Why should Japan trust the Xbox brand?

Even if M$ does make some Japanese centrically focused games on their next platform,
M$ will just make it multi platform, or streamable to any device, especially if it doesn't sell well in Japan immediately. So why buy an Xbox? Like it or not, exclusives sell hardware. 3rd party developers aren't selling hardware, so it makes sense for them to go multi platform.

Why should xbox try to sell to Japan?

Its a major gaming market with a number of popular studios?

Nevermind that MS *STILL* has a problem making 1st party games. Making single player games.

So Microsoft's marketing is pitting this as an us vs them issue.

Typical, Microsoft can't win there so are trying to damage Japanese gaming by trying to say it's Japanese peoples fault for not buying xbox instead of looking at the reason why Japanese people don't want xbox.

I hope Nintendo is reading these articles and realizing that siding with Microsoft against Sony was the biggest mistake for themselves and Japanese gaming. Microsoft will stab them in the back as soon as they think they have an edge.

I hope every single Microsoft plan for next gen fails spectacularly, it's whats best for the industry. And no we don't need competition, at least not competition like Microsoft brings which is just to attack and destroy everyone else until they can gain control over the industry.

Xbox should focus on getting more japanese MMOs to the west it's clear SP games aren't they're thing.
