Was Blue Dragon that big a deal?

Trying to catch up with the 360 is gonna be rough, but it does have a very good shot at being the second Xbox console to cross 1 mil in Japan.

In Japan is different market and I don't think that Series could easily surpass the beauty 360. Looks at the design in banner, it's classy.
