since the release of the first Xbox from Microsoft it's been widely accepted that Japan is a country that loves it's own electronics whilst in general shuns most others,apart from Apple I believe,but then no one shuns them lol
however try turning the tables and people go crazy,is it so hard to believe that a great deal of americans love the 360 because it is american made?
Not all of them no,but yes I believe there is a number of Americans who have that mindset.In most american made movies or tv series where there's a family,a house in the suburbs and the sort of perfect lifestyle that can only be witnessed in tv or film,there's an Xbox I find.And it's not just 360's,back when the PS2 was giving the original Xbox a thoroughly good hiding in terms of sales,the Xbox was still the console you would see.
Now this isn't a blast at the USA,most members of this site are longtime gamers that look past where a console was made,but the more casual US citizen,who only picks up a console now and then,like a bachelor or a surburban family,they probably do.If I had to put a number on the amount of americans who take pride in having a truly american console,I'd say it's between 1-5 million of the 20 million or so sold in the USA.
feel free to disagree.
