No 360 will never hit 2 mil. in Japan, but people in north america are the only ones that count... just ask any bot.

This will get me disagrees but, this is no surprise for sony. The brand carries plenty of loyalty. It may lag a bit behind previous playstation systems but it will get there. Move may be the golden ticket to "move" them ahead of nintendo. They will do with move what nintendo has not been able to do with the wii. Support both casual AND core gamers alike.

I am actually more impressed at the 360 passing 1 million in japan than the ps3 passing 5. Not hating just seeing it for what it be expected.
