I just don’t see Japan ever following the Xbox 360’s worldwide popularity.
While 45 000 is a decent enough take for first day sales it really does pale in comparison to the 2.7 million that were shipped in the US. What I don’t understand however is why does Microsoft keep on punting money into the Japanese market that could be better used else where?
For the same amount of money they could have rolled out Live support to us and most of Eastern Europe and I am pretty sure that they shipped more than 45 000 copies in all of these territories combined.
