Why was the X1 launch successful?

I have seen poll after poll on gamefaqs. All of them indicated that hardly anyone was interested in the Xbox One. So why then did the X1 have a successful launch?

This place is crawling with weeaboos and they aren't the majority, not by a long shot.

Yeah, the internet in general isn't the best place to gauge public opinion. Otherwise, Snakes on a Plane would have broken box office records.

Gamefaqs never has been and never will be a true indication of the majority.

It's got mainstream appeal.

Which is ironic as the X1 has the Capcom exclusive, the fighting game influenced by Asian movies/fighting games and Forza which Asians love (not as much as Gran Turismo but it's pretty high up there).
Woops, almost forgot freaking Crimson Dragon.

13 countries to be exact. DOWN from 21 before the delay.

PS4 isn't even out in EU or JPN yet. You lose. =)
