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.

WarThunder1743d ago

Every Dev should support Arabic!

Its one most talked and beautiful languages!

kB01743d 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...

kB01743d ago


The joke is loose on some.

kB01743d ago

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.

Dude. Saudi Arabia has an insane amount of gamers.

Salooh1743d ago (Edited 1743d 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

Golden_Mud1743d ago

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

Golden_Mud1743d ago

You do know that if half of Arabian gamers stop gaming , PS3 and
Xbox 360 would be nearly 67 million for each console

I don't see why they dont just add arabic subs especially when they market this game to that region.

blackbirdi1743d ago

who cares arabic traductions are the worst and stupid ... i prefer to play in english

Campy da Camper1743d 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.

blackbirdi1743d ago
