Microsoft's Xbox 360 sales sunk to a new low in recent Japan sales charts. Media Create Co. on Friday reported that the Xbox successor sold 928 units in Japan. Its not looking good for the 360 in the land of the rising sun...
xbox 360 has some great games. those gamers need to wake up.
goodluck to them cuz the more they stay strong the more sony tries to make our playstation experience better
goodluck to them http://www.qj.net/Sony-Defe...
I can tell you who is part of the "Sony Defense Force" (DJ, etc) the only thing is that they dont get pay for it. It is just natural.
Face it: Wii will fill up any Japanese household in need for a new console
But i'm pretty sure things will look better once all those JRPG's (Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, Trusty Bell) come out.
Here is a link that compares the "Xbox 360", "Wii", and "Playstation 3" searches on google or the past year. They are shown as a line graph as well as bar graphs by cities, regions, and languages. http://www.google.com/trend...
Wow, real scientific. You do realize that this doesn't mean much. People could be searching for xbox 360 walkthroughs, or searching to buy one online, both of which disadvantages the consoles that aren't out yet. Sales charts will be the only way to gauge the success of the consoles.
Hey thats some good info. Yeah, honestly I think when it comes to videogames, Japanese gamers have a clear bias towards anything "foriegn". Lost Odyssey and Blue Dragon will help M$, but not much....because the bottom line is the mass market is loyal to local companies, at least when it comes to videogames they are.
Lets see how things are when the new bundles and japanese based games hit the market.
why would anybody in Japan buy the 360 now without the price drop or the bundle? Now when blue Dragon comes out and the sales are bad then you Sony fangirls can talk.
If a train sim is popular in a country like Japan then it's obvious that there taste for games are way different when compared to the US.
the 360 is getting beat by Gameboy Micro...ouch! that's like getting beat by those Tiger handhelds from the 80s-early 90s. it's like the 360 came out of the womb premature and on life support in Japan. i'll be fair though, after TGS and the new RPGs, there will be a big improvement on sales, but not enough to win 1st IMO though.
care less about japan and there needs i think they should pay more attention to us and start making more great U.S type games because to tell the truth i never liked any japanese game and im not interested in ayn japanese developed game on the 360 im not a raises but i just dont like the type of style they have in games like art,story and such, japanese games just will never apeal to me.
At least they're trying in Japan. I personally hate Japanese RPG's, but it's nice to see the effort by MS to appeal to a different market. I don't really know what else they can do, if Japanese gamers are so stubborn that they won't buy a "foreign" console then it's their loss. Maybe they're just worried about getting their asses handed to them on Live.
Good point. The software shown was immensely better. I don't understand why MS came if they were going to have such a poor display of software.
This is not news and we really need the monthly XBOX360 is selling poorly in Japan posts to stop. We ALL get the point , already. The PS3 is a dog everyone knows it except a handfull of diehards worldwide ( a few million ) time to get over yourselves. Japan is a handheld market if you would do a little research you would notice that 8-10 of the bestselling titles every single month are DS titles in Japan. It's really obvious the Wii will take the spot in Japan. I'm not trying to make you feel bad it's just true. 1. The PS3 is the Dreamcast. It's gonna be a $600.00 dollar trainwreck that you'll regret. Sorry. 2. Wii will take Japan.
