It seems like things aren't looking to great for the XBOX One In Japan already...
What will MS do? I doubt they'll take a laid back approach seeing how they were pretty active to try and make a turn around in the past 6 months.

they'll buy all the exclusives because they have BILLIONS of dollars!

Is anyone REALLY surprised with this?. The main question is would it sell better than Xbox/Xbox 360 on 1st week in Japan?.

Still surprised why they decided to release it in Japan before, I don't know, the second half of Europe?
Scandinavia is getting it first tomorrow.

I'm positive "a few" people in Japan bought an Xbox One today.

Yeah, just look at the PS4, okay launch, but then it was Flop City.

I don't even know why MS even tried when PS4 was flopping almost out of the gate.

Tells you a lot about the PS4 when it doesn't even need Japan in order to outsell the Xbone and in fact become one of the fastest and best selling consoles ever.

Fastest, yes, but you should wait before calling it the best selling.
