Amazon charts mean nothing usually.Something can chart in the top 10 one day and be gone the next. We have to wait and see how it will perform outside of Amazon Japan.

Well I'm sure it was to show the differences in sales compared to the other console, but the Xbox One is not even launched yet in Japan so I don't even know what this represents, did it only just go on sale or something?

I prefer the worldwide sales every month than amazon , NPD or any other crap showing something about a specific area ... Worldwide sales make winners , not a specific area.

Lol, I'm sure they'll sell pretty good on their launch, but after that first week reality will kick it again like it always does for MS in Japan.

Yeah consoles are pretty much dead in Japan, still a sale is better than none.

Could you imagine a generation where Japan sales actually matter to XBox fans? I almost hope it DOES happen. The astronomical servings of crow all around would make it totally worth it. Playstation fans as well. Meltdowns everywhere!

The Asian market seems to have turned to mobile gaming anyways. Consoles to sell alot anymore over there so I hope MS knows not to make too many X1 for the Asian market but at least they are trying and seeing what they can sell over there.

I, for one, -love- the effort Microsoft is putting into localizing their games. Not Capcom though. Truly shows the faith they have in Japan.

I like it for the most part, but Rosalina seems shoehorned there. :s

Yet every week/month the PS4 outsells the X1 everywhere. It must just be some reason Amazon Japan is selling X1s.

Hmmmm... have to admit this is surprising. At the same time I wonder if Titanfall has something to do with this? Sure over here people have played it to death and some may even be bored of it right now but I would've sworn I read some stories and articles pre-launch for Titanfall stating how the japanese actually took a big liking for this game and the previews.

i heard the reason for this unusual event it's due to the xbone launching with 2 exclusive visual novels.

Titanfall has already launched in Japan, the Xbox 360 (and PC) version(s).

Oh come on! We don't use Amazon for sales numbers in System Wars! Well maybe if it's used to make the PS4 look good. But that's it!

@charizard1605: I'm confused. Why are Xbox One's and XB1 games on Japan's Amazon chart? No one in Japan wants XB1's or XB1 games, that's for sure. Where's the PS4 on the chart? This can't be right can it? lmao!! TCHBO!!

It doesn't launch in Japan until Sept 2014. Of course there are no sales yet. Just preorders.

I think the X1 has a good chance against the PS4 and Wii U in Japan this time around... Now that most of the Japanese gaming market doesn't care about consoles anymore.

Im pretty sure no stores ordered Xbones because of how bad they got screwed on the 360. Amazon is one of the few places to get one so the numbers are skewed.

Not surprising a new console that hasn't been released yet is #1. Unless it remain in the number 1 or top 5 spots for more than a week, thats big for a xbox product in japan, i see nothing to make a thread about

It would actually make this place quite an entertaining place to lurk if that did happen, but yeah Xbox has not one chance in hell.

So how badly do we think the Bone will do at launch in Japan? I reckon 80k first week, then 1,000 every week after.

Actually, it hasn't even charted. Perhaps the JP XB1 version not being up for pre-order yet may have something to do with it. :P At the moment, you can only order NA copies on Amazon.
