I know right. MS will do better this gen as we all know Japan cant get enough fantasy football and halo.

This is why MS should exit Japan and quit wasting money there its not worth it.
They could use that money and invest it in other projects and markets.
I dont expect any huge sales for any console the country is in a 3 digit recession and the japanese economy is shrinking.

right put that money in more timed exclusive dlc,kinect games,halo spinoff,etc.

I'm a PS gamer, Microsoft are seen as uncool in Japan, every one knows Xbox does not do well in that territory...even Elvis Presley, Tupac, Biggie and Brucey Lee knows Xbox sucks in Japan....old old news....pffft!

**If MS swallowed some pride and 'LICENSED' Xbox to Panasonic, JVC or even Korean owned Samsung...they could have a logo 'Powered by Xbox Live Japan' and make the X1 smaller, more curvy, then maybe, just maybe, Xbox can find a place in the Japanese market place.

Apple products are very very popular in Japan, so the 'American' product excuses are redundant
