Japan are smart. They know what's what and the competition is better so its a no brainer.

The only way MS could ever succeed in Japan is if they bought Square Enix.

And that still might not work.

Gusbricker sorry but I just found your comment disclosed. Where on earth did you hear this. If your mind formulated it then wow Johnson will have to inspect your internal belongings and that also includes your dish washing soap. so get it ready because it is on like Donkey Kong

@Mario20----what you've just said ... is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever heard. At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this room is now dumber for having listened to it. I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul...

You should've topped it off with the video.

MS could do ok with Kinect in Japan if they brought out some kind of sex game for it.

Then they could use the videos recorded on their servers to create a cable comedy/reality show.

Skinect... Friday nights on Showtime!!!

I don't know why MS would even try in Japan. All of the Japanese devs are going to go flocking to Sony and that's where the Japanese consumers will go.

Even if they manage to get JRPGs they won't sell any systems. Look at FF 13 and 13 -2 for example. Both those games did well in Japan but hardly any of those sales were the 360 version.

Another good reason to own a PS4, I like diversity in my gaming choices, and I love JRPGs. 360 wasn't called the "shades of brown" console for nothing, it became very stale especially the last 3 years. And Ni No Kuni, Fire Emblem: Awakening, and other JRPGs are selling nicely, showing there is a market for these games.

Actually soon has lost a lot of its hold on japan with there consoles the ps4 has been said by many Japanese developers its really for the American market. That's not to say you won't see Japanese games on it but you will probably see more on 3ds and WiiU

The Japanese also don't care for the NFL.

ginsunuva1790d ago

Yes they do; they love the Nasty Fetish League.

But weirdly, they love Baseball.
