550 copies on xbone? Ouch. Thats a bit of an embarrassment for Microsoft to be honest.

Yeah,the tourist season is over in japan.

Your comment is stupid Xbox has never done well in Japan period. Japan has always been PlayStation.

Its almost not even worth bring Xbox to japan

I think S-E, Level 5,capcom, from software and a couple of other major japanese devs disagree with you. The reason why all three of those developers are making (or have made) ps4 exclusives is because of poor sales in Japan of the xbox one. These devs want to sell there game in there homeland. I mean whats the point of making a japanese version on xbox if its going to sell around 500 copies? I eman you can say sure it will sell decent in the rest of the world but thats a lot of lost worldwide sales plus lack of sales in a country where there own fans want there games. They are going to support there own fans first and foremost and to abandon Japan Ms would be hurting themselves even more and probably give a couple more Japanese exclusives to Sony.

To be fair though its all about risk reward right now with Microsoft as they cannot really afford to advertise in Japan as even with the tiniest advertising budget they will lose money as they aren't even selling a thousand consoles so they have to go for broke if they ever want to get big games like bloodbourne on their console in the future.

DialgaMarine1098d ago

Wooooow... I remember how so many people were predicting the XBone would sell better than PS4 in Japan after PS4's rocky start there. lol...

Nobody ever said that. Ever.

Actually thats not true. People did say that. But in general Xbox fans and PlayStation fans with basic reasoning skills correctly predicted the real outcome.

For reference check out the old Xbox One Japanese pre order stories published here by Dual Shockers.

Really? Xbox has never done well in Japan, most people who claimed that were reminded of that :p

S2Killinit1098d ago

is that even worth it for the developer? but i guess as long as other regions are not the same situation.

StevenSeagul1098d ago

What I don't understand is why that Xbox One owner bought the game 550 times.

lodossrage1097d ago

ok, that was uncalled for.

I admit, that WAS funny. Still foul though
