Is MS not selling in SA? And are they the only ones? Are Sony and Nintendo not there either but SA doesn't care?

Unfortunately Japan has a lot of developers so MS needs to have a presence there. However, if it was up to me they would of never even launched the 360 there and just focused on regions who appreciate the system. Beyond Capcom most Japan stuff has been crap this gen anyway for the 360.

Do you think it has anything to do with the systems reliability I'm mean come on just because the fanboys don't want to believe it but the Japanese don't like unreliable hardware and to be honest I think the only reason the 360 sold any systems in the Asian sections of the world is because of the RPGs they were able to secure. The Xbox Bombed in Japan because it was to big and now the new system just isn't reliable enough for them to justify a buy maybe 3s a charm and they might just get something right for once.
