Kotaku EastEast is your slice of Asian internet culture, bringing you the latest talking points from Japan, Korea, China and beyond. Tune in every morning from 4am to 8am.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again: Holding hardware makes pretty much anyone look like a doofus.

There really isn't a "good" or "correct" way to hold gaming hardware. No, scratch that. The correct way is to hold it in your hands as if you are playing. But that makes for crap photo ops. So at press conferences, like this recent one in Taiwan, game execs and models do their best to make hardware look attractive.

And, well, people either look stiff or strange. It's not their fault! It's just how it is.

Kinect was released in Taiwan way back in 2010. This spring, the country is getting the new family bundle and the Star Wars console.

I have a Taiwanese friend who used to live in the US (and with whom I play a lot of games over XBOX Live with), but moved back to Taiwan a few years back and his US 360 broke and he had to buy a new 360 there and he told me he had to go to like 4 different game shops before he found one that sold unmodded systems and even then the clerk looked at him like he was crazy and kept asking him: "Are you sure you want unmodded?"
