Xbox 360 made little impact on hardware charts in Japan on low software offerings and lack of interest.
Media Create reported Friday that the Xbox successor sold only 1,245 units from May 29 to June 4.
that's a 5 day span...who cares? that's like what 250 a day...I guess it's better than 0 huh?
who cares? that`s the last thing u have to be saying
Well Japanese like to have freak games with young girls in strip stories having sex, and boring MGS4 5 seconds gameplay, movie 30 seconds, 20 seconds gameplay movie 3 minutes.
Japanese are just strange. Let them please buy the PS3 when it comes out... If it comes out. Oh yeah read the newest article about downgrades on PS3, again. It's hilarious
The reason it doesent sell well in Japan is because its an american product and it doesent have any of the wierd games that they like to play and even if it did they would still choose the japanese product.
japanese poeple play weird games??? how about the american empty heads who only like shooters with big guys and big guns in it :S what a stupid country, no one wants your trashy products
One person's "weird" is another person's "innovative". Let's avoid commenting negatively on Japanese game preferences. Japan has an entirely different and homogeneous culture with vastly different tastes than ours.
While the Japanese seem unflinchingly loyal to Sony and Nintendo, they'll eventually come around when Japanese game developers move over to the Microsot camp (whether they want to or not). Unfortunately, I doubt their allengences will shift with the 360 console. The good news is that within six years, the Japanese will move over to Microsoft in large numbers, simply out of necessity.
The bottom line...regardless of loyalty or nationalism, Japanese game developers and gamers alike will eventually be forced to accept Microsoft because the future of gaming (both console and PC) rest squarely with the company with the greatest penetration and technological advantage.
The company from Redmond is currently implenting a strategy of technological convergence that will redefine the future of gaming.
The shift of power has begun. Sony's reign will be over soon.
yes the japs are WIERD VERY STRANGE PEOPLE THEY LOVE 12 YEAR OLD GIRLS ETC ,,,, SO YES HAVING A GAMES MACHINE WITH A LOAD OF SHOOTERS IS VERY GOOD COMPARED TO A CONSOLE WITH WIERD JAP GAMES ETC WITH 12 YEAR OILD GIRLS ALL OVER THE PLACE SORRY MATE BUT THEY ARE WELL ,,,,,, NOT ALL UP THERE
NO u read the latest sales on the console market in the US..Who`s still dominating the charts ..ps2
the 360 is an amazing machine ,,,, why on earth would you still want a ps2 dont make sence as i have a ps2 and got rid of it ,,,, waist of monney thats what it is all sony products are over hyped fact!!
360 is outselling the PS2, and if people are still buying the PS2, it is because the PS3 is never coming out.
I have to agree that they are not buying the 360 because its an American product, however its a great product and its their loss if they sleep on it, they can wait on the ps3 only to find that the 360 was what they have been waiting on all this time.
it would teach japan a lesson not to be racist when buying usa/europe produts.
HAHA you one sad person, why do you come on to this site ??? just to click the lame button on every news story and the cool button on this story.
why dont you fcuk off to the ps3 section . i dont know if ou saw any ps3 footage from E3 ? but our ps3 got pwned in a bigway by microsoft and by nintendo.
riiiiiidge raaaacer ...
and here is this gaint crab in genji 2
poor poor showing.
and japan isnt the epicenter of the gaming world now. so what the japanese buy or dont buy is irrelivent to me, japanese developers have to have a western view when it comes to developing games ..ie lost planet, bluedragon, dead rising.
oh and another thing assassins creed running on a debug 360. and that won best ps3 game lmfao.
what happened to your 7 contollers ?, a gigabit ethernet port, 2 hdmi inputs hmmmm? i repeat that 2 hdmi inputs , 7 controllers.
they are having you for mugs. but HAHA cant see that because he is way too dumb
give us the 360, give them what ever the [email protected] i am just glad we have the 360. god bless america...and any other 360 loving country!
