Should Microsoft even bother releasing xbox in Japan this time ?

I don't know why they bother, unless something drastically changes, then the Japanese aren't going to buy the system again.

I think even if the xbone was $200 less, I don't think it wold be popular there.

What do you think ?

sure, they should... probably shouldn't break the bank on marketing and contracts though...

I think you don't deserve to call yourself Bruce Lee on these forums.

The Xbox One board should be renamed to the Official "Troll Here" board.

I see your point. Americans don't even want this trash.

Well I owned the original xbox since launch and a 360 since launch, I just don't own a xbox1 this time but still interested in how it's going.

But MS has had that problem selling xbox to Japan ever since they came into the market, I'm just wondering why they continue to ignore the xbox over there and if MS should just say STUFF IT, WE WON'T RELEASE IT IN JAPAN THIS TIME.

If it didn't release in Japan, there would be very little reason for most Japanese developers to release games on the console.

Isn't there still a lot of places they haven't released it in comparison to the competition. Even if they don't do better in any(we know they won't in Japan)it's better to have some sold than none at all. As far as Japan goes developer support is the reason to release it there.

Yea I don't know why MS is bothering with Japan. They probably will sell like 100 consoles if that in Japan.

Because Japan makes some good games that we want on both consoles, not just the PS4....?
