If we buy Japanese consoles why don't they buy American consoles

WiiU sales might be bad here but PS3/360 sales are good; one is Japanese and one is American.
In Japan even the Wii U does better than the 360. Like far better.

What gives?

OK I know the only "American console" that's out is the 360, but there's also PC which is mostly American.

evil american corporations bent on global domination.i think jpn just likes to buy things in within there own boarders as much as they can.there could be some xenophobic fear there i think.or a sign of superiority.

They buy iDevices. The XB line just doesn't interest them. Nothing to do with being American.

I'd be more interested to see how western developed games do over there. I know a lot of japanese publishers bring games from the west over there.

It is actually simple:

Nintendo/Sony/PC/Apple ect. is made with specific consumers in mind, wich are in general internationally interchangable.
Microsofts XBox is made with american gamers in mind, the European market can easily adapt since it is used to USA-stuff, but the japanese market just does not.
