The Xbox 360 went on sale in Japan in December 2005. The console was met by a largely indifferent Japanese game buying public.
But, bit-by-bit and RPG-by-RPG, the console has started doing decent enough. According to online reports, the consoles current sales total in Japan is hovering dangerously close to the one million mark.
During last week's sales week, Microsoft moved eight thousand Xbox 360 consoles in Japan. Another week like that could put them over the top.
