The japanese have a strong nationalistic pride, so 99% of them wont buy an American console. Then you have to remember that the Wii U and PS4 are selling like **** there. Japan only wants handhelds.

This is unsuprising given MS's relationship with Japan, but still pretty sad for them.

You know consoles in Japan are in trouble when Vita is crushing them


<\3. Love my Vita... Poor thing never got a chance

Why even bother, Japan ain't interested in bro games and FPS
crap, plus all the good TV stuff it has is only for the US.....such a fail.

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 will steal sony's games with money bags, meanwhile 3DS beats the hell out of a console that does 1080p oh well

A Microsoft marketing official told AFP the company expects sales will pick up as more titles are released towards the end of the year.
"We have high expectations as this (machine) is loaded with graphics that will surely satisfy game players," he said.


Sales will pick up because its... loaded... with graphics?

Miscrosoft should've just ignored japan and focused entirely on US/Europe. OR, they should've had some actual games that appeal to the japanese market, like that Sacebound game (which looks f***ing fantastic)

I guess Microsoft dared to launch Xbone in Japan because they have one, if not more, games in development right now that will do to Xbone what Idolmaster series did to 360.

All they need is a few waifu cult games and the consoles will still sell somewhat.
