Slow start for Xbox 360 in Japan

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 1:27 pm

Microsoft’s next generation Xbox 360 has got off to a slow start in Japan.

According to a study by leading Japanese game magazine Famitsu, less than half of the estimated 159,000 360 consoles in stores sold in the first weekend of sales.

The poor performance of the console has been blamed on postponement of the Dead or Alive 4 game.

Japan’s games market is traditionally dominated by Sony and Nintendo, which are releasing new consoles next year.
