The Xbox 360 and Japanese Nationalism

| | | | | | | | | | |

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.

These articles are, of course, making the rounds of gaming sites. The article's author, Vinnk, read on these sites, is disgusted by comments. People are saying that the Xbox is not selling because the Japanese people are Xenophobic and will never buy foreign electronics. He have even read a few comments that say and he quote "Those Japs would never buy an American game system because they are still bitter about Hiroshima". Vinnk was upset because he considers "Japs" his friends of mine and resents the slur. This isn't even the worst comment he have heard on this issue, but the others are too vulgar or racist to mention.
