The debut of Forza Motorsport 2 in Japan was unable to boost sales of Xbox 360 hardware in Japan..

The only regions I would care about is the US and Europe.

If you only care about US, XBOX 360 will beat PS3 in my opinion. Don't get your hope too high on Europe, thing doesn't look very promising for XBOX 360.

lol what a retard. Half of the best games in the gaming hisotry came out from japan. (resident evil, final fantasy, devil may cry etc) You don't care about japan because 360 sells like crap over there? Yeah, that's probably why.

I honestly don't care about Japanese sales either, they are into bizaar quirky games these days. Those said franchises ALL had western gamers in mind. They were all western inspired, especially Resident Evil, it's mocking American Corporations and borrowed the zombie idea that originated from American horror movies. Devil May Cry was meant for the wester gamer in mind as the whole series was developed in English voice with Japanese subs. FF is probably the only fanchise geared toward the Japanese audience but still geared to appeal to the wester gamer. Well the japanese is a country with handheld gamers. Their gaming direction isn't toward realism, and Forza is a little bit to 'real' for them to be wiggin out about.

I find it funny.

Both MS and Sony improved...but only Sony got kudos for it.
Sony improved by 2,000 units and MS improved by 500 units.

The big test will see if the Sony numbers stay up and if MS numbers can supprass the 3k next week.

It's not doing good either because of a lack of games but it's still doing 4-5 times better than the 360. Once the quality titles pump out, it will sell like hotcakes, mark my words. On the other hand, the 360 will still sell like crap regardless of how many games it has, since most of which are fps. (It's true!)
