I kind of understand that and I kind of don't.

I know that the Japanse are Sony-Oriented and probably only buy the Playstation Consoles.

But those numbers?? I mean the Cube almost outselling the Xbox. Whats going on over there!? We need a campaign to go over there and promote the system and the games. The numbers shouldn't be that low!

I don't really care about Japan, but this still is good news. It means more money for the X-Box, which means more games for the X-Box, which means better X-Box sales.:)

It's about time xbox is so much better than any other system I ever played. Gamecube and Ps2 are about the same to me. Nerrad529
