Even though the console isn't coming out in Asia in 2014, Major Nelson confirms they will be at TGS
Looking to buy some Japanese support for their western market?
Literally "Buy". Now Sony can kill them in their own homeland. BTW, how is MS gonna try to impress the Japanese, when even their TV services won't work outside of U.S. and Europe?
And Sony would blow them with their unannounced game lineup. They still have a lot to announce since they have atleast 20 games coming from first party alone in ps4's first year and they only announced 4.... Oh so very smart.
4? You do know that a bucket load of indies are included in that, its not just triple AAA games.
"And Sony would blow them with" Sony would blow who? Did you forget a word? Is this Arrested Development?
with the vita as a trojan horse.. its close to impossible that MS could get any advantage there... not to mention all the other obvious flaws... I hope Sony announce something related to Last Guardian
@BZone - People on here don't like Arrested Development. Seriously. You can't make those jokes without getting downvotes. It's sad, but true. :/ Best show ever made.
I believe they have a studio based in Japan that will be creating software
they need rice
LO2 and the revival of Cry On for X1, plz!!!
isnt X1 supposed to not even be supported in Japan at launch? This whole not supported in every country thing is pretty much financial suicide. They can never hope to keep up with competitors with such a restricted market
not until late 2014
They set-up a studio there to make Xbox One games, Microsoft Osaka.
Microsoft can try to lure in the Japanese but you know they're not dumb enough to fall for xbone's crap.. sony's gonna sh!t on them with last guardian update.. calling it.
prepare to get slaughtered on SONY's home turf
Meanwhile, in Japan: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Why. They looking for even more ridicule?
and no one in japan will care
Crimson Dragon. Always online would actually be easier there, since the country isn't that big, a lot more people have broadband. Same goes for Europe. Not saying that's going to work for Japan, because it's not.
Actually from what I understand Japan is more wi0fi than internet. More so in country areas. Also really can't see them warming up to the size of the console when it was the original Xbox took some dings there for being so big.
Why even bother? Japan won't even look at the Xbone. As a matter of fact, the Xbone won't be out in Japan until late 2014.
If i'm not mistaken Japan isn't even on the list of places where the Xbox One will work. What's the point?
lol if the westerners are up in arms about the xbox1, what do they really think the japanese will do
i don't think Japanese gamers care enough about the xbox line to be up in arms over it.
Microsoft is at almost every TGS. This actually isn't out of the ordinary.
And they get ignored every time. What's your point?
You have to somewhat admire MS for continuously trying!
My point is my second sentence. "This actually isn't out of the ordinary." You see, news is usually something unexpected. "Today is Saturday" would not be news, if posted after Friday. Why? Because that always happens. But if holy crap that happened after a Tuesday? THAT's news! Dog bites man = not news. Man bites dog = news. :) I never said they wouldn't be ignored. (For as much as they ignore Japan, they deserve to be ignored in return.) I simply said that they usually attend TGS, so "MS attends TGS" isn't really a surprise.
i cant remember where i heard this but a journalist went to japan while while there went to a games shop to order some western games and they had them in a dingy basket marked " western trash" that gives you an idea
I'm looking forward to the Tokyo game show. If Persona 5 is gonna be shown somewhere, it'll be there. *Fingers crossed*
i hope every year then get disappointed that P5 will be shown ):
so you going to the worst fan base to be in the press conference umm right
Japan people be will probably be at the PS Booths, while the M$ booths will be empty.
Really hope that Japanese devs don't try to imitate western gaming - again - but at the same time they don't go the full-blown J-pop route they're currently going.
Knowing the gaming community in Tokyo, I expect this whole event to be a bloodbath for Microsoft...
Bloodbath as in they're victorious or they get slaughtered? Obviously the former because you said you know the gaming community in Tokyo and they're all over Sony's nuts
And they thought Xbos360 flopped in Japan, I can see the Xbone being even worse. Xbox go home.
I wonder if MS will snag any JRPGs and make them exclusive this time around. Last time they got a few but it didnt sway the Japanese.
Lol. I predict another epic fail.
People in Japan don't care about the 360 and they'll care even less about the Xbox One. There's no point in going.
Not even excited. Got hyped for E3 2013 and that was a HUGE let down from MS. The company has literally got to shit.
lmao if the xboned isnt coming out in Asia in 2014 Sony is just gonna cruise with insane sales....
Cool At least the Japanese will get a nice laugh at Microsofts new console
