    Better late than never, I wonder how well XB1 manages to sell in Japan.

    • razrye

      Going by the twitter pics not very well.

        Interesting article over at kotaku for ya’:

        …seemed to be a sad console launch indeed…

        • BigBoss_88

          Yeah well…it was kind of expected I guess. As PlayStation has always kind of ruled in Japan, and now American’s are trying to invade the kingdom. I believe it will sell pretty well there if given time, but not so explosively fast as PS does.

          • Schmojima

            yes, absolutely and I’m no exception.
            I fucking love amazon and I will buy my PS4 as soon as a TPP bundle will be released – waiting for the bright yellow DHL truck is one of the sweet things I live for. xDDD

            well, it’s a good feeling so to speak.

          • BigBoss_88

            Yeah I know ;D, it’s the similar feeling I sometimes have during Christmas, when waiting to open nice shiny presents! xD

          Thanks for the article. Not doing too well. Can’t wait for phantom pain. I’m a bit of a pro at metal gear

    • Yeah, it’s going to be interesting to see wether it will do better than the Xbox 360 or worse.

    In GLORIOUS 720p too. 🙂

      With state of the art 30FPS and texturized sky-box!

  • PrinceHeir

    Damn so Harada said back then he didn’t like THE iDOLM@STER back then, but now he’s wearing it in every event!

    He did say he’s gotten used to it and now has become a fan XD

    Good luck on Xbox One in Japan, only games i’m interested are ADV-VN games from 5pb like Chaos;Child(Chaos;Head sequel) and SHUMP games by Cave.
