It will be exciting to see next week's hardware sales. Makes you wonder if the XBOX One has what it takes to take the XBOX 360 down a notch or if it will be the new reigning champion for last place .

The XBOX One's Japan launch seems so underwhelming, not much people have showed up to buy one. It has a lot of games available day one but a lot of them doesn't appeal to what the Japanese want. Most of those games are also on the PS4 and the Japanese would rather buy a console that's a Japanese brand. I have a feeling the numbers won't even reach 10k for the 1st week. Weekly sales post launch will be lower than current Vita TV numbers and could even dip below 500 or come close to current XBOX 360 numbers..
