Given all of the statistics we have seen up till now it looks like Sony is far ahead of Microsoft in the next-generation console wars. Time and time again it has been reported that the PS4 has been outselling the Xbox One. Later this year Microsoft’s new console will be launched on Sony’s home turf and when it comes out it will be backed by 29 titles which will all be available for the Xbox One upon its launch in Japan.
Microsoft confirmed earlier this year that the Xbox One is going to make its way to Japan on September 4th. Online retailers in the country have already started taking orders for the console and some even report that the Day One bundle has already been sold out. There appears to be significant demand for the console in Japan if reports are to be believed.
Of the 29 titles accompanying the launch, 11 are from Microsoft. These include the likes of Forza Motorsport 5, Ryse: Son of Rome, Halo: Spartan Assault, Dead Rising 3 and more.
Remaining titles are from third party developers such as Electronic Arts, Square Enix, Bethesda, Ubisoft and more. These include Battlefield 4, FIFA 14, Titanfall, Wolfenstein: The New Order, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and more.
Microsoft has posted a list of Japanese retailers on its website that are taking online reservations for the Xbox One ahead of its release in the country on September 4th.
