IGN has an article up explaining how the makers of the Xbox 360 are hoping to really grab the Japanese market by selling a million consoles, sooner rather than later of course. The big reason behind wanting to get to the million console mark in Japan? To make it easier to convince game developers out that way that the Xbox 360 is a platform to design for.
The current generation Xbox has yet to top the 500,000 units sold mark in Japan. But Microsoft isn’t letting that dismal figure force it to think small for the Japanese market. Japanese Xbox business manager Yoshihiro Maruyama, commenting to Dengeki Xbox 360, a special one time publication released to commemorate the 12/10 launch of the Xbox 360, stated that he hopes the X360 will reach a figure double that by Summer!
