The Japanese launch of Microsofts Xbox One fell flat on Thursday, with journalists covering the debut far outnumbering buyers. Japan finally got the console more than nine months after it hit shelves in North America, Europe and Australasia and half a year after domestic heavyweight Sony unleashed its PlayStation 4 to grand acclaim. I was surprised that I was the first one to get this even though I didnt wait in a queue, said Kazuyuki Wakai, surrounded by half a dozen journalists from Japanese and international media. Wakai, 30, said he had opted for the Xbox because of its graphics and because of certain titles that are only available on the console, including the Halo series.
