Poll: Let's Predict how bad the Xbox One sells in Japan thread. (58 votes)

1 million at launch week 16%
600,000-700,000 at launch week 2%
500,000 at launch week 7%
300,000-350,000 at launch week 3%
150,000-200,000 at launch week 7%
<150,000 at launch week 66%

We are almost in the "Months between February and August" vague time frame Microsoft gave for the Japanese (and chines but that's a different story) launch.

Now for comparison the Xbox first sold 230,000 the first week, and the Xbox 360 sold 368,000 at launch week. Another note is the original Xbox fell of a cliff a few weeks later, and the Xbox 360 started getting big drops and modest gains back and fourth.

We don't know what Microsoft is planning to ship, but they did mention pre-orders, and the Japanese did have some interest in TitanFall.

But I am not reallly sure that means it's going to sell. I will give them 500,000 if they do some good advertising and get some games on board. If they pull a PS4, I can see them doing the last and second to last option.

your okaasan

edit: haha seriously.

i have no prediction.

#2 Edited by ghostwarrior786 (4264 posts) -

no point including 500k+ in poll because that wont ever ever happen. i think it sells around 80-90k

#3 Posted by Riverwolf007 (23612 posts) -

lol.

bad.

probably worse than 360 bad at best.

360 almost sold 500,000 launch week.

MS never has a chance in Japan, so who cares.

368k is not 'almost 500k' its a good way off. x360 launched around 7 months before ps3 and was a lot cheaper. this was also a period where japan hadnt embraced mobile/handheld gaming like it has now. not only will x1 be more expensive than ps4 by the time it releases they wont have many, if any, japan centred games either. japan bought ps4 purely for future titles that will be released and given how strong sony brand is over there and x360 weak performance there is no way x1 will even make a dent in japan. 100k at max during launch week

Japan has increasingly lost interest in consoles, and hates big bulky electronics in general. So I don't think it stands a chance of even beating the 360's opening week.

#8 Posted by blamix99 (1817 posts) -

There are a few americans in japan, so probably it will sell 1k-2k on day 1. Lol..

If you're wrong...........you're dead wrong.

#10 Edited by killatwill15 (845 posts) -

how come there isn't an option for less than 100k?

#11 Edited by Opus_Rea-333 (976 posts) -

I voted 500,000 just to drink cow tears and for the laughs.

Still doubt it, Japan console game market is currently Gas-empty and running with the smoke of gasoline like Sony.

I clicked the wrong button... lol.. No way it sells 6-7 hundred thousand... I was predicting 1st week of the PS4.

#13 Posted by adders99 (2604 posts) -

I would have thought gadgets like kinect would sell really well in Japan... I expect that to move units alone.

#14 Posted by betamaxx83 (351 posts) -

It's going to sell WELL below 150k.

#15 Edited by ReadingRainbow4 (13805 posts) -

dat bottom option.

#16 Posted by lundy86_4 (43194 posts) -

Less than the terribad PS4 sales.

#17 Edited by hippiesanta (9836 posts) -

Sooo bad that rice ball sells more in japan

#18 Edited by I_can_haz (6551 posts) -

Well below 150K. Probably 720 (lol)

#19 Posted by Sweenix (5399 posts) -

Less than the terribad PS4 sales.

PS4 sales weren't bad, they were average, and to be expected. certainly not bad

Good job.

Used female panties sell three times more than Xbox One. Fact.

#22 Posted by BigBoss255 (3538 posts) -

Why is 150,000 the lowest option when it will lucky to sell even half of that?

It's like having a poll for Ryse where the lowest review score is a 7.

I'd predict around 10,000.

Less than 150k

#26 Edited by jsmoke03 (12837 posts) -

ms should just give up japan...nothing they did last gen worked (lost odyssey was an awesome game that should have sold like hotcakes in japan)

Considering the application of those words is rather arbitrary, then the point is rather moot. That being said, it was a mild jab as a joke... Not serious.

@silversix_ "Used female panties sell three times more than Xbox One. Fact."

Hmm, maybe Microsoft could bundle that in...

#29 Posted by emgesp (2122 posts) -

Will sell less than half of what the PS4 did. 100K would actually be pretty impressive.

#30 Posted by monson21502 (8063 posts) -

probably under 10 k a week . japan hates MS

#31 Edited by BattleSpectre (5982 posts) -

1 million at launch week seems reasonable.

#32 Posted by GTSaiyanjin2 (5862 posts) -

its going to be a big hit, just like the 360

#33 Posted by j2zon2591 (2239 posts) -

Use that Kinect 2.0 for Ecchi, Hentai and Miku Animation/Dancing.

Isn't the Kinect 2.0 powerful enough to detect boners?

#34 Edited by FlamesOfGrey (7509 posts) -

Minimum 300k. Maximum 500k. Xbox One is going to flop hard. The original Xbox only sold a little over 500k in Japan lifetime.

#35 Edited by MBirdy88 (8022 posts) -

The real question is why does anyone care? Japan is becoming less relevant in the console market anyway.... game wise ofcourse. if nintendo continues to fail, there won't be a whole del of good Japanese console games anymore.

#36 Posted by V3rciS (2213 posts) -

384 units
