Kinect launches in Japan
Starting with 20th November, Kinect is available in Japan as well. While the launch didn't attract as many people as in Europe or USA, crowds still gathered to get their Kinect. Luckily, Kinect will be a hit in Japan just like it currently looks to be in the rest of the countries where it's available, making it easier for Japanese developers to build great games for it.

Otherwise, the difficulty Japanese developers will face will be huge as they will have to figure out what the gamers outside the country are interested in playing.

An interesting aspect from Kinect's launch in Japan was the way Kinect displays were set up. In some stores, Kinect displays were obvious and the product easy to find, while in other stores there were only some pamphlets on the bottom shelves, if lucky, or even no sign of Kinect at all.

Do you think Kinect will become more popular in the upcoming weeks?

If you didn't get your Kinect yet then be sure to check pricing and availability in your local web store.
