Microsoft nails down Xbox distributors
Author: JT Smith
CNET News.com says that Microsoft has named distributors for its forthcoming Xbox game and multimedia console in Japan. Former Ziff-Davis owner Softbank and toy maker Bandai will form a new subsidiary to distribute the console to Japanese retailers. Now all that's left is for Microsoft to announce a shipping date. Oh, and perhaps a few game titles would help.
