Japan not embracing Kinect?
It's no mystery that the Xbox 360 isn't Japan's ideal console. Big name first person shooters like Halo are not hyped up in Japan to nearly the same extent as they are in America. Apparently, it seems that Kinect may too suffer the same fate, as gamers line up to play Gran Turismo 5 and neglect Kinect entirely. While this doesn't necessarily mean Kinect will have a poor launch in Japan, it's not a good foreshadowing of things to come either. Although, the Japanese base is a fairly small one when compared to both the European and American markets, so Japanese producers still have good reason to make Kinect games even if the hardware isn't embraced by the locals.
