        Apparently since he thinks the New 3DS just launched in Japan when it’s actually been out over there for months now. lol

  1. I know the Xbox One doesn’t sell well in Japan naturally but god damn this is terrible… Holy fuck its the lowest out of all the consoles… I wonder if this is the lowest it’s ever been

  2. Nintendo Elite Commander Quadraxis

    Excellent, we have completely destroyed the Xbox 360 militia that plagued our Homeworld for years and now the militia forces of this new Xbox are soon done…

  3. Wow, bad sales. The Ps4 has decent sales for this time of the year. It’s because they have games coming up. Bloodbourne and The Order just to name a couple. Nintendo has Kirby…..*sighhh

    I like Nintendo, they are my favorite developers. But I thought we were finished with these game droughts… Hell this time last year at least we has Tropical Freeze!! This year is worse.. at least the early part of the year… It obviously gets WAY better…

  4. I can’t wait for Devil Survivor 2 to come to the west. I’m not surprised that it’s in the number one spot.

  5. I LOVE seeing the Xbox One doing crappy in Japan. If only it would fail that same way here. Since the first Xbox, I saw absolutely no appeal in it, and no games I care about.

      The only thing the first Xbox had that made me wish I had one was the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. (Thankfully, I don’t regret missing out on them. Especially now that everything from the Expanded Universe is no longer considered canon with Disney now owning the franchise.)
