With the horrible launching of the Xbox 360 in Japan, Microsoft has switched the person that heads up the Japanese Xbox division. This article
in Reuters UK has all the details. The change takes place on April 1st as sales of the 360 right now are even worse than when the first Xbox was launched there. A new person probably won't make much of a difference for this generation but maybe on the next one Microsoft will see better success over there. Quick tip to the folks at Redmond: have games that the Japanese WANT to play when you do launch.
