Microsoft has announced the Xbox One will only go on sale in “select” Asian markets, and only at the end of 2014 – with Japan conspicuously absent from the list.

Microsoft told the Wall Street Journal its “staged approach” to introducing their console to the Asian natives will see it released only to “select” Asian markets – Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea and India – and only in late 2014.

Japan is not mentioned at all in their plans, but Microsoft did tell Famitsu a release in Japan is “planned,” with details to be announced “later at an appropriate juncture,” suggesting either that Microsoft’s command of geography leads it to place Japan outside of Asia, or, as seems rather likely given the overall “exiting the console market after this gen” tone of the launch, it has thrown in the towel but is saving face with some PR dissimulation.

Microsoft does mention that “we have deepened our relationship with Japanese publishers” and that “this is absolutely key to our business,” but this is some way from saying it will actually be releasing the console in Japan – and may just refer to some publishing deal with Square Enix or Konami.

Although Microsoft does not mention being butchered by Sony in the Asian markets as a reason for delaying the launch there, they do say Kinect will now actually work in the tiny apartments most Asians are assumed to live in – “We listened to the feedback, not everyone in Asia has living rooms… The field of vision required for Kinect is much smaller.”

As the console will not even function without Kinect being active (it apparently continuously records everything in the room so it can wake via spoken command, a prospect so disturbing that some have likened it to the perfect spying device for the US government), their inconveniently small homes presumably posed a technical obstacle to the release.

Their disdain for the outmoded notion that a game console’s main function is playing video games also shines through – problems securing Asian TV content for the Xbox One are mentioned as another impediment to the smooth release of the console, its main function in Microsoft’s eyes apparently being the all-American pastime of watching American football whilst guzzling Doritos and gulping down Dew.

    The 360 sold ok for a notoriously difficult to penetrate market.

    But the Xbox One won't sell well because it's shit.

    it's a good guess. i think that they are constrained on development costs or component availability. so the question is why would you ship loads of hardware to a place where they will only sit and not be sold, when there could be a nintendo wii style shortage in it's largest consumer base.

    keeping them exclusive to the states will be a cleaner operation. they will quickly sell what they build and have an entire years worth of revenue and sales information at their disposal for overseas ventures.

    an american wouldn't bottle a fart, he would just place an empty bottle up there and claim it had a fart in it. the only person who might know he is lying would be the one to open it and take a sniff. but then that person would be too ashamed to call the guy out.

    Tales of Vesperia being exclusive for 360 was one of the biggest treasons that Namco has ever done. It's been ported to PS3 in Japan yet they refuse to have it out in English. Sigh. I am not getting a 360 for it now that there's Xillia going out.

    If the Kinect wasn't required, then they wouldn't force all consoles to be shipped with it. They made it clear that the Kinect is a mandatory peripheral for regular Xbox One usage and functionality, and the Kinect device is always at the very least on a low-power state, listening for a voice command to begin action.

    @Taylor, I was going to treat you as troll and ignore your comments but it seems like you might actually believe what you are typing. So here is the thing: the Xbox 360 _only_ sold well in the US; in the _rest_ of the world, the Xbox 360 didn't do that great.

    This is not just in Japan, but in many countries. For one thing, the Xbox 360 was regional locked, which meant that people had to use their local releases (although, many western games were regional free, it wasn't all of them). So for people like me who preferred to get English voice over and English text, the only option was to get the game on the PS3 or PC. This is one thing.

    Another, people in the rest of the world don't always have enough money to buy multiple consoles; so they only buy one and stick to it (which sometimes = Wii). Here is where the PS2 influence came to help the PS3; to many people the PS3 was a logical upgrade from the PS2 and so they went with it. Another thing is the RRoD that plunged the 1st iteration of the Xbox 360 didn't help much; many people feared the RRoD and so stayed with the PS3 (which by the way you can still find the fat version of it in many places).

    The Xbox 360 didn't just fail in Japan, but in many places in the world. In many places where it did sell well is due to piracy and not the console itself.

    I understand that many Americans have a limited view of the world; but you might wish to look at how the Xbox did worldwide instead of saying that only the Japanese market didn't like it.

    Although I agreed to some of your (Taylor's) statements in other threads... this time I have to be "anti-Taylor" lol

    It is true that the 360 didn't sell very good in Japan and other Asian countries. In Europe sales were a lot better, but the PS3 still sold better. Fact is that the big winner in sales was the Wii!
    Favoring one console ain't a bad thing and it doesn't matter whether it's a Japanese or American console.
    Also, nobody is ass-kissing everything Japanese. Even if someone does... what's the problem? You wrote about patriotism and others betraying "your own people"... aren't you ass-kissing everything American in that case? lol

    Taylor, you're just being a blind nationalist here. Look at the facts:

    - Apple products are American and have sold fantastically in Japan. Even when Apple was scraping by before the iPod, they had something like 24% of the computer market there.

