Japanese Retailers Phasing Out Xbox 360 Hardware and Softwareby Zach Pint Hardware sales for the Xbox 360 in Japan have been dismal at best, so it comes to no surprise that some retailers are beginning to pull the hardware and software from their shelves.Geo, a Japanese retailer, is cutting back on the Xbox 360, as well as the electronics retailer, Yamada Denki. Staff at Yamada Denki have “confirmed that the company is removing hardware and software from the majority of its stores nationwide, and is selling off its remaining stock at a heavy discount,” according to Edge Magazine.Only 72,721 Xbox 360s have been sold in Japan this year, which brings the total number to 1.5 million.
