I'm not really suprised that the Xbox 360 ain't a big hit in Japan. When you have stories like, "We shot a video of four Japanese people lined up to play Mario Kart on DS... and no one touching the 360.
" and "At the Microsoft official party during the night at the Xbox Lounge, a guy even fell asleep in the corner of the room.
" then you know the 360's just not cutting it. So, if you really want a 360, head over to Japan. You'll be able to walk right up to the stores and get one. Lik-Sang has a few links and some pictures
of the Japan launch. Video of the events can be found here
