I can’t believe it, Microsoft’s Xbox 360 is selling like mad in Japan. The special edition bundle of Blue Dragon was available for preorder yesterday, in which 100,000 units sold out almost immediately. Another 90,000 standard bundles were soon to follow the shortage.
Blue Dragon is an Xbox 360 title developed by the makers of the successful Chrono Cross. The special edition bundle included a Blue Dragon faceplate, five miniature figures and obviously, Blue Dragon. Prior to this event, Microsoft has had some serious trouble getting into the Japanese market, but it looks like we are slowly seeing all that change. Welcome to Microsoft gaming Japan!
EDIT: It’s 10,000 units sold out, not 100,000. Thanks for the heads up!
