    With Infinite Undiscovery and Tales of Vesperia, the 360 is looking better and better over in Japan. A more "diverse" library.

    28,000 is an unheard of number for 360 in Japan, especially outselling PS3 threefold. But I doubt this will be consistent.

      Its always been that way Red.

      lol @ Storm and NyffTotal90 thinking the 360 is getting better and better in Japan.

      Lets make something clear, the 360 has always had short burst of increase in Japan then falls flat afterwards. This has been the problem with the 360 over there. Sure it may sell good amount at one point, then goes down for several more months and being beaten by the Wii and PS3. This isn't hardly anything surprising or something awesome.

        I didn't say it was getting better, I just said it was looking better. There's a difference. If Microsoft expands even more in their library, they are bound to win over Japan. One of the biggest reasons why the Japanese didn't accept the Xbox or the 360 was because they didn't have many games that they were interested in. That drawback is going away, slowly but surely.

          Not really the point, either way MS needs to forget about Japan cause it will not, and has yet, to really do good there.

    Goddam you Akira. D:

    That is pretty surprising, the 360 beating the Wii? I've never seen that before... Even if it is only by 1000 systems.

    The real question is if it can keep this up, which I doubt. Even so, it has a long way to go before it can even place a close third. It'll probably just spike every month a new JRPG comes out on it.

    In Japan, Hell, known as Jigoku in Japan, freezes over quite often.

    I love how people think this could be a turning point, when in reality, things'll be back to normal by week's end...
