Xbox 360 dominance in Japan will come 'over time'

At Microsoft's Tokyo Game Show keynote, the company was quick to prove it hadn't given up on the territory. The platform holder announced no less than five Xbox-exclusive titles, all of which are being developed by highly venerated Japanese studios.

The story is too old to be commented.

If jrpg exclusives didn't work, then nothing will.

mikeslemonade2859d ago

It's possible but is it worth it? They have already spent billions this generation with the 360 over in Japan, and the result pretty much is meaningless. What if they spent around $10 billion to secure some real exclusives like a Final Fantasy? That will probably get them to selling at the PS3 rate right now, so is it worth it to get the xbox selling 25,000 consoles a week.

when hell freezes over, pigs fly, and aliens make themselves known to the public.

in other words it will NEVER happen.

I thought sony took the PR hype cake but this week M.S have solidified the throne for life.

Handhelds_FTW2859d ago

Has never been so relevant then this moment, to what ingiomar has just written.

niceguywii602859d ago

Dominating Worldwide is good enough.

room4142858d ago

Sony and nintendo did it with their first 2 consoles in this industry.
Looks like microsoft is the dumbest guy in the room.

tacosRcool2857d ago

MS is just weak. Bold claims alongside millions of dollars to support their claim.

I think the sales will improve slightly, but I don't think the 360 will ever 'dominate' in Japan, it's too far behind and the Sony brand is too popular.

gcolley2859d ago

agreed. plus sony would no doubt counter Kinect if it ever took off. just the same as MS and Sony countered the Wii.

plus it is an american brand, just won't happen.

spooky2052859d ago

successful in japan. Isnt apple selling iphones like crazy over there? It was something like 72% marketshare of the smart phone segment. Its not so much the product but as the quality. If the 360 had a much better build quality im sure the japanese would be more forgiving. I dont ever see the xbox brand ever dominate japan. Perhaps they could crave out a nice segment for the market for themselves that could lead to a great market share but dominance? Nah thats way off.

-Mezzo-2859d ago

I don't think he's talking about 360, he said 'Xbox' not 'Xbox 360' maybe he's referring to the success of the next hardware in the Xbox Brand. OHH MY GOD DID HE JUST HINTED AT XBOX 720. lol

Krugsy2859d ago

Phil Spencer's comments may not have been about the 360 (though we dont really know the context), but the article was in fact discussing his comments in relation to the 360.

All_4_One2859d ago

Microsoft is sure running their mouths a lot nowadays. Good luck dominating a region where your voice can barely even be heard.