    - Its reputation wasn't great to begin with, since the XBox was huge and bulky, couldn't stand in tower mode, and had controllers so big you'd have to shift your hands around just to reach all the buttons. Also, a lot of them would catch fire if you'd unplugged and replugged the power cord a lot. The response was to give customers a power cord with a circuit breaker in it, so it wouldn't fix the problem, but if it started welding itself internally, it'd shut off.

    - The XBox 360 had one of the highest failure rates of any piece of electronics ever made.

    Is it any wonder it didn't do well there? It's more of a freak accident that it did well in America. Without the deluge of FPS titles it would have probably sunk there too.

    It's not that people are "ass kissing every single thing japan does and worshiping them like gods while throwing your own people under the bus." It's that the products were genuinely horrible, so it's natural they failed. What you're doing is like advocating everyone drive Ford Pintos because they're American - who cares if they turn into fireballs when rear-ended?

    ...except nobody is doing that? People here talk shit about Japan all the time. There's plenty of weeaboos too, but you're legit saying that people only like the PS4 better because its from Japan. People have continually pointed out the flaws in the new Xbox which arent present in the PS4, but you act like people only hate it because its from the US. Every time you post it just makes you sound like you blindly love anything the US does, which is pretty damn hypocritical.

    MOST people go for the quality version and dont settle for a flawed one, and the Xbox one is clearly flawed. I'm not supporting the PS4 just because its from Japan, and I'm not going to stand up for you just because you're from the US.

    So answer me this, how exactly are you -not- hating on the PS4 just because its from Japan instead of the US? Your logic is retarded as its always been, stop trying to convince yourself otherwise. You're an embarassment as an american.

    "The Xbox 360 didn't just fail in Japan, but in many places in the world. In many places where it did sell well is due to piracy and not the console itself."

    Right, that's why in Europe PS3 only outsold it by 6 million units, which is nowhere near the beating PS3 got in America and 360 got in Japan.

    "I understand that many Americans have a limited view of the world; but you might wish to look at how the Xbox did worldwide instead of saying that only the Japanese market didn't like it."

    I understand you're a bigot, with an overinflated sense of superiority. But no matter how much you wish it, 360 was hardly disliked by all foreign markets.

    1. Yes you can buy used games from the store, BUT even if you buy the used game, in order to play in on the new XBOX one, you have to pay to unlock it for your particular XBOX One console, technically, if you buy a used game from Gamestop, you have to buy it again from Microsoft. Why don't you read more into the console you're defending.

    2. Even if it's $50 a year, for what? extra stability? There is more lag on the Xbox than the PS3 and Sony gives you the stability for free. Or do you just pay just to be paying? What would you do if everyone else followed their lead? You pay for your internet, but then you have to pay for access to EVERY site you go on.

    3. It's called bad business and it's immoral. Microsoft is known to monopolize, and that's what they try to do with everything, that's why the government forced them to split their company in half because they were becoming a monopoly.

    4. The PS3 has better graphics capabilities than an Xbox 360, which uses DVD as it's platform, while the PS3 uses Blu-ray, which, by itself complete outperforms DVD, then you add the consoles specs which is a fact that the PS3 is more powerful, YET when PS3 games are pitted against the same game for Xbox, the PS3 game seems less quality, and it's been discovered that Microsoft doctors released game images to make them seem better than the game on the PS3.

The PS3 has better graphics capabilities than an Xbox 360, which uses DVD as it's platform, while the PS3 uses Blu-ray, which, by itself complete outperforms DVD, then you add the consoles specs which is a fact that the PS3 is more powerful, YET when PS3 games are pitted against the same game for Xbox, the PS3 game seems less quality, and it's been discovered that Microsoft doctors released game images to make them seem better than the game on the PS3.

    Because of this Taylor really doesn't have a life. He just spends his time sitting in front of his family's computer, typing to himself. Whether you're "trolling" or not, I could give a fuck less. A real "troll" wouldn't even have to type half the shit you have already typed and would proofread his shit commentary before he posts it. I got bored reading the stupid retarded shit you posted, but it made me laugh, at least. Keep up the good work, "Bro".

