They're fighting a losing battle, but I can't blame them for trying.

I have to give props to MS for their effort in JPN considering how little they have gained despite trying for over 10 years, 2 generations running. Can't say I'm a fan but their effort is noteworthy.

They wanna be successful in japan? That's easy make online free down there buy more jrpgs exclusives and make hentai games for kinect, they got money.

So why wasn't Japan a "soulful place" the last several years you didn't attend with the 360?

i love it when american xbox fanboys talk smack about games from japan, then they go buy them when xbox makes them.

Why do you have to say American? Not everyone on here is American, you jackass.
GrandpaSnake  +   458d ago
dude.... i just checked all your post, you have exclusively been stealth trolling anyone who says anything bad about the xbox. I am american and support the xbox but i know a lot... A LOT white american friends who clown on jpn games. this happens with almost all the pure xbox fanboys, especially when it is a ps3 exclusive jrpg.
you very well damn know the game MS will make for jpn will be jrpg honestly i wouldnt be shocked if it was another lost odyssey.

That would be stupid. Making it xbox exclusive would be smart. Since you brought up Shenmue 3, why is there no kickstarter for this game yet? Seems like a pretty good way to see how much Shenmue fans want this game. I'd throw a few hundred down to finish that story I started two consoles ago.

good to se ms not ignoring their fans in japan.i do hope they get great and awesome exclusives..now that the console is region free we could always import....all the best to the xbox team.

This is what MS lacking at the moment. If they can get some exclusive game release for Japan and US then they might stand a chance in that region.

Whilst MS started with numerous Japanese Exclusives early this generation. Ninja Blade, Lost Odyssey, Last Remnant, Beautiful Katamari, Blue Dragon, Infinite Undiscovery, DOA 4, Ninety-nine Nights series, Magna Carta 2 and Ridge Racer 6. Japan don't bite and still MS try to succeed, Cannot fault them for trying.
