    Western consoles have never really done well in Asia. They are pretty loyal to their brands. Be interesting to see if this actually works and gets some sales on the boards for Microsoft.

    Maybe this is the start of the september price cuts, which means Jasper could very well be right round the corner if not here already.

    I don't see it having a major effect. What will have a major effect will be some decent JRPG's. This can be seen when Tales of Vesperia was released, the 360 outsold PS3 by 2.5 to 1(for 1 week only tho) With Infinite Undiscovery (Square-Enix) due this week and Star Ocean(Very popular series from Square-Enix) due Feb(ish) the future looks a little brighter. Not sure if these are exclusives, if they are then it will be good for sales, but i don't think they are.

    Also, it looks like the western world may be getting an influx of Japanese Xbox 360 games. There was an MS presentation in Japan earlier today and it was mentioned.

    Loads of RPGS then I guess?
