games should be made with all the languages on it so it can release everywhere at the same time and then you just pick the one you want

I wish they'd put serious effort into localization. Japanese games uasally have bad voice actors in non-japanese. Actually everyone else does a good job. Its just japan lol.

This will cause more delays for game releases so they can translated, tested and approved for use in all territories (sometimes it's not the matter of can, but cannot because of reasons beyond industry control). Tomb Raider was delayed. Guess why? Not all studios and publishers are going to go for it. They will want to have the benefit of testing their sales in one territory first before shelling out $ for localization costs (and everything involved in the process). If studios and publishers can secure localization efforts early on, then all the better. It would be nice to see true world-wide releases. This last Gen was a vast improvement on localization efforts, but I don't think we will see a huge leap anytime soon (too much red tape).
