Go Japan!! :p


DOA VB moves down to #2 in Japan sales
January 31, 2003

But there is good news, and firm confirmation Xbox's market share has jumped 4% in the Japanese market.

After only a week in the #1 spot DOA VB has moved to a very respectable #2 position in Japanese console software sales.

On a good note, the Xbox Japanese market share has jumped from an average of 3.5% up to 7.09% in just one week, further confirming an incredible jump in hardware sales for the week of Jan 20-26.

Bah, the Japanese have harbored bitter feelings towards the Americans since WWII. What is funny is after the war, when they were in ruins, it was the US who came in and helped them revitalize their economic system. Now they are so self conscious and prissy a society that they refuse to buy the system not based on whether it is good or not, but because of where it is from.... of course a lot of ps2 fanboys in america refuse to play xbox because of who it is made by, so same thing really.
