Xbox Japan Boss Takashi Sensui has resigned from his post in the shadow of disappointing Xbox One sales in his home country, as reported by Famitsu. He will continue to remain employed with the company at the Microsoft Redmond headquarters as General Manager for the Interactive Entertainment Business, but his term as Chief Executive comes to an end after taking the job in 2006.
Xbox fans who love Japanese games are feeling the full brunt of the country not buying into the console. After all, why would any company want to develop games for a console its main audience does not buy? Japan’s best companies have always insinuated that they make games for Japanese fans first and everyone else second. Recent times have showed that doing otherwise spells nothing but trouble.
