Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Microsoft made outstanding progress in North/Latin America, Europe, South Africa, India etc... Can it Conquer Japan Next Gen ?

Xbox Progress is something amazing, Europe, SA and especially North America and Latin America Xbox sell like HotCakes but this amazing progress are awesome but what about Japan ??

Here are a Few things MS Can do to Sell better on the Japanese market:

- Have a lot of colour bundles

- Final Fantasy or Monster Hunter Exclusive. 

- Build some Japanese Studios or just buy SE or Capcom

- Lower Price than Competition

- More Japanese IPs

Although progress will still be made in America, Europe, Asia and other Japan still remains a Wild Card.

They made progress, true, but I wouldn't call it outstanding. Except the US and UK both Nintendo and Sony have a far better position. They have absolutely NO chance in JP, seeing that even the Vita is struggling there.

But they don't need Japan to do well, so it doesn't matters anyway.

They have buckets of cash so they should but Sega, Capcom, Konami and Square-Enix. If that fails then Japan really is a lost cause, but at least they would have the best first party lineup ever.

M$ should give up on Japan, they'll do just fine.

Don't Click teh Grunt

I don't want Microsoft to get involved in my Japanese experience in any way.

a 200% increase in Europe isnt outstanding?  far better?

OK.

OT

No chance in japan, there are other things at play there.  But Japan is less important this gen and will be even more so next gen.  Doesnt mater, They have competed amazingly well considering they only sell in two of the 3 main markets.  I doubt any console ahas ever achieved that.

I say no chance for two reasons.

1. Nintendo will be too far ahead of them.

2. I believe (though I'm not certain) japan just doesn't like microsoft.

They have had exclusive monster hunter. They tried tales. They shared final fantasy. Nothing works for them there. Its like nintendo trying to take the call of duty crowd.

Small edit: if anything they should convince europe 360 2 is better then ps4.



One more thing to complete my year = senran kagura localization =D

Also, Japan will be dominated by Nintendo next gen, I think that is clear.
