Home-use Game Machine Market Share in Japan, 2013

I did not imagine that Xbox is horribly unpopular in Japan.

Nikkei Sangyo Shimbun newspaper reported the market share of home-use game machines in 2013 financial year. According to it, the market share of Microsoft was 0.2%. Nintendo was the top-seller, and their market share was 65.1%. Sony (PlayStation) was the second (34.7%). 

Only three players exist in this field, the total share of three (Nintendo, Sony, Microsoftwas 100%. The total shipment was 7.962 million machines.

Personally speaking, my kids have Nintendo (3DS and Wii). I used to have Sony PSP which was a gift from my friend. My family has never had Xbox.
