Sales of XBOX hit an all-time high in Japan this week, as the console burst through the 100 installed users barrier. “Breaking through the 100 barrier shows Xbox is beating the Sega Dreamcast to become the clear eleventh choice console in the region” said Microsoft of Japan CEO Kazuhiro Takana.

The lucky buyer of the 100th Japanese Xbox Mr Tetsuya Igaka proudly recieves his Xbox from Microsoft CEO Bill Gates.

The 101st Xbox is sold later the very same day to Mr K Okasan, topping a record-breaking sales week for the format holder in the Asian territory.
