Destiny will NOT support Arabic

IGN ME , asked Destiny about the Arabic language on Destiny , (Destiny, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

95-97% games don't support Arabic, even though I prefer English in video games would be nice for companies to support the language of my country.

Why are people disagreeing with you. I really don't understand the hatred of some people in this site.

Every Dev should support Arabic!

Its one most talked and beautiful languages!
kB0  +   777d ago
That simply not true, the most beautiful language and most talked is Mathematics.

It's universal, it's logical and you dont need to speak an ounce of anything in order to speak it:)

@ kB0 *facepalm*

If you learn how to read. i said: "its one of the most"

Not the most...

The joke is loose on some.

Also maybe you leave the personal attacks for another site? :)

It's more of a technical issue than a choice really. See most of the languages supported in computing have UTF-8 compliant counterparts. Arabic does not have such counterpart, so supporting it from a programming standpoint is very difficult, because most programming languages were developed in countries where the primary language is English. In this case, Arabic"-like" language support wouldn't be just a port, but rather its own development build complete with different coding methodologies. Basically, multiply the development cost by 2... minimally. Language independent code would be nice though; whoever comes up with it will be a billionaire.

Oh well...not a lot of gamers in Arabia...
Erudito87  +   777d ago

Middle East !

Dude. Saudi Arabia has an insane amount of gamers.
Salooh  +   777d ago
We are gamers since the sega / nintendo times. We are simply not recognised , maybe because we don't develop games or other reasons. But middle east sales goes to europe and us . There are at least 1 million gamer here in middle east. I don't blame you for not knowing this ..

On topic : Who expected arabic in this game or any other game O.o

DvlzGame expected it , also here in Saudi Arabia alone , there is 9 million gamers , in Qatar there is 3 Million , in UAE there is 4 million , in Bahrain there is 300K gamers , in Egypt there is 2 million and finally all the other places equal 13 million gamers , we will be given a result of over 31 million gamers separated to PC , Xbox 360 and PS3 so we should be recognized

The guy with the highest trophy count lives in the Middle East.
IHassounah  +   777d ago
You do know that if half of Arabian gamers stop gaming , PS3 and
Xbox 360 would be nearly 67 million for each console
Erudito87  +   777d ago
I don't see why they dont just add arabic subs especially when they market this game to that region.
blackbirdi  +   777d ago
who cares arabic traductions are the worst and stupid ... i prefer to play in english
Campy da Camper  +   776d ago
You're an ignorant person. Some of the nicest people I have met online were from the middle east. I want everyone, everywhere to be able to get the best experience possible. I'm from the states and my friends list includes gamers from austraila, england, Philippines, Germany and middle east.
blackbirdi  +   776d ago
i m arabic so i know what i m talking about the its always the arabic traduction is joke and stupid so don 't play the hero here
sealava  +   777d ago
not many attractions in middle-east ,,so you'll find really crazy good gamers over there

What about other languages?? Stop crying or cry for every country without language support.

The videogame industry likes to pick up certain causes for whatever reason...I guess putting Arabic in games is the latest. *shrug*
DeadlyFire  +   777d ago
I still don't understand why we don't have a universal text conversion for the internet for all languages. Type something and it registers on your screen in your language as best translated. It would make sense for video games in particular to have this function.
JsonHenry  +   777d ago
I am assuming that there is not a big enough market there for them to bother with it or else they would. All of my Saudi friends speak very good English but I am sure they would love to play it in their native language.
kB0  +   777d ago
God damn Japanese games don't support english! WTF IS UP WITH THAT? :)

Well things are starting to change albeit a little slow but still. For instance this years version of Pro Evolution Soccer has Arabic commentary and the AFC Champions League. More developers are recognize the market that exists in the Arab speaking world.
SITH  +   777d ago
Sucks to be them. But I bet more of them know how to speak English anyway. Especially given English is the universal language for Aviation for example, and go anywhere in the world, the upper class citizens speak fluent English. Americans tend to be unilingual. I speak three languages.

So people are attacking every arab but don't know that the best gamer in the
Call of Duty Black Ops 2 on the PS3 is actually an arab gamer
