The "excitement in the air seems palpable" and they show a guy on his phone in the back-round and an empty lot?

Looks like the turnout was better than expected. I think I see a reflection of someone waiting to purchase.

Or that's just the Microsoft camera guy..

Don't mean that in bad taste

I think Stillbirth is a fair term to use.

Given the luke warm reception of the Pisspoor4 in Japan, I don't think the Stillborn 1 will do any better.

I hope they stocked enough day one launch editions. Lord knows they sold out mad fast here in the states.

They can always use the day one editions from around the world if they run out of stock.

Honestly what games does the X1 even have to attract Japanese gamers?

Not to mention that handhelds pretty much dominate that market atm

Well Japan has become irrelevant to Consoles for a long time now that the Phones and Handhelds rule there and don't expect to see none of the big 3 to reach 10 million sales or even come close to that figure. As for games, none so far but I did heard that SE is trying to bring FF XIV to Xbox One so I guess that might help.

#35 Posted by GTSaiyanjin2 (6011 posts) -

I doubt anyone will buy the console in Japan. It will be a massive flop just like the xbox, and 360 before it.

I doubt it ever will. Japanese like their Japanese video game companies.

@ghostwarrior786: The fact that there's no Phil Spencer Troll account is disappointing. This is pure gold.

yeah who ever runs that account is hilarious. phil might get this troll account one day but sony is just more popular in gaming forums
