Xbox One – Head of Xbox Japan resigns over disastrous sales figures

[Source] In the wake of the Xbox One launch in Japan, head of Xbox Japan Takashi Sensui (middle, with microphone) has resigned from his post, Sensui, who took over as head in 2006, will be transferred to the company’s U.S. headquarters where he will work as the general manager for Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft. Real lucky corporate guy if you ask me.

The new Xbox system was poorly received in Japan following its release in September. The console, which has now shifted 38,461 units since its arrival in the country, has performed far worse than its predecessors Xbox 360 and the original Xbox. The majority of these units sold — 23,562 units to be exact — were sold during the first four days that followed the console’s launch.
