Microsoft Japan “Committed” to Release Xbox One in Sony and Nintendo’s Turf in 2014

Microsoft Japan just held its Xbox 360 end of the year informal party in Tokyo, and Xbox Division General Manager Takashi Sensui was in attendance. During a brief speech, as reported via tweet by several that were in attendance like corpse_cr he said that the company is “committed” to release the Xbox One in the country in 2014, which is a relief considering that the web has been quite rife with rumors about delays of the console in markets much nearer to Microsoft’s core target than Japan.

Below you can see a few pictures of the party and the raffle held during the celebrations (tweeted by corpse_cr himself), including the cake for the fifth anniversary of the brand in the country. And yes, they had maids. It’s Japan, after all.

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.
