I wouldn't say the 360 is kicking ass.. It was on life support but now off it.. I give props to M$ for keeping the 360 in Japan and giving the Japanese games they love compared to their main competition but I dont think M$ will ever crack that market unless Sony and Nintendo stop making game consoles or somehow rebrand the 360 to a japanese brand like Toshiba or Panasonic.

"still kicking ass" no, just finished getting its ass kicked.

masterofpwnage4076d ago
