Xbox One in Japan will Coordinate Your Clothes, Teach You Golf and Deliver Your Pizza

Microsoft Japan released a list of the Xbox One apps which will be available at the console’s launch on September 4th. Many of them are similar to the western versions of the console, but some are rather peculiar, and definitely very specific to the Japanese market. (Xbox One)

But will it have games with enough appeal to the Japanese market to sell the consoles? Fingers crossed, Microsoft will invest a little in the Japanese market like they did with the 360. I'd love for a new Chromehounds for example, or maybe even a new Tenchu game seeing as the last one was a 360 exclusive.

That commercial they had last week or so showed they still don't get the market.

Why advertise a bunch of western games that don't appeal to Japanese gamers... in a Japanese commercial?
aiBreeze  +   423d ago
What games did they showcase? Tried youtubing the commercial but no success. Being honest though, other than Sunset Overdrive, I can't think of many games that would appeal to the Japanese.

@ aibreeze

From my understanding forza 5 and forza horizon should also do well over there because they love racing games

If Tenchu goes Xbone exclusive I riot.

I'd love to see an updated Tenchu but I can't say I'd feel a thing if it went to XB1 exclusively.

Xbox one is gonna do amazing in japan, Microsoft won't let it's japan market down!
MysticStrummer  +   423d ago
We'll see, but Japan seems to be moving away from consoles and more toward mobile gaming. This has been the case since before the newer consoles were ever released or even revealed. XB1 could sell better there than every other console and still not sell a whole lot.

How will Xbox deliver a pizza to you? I thought that's what delivery guys are for.

With Kinect, Xbox One can order a pizza for you, even if you didn't ask for one.
MysticStrummer  +   423d ago
A random pizza commercial might cause Kinect to order pizza.

When jrpg like tales and persona are exclusive to the playstation, i really doubt the xbone will get wortwhile jrpg games aside from big names like ff and kingdom hearts. Certain fans will be in denial but the xbone will most likely meet the same fate as the 360.

The comments here are stupid. Come on guys, do you even Japan ?

Xbox One will get me a waifu for sure! And finally senpai will notice me <3
