The Japanese just do not want the Xbox One

According to the most recent video game sales figures, it is clear that the Microsoft Xbox One is selling just as poorly, if not worse than previous generations of Microsoft consoles, in Japan.
For the week ended July 13th, the Sony PlayStation 4 led the way with 24,266 units sold, followed by the new Nintendo 3DS XL at 19,432 consoles sold. Somewhat surprisingly, the Sony PlayStation Vita was in third place, at 13,190 units sold.

The list goes on and ends with the Xbox One, which sold a shockingly low 242 units, an actual increase from the 149 that were sold the week before.

Also somewhat comically, the 3DS game Yo-kai Watch Busters (about ghost busting cats) handily beat out the blockbuster Batman: Arkham Knight.
