Unimpressively poor Xbox 360 sales in Japan?

They blame it on the top guy, of course.

Reminds me of Gunpei Yokoi. Gameboy creator...
*coughs*and Virtual Boy*** After creating the Virtual Boy(WITH AWESOME MARIO TENNIS!(only game I have ever played for Virtual Boy)) He decided to create his own company

In french a great joke could be made out of that, with the double entendre of the word "remercier". I just needed to say it out loud here because it kills me that I can't use it for IC.

Thing is, I'm not sure what the new guy is going to be able to do to turn the XBox360 around in the short term. Games are what ultimately sell consoles and with things like the First Person Bommer hijinks of the new Bomberman on the horizon I can't imagine that there's going to be something coming out in the near future on the 360 that Japanese gamers aren't going to be able to live without.

Apparently, MS has sold 115000 consoles in Japan in about 3 month.
Unimpressive indeed.

It's less funny if they forget to precise the first Xbox had sold 123,000 units in Japan on its first day.
