Honestly I feel they should just focus on XCloud in Japan and XCloud/PC Gamepass in China/Korea.

Xbox Japan hope to do a 'much better job' with the Series X and DOUBLE or even TRIPLE the weekly average sales of Xbox One...

There were talks last gen that Xbox should skip japan, and i think they should have.. selling 1 digit a week is embarrassing for the image, especially given..
what they are saying about XSX doing much better job is just PR..
remember this, and what really happened.

Isn't hard to beat their XBO sales in the far east.

Announce Lost Odyssey 2 and Blue Dragon 2 and they would easily beat their XBO sales.

That's really stretching. MS barely make any games let alone JRPG...

NeoGamer23235d ago

@kreate
You are factually incorrect...

In the past year MS studios or publishing has shipped...

Gears of War 5, Outer Worlds, Ori and the Willow of the Wisps, Bleeding Edge, Gears Tactics, and Minecraft Dungeons.

For not shipping anything that is quite a bit.

We all know how this is going to end. Is has been the same every generation.

Of course it won't do well over there. Doesn't mean you stop trying.

honestly they are better focusing in america since the xbox one even lost the fight vs ps4 there. not to mention worldwide. why focus any effort in japan where you definitely know you don't have any ground to stand on.

"why focus any effort in japan where you definitely know you don't have any ground to stand on."

Because MS´s interest in japanese gaming market goes beyond japanese *local* gaming market, which means more games from Japan on Xbox for a worldwide audience. If you don´t give a damn about them to the point of not release a new console over there, then why should they give a damn about release any game on your console?

We´ll be getting more games and support from japanese devs and studios. Who cares if they eventually end up in third? MS has money to blow. I want games.

Focus more on bringing japanese and other asian MMORPGs to the west, doing that with PSO 2 was a brilliant decision.
