Fam, this still feels like a MASSIVE reach."Maru" means Round or circle = good
"battsu" means X or wrong, "bad"
you routinely will use each of these in daily life in japan, and that's why if you've ever imported a Japanese playstation console, the Circle button was always Yes, and the X was always 'No', or 'Back'.
the Nintendo controller follows the same format as the Japanese PlayStation controller.
"Battsu'or X can also mean punishment, suffering, pain.
Here's the popular comedy show Gaki No Tsukai playing the 'Battsu' X game. Battsu or X meaning, they get kicked in the balls or ass as a punishment.
this is what Xbox is in Japan.
Sounds like an expert on ancient Japanese culture.
-The X signage is a huge insult to Japan
-The Xbox green color is offensive in the realm of traditional Japanese aesthetics
-The Xbox has no exclusive games
-The Xbox hardware has a legacy of big, black, huge brick-like consoles that clash with the Japanese living room.

Oh lighten up, dude. It's generally tense all round with ABK looming and potential/probable implications for future (not just by MS).I'm seeing dumb threads pop up we should report this stuff. We want quality threads and conversations not this kind of stuff.
I'm all for if there is legit research/info on why Japan doesn't adopt xbox, but making a youtube channel just to drop this video to fuel more console war crap is just....super cringe.
