Nice, I really hope they do better than last time.keeping my fingers crossed and hoping to hear more about the upcoming titles from japanese devs too. i really need my lost odysee,blinx and otogi fix. Hopefully MS can provide me with these and even more soon enough.

Best of luck to Phil and his team. Hoping to see some great content.

Microsoft need more than luck mate. They need a miracle more than Oberyn needs a helmet

christocolus1629d ago

Luck, miracles and good wishes...I wish them all of it.

"Microsoft Pushing Xbox One in Japan ..."

Good luck with that ;)

Im going to laugh if Microsoft takes the japanese market. PS4 is weak in that country right now.
Sony should think next time when they release a console in japan, after they release in the US. It would piss me off if microsoft release the X1 in Japan on November first, then release in February here.
It is a japanese console that doesnt have many japanese games.

we all know damn well xbox will fail in all asian territories. they stick with import only.. lets be real here.. they'll stick with sony.

kreate1628d ago

and asian love american products.

dale_denton1628d ago

really? i don't see asians driving a damn ford or chevy lmao.

kreate1628d ago (Edited 1628d ago )

really? cuz i just visited korea and taiwan about a month ago and both countries ive seen quite a few fords and chevy's on the streets.

i mean i seen it with my owns eyes. i dont know what else to say.

as well as mcdonalds,burger king, kfc, popeyes, tgif, bennigans, outback steakhouse, iphones, apple computers, windows software, ipads, as well as all the major shopping brands like MK, coach, lacoste etc etc.

i even saw costco there... asians eating costco pizza and drinking coke and pepsi.

the movie theatres were packed with american movies. building 101 in taipei was advertising spiderman2. they even had a spiderman on the side of the building of 101.

even their military are based off of US military. both countries buy american fighter jets and aircrafts.

how much more american can these asians get?

Rimgal1629d ago

Well, good luck with that.

OlgerO1629d ago

Yeah good luck to them. When you look at the Japanese weekly charts you cant help but feel that the time of japan is over

truefan11629d ago

Console sales have been down in Japan because they are waiting for the XB1.

XiSasukeUchiha1629d ago

Dude are you being serious right now, the answer is no bro, it's just because PS4 has no Japanese games out yet bro, get your logic right lol

darthv721629d ago

your comment needs another "bro" at the end. It should read like this:

"Dude are you being serious right now, the answer is no bro, it's just because PS4 has no Japanese games out yet bro, get your logic right bro, lol"

MasterCornholio1629d ago

I agree with you with Truefan being a dudebro.

Kingoftherodeo1629d ago

so if they are waiting on japanese games and xbox gives them the japanese games first. does that mean they buy xbox?

christocolus1629d ago (Edited 1629d ago )


Lol. Dude you just cracked me up. I do wish them the best though.I really want to see MS invest heavily into nice japanese exclusives which will also be released in the west.

Back to my E3 count down. 2days and a few hours to go.


Lol.I actually think truefan was joking.console sales have generally been on a decline in japan for a while now.also great comment by the way.I actually understood everything you said. Nice.


Lmao.. XD

morganfell1629d ago

No, no he was not joking. Look at his post history. He was completely serious...

Spotie1629d ago

You know damn well he was definitely not joking.

GameDev11629d ago

hahahahaha yeah thats why

Anyway Great job from MS, you never know if don't you try

MasterCornholio1629d ago (Edited 1629d ago )

I bet the PS4 and the Wii U will outsell the Xbox One in Japan and I'm basing my prediction off the Xbox brands performance in that country.


Have you seen his comment history? Then you should know that he isn't joking with that comment. He is merely delusional like always.

GameDev11629d ago (Edited 1629d ago )

You are some sort of super insider analysis guy

Tidux, Shinobi, Listen to this guy

snookiegamer1629d ago (Edited 1629d ago )


Dudebro, you just made me laugh so hard!! Actually, I have 3 girlfriends over and they're not even gamers like me, and they Lol'd hard too!!!

Dang these Kids are funny LOOL

sic_chops1629d ago

Haha.. He's just trying to stir up stuff. Dead last again.

OrangePowerz1629d ago

Insert Fry Not sure if joking or serious pic.

rocketpanda1629d ago

Once they need new door stoppers in Japan the Xbox One will suffice.

ger23961629d ago

You forgot to add /s at the end of your comment.

FITgamer1629d ago

You say some pretty ridiculous s***, but i know there is no way you typed that out with a straight face.

MegaRay1629d ago

Im not sure if I should +bubble you for funny or -bubble you for trolling lol

Seriously that was funny even tho I am sure you was serious :/

kreate1628d ago

This time is going to be a different story. I think Microsoft will find ally succeed in Japan. They have the advantage : games and features.

KonsoruMasuta1629d ago

They hardly have any Japanese exclusives. What do they expect Japanese gamers to play? Ryse?

Blaze9291629d ago

oh so you know about their exclusive lineup? Please tell us more.

GameDev11629d ago

They will get some JRPG's exclusives as Phil Spencer said and visual novels which didn't go well

But tbh the Xbox 360 had some Japanese exclusives and well.............

OrangePowerz1629d ago

I don't see any feature advantage for the Japanese market. The X1 is even more US centric than the 360.

king_ps41628d ago

Nope the Xbox one sucks. The Japanese do not want that garbage.

pecorre1629d ago

If the PS4 and the Wii U are struggling, I don't even understand why Microsoft even release the Xb1 in japan.

OrangePowerz1629d ago

To get better support from Japanese studios. If they don't release in Japan they would get less Japanese games that also come out in the west.
