Japan is the birthplace of Sony and the PlayStation, so it is not surprising that in this market, the Sony console often outperforms the Microsoft set-top box in sales. However, the situation changed last week.

For the first time in eight years, Xbox surpassed PlayStation.  In Japan, Xbox Series S outperformed PS5 last week

According to sources, last week the Xbox console was ahead of the PlayStation in sales, and this happened for the first time in eight years.

We are talking about weekly sales, so in a normal situation this information would hardly be interesting, but still such an important achievement for Microsoft is worth attention.

True, the point is not at all in the decline in demand for the PS5 and the growth in demand for the Xbox, but simply in the availability of one or another set-top box. Actually, it is the offer that has been the main factor for the entire year and a half since the launch of the current generation consoles.

So, to the numbers. Last week, only 2693 PS5 consoles were sold in Japan, only 105 Xbox Series X consoles were sold, while the Series S sold 6120 units. That is, it was the younger Microsoft console that bypassed the Sony consoles.

For comparison, in the two weeks from April 25 to May 8, more than 46,000 PS5 consoles were sold. That is, their availability was simply many times higher. And the Xbox Series S sold 10,610 units.

In any case, the undisputed leader remains the Nintendo Switch. Last week, 35,868 Switch OLEDs, 20,443 Switch units and 9011 Switch Lite units were sold.

Even Xbox One will be able to give out 60

AMD FSR 2.0 technology is coming soon to Xbox consoles.

Even Xbox One will be able to give out 60 ks?  AMD FSR 2.0 Technology Coming to Microsoft Consoles

This was reported by representatives of the GPUOpen team, as well as a Microsoft employee, that is, these are not rumors. However, there are no exact dates yet.

But it is known that FSR 2.0 will appear not only on the Xbox Series, but also on the Xbox One, which may allow the latter to actually get a second life, since the console will be able to better cope with modern games.

At the same time, in the case of consoles, you need to understand that they almost always support various upscaling technologies anyway. Consoles have a very long lifespan, and their hardware must be able to handle new games years after the device’s release. As such, it’s hard to say just how much FSR 2.0 will help consoles handle modern games or higher resolutions better.

It is also worth remembering that FSR 2.0 has been integrated into Unreal Engine 4 and 5 as a plug-in, which makes it easier to integrate the technology into relevant games.
