I know Xbox hasn't done well in Japan, like ever, but this makes me worry for its future there. I'd love for the Japanese to be able to play on the One. The One is region free, isn't it? So they can import at least.

It won't make a difference.
First, FPS is not really popular in Japan.
Second, the number of XBone sold in japan would be miniscule that Bungie shouldn't bother to release there anyway.

Maybe that's because Bungie is doing this. Just consider that for a few moments.

I never really kept track of how popular FPS games were in Japan. I know they enjoy games like Visual Novels, JRPG's, etc., basically anything that is only developed and released in their country...

Destiny is like a mix of Halo and Borderlands. Neither of which did amazing in Japan.

I'm just looking at some of the sales of games in Japan on the PS4 and the best one is Knack which sold around 410k, which is quite good. the rest of the games didn't even get past 100k. How many sales has the PS4 got in Japan anyway? I haven't even checked.