    It's got nothing to do with Country, MS uses cheap cheat tactics to make money, and a lot of us won't sit back and get butt raped by them and take it, like you XBOX fanboys seem to like since you just sit back and accept it.

    The XBOX one...

    1. Makes you pay again, to unlock play of a used game. (Fact)

    2. Makes you pay to use your own internet.(Fact)

    3. Pays game publishers to delay games and DLCs of other consoles, for up to 6 months and a year. (Fact)

    4. Pays game publishers to lower the graphics of the games they release on other consoles. (Speculative)

    The Playstion 4...

    1. Doesn't.

    2. Doesn't.

    3. Does Not

    4. Doesn't.

    1. Used games are cheap and if you're just curious about 1 game, you can just buy something like that and decide for yourself if it was great or not.

    Having friends share a used game with you increases your game library compared to buying shiny new games that makes you regret after finishing it in an hour.

    2. 50$ a year is a fucking lot if you don't live in uncle sam's groin. And seeing as how they go about it business-wise, it's not just 50 bucks a year. There are better things to waste money on than on some console who's milking you deliberately.

    No matter what game, there will always be noobs. That's a fact as every gamer has his own views on other people.

    3. Indeed it's a business, however blatantly saying "fuck you" to your consumers won't get you that angelic choir song you'd wanna hear from them. It's all about trust as to how you'd prepare your service to them. There are more subtle ways to charge consumers without making them feel that they're boxed in.

    4. IF they do, we'd have the same reaction - it's only natural. You may wanna look up on what happened to sony with their anti-piracy approach for their console

    Taylor, brah. most of the people are on the Idol Complex(Sankaku Complex) because they are fairly hardcore otaku. I'm here for the same reason you are, kill time. But honestly, arguing with these people about japan is like arguing with a dog about it's bark. You will NEVER win, and the dog will just start to hate you. So my advice, brah. Read the articles, move on. I've been a member for 4 years? or so. I have like 15 comments total. This is definitely the first time I've seen so much hate directed at one person. Move on to a better site where you won't find sheep like these people. Or simply don't try to argue with them. you might as well be talking to a wall, bro.

    how about you explain how exactly preferring a console by Japan to one in america means 'blindly loving everything japan does'? You cant because you realized you were wrong and said something retarded, but dont want to admit it because you are incapable of doing that. It's beyond sad, but its common in children so its to be expected.

    TL;DR... TL;DR.

    Taylor, rule of finger: never use walls of text to troll people, no matter what your target is. Whatever intentional logical falacy you try to construct will get lost on the way.

    Keep practicing, you may eventually be a good troll... maybe. Just... maybe.

    You know, when Sony turns around and says 'Oh you can trade/lend/sell games, but there's a fee..' and when their publishers block used games because they're just as greedy as MS..

    You Sony fanboys leaping up to crap on the Xboner are going to feel pretty stupid when Sony hits you with all that.. *after* you buy it. Listen to their words, and especially what they're *not* saying.

    Comment by Taylor

    You saying 50$ a year is 'a fucking lot of money' disqualifies your entire argument and your position as an intelligent human being. I will just have to assume, as statistics suggest, poor people are simply not smart and uneducated and unable to think critically. Debating with you is pointless. Your socioeconomic level is too far beneath me for you to understand my words. If 50$ a year is too expensive for you then you are poor and too stupid to find a way to make 50$ a year. If you are too stupid to be able to afford 50$ a year, you are too stupid to understand logic. Please give up trying to speak intelligently and just resort to calling me a name and saying how dumb I am from a lack of your brain being able to process a thinking ability beyond a 12 year old like your fellow morons here and be on your way. If you're unable to come up with a subject related original quality insult then please just rely one of the popular internet memes. Its sure to gather you support from your gynecomastic lower middle class general equivalency degree peers commenting with equal anger from their parents home. :)

    As has already been stated by others and by my profile, voted down comments are my intent so that makes me successful in my goal, so you then ranting and loling about my drivel comments shows you have fallen into the same stupid person trap Ive laid out for others and you was not able to understand the obvious because you are too much of a dumbass and have failed in your goal in saying something you hoped to be insulting and funny. LOL.

    All of the hidden comments by Taylor are the most noticeable thing on this thread and days later is still gathering your attention. This is great psychology data I'm collecting. Pretty good how Im able to make stupid people jump at my whim isn't it?

    As you all are competing for the funnier anti taylor comment I don't see anyone logically disproving my points. I don't hate Japan and I like many japanese things, as I like different things from many cultures, but theres a difference between that and ass kissing every single thing japan does and worshiping them like gods while throwing your own people under the bus. Japanese people don't do that no matter how crap something they make does. It's embarrassing.

