Xbox One Version of The Division Sells About 1,000 Copies in Japan; Sells 85.5% of Shipment on PS4

March 18, 2016

On Wednesday, we learned that Tom Clancy’s The Division sold  over 80,000 copies on PS4 in Japan, according to Media Create. Unfortunately, the Xbox One version did not make the top 20 chart. So we did not know precisely how it did, until today.

Media Create released its top 50 ranking, and the Xbox One version of the game did not manage to make even that. We still learn how much it sold, though, as Media Create shared that about 1,000 copies of the game for Microsoft’s console found a loving Japanese home.

That’s not too surprising, considering that the total installed base of the console is currently sitting at 65,603 in the whole country.

On the other end of the spectrum, we also learn that the PS4 version sold 85.5% of its initial shipment, which is a very flattering result in Japan for a western game. In comparison, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege sold only 23,000 copies in its first week on the shelves in Japan, and 87,000 in total so far.

The Division seems to have clicked much better with the Japanese audience (and with every audience, really), almost matching its fellow Tom Clancy’s game’s lifetime sales in a single week.

RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
