I read that too. Unfortunately I still think theyll be fighting an uphill battle when the X360 launches. The Playstation brand is just too strong over there.
If anyone can do it I think MS can.
There were several reasons why the first Xbox didnt make it. I think they have learned their lesson and now they should be able to do something good in japan.
Its a good design, good specs and more importantly, good software which can appeal to the japanese.
They still have Sony to think about, but since the XBox is coming first, that should help them out.
We shall see. At the end of the day, the japanese market is a lot smaller than the US or EU markets so I dont really care if it succedes in Jp or not. Ill be geting a US machine.
I'd consider myself more a "Japanese" gamer, in that I like quirky ideas and RPGs rather than racing and FPS games. If Sakaguchi or anyone else develops some interesting RPGs for the 360 I'd definitely be interested in getting one.
