Xbox One

Xbox One was launched in Japan on September 6, two days after it was expected and There’s a great disappointment for Microsoft that only 25000 units were sold until now. This is the worst console launch for Microsoft and they didn’t get what they expected
The number of Xbox 360 units sold at its launch in Japan was double than the units of Xbox One sold and in half time.
