During the year 2020, the PlayStation 5 managed to achieve fairly good sales in the Japanese market, as more than 942 thousand devices were pumped during the last 12 months.
These sales come at a time when the market for new generation devices is witnessing a significant shortage in quantities due to the shortage of semiconductors that are used in the production of these devices.
These numbers achieved by the PlayStation 5, according to what was revealed by Famitsu magazine (via GI.biz), come close to 10 times what the Xbox Series achieved during the same period, which amounted to only 95 thousand units. Despite Microsoft’s attempts to improve its presence in the Japanese market.
The Nintendo Switch, of course, comes in first place in terms of sales that exceeded 5.3 million units during 2020, making it the preferred device among Japanese players during that period.
Recently, Microsoft has been and still has vigorous attempts to control part of the Japanese market, and although these attempts are still immature and require more time and effort, Nintendo and Sony continue to dominate the game market in Japan.
