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 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.

trywizardo1199d ago

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.

Dread1199d ago (Edited 1199d ago )

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.

"And Xbox one is here, by the dvd's, the PS2, and, the porn.."

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

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.
