Just after the count down that marked the release of the Xbox One in Japan, the Japanese version of the console was showcased in the first post-launch unboxing.

The event, that you can check below, shown the guts of the box of the local Day One edition, which includes Kinect, Titanfall and Kinect Sports Rivals, with an apparently quite sleepy (it was just past midnight, after all) Toshihiro Nagoshi musing on the phone.

The whole scene was quite hilarious, with the hosts indicating the power button turning on with great displays of surprise and jubilation, and the console assembled and powered on on stage at with the participation of the local Xbox honcho Takashi Sensui.

Of course the unboxing was executed in perfect conformity with the typically Japanese tradition/obsession of showing off new electronics while wearing white gloves.

Now Japan is aware of a cardinal truth: when you pull it out of its box, the Xbox One really works.

Hailing from sunny (not as much as people think) Italy and long standing gamer since the age of Mattel Intellivision and Sinclair ZX Spectrum. Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
