Major Japanese retailer suspends Xbox sales

Preferring to sell "credible products" to its customers

Recall or no, Microsoft's Xbox is no longer on sale at major Japanese retail chain Loax. A notice, which reads "We are suspending temporarily sales of the Xbox console itself in order to supply credible products to our customers," has been attached to display boxes in stores and is apparently a result not only of the console's poor reported sell-through of 124,000 units, but the recent debacle over scratched discs. Whether Loax will resume sales of the system is unknown at this time. Unsurprisingly, nobody from Microsoft was available to comment. Related Feature - No recall, says Microsoft
