    ha ha look at total xbox sales!!! its amazing how very little we hear from Microsoft about how shit they are in the far east, yet they never shut up about how good they are in the west. This is what I mean about political propaganda, we only hear what they want us to hear!! So instead of people asking why sony are third, why dont we ask MS why they are so shit in Japan, for what has always been renown as the technology hub of the world. Sony have shifted more PS2’s than MS have xbox 360’s!!!
