Just some food for thought, courtesy of segmentnext, Considering X360 version of Titanfall actually made the Japanese chart, do you think this will somewhat help to increase the impact, of course, some more Japanese-centric titles would've helped and I guess without seeing MS's TGS offerings, it's impossible to tell...

Xbox One Day One Edition in Japan Will Come With Titanfall and Kinect Sports Rivals

As we already know, Xbox One is going to launch in Japan this September, and now a special edition has been announced for the launch, which is called the “Day One Edition”. This new edition will come with two popular Xbox One exclusives Titanfall and Kinect Sports Rivals.

In addition to the games, the bundle will include Xbox One, Kinect Sensor, Wireless Controller, Voice Chat Headset, HDMI cable, AC adapter, Power Cord, AA Batteries and 14 Days Trial for Xbox one Gold Membership.

The Day One edition of the console will be priced at 49,980 Yen as Japanese owners will be able to save almost 120 to 130 dollars with this purchase.

Xbox One has been doing great in thirteen markets that it is available in at this moment, with over 5 million units sold already. However, Microsoft is looking to expand the markets in the upcoming months so that more people will be able to get access to the console.

Recently, the company dropped price of Xbox One to $399 by removing Kinect from the console and this without Kinect version will also be available in Japan upon its launch in September.

Furthermore, Microsoft claims that over 48 Japanese developers are in collaboration with our company to develop Xbox One exclusive titles that will appeal more to Japanese gamers.

Over the period of last decade, Xbox has not really done well in Japan, but with Xbox One, Microsoft is going all in with new games and hoping that this time around, Japanese community will lean towards its console.

If they only ship 100 of them than they can claim they sold out on day 1!

Kinect bukkake game.

Microsoft lacks the vision to do so, it took Nintendo to be the first one to supply us with a competitive shooter built around orgams.

Poor MS they can't even give that POS away in japan.

They remember the 360 and the horrible RROD fiasco, and unlike Americans they don't feel obligated to buy MS's console because of a need to support them.

The reason Titanfall hit the sales charts in japan was because every person in japan who ever bought a 360 bought the game since there is literally nothing else to play. The game didn't generate any new sales for the system (check the sales charts for that month), people who already owned a 360 just wanted to get one last bit of usage out of it before antiquing it.

The same country that bought lots of the POS3s and the YLOD.

Meh, it'd hard to say a six month old game is going to do much for sales, but free games are free games. What better do they have to pack in?

I wonder if X1 will outsell the 360 in Japan? It's such an large console it will probably not be very appealing to the Japanese market.

This might be your age showing, but you don't use "japs" (highly offensive)

Refer to the people or country as Japanese or Japan/JPN

Some of you didn't even know who the second President of the United States was before Google and Conan

There are approximately 1.8 million xbox 360's in Japan. Titanfall has sold to less than 10% of the install base in japan.I hope you are not being sarcastic.

49,980 Yen is like 500 bucks. Not bad but it won't matter. Like the xbox and the 360 they will sell around 1.5 - 2 million consoles over there. Pretty dismal~

PS4 with FIFA14 (amazon.jp) = ¥41,120 (~$400)

Xbox One Bundle = ¥49,980 (~$490)

Can't see it winning... unless they release Rapelay 2 for it with Kinect sensor integration.

Kinect Sports Rivals will just piss people off, like it did me. That should only be bundled in the trash.
