Could Microsoft’s Xbox One Beat the PS4 in Japan?

Sony's (NYSE: SNE  )  PlayStation 4 recently pulled into the lead in the eighth generation console race, beating out Microsoft's (NASDAQ: MSFT  ) Xbox One and Nintendo's (NASDAQOTH: NTDOY  )  Wii U with 6 million PS4 units sold. A main contributor to that victory was the PS4's robust launch in Japan, a home-turf stronghold for Sony and Nintendo and one of Microsoft's weakest markets.

"if Microsoft wants to make an impression in Japan, it needs to understand Japanese gaming"

Like that will happen

Edit: "There are few things that Bill Gates fears. Cloud computing is one of them. It’s a radical shift in technology that has early investors getting filthy rich, and we want you to join them. That’s why we are highlighting three companies that could make investors like you rich. You've likely only heard of one of them, so be sure to click here to watch this shocking video presentation" wtf?

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! That's like saying American's will stop eating fast food!

What's with all the American bashing. Maybe you should of used "Murcia" so you could sound more like a as$ hat. How about we say, "its like saying the Japanese will stop eating rice" or "the towel heads will stop trying to kill people" or maybe " the British will start to not have nasty teeth". See a pattern here. They all make you sound stupid and ignorant.

i still don't get where people get this notion that Xbox can break into the Japanese market? the first xbox was a complete failure there. An with the 360, did we forget The Last Remnant, Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, getting console rights to Final Fantasy XII MMO during that generation, scooping up multiple Japanese IPs that used to be PlayStation exclusives in Devil May Cry 4, Tekken 6, Resident Evil 5, Final Fantasy XIII, hell what about the Monster Hunter MMO that they desperately tried to use to break into the Japan ?

Microsoft has tried a lot of different things and they all failed. So no i don't see xbox beating PS4 in japan.

"Microsoft has tried a lot of different things and they all failed. So no i don't see xbox beating PS4 in japan."

Especially since the Xbox One is even less tailored to the Japanese market. It is clearly built with the Western market in mind

Yeah sure why not. And someday maybe dogs will stop licking their private parts. Smh

I'd have less need for a girlfriend if I could lick my own privates.

I doubt it. Japanese tastes in games are so odd to the majority of Americans and companies like Microsoft.

Microsoft is out of touch with its own market what makes you think Xbone will ever succeed in Japan?
