Due to poor demand for the Microsoft Xbox One game console in Japan, the GM of Xbox in Japan, Takashi Sensui, has stepped down. Sensui reportedly "stepped down" from the position, but has been given a new role within the company's gaming unit: He will assume the role of General Manager for the Interactive Entertainment Business in Redmond, Washington.

Not surprisingly, the Xbox One hasn't sold well in Japan - where Sony and Nintendo reign supreme - with the next-generation Xbox One only moving 38,461 units since September. There were 23,562 units sold within the first week, and Microsoft hasn't been able to build any type of momentum.

Xbox Japan continues to reshuffle its management, with Nobuyoshi Yokoi and Yoshinami Takahashi now in control of the Xbox Japan business.
