4 Color Rebellion has a transcript of a segment included with its recent Podcast. It is not Microsoft bashing nor a Nintendo fanboy rant. It is about the failure of the Japanese Xbox 360 which is one of the weakest system launches in Japanese history. It only topped perhaps by the Japanese launch of the Atari Jaguar.
