Japan runs out of Xbox 360 consoles

Japan is completely sold out of Xbox 360 consoles. The unexpected shortage is attributed to the recently released game Tales of Vesperia, which caused Xbox 360 sales to spike in the country.

Microsoft issued an apology to potential customers on their Japanese site stating that they “deeply apologize for this inconvenience to our customers” and hopes to have the consoles back in stock soon.

I’m amazed that Japan of all countries would run out of the consoles. What do you think?
