    The 360 is the top selling console in Japan. They are sold out according to Famitsu.

    Breaking: Holy Snot! Xbox 360 Tops Home Console Sales In Japan

    According to sales data from Famitsu publisher, the Xbox 360 is the top selling home console in Japan for the sales week September 8th to September 14th. Microsoft announced last month that the console was sold out as demand had surpassed sales, and since then the console has continued to dip in sales. At its pre-TGS press event, Microsoft stated that it was reducing the console's price. On September 11th, the company released the reduced price console again in stores — meaning that the console didn't even have a full week in stock in stores. Here's the sales breakdown from Enterbrain:

    • Xbox 360: 28,681 units
    • Wii: 27,057 units
    • PLAYSTATON 3: 8,050 units

    The week before, Enterbrain data states that only 843 units were sold. This comes as a surprise as traditionally Microsoft has found it difficult to make in-roads with Japanese video game consumers.

        Oh wait, sales went UP the week that there was a price drop? Jeez, that's a big shocker.

        Let's see how those numbers hold up.

          Actually, they sold out of the inventory they brought in to replace the stock they sold out the month before.

          At full price.

          To all customers
          We truly thank you for all your patronage in the past.
          Currently, the Xbox 360 is sold out, and retailers are unable to restock their supply. This is a result of our own sales targets being exceeded by the actual customer sales. We deeply apologize for this inconvenience to our customers, retailers and business partners.
          Here at Microsoft, we are moving forward quickly with console production, and plan to ship the standard Xbox 360 model out this September. Furthermore, we will sequentially be shipping out the Elite and the Arcade models. We ask that you please patiently wait until the console is shipped.
          We truly thank you for your patronage hereafter.

            Microsoft learned that you need to bring out games to drive the sales in a territory.

            Just like Sony needs to.

              If that's the case, then I must be totally misreading the quote in the original post, 'cuz that's not what it says...

                One of us is. What I'm reading says the console sold out in August. If you sell the majority of your stock in in one week, then the balance the next, you would show a dip in sales, correct?
