Japanese are very optimistic and always shoot for perfection (obviously not all, but on the whole this is how it seems). That's why we see the bar set so high for WiiU in terms of sales.

I know I have a problem if that's what makes you happy. :| Seriously, not only is the Xbox been doing notoriously bad in Japan (meaning you might as well say "well, at least they're doing better than a sick puppy". You just can't say that without sounding like a total jerk...well, that, and your standards a pretty low...), but also, competition tends to be a good thing. The 360's so practically ignored that now the people that did buy one has very little to play, developers not making returns...does their suffering really make you happy? Sure, it's not disaster, but still, you're just sounding like a jerk.

Doesn't talk about games.

Let's not be too optimistic. The Vita sold over a million by it's first international week, but we all know how successful that is now.

When it came to the Vita, we were never optimistic.

It's not 'happy' to see any major gaming company struggle. Even if you hate Microsoft, there are Xbox fans in Japan.

Empathy. Magical thing.

@ToWhomItMayConcern - Lay off. He's just using the XBOX as a gauge to show how the Wii U is doing. Even though the XBOX may not have done the best in Japan, it's still something for the Wii U to beat its lifetime sales there.

The XBOX didn't do all that well in Japan, but I'm not sure that means Microsoft as a gaming company is struggling. The XBOX has done quite well in other countries.

@CanisWolfred Well your reaction was far away from my intention. I don't mean to offend the people who did buy an Xbox in Japan. However I wouldn't actually call those people who bought it "suffering". They just spent some yen in an unexpectedly wrong way.
@Bankai Believe me, I love Microsoft, I bought an Xbox 360 myself and I enjoy it greatly. I didn't mean to laugh at their faces but I do believe that my previous comment was a tad bit mocking to any dedicated Microsoft fan.

If everyone stopped making fun of fanboys and gloating when one console does better than another like the console is the cute high school girl and they just scored a date with the girl rather than the jock, then fanboyism would cease to exist.

I took this post as the Wii U hitting a milestone, not as a post to dis the XBOX. I guess it could be compared to an athlete beating a record held by another athlete.

You guys are taking the XBOX thing too seriously. It did have crappy sales in Japan, and I been here long enough that no game company is off hands around this site. Especially not the Big N, quite ironically.

But but 3DS outsold PS3 in Japan. That means Sony fanboys are lame!

I think Monster Hunter and Pikmin could boost sales and we could see 5 million sold as predicted. So you know, just something to think about.

Here is a new petition to get Metal Gear Solid Rising: Revengence on the Wii U!!!

If this is true, wonderful news indeed. More consoles sold means more games likely to come out in a better time frame.

You do understand these numbers are not great??

Especially when most of the people interested in the console will have bought one by now
Only BIG price cuts and things called "games" will save it in the future.

And once Microsoft and Sony have revealed the future 360/ps3 then Nintendo will sell even less as people wait for them
