Im not sure..unless it consistently releases RPGs each and every week where it wont sell 25+k and then fall off till they "restock", then that milestone might take quite awhile.

Uuuhhh yeah....

I don't think so...

Microsoft thinks they'll sell Japan on a few average RPGs?

I'm not sure about that.

That '360 is Japan's best option'...

Otherwise, it will be sad for MS Japan gaming department.. =)))

EDIT: @gaffyh, VG uses Famitsu and Media Create numbers for Japan, so you can use VG in this case as a source. It`s around 700k. =)

gaffyh4074d ago

MS needs an RPG every week to keep constant momentum in Japan. btw does anyone how much units they are at now? (not vgchartz hopefully)

beoulve4074d ago

I'll give them PS3 weekly sale number, so they have 700k now and they need 300k. Selling 8k per week which mean they still have 37.5 weeks to go which mean 8 more month(supposed to be 9, but take one off for holiday season) to reach 1 million. If they fell back to 3k, it will take more than a year to reach the target. Way too early to tell.

And desperate people say and do desperate things, guys.

Hahaha

juuken4074d ago

Here we go again.

Microsoft PR spin again.

Just because you have occasional sale jumps doesn't mean the Japanese want the 360 as the best option.

sak5004074d ago

Here we go again the trolls are back in 360 news. Why the heck dont you leave the 360 news alone? Can't find any ps3 news?

ON TOPIC: MS had given up on japan before but seeing that pss isn't doing good there as well has given MS a reason to put out a good fight there and even if it fails there it will give ps3 a run for its money in sony's home territory.

Ben10544074d ago

listed in the PS3 section, so dont blame us

juuken4074d ago (Edited 4074d ago )

sak500 first of all, this is in the *INDUSTRY* section so I suggest you learn how to read. Second of all, this is *my* opinion and I will voice it if I want. If you have a problem with that then kindly ignore me.

I don't have a problem with you if you disagree but don't put down my comments thank you very much.

I only said that because whenever an rpg comes out on the 360, the sales go up one week and come down another week. Unless Microsoft is getting rpg's out the door every single week, Japanese people will not be interested in a 360.

A game like FFXIII however is something of which the Japanese are actually waiting for.

These are actually appetizers for the main course.

Lazy One: Assuming much? I did read the article. I always read an article before I comment. Stop assuming I didn't read it when there's a possibility that I did.

Look at the disagrees fly!

The Lazy One4074d ago

But it has nothing to do with the article. It's not spin. Read the whole article and not just the headline and you'll see it's not quite as big headed as the headline makes it seem.

ToastyMcNibbles4074d ago (Edited 4074d ago )

relax you sak...500
juuken is just giving her opinion about the article not saying sh!t like "360 suxors..teh ps3 is teh hottness" een though i do agree with the second part of that sentence haha

Blakzhuk4074d ago

It won't be long before MS takes over Japan.

Normally I'm cool with how MS does buisness and stuff but this has got to be the BIGGEST spin ever lol! Total ignorance..

Companies always get a bit uppity when they get a little boost after being on the ropes, take it for what it is. Sony did the same thing.

Taking a kicking from your competitors for so long puts you into "big shot mode" when you have something to celebrate.

Is MS gonna tell Japan that Banjo is an RPG?
