I thought news of the Xbox 360 actually outselling a Japanese console in Japan was crazy enough, but now there’s word from Microsoft Japan (viewable in full after the jump) that the sudden upsurge in sales caused by Tales of Vesperia has actually drained the region of all its dust-covered Xbawkes.

To all customers
