I'm actually starting to get a little sick of people trying to decry the Xbox as a failure, especially in Japan, so quickly. The thing has been out here for three months, and in Japan for TWO WEEKS-give it a rest! We don't need to have sales stats thrown at us daily, and not every announcement from the competition is Microsoft's death sentence. Is it that people are afraid of the box? Is it that they're afraid to like something from Microsoft? Is it that they want to see Microsoft fail? I just don't get it, but there's an inordinate amount of hostility towards the big black box, and I just don't get it.
