Xbox Series X, Series S Pre-orders Sold Out Quickly In Japan

Microsoft's weakest region seems to be off to a nice enough start.

Xbox Series X_S

The Xbox Series X and Series S are coming in November, but pre-orders went live earlier this week. Microsoft says there’s been “record-breaking” demand, and it seems largely pre-orders have seen sell outs by and large. That even includes one region that some maybe wouldn’t have expected to see an instant sell out.

As reported by VGC, major retailers in Japanese sold out of the Series X in roughly 20 minutes, with the Series S stock going quickly roughly an hour later. Of course, one might imagine that the actual stock being allocated to the region is pretty low due to the market share they have, and without solid numbers it’s impossible to know what that was, but hey, it’s not a bad start to sell out of your stock anyway you cut it. I personally like to imagine Xbox Japan’s newest mascot inspired this surge, but that is just me.

Both the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S will launch on November 10th with pre-orders live now in all regions, if you can find them.
