The Xbox 360 has had a rough time in Japan from day one, and apparently even a brand new redesign won't do anything to change that.
In fact, Xbox 360 sales in Japan have been falling since the release of the new console last month. The most recent sales numbers show that Microsoft's console sold 7,303 units in the last week.
That's down more than 50% from just a couple weeks ago. Although the new, sleek version of the 360 with built-in Wi-Fi and a larger hard drive did sell well in its first couple weeks on Japanese store shelves, that spike is quickly tapering off.
At the same time, Wii, DS, and PS3 sales are on an incline overseas.
It puts Microsoft in an unusual position, as it continues to do very well in the US, and to a lesser extent in Europe, but in Japan it can not do anything to make a dent. They just really don't trust anything that's American-made over there.
