Over half of Japanese 360s unsold

Japanese xbox launchAccording to Enterbrain, the Xbox 360s are piling up in Japan. Less than 40% of the 159,000 Xbox 360s available were actually sold on the first two days of release; even the original Xbox managed to do better, with 123,000 units sold in its first three days. Despite the difference a day makes, it's clear the 360 isn't living up to Microsoft's hopes in the East at the moment.

The editor-in-chief of magazine "Famitsu Xbox 360" blamed the delay in Dead or Alive 4 for the slow start, so we may see numbers pick up once DoA hits the shelves.  For now, the Japanese version of the console is still available for import thanks to the low sales, so there's a silver lining for the rest of the world.
