And in other news, trawler-men catch more fish in the ocean than a man fishing through a hole cut into the ice.

I'm glad you have been keeping tabs on my posts. And also merry that you are taking your time to keep saying the thread is unneded and complain about it being toxic while also doing personnal attacks. Go threat your anger problem.

Doing personal attacks? What? Because I brought up your post history? Come on man ... now you're stretching it :/ No need to act like this. I'm just saying this thread is in poor taste. There is quite obviously no personal attack here.

Yep, you know you did, and also calling post history is against forum rules.

That's a good software ratio for the X1 actually.

Yep something along 5-7 retail plus whatever digital it sold it's a health mark.

Whats the point of this? To make a fanwar?

In a thread I saw a link to a comment from Aaron Greenburg commemorating that Halo3 had outsold by itself 6 exclusives combined (R1+R2, UC1+UC2, GoW3 and one more I don't remember immediately) and on the comments there were someone asking about how would an exclusive of PS3 in Japan do against X360 full library. I don't remember seeing some of the people being aggressive here doing it when Xbox fans were saying PS exclusives sell poorly.

X1 have sold probably around 100k consoles in Japan... 500k is how much software they have sold so far.

I'd like to know how many of those were sold to western expats.  

I would guess most of them since the total HW is very lower than previous gen.

Oh yeah, no way it was at 500k HW

I haven't checked their HW sales in a long time.

Petty has been defined by this OP.

 

Its a no brainer.. Japan and xbox go together like cocaine and waffles. its no secret, and makes for petty threads like this, from consumer tribalism.

Do you think that people that do cocaine doesn't eat waffles?

It would be hard to eat anything numbed up and cant taste it. plus i think it would make you feel sick, if its anything good.   haha

Well never done any drugs, and the people that I thought have used cocaine, never done in front of me... so I couldn't tell you if they do eat at that moment.

Who is surprised by this? Xbox One doesn't even have a 100,000 install base in Japan. Your arbitrary metric used to conjure faux surprise is even less impressive when you consider that a single Nintendo Switch title sold over 500,000 units in the first 3 months of the console's lifespan.



What I've really taken away from this thread is that the console Market in Japan is in very bad shape. I already knew that, but I guess I needed a reminder.



It's really impressive to see the huge difference between Playstation and Xbox in Japan!
