I wouldn't go that far yet. You'll noticed that the Xbox 360 wins out in America and "Other", but not Japan. With the prejudices in Japan towards American electronics it's rather unfair to expect the 360 to win in that region.

On the plus side, the Wii's already overtaken the 360 in Germany...

That isn't completely true. The Japanize had brand loyalty, but are not prejudice.. look at the ipod, sells like hotcakes.

But hey, I don't live in Japan, what do I care if they are buying Wiis.

The Japanese aren't iPhone fans. http://ask.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=07/07/26/1420211&from=rss

I doubt it's prejudice, most people in Japan just have a very different taste in games to us in the west...

For example - if I wanna play war games, I'll get my 360 out ;)

The iphone only brings new technology to north america and europe, my informants tell me that in Japan the feature set of the iPhone is lacking compared to domestic 3g products.
