No Delays for Japan!

On Tuesday, Microsoft Japan denied reports the company will postpone introducing its Xbox game console in Japan due to a lack of support from game developers there. "We are proceeding with our scheduled introduction of fall 2001 for the Xbox, we envision no delay in that at this time," a Microsoft Japan official told CBS MarketWatch.com. Asked if it had read a Bloomberg report Monday that first mentioned a delayed launch, the official said: "Yes, and our stance here in Japan is that this is not correct. We are proceeding as scheduled." More on this article can be found here.

Daily Radar had a few words to say about the Bloomberg report and the question of whether Microsoft is in trouble or not. You can click here to see what they had to say. There's also a tasty niblet below to get you going in the right direction.

So is Microsoft in trouble? It would seem that way, with only Konami on board. But keep in mind that Square was all set to announce its support at the Fall TGS last year. Rumors have been flying since then that Square has had Xbox dev kits from the beginning, and that Final Fantasy X may appear on the Xbox. Microsoft has been careful to piecemeal out its big announcements (Japanese developers in November, EA in December, the unveiling in January, etc.), so we can expect something big this month.
