Comparing this to the number of Xbox 360 consoles sold when it launched in 2005, which sold over 60,000 consoles in just two days. On its second week on sale, there were just 3,015 Xbox One consoles sold in Japan. Comparing this to the homegrown Sony PlayStation 3 and 4, the PS3 sold twice as many, while eight times as many PS4s were sold.
