Japan munches on some Blue Dragon photo



Remember how we showed you all those RPG-lovin' Japanese peeps lined up to buy Blue Dragon for the Xbox 360? Some prelim numbers have come in, and so far so good for the 360's chances of actually getting some Far East love. According to some extremely rough estimates, the great Asian hope sold about 70,000 copies.

According to a confusing machine translation from GameSpot China, the Xbox 360 sold either 27,000 or 70,000 units to accommodate the release of Blue Dragon. If 70,000 is the correct number, an additional 43,000 units of Blue Dragon sold (which is the bulk of the Japanese owners who previously purchased an Xbox 360).

Could the tide really be turning? The 360 really is the best next-gen choice right now. The problem is, do the Japanese really care?
