Fearless leader Billy B. checks in from Japan. Check out the full report on the state of GameCube ads in Japan.
Billy contacted me from a pay phone in Japan tonight, with some news that would be considered grim. From what he has seen, the GameCube is getting hardly any publicity in Japan. Except for Super Monkey Ball, which you apparently can't get away from. Billy and co had to literally search for a GameCube brochure. Also, the Wave Race and Luigi's Mansion commercials are not on TV often. It looks like stores will have point of purchase stuff up this week. Also, according to Billy, "Wario is the bizomb." Look for an update coming from Billy later when he finds time to get into another pay phone.
