PS4 is substantially closing the gap against its closest competitor.

Japan is the only region where Wii U sales are up YOY.

Xbox One would be lucky to sell pass a 100k in this market.

I remember one or two gaming journalists saying that only hardest of the hardcore own X1's over there.

Yea, I generally imagine most of the consoles are sold to U.S. military stationed there.

A decent percentage are probably collectors who buy everything.

Westerners probably imported the launch console rather than wait a year for the Japanese xbone.

XB1 needs a Dragon Quest / Pokemon type of RPG for Japan, and they will sell 300,000 consoles.

Xbone is abandoned in japan

Spotie1210d ago

It would have to have been adopted first to be abandoned there. Unless you're speaking of Microsoft abandoning it.
