Microsoft’s Xbox One has sold only 23,562 units over four days in Japan according to Famitsu figures.


That’s considerably less than what the Xbox 360 sold in the region when it first went on sale there, according to the Famitsu report.

Back in 2005 the Xbox 360 sold over 60,000 units in two days, according to Eurogamer. The original Xbox managed 123,000 units over three days way, way back in 2002.

The best-selling game on the system was Titanfall, bundled with the console, which shifted 22,416 units. Rare’s Kinect Sports Rivals sold 14,919 copies and Dead Rising 3 7330 units.

The Xbox One sales are really low when comapred to recent console launches from Nintendo and Sony. The Wii U sold 308,000 units and the PS4 322,000, both over two days.
