Xbox 360 sales start slow in Japan
According to the latest data trickling out of Japan, sales of the Xbox 360 have been pretty bad.
Only about 62,000 units were purchased on Saturday and Sunday, according to an independent study by Enterbrain, which publishes leading Japanese game magazine “Famitsu.” That was also less than half the 123,000 units Microsoft sold of its previous generation Xbox in the first three days of sales in February 2002.
With the big push that Microsoft was making for Xbox 360 sales in Japan, I thought they’d do better than the first time around, but half! I never expected that!
Luckily they have some time and money at their disposal before the PS3 hits…
