Microsoft comments on poor Xbox One sales in Japan

Newsbrief: The Xbox One hasn't been selling all that well in Japan, and Microsoft isn't exactly happy about it -- although the game says it is looking at the long-term. The console has been out in Japan for a few weeks now, and has sold less than 30,000 units in total. As translated by Kotaku, Xbox Japan boss Takashi Sensui told Famitsu, "It's not as though we're satisfied with the current sales state... We are also aware that reaching out to let more people know about the Xbox One is vital." "We hope to lay out a long-term vision and to focus on publicity for our console," he added. "Taking the first step was very important, and as for how to permeate the market from here, we hope to continue to do our best."
