GameRevolution on the scene at the Japanese Xbox One launch. Different game shops' first-day sales numbers and displays.
lol we get it, no one in japan likes xbox so thank you captain obvious.
While it reveals the state of affairs and the uphill climb for Microsoft in the region, this says far more about the state of "next-gen" gaming as a whole. This is not just an Xbox problem.
So the xone isn't selling in Japan hardly surprising, anyone who thought it would do otherwise are simply deluding themselves.
It's next to the porn. xD!
It's next to the porn and off in a hidden corner because buying one is embarrassing/for pervs. No one wants to be seen with it. I'm actually surprised, I'm not surprised that it isn't selling well but the actual numbers of 0-2 sold per store is insane. Makes it sound like it's going to sell under 100 consoles day 1. If it sells any less than 1000 MS should just pack up and stop wasting time and money attempting to sell anything in Japan. The cost involved could be put to better use.
Yea, even the ouya would have launched better than this.
I feel sorry about Japanese retailers - how are they gonna sell all those boxes now?
those posts are like "hit me while im down" we already know that X1 is not gonna sell in japan ...
Some people should have kept their expectations low instead of hyping up the Xbox One beating the PS4 in Japan. But there were only a tiny number of N4G posters who said that. Anyways I agree with you that we don't need a thousand articles that announce the Xbox Ones situation in Japan.
No one said that MS would beat sony in Japan. Please do not spread bull to make MS look stupid. if I am wrong then show me who did pleaase.
this is n4g. i expect 10 articles like this a day!
"And Xbox one is here, by the dvd's, the PS2, and, the porn.." LOL
But, but, but wait till they release in unreleased territories they'll outsell ps4. Blind ppl don't understand, thy didn't release in the other territories because they knew those sales would be abysmal.
Damn the #Vita had a pretty nice section compared my #gamestop crazy! But that's embarrassing for Microsoft though!! Wow
Hashtags don't work in here #SMH
It just goes to show you, everything has a specific market. Japan has ton of vita offerings, where as GameStop has like 10 games lol. That's why I'm always ordering import vita games, similar to why I would play import PS1 games back in the day. Anyhow, it will take some special exclusives for Microsoft to make noise in Japan. I mean really unique titles that cater to that market.
It looks they using X1 as an escape goat for how horrible consoles sales are in general. Stores were completely empty. Anyone has an answer for that.
Console sales are miserable there yes, but the video is demonstrating how they are handling the xbox one in general. it isn't like he's mocking the system or its users.
Yeah the next gen consoles in general over there are sucking. It's funny to see how different markets favor different items. The ps4/xb1 don't look like they're getting as much love as the handhelds.
Once the Ps4 gets some Jrpg's in the mix, they'll be selling at a faster rate. As of now there's nothing that caters to the Japanese market in terms of the current gen consoles.
True. It's all about the games.
It looks like you're using console sales in Japan as an "escape goat" for the XB1 having an abysmal launch. Even though console sales aren't doing great, the PS4 and Wii U at least saw respectable launches. The XB1 launch is like a regular day for the PS2 right now.
How do you know based off pictures?. Lol
Damn that's rough.
Wow, that's crazy.
I wish we had such a Vita game section (I like those Japanese games)
Screw the new games let me take a look at that Dreamcast Saturn section.
Some timeless gems in there.
I think really think Japan does not deserve any consoles. They used to be cool but South Korea and Hong Kong has taken their stride. No wonder Sony launched in the US before JAPAN.
lol spid3r6. They can't have em. smh Maybe you don't deserve a console
I you would make a product and try to push it to a country does not want any part of it?? The answer would be no.....I guarantee it!
wait what... Japan still has some of the best games to date...MGS:PP is going to be beast, Bloodborne another monster...Freedom Wars I've been waiting for ever for. You sound upset at Japan but I don't understand why...different markets equal different tastes.
How are South Korea and Hong Kong contributing to the Video game industry? If you think that Xbox One is selling like hotcakes in the rest of Asia, then you are deluded.
'No wonder sony launched in the US before JAPAN' Your are absolutely right! if they were to launch in japan first, it would not not have sold well like it did in the US. 'I really think japan does not deserve any consoles' ?
Ps1 was selling very poorly in Japan when it came out..it startet to sell like a hotcakes after 1 year when some JRPGs on came out,, https://www.youtube.com/wat... so unique games never heard of before
my reaction: http://i.imgur.com/ulapP12....
Xbox One could be twice as powerful as PS4 and half the price, it still wouldn't sell in Japan.
It's with the DVDs? Lol That's some fast camera movements. My eyes were hurting!
It's a very western console that doesn't quite hit that Japanese market well enough.
Which is mind boggling why Microsoft hasn't just cut the cord with Japan.
well now we know where the vita games are. no one cares here in the west!
This is not a surprise. How many times must it be stated. JAPAN DON"T LIKE XBOX.
I wish Xbox One all the succes in JP... no sarcasm! Love the Vita section!... that´s like a candyshop for me.
