Multiplatform Games Like Injustice: Gods Among Us Are Skipping Xbox 360 In Japan

Injustice: Gods Among Us is coming to Japan, but it will take two months for Solomon Grundy to learn Japanese. The DC comics fighting game will be available on June 9, but Warner Bros. is skipping Xbox 360. (Injustice: Gods Among Us, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PS3, Silent Hill: Downpour, Xbox 360)

Skipping Xbox 360 in japan is a trend..

Save them money and time so I really can't blame them.

Square Enix should have done the same thing for the 360 version of FF13 in Japan imho.

Personally I think a lot more companies should start doing this. No point of shipping a game that will barely sell.

Agree, the reason why wiiu lost rayman exclusivities right. Its a business point, than we are talking about Japan here, we can figure out what they like. They like Nintendo, sony and sushi, Anything else prohibited.

Yeah, if you don't think you'll make the money to justify the costs of localizing (voice acting, licensing, taxes, etc) then why bother?

And just like that, Injustice's Japanese sales drop by 7 units.

Good for them! they don't want faulty devices and deal with warranty crap. All my friends had faulty 360's. Now they play PS3 or PC.

Ps3 back in 07-08-09 had around 6-10% faulty devices. Xbox 360 on the other hand had 23- up to 50% RROD...

Xbox failure rate was HUGE compared to other devices.

you are partially right, the nintendo has the most reliable console ever made, they are build to last, in the other hand you have the worst consoles ever made in the history of gaming sony product.

well its only makes sense now. I wonder if Microsoft will try a different approach with 720 for Japan.
ps3_pwns  +   915d ago
they smart and thats why japan will make real life gundams one day. Americans are dumb and just follow people around like justin bieber which is basically what a x360 is. Justin bieber the console.

Wonder how Xbox's lack of popularity outside of the US will effect the next console. Should be interesting.

Im American and still believe alot of Xbox fanboys are misguided Pro-American buyers. Not that Sony isnt, but M$'s greed is more so. I picture Bill Gates with devil horns. Its funny how America is driving Xbox sales. Multiple console purchases add up I guess.

... yea, Bill Gates is the definition of evil.

After all, he is in charge of Microsoft and is a greedy miser that hoards all his money and gives none of it to charity.
