Kinect still suffering slow start in Japan

GT5 takes top spot in Japan chart as Kinect fails to break top 20

Gran Turismo 5 has taken the number one slot in the Japanese chart for the week ending November 28, sending PS3 hardware sales soaring.

New entries from DS RPG Super Robot Taisen L and Mario Sports Mix for Wii have taken second and third places, while Super Mario Collection and Pokemon Black/White are also sitting in the top five.


However perhaps the biggest news is Kinect's ongoing battle to break the top 20 in the region during its second week of release.

Despite its slow start however, the motion cam managed to triple Xbox 360 hardware sales at launch - it just seems like nobody's buying any games.
