Ah yes, it will never be enough or even a good enough start. Just gotta keep up the negativity.

And they have been trying to get more eastern games, right? Final fantasy ports, CrossfireX, phantasy star, MGSV and future konami games, D4 from SWERY, Kingdom Hearts 3, Bandai Namco support, Valkyria chronicles games, Tales of Vesperia and plenty more.

Who cares, support is support dude. Its gotta start somewhere. You dont need an entire list of exclusives from Japan, just getting port support is a good start for a western based company.

The next Xbox would be lucky to sell over 200K in Japan

Microsoft can get all the support they want, but it’s nigh impossible to change the mind of the Asian market’s consumers.

Xbox still has a significant presence in other markets though.

- In Europe Xbox 360 & Xbox One sold more than any other Nintendo home console except Wii
- In RoW territories Xbox 360 & Xbox One sold more than any other Nintendo system except DS & Wii

By that logic, you’d be saying that the rest of the world aside from North America and Japan don’t care about most of Nintendo’s systems.

I hope you realize that this move is not about the Japanese market, its about bringing a classic Japanese game back home to xbox in the US. Its almost like you didn't read the article...

Phil bringing home a true classic.

Xbox One and PC with crossplay!

A timed exclusive won't help you, but it's a step

How about helping Mistwalker make video game console games again, instead of just cell phone games.
