Who thought it'd sell a ton in Japan?
It's day one tho....
Even bad games and consoles have a few people buying them day one...


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.


Tells you a lot about a troll when another troll's troll topic fails and he tries to troll it in a new direction. Did I mention trolls?

Japan usually avoids consoles now. They even have a word to insult Playstation and another word to insult Xbox gamers. High electric prices and lack of room to use the Kinect don't help. Plus mobile gaming there is exploding and them being somewhat xenophobic.

Kind of shown in the Media Create numbers when the 3DS and Vita are the top sellers by about double.

The WiiU still managed to outsell the 360 lifetime months ago in Japan.

So while consoles might not be the hottest thing, it says something when a console with "no gamez/3rd party (according to this board)" [Nintendo] outsells a console with games like ToV, LO, etc. [Microsoft]

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.


As bad as the Xbox will do I Japan it will do higher Numbers in Japan alone than in all the Scandinavian countries combined . And in any case anyone in Scandinavia that wanted one has one as its easy to import across Europe due to the same currency.

Looks like console gaming truly is dead if even Japan isn't buying game consoles. It looks the Xbox One will be my last gaming console ever since game consoles won't be around much longer after the 8th generation. I truly cannot believe that this day has come. It is probably for the better for me though as I can move on with my life with more important and meaningful things like getting married, traveling, buying a house and all of that other "grown up" crap. :(

Yes, in fact it is demonstrated pretty regularly here on this board. Not a big change from the 360 board I'm afraid.

Reviews? Polls? Sales? Resolution? FPS? Nothing matters now except for what the competition does not have.
