Rather than wasting both their time and their money, they ought to arrange to do things like this in places that actually care about either product.

why cant they do both?

its important they at least gain some traction in japan even if its small to show japan devs they aren't giving up on the territory.

Minecraft acquisition and X1 Japan launch is money well wasted.

Maybe this is something unique in Japan only to try and get some sales...

i don't like 3rd party devs positioning themselves with either sony or microsoft. just release the game in all its glory on both to the best you can do on both. didnt like it with destiny on ps4, dont like it with ea on xb.
might explain the ps4 having the same res as xb1 unlike most other 3rd art games i guess.
