Microsoft Can't Seem to Kinect with Japan

Haven't had a chance to try Kinect yet? I hear there's no waiting in Japan.

Microsoft's always had trouble getting the land of the rising sun to adopt the Xbox. Now it seems like the company will have just as much trouble getting the land of small living rooms to pick up a Kinect.



These pictures showed up on the Japanese internet and showcase a Kinect demo station in Tokyo. The photographer reported that the photos were taken between 1 and 2 in the afternoon.



This seems like a no-brainer. Domiciles in Japan typically don't have the kind of space Kinect requires. I can't imagine all that furniture rearranging is good for the feng shui anyways.

People might also be ashamed to dance around in public. Michael Scott says "In Japan, you must always commit suicide to avoid embarrassment."