    Japanese can say HAHA Americans and their CRAP SHITTY PRODUCTS haha gtfo of our precious Japan. And you weaboos will be like FUCK YEAH! We suck as Americans! We cant do shit right. The stuff you guys do is so awesome I agree! May I lick your superior Japanese feet?

    Then when I try to defend your place of residence for the sake of japan u throw me under the bus too. sad sad.

    Im not assuming everyone is American, I'm only talking to the ones who are, but the same idea can be applied where ever you are from anyway. That should go without me having to explain. Next.

    Which console sells more than the other is not part of any of my main arguments. I don't care and neither should you since you don't rake in any of those profits. Next.

    Its fine if people prefer one console over the other. I was addressing specific people in general as a whole as I read through the comments who were obviously ass kissing Japan for everything they do. If you say so what if they ass kiss, then shouldn't you also say so what if people criticize them for this? Am I not free to make an opinion just as they are? You're criticizing me for doing this is no different than me criticizing them. Next.

    You are free to detest patriotism all you want just like I am free to support it. The FACTS show that the most prosperous countries in the world are also the ones who show the most patriotism. So if you don't want to live in a piece of shit place it may benefit people to care about their country and work towards making it better. This is no different than keeping a neat and clean house. But if you prefer to live in mud with swine that is your choice and I am also free to care about where I live. Next.

    "Everyone can do and like what they want, just leave it at that"

    You should practice what you preach while being critical of me. The end.

    1. So if someone buys a new game, everyone then who plays is used shouldn't have to pay for it? Don't you have to buy used games anyway from the store? (retarded)

    Why not one person just buy the game and pass it on to the entire country for free have xbox go out of business and no more video games for anyone.

    2. You mean that 50$ a YEAR for xbox live? Omg that so much money I'm going to die. Doesn't that benefit in many ways like keeping noobs out of servers and profit for xbox to make better products, the money goes right back into xbox. If you can't afford 50$ a year you probably cant afford any console anyway and you shouldn't be playing video games anyway, go get a job.(cheap and retarded)

    3. That's called business. Every business including playstation does similar things to win out over competition. Business is not kumbaya lets all hold hands and get along. Its cut throat winner take all. Can't take the heat get out of the kitchen. Playstation has done worse things (go look it up)

    4. Sounds like conspiracy theory to me. Would you be crying and refuse to buy playstation if you found out they did this? I doubt it. Why the hell should xbox care about other consoles anyway? Again this is called business. Poor little playstation doesnt have enough billions to make publishers a counter offer for their ps customers? Oh I guess they just don't care that much and just pocket the money instead because playstation fanboys will buy no matter what.

    Love taylor.

    Ps. I did my research as I always do and the xbox sold just as well all over the world as the ps did and even better in places besides America, so even though I wasn't even arguing any of your points and have no idea why you made them to me, you are still wrong.

    There are much more fun ways to troll. Writing 50 line paragraphs with facts and statistics and logic I wouldn't consider one of them. Your inability to come up with solid logical quality arguments doesn't make what I say trolling. Calling me a troll is just the easy way out of not being able to handle the embarrassment one faces when I have proven their points false and illogical and have publically humiliated them with common sense showing them to be the morons that they are. If trolling means winning arguments and forcing people to resort to "you're an idiot!" and "fail" and "full retard" and "kill it with fire!" because they are too stupid to counter. Then I perhaps will be Trollin 4 life.

    "GAH! Taylor proved me wrong and made me look like an idiot again..damnit, brain hurt, why do i have to be so stupid...what to do what to do...good thing im an anon...ah i know how to get him back, saying retard on the internet seems to work and gets alota votes..ok ill try that... ahem: Taylor, you just went full retard! AHAHAHA yaay that'll work. there i feel smart again."

    Dey see me trollinnn, dey hatttinn...

    Faded comments and hidden comments stand out more than open ones so your efforts are kinda counter productive hahah. but I know you can't resist showing your hate through downvoting. I mean it takes quite a few people to hide 10 different comments hahah. I don't like being ignored so it tells me that your reading and I'm getting in your head. Im honored to have gathered so much attention. I have become the most infamous and well known figure on sankaku surpassing even houselife. Taylor is a household name now :*) You should be thanking me for enriching your lives by giving you a sense of accomplishment through the positive sensation of downvoting and also giving you a sense of community on sankaku by allowing you to unite against a common enemy.
