Does Microsoft even have a ******* strategy for Japan or what? I don't think so.

TitanFall is ranked #5 on Amazon Japan's best seller video games and #1 in the Xbox catagory.

Oh wait, did I say Xbox catagory, I meant Xbox 360 aka it's the 360 version that's keeping Microsoft relevant.

The Xbox One, which is what Microsoft should be focusing on selling to the Japanese, is no where to be found. Titanfall for the X1 is ranked #12,345 for Best Seller (Video Games).

It's like they're purposefully sabotaging their efforts in order to close up shop in Japan.

Xbox one is not out in japan what are u talking about
#3HorridhalPosted 4/8/2014 10:39:06 PM
Why would they try hard to sell what will amount to a handful of units?

Japanese people don't really like :
A) Other countries companies
B) consoles.


Even sony isn't doing as well as people expected. The market is dominated by mobile gaming.

The japanese market is much bigger on handhelds than anything.

They probably need games for it there first don't you think? No one there is going to fudge out on titanfall for 10 hours a day. They gots different tastes and right now they can't deliver. They will build up a small library before launching to try and have the best market penetration most likely.

I wouldn't bother if I was MS
The 360 sold around 1.6 million in 8 years in Japan
The X1 would sell like 500k lifetime if they're lucky

If they were smart they go after Korea. Load up on MMO's.

Warning: I have a different views about stuff so try not to get worked up. OK?

The strategy is don't lose money, accomplished by not releasing. It's a better business model than 360 Japan.
