Yeah, everyone including Microsoft knew they were going to have a hard time in Japan. All we can do it hope they make the right deals and advertise their asses off in da Land Of Da Rising Sun!:cool:

You have to be carefull with Eurogamer.net ... not only do they hate Microsoft, but in general, they dislike anything American. Period. Now, this doesn't mean that their information is wrong, far from it. But count on them to sensationalize haw badly Microsoft is doing, and secondly, they will consistantly put a negative spin on everything.

For example, until recently they didn't even concede that the Xbox was doing well in the US. You can count on Microsoft to pony up the cash for continuing advertising, and at the same time making a quality launch for their online plans. The sky is not falling as Eurogamer would like.
