Xbox Finally Has Success In Japan!
-=G=- Posted on January 24, 2003


Dead Or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball had thousands of japanese gamers queing outside game stores in the rain yesterday and we have the pics and amazing sales figures to prove it!

Tecmo shipped 120,000 copies of the title to retailers in Japan and on the first day of release, an amazing 72,881 japanese gamers snapped up the game.

The title is expected to sell out over the weekend and will hopefully be the first Xbox game to top the Japanese charts since Dead Or Alive 3 was released last febuary.

Tecmo (Microsoft's greatest Japanese partner) is also creating such anticipated titles as Ninja Gaiden, Dead Or Alive Code Chronos and Dead Or Alive 4. So, if these sales figures are to be any indication, we could see success for Xbox this year thanks to Tecmo!

Not to sound bigoted or anything, but add a little perversion to something and the japanese with snatch it up faster than anything. Microsoft should have thought of this formula a long time ago.

That seems great to hear that an Xbox game is selling good. I really like seeing pics of people in Japan lining up to buy a videogame. I just wish their were pics of people dressed like DOAX characters.;)

You do not know how close to the truth you are. I lived in Japan for little under a year. I went to Tokyo and when i was walking down the street I got thirsty. so I stopped at a soda machine. Next to the soda machine was another dispensing machine. I looked at it and could not figure out what it was. Once I realized it I couldn't believe and I still cannot believe it to this day.

The machine was selling women’s soiled panties. That was 1993.

Because our country is huge and our population per square mile is much less. People probably stand in line to get into the grocery store in tokyo :D

btw that last photo with the red interior has been only for PS2 ever since A.B.City opened - i guess they changed it for just a couple days for the doax release but it's back to PS2 now. Devil May Cry 2 is popular

Why would you line up that long for a video game? It can't be that good.

That is good news, hopefully it can sell some Xboxs too over there. I agree that Microsoft should make some more games that appeal to the Japan market.

I just wished Xbox would have more games like this that would top sales charts. I really hope the Japanese Xbox games Galaxy Angel, Shigikami No Shiro(sp), Shin Megami Tensei NINE, Tenerreza, Otogi, and Brave Knight come to the U.S. I want an anime game now.:D

Oh am am willing to bet there is nudity, you will just need a code or something.

They also sell Porn in vending machines in Japan. Maybe that was China... No, it was Japan.

I could careless about Japanese gamers though, they could careless about us too.

Guys...Dudes......c'mon guys the japanese hadn't cornered the market on pervs just yet....before you guys go in the YE without sin cast the first stone.....there are just as many perv here in the states..maybe you guy should take the time to check your junk email every now and then..they sell the women’s soiled panties here too , Bucko!!! (it's okay to be naughty but make sure you have a girlfriend)

There is nothing dirty about women in bathing suits playing volleyball..There is nothing dirty about womens bodies or with nudity....in fact if i had my way..(okay, i won't go there) If you guys find anything wrong with Dead or Alive volleyball....then i am starting to wonder what team you guys are playing on!!! (i bought BMXXX...that game was great...the buds thought it was cool)

Temco makes some great games , but it's going to take more than 2 or 3 hot game titles to turn around the xbox's misforture in japan. When more games from western game companies start get those kinds of lines....then i will say that the xbox is catching on there...

Burning Ranger, dude.....i like anime too....but the simple fact of the matter is if you like anime....your going to have to stick with the playstation 2

yeah I was not joking about that. do I have proof? no. I am sure you can find other people that have been to Japan and will tell you they really have them.


I really hope this game does well in japan. only to get xbox some more publicity and push more systems off the self. that way we can have some more Japanese games and if takes half naked women to do it then bring it on!!!
