We've got tons available!! All you need to do is come to Japan and pick one up.  Considering the prices that they're going for on Ebay, it might not actually be such a bad deal when you throw in the cost of the plane ticket.
I was on the hunt for PSP's yesterday so I went into Ikebukero to the local BicCamera to check out some prices.  On the floor they had this little island of 360's and another tiny cart full of Xbox games and one more tiny section of Xboxes and games and controllers.  And they were all drawing as much interest as this display is.  In this particular store, there were thousands of Japanese people checking out PSP's, PS2's, Gamecubes and DS's (this is an hyperbole) and exactly no one checking out any of the 360 areas (this is not a hyperbole.)  I'm convinced that in Japan, the 360 will do no better than the Xbox did.  This is not Microsoft's fault (mostly,) Japanese people are just biased against any console systems that are not Japanese.

Please don't tease me like that Canuck!  I've been unsuccessful in my attempts today at catching any of the online retail bundles because I'm too slow with my mouse trigger finger (and running out to my car at work to fetch my credit card didn't help speed up the process either).

You may be right...but let's wait until some titles from Q (99 Nights), Mistwalker (Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, Cry On), and some other Japanese games start to hit. I mean...after all, it launched over there with what...6 titles?

Yep, they'll need more Japanese oriented games, and they've signed up quite a few Japanese developers.

Too bad the Japanese 360 is on a different standard (damn country formats!).

The 360 will do well if they can come up with a few games which have the player look up young girls skirts.  That is really lacking from the original Xbox and I think that is what hurt them in Japan.

More upskirting = sucess!

Are you talking about the Xbox's or the highschool girls in tiny skirts?

I suppose I could be considered lucky for either one biggrin

Among many other things. :p

Let's just say that if I ever get the opportunity to go to Japan, and don't have to worry overmuch about how I'm paying for it, I'm diving at the chance.
