Xbox boss Phil Spencer says it will be ‘good to launch’ XB1 in September and have a place at Tokyo Game Show Head of Xbox Phil Spencer admitted that the Xbox brand has not been a top-performer in Japan, but said this isn’t keeping him from looking forward to the Xbox One’s launch in the region come September Even tho Sony is having a tough time with their home turf of Japan in selling next-gen PS4 consoles, Microsoft thinks they just might be able this time around to get a few Japanese customers into purchasing their American All-In-One Xbox console when it finally lands over there in September this year.

With still a week to go before Xbox finally gets a taste of Destiny from Bungie in a form of a ‘beta’, fans of Bungie from the Halo days are still upset that everyone owning an Sony PlayStation has already played the ‘beta’ and bragged about it and posted videos, leaving Xbox owners butt-hurt and with second-hand ‘leftovers’ and nothing to brag about next week when the beta finally starts for them.
