Microsoft is Not Giving Up on Japan

Proud owner of the Xbox One
For those who scour the internet (and this site), it's no surprise that Xbox One hasn't been selling well in Japan. After launching at over 25 000 units sold, the numbers have decreased dramatically. But it's not over, according to the head of Xbox Japan.

Speaking with Famitsu magazine (and translated by Kotaku) Xbox Japan head Takashi Sensui explains, "It's not as though we're satisfied with the current sales state. We hope to continue through taking user feedback and improving [the Xbox One] and offering content that everyone can enjoy." 

Sensui-san continues, discussing how important it is to reach out to gamers and let them know about Microsoft's newest console as well as noting that the console generation has just started. "However, the current console generation has become very long. We hope to lay out a long-term vision and to focus on publicity for our console. Taking the first step was very important, and as for how to permeate the market from here, we hope to continue to do our best."
