Newsbrief: The Xbox One launched in Japan last week, and according to sales data from Famitsu, it wasn't exactly the greatest console launch ever.

Famitsu says that the Xbox One sold 23,562 units in its first four days, as translated by NeoGAF. In comparison, the PlayStation 4 managed 322,083 unit sales in its first two days.

More comparisons: The Wii U sold roughly 308,570 units in its first two days, and the original Xbox 360 sold 62,135 units in its first two days. Of course, it's worth keeping in mind that both Sony and Nintendo are Japanese companies.
