Japan is pretty big country for gaming, Sony and Nintendo get a huge portion of their profits from Japan, but why not Microsoft. In this article we examine why the Xbox isn’t doing very well in Japan and how they could improve their showing in the country.
sorry but it will never be successful in japan...i wish it would be. it would mean more japanese games for the system..but with the new tax hike even the ps4 will sell less.
If its even possible.
I mean even the PS4 is quickly falling off their radar.
Whatever Japanese exclusive games MS announces needs to make its way state side and in Europe to ensure sales.
I love Japanese games especially third person action titles like NInja Gaiden, Vanquish, Bayonetta and Ninja Blade on 360 etc...
Like I said whatever AAA Jap exclusive they have in the works needs to make stateside. If they won't buy them then I sure as hell will.
I'm hard pressed to believe Xbox One will outsell even Wii U in Japan in the long run. Xbox is just not a strong brand there in spite of what dedicated fans live in Japan.
By not shipping there
Instead of focusing on Japan.
Microsoft needs to focus on the Asian continent in general.
If it can succeed in Asia, it can succeed in Japan.
