Yoshinori Ono Remains Mum On Deep Down For XBox One

First unveiled for the PS4 during the console's formal announcement, Capcom is still quiet on whether or not its working title "Deep Down" will appear on Microsoft's Xbox One.

dedicatedtogamers1076d ago

I know it's just a rumor of a rumor on twitter, but I want people to keep something in mind: Xbox One is even more NA-centric than the 360, and the 360 sold like crap in Japan. In addition, Japanese companies may (or may not) want to jump on the used-game fee bandwagon for one reason or another.

It is entirely possible that the Xbox One will be mostly devoid of Japanese games this next gen.

Just a thought.

NA is the largest market in the world now, not Japan. They will go where they can make money.

SexyGamerDude1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

Just selling in America is not enough.

They don't care about the NFL anywhere but the US. I doubt this will sell anywhere else.

LOGICWINS1076d ago

^You work for MS? How do you know what's "enough" for them?

NegativeCreepWA1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

I never said it was, but the largest market will have the biggest affect of where devs go and what audience they will cater.

SexyGamerDude1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

LOGICWINS, I know it's not enough for them because MS has stated that they want to and will try to sell this thing in Japan. They wouldn't do that if they thought all they need was the American audience to make money.

NegativeCreepWA, America may be the biggest market but if Sony sells more in other countries and are above MS in worldwide sales, the devs will go to Sony. It's about who reaches more people, not who reaches more Americans.

"It's about who reaches more people, not who reaches more Americans."

...True

NegativeCreepWA1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

Do you really think it'll fail in Europe? Europeans will be the ones able to get the most out of the cloud services, considering they have the best access to high speed internet.

The world may not care about the NFL, but Europe sure does care about football.

Blackcanary1076d ago

@ NegativeCreepWA i live in the UK and we have a Sky Box that we pay monthly for to watch are tv shows and sports i.e football on. Not a lot of people are gonna buy a XBone to watch TV on and pay another monthly fee when we already have a SKY Box for that.

But this is Capcom you are talking about. They are one of the most greedy companies in gaming history. They love charging you for content that you already paid for (Look at their DLC practices). They aren't going to give up a chance to nickel and dime you on the One.

MaideninBlack1076d ago

Not arguing with you about the Xbox's appeal ( or lack of it ) in Japan but it's not really a rumor if the producer tweeted it.

adorie1076d ago

Money talks, unfortunately. MS has a lot of it. When I saw Deep Down, I already knew it was going to appear on Xbone. No question. This is Capcom. Not the salvation army. Lol.

OrangePowerz1076d ago

Releasing Xbone in Japan looks like a big waste of money. The previous consoles didn't do well qnd with a big focus on TV and Kinect required I can't see it sell in Japan. Many multiplatform Japanese games didn't even get released in Japan.

PLZ D0NT HOLD BACK PS4!!!!

vega2751076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

do japan even sell used games as they do in US and EU?

Ontopic: MS needs to prove to gamers and developers that the xbox one is about games and push that hard come E3. or watch their brand and fans disappear in one gen.

i know I'm playing the wait and see before i write them off. but as of right now it's not looking good.

@below

thanks for the info. i wasn't aware they had a used game market. but both companies need to be forthcoming with this matter and stop mixing words.

dedicatedtogamers1076d ago

"do japan even sell used games as they do in US and EU?"

As far as I know, yes. In fact (afaik) the second-hand market in Japan is even bigger there than it is here.

grimmweisse1076d ago

Japan does, GEO probably being the biggest used game retailer as far as I know.

Jek_Porkins1076d ago

Even so, Microsoft put out a lot of money to get Japanese games last gen and they've already come out and said they will try the market again this gen.

Not saying that means anything for this game, but they'll definitely keep trying, and part of that is getting Japanese made games and paying for them ect..

dedicatedtogamers1076d ago

@Jek_Porkins

Their behavior with Japanese devs last gen is actually the biggest proof that they won't care about the Japanese audience this time around. They tried to buy up a ton of Japanese-centric exlusives, it didn't work, they got FF13 to go multiplat, still didn't work, and then MS simply gave up.

You cannot tell me with a straight face that Microsoft's initial efforts to secure Japanese exclusives continued just as strong throughout the 360's life.

MikeMyers1076d ago

"Their behavior with Japanese devs last gen is actually the biggest proof that they won't care about the Japanese audience this time around."

That's hilarious. They went from basically no Japanese support on the original Xbox to getting key franchises away from Sony. Such as Virtua Fighter, Tekken, and Final Fantasy. As well as getting their own exclusives.

Dark Souls 2 is also coming to the Xbox 360. Is that giving up? Man, people sure like to fear-monger on the web don't they?

MikeMyers1076d ago

Of course it's just a thought dedeicatedtogamers, you will do anything to make the Xbox One in the lowest light possible. They have already stated they have some news regarding other territories outside of the U.S.

It's the typical demeanor on the web, fear-mongering.

I think some Japanese companies that supported MS early last gen might not this or at least take a wait and see approach. Namco gave sony 2 PS3 exclusives this year, SE is giving sony FFHD and KHHD. I think Sony is gonna run away with this thing outside of the US if Eastern Devs dont support the ONE.

Sharingan_no_Kakashi1076d ago

I agree. Xbone might sell a lot of units but it won't be to core gamers so devs might be wary of supporting the console at first.

It's cool how you went all Kyuubi mode out of nowhere btw lol

Jek_Porkins1076d ago

You don't think core gamer's are going to buy an Xbox One? I'm pretty core centric and I'm buying one. I also play games competitively and the Xbox One having dedicated servers for all of their online games screams core to me.

grimmweisse1076d ago

Dedicated servers to play kinect games...yeah...no!

a_bro1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

this is capcom guys, of course its coming. i'll be surprised if it didnt.

Supermax1076d ago

To be honest ms could care less about anything.the only people they want to make happy is the 40 million Xbox live gold members they have,wich they make a billion dollars a year on.

theWB271076d ago

Crazy how business works huh? You go with what makes money. It's so simple it's crazy...Sony did the...aahh fck it nevermind.

GamingWorldPeace1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

They will release a Champion Hyper Edition on XB1 next year, no worriez gamerz.
