Now that's surprising. I didn't realize Battlefield was THAT popular over there?

They picked the fps that will cater to them more.

COD doesnt appeal them as a nexct gen title with its 6v6 compared to 64 players at once with larger maps, vehicles & Asians.

I know the asians in game are chinese but I would assume that could play a familiarity factor for some.

Japanese players prefer Battlefield of Call of Duty because it's more team oriented and group oriented efforts are a part of the modern Japanese lifestyle. If you don't believe just ask anyone living in Japan.

that '' Akiba’s Trip 2 Vita/PS3 '' (ノ°ο°)ノ
would been nice if they localize it...

From siliconera interview, they said they will think about it if there's huge audience / demand for it. So, it's time to spam PSblog, xseed, Aksyss, or NISA if we want this game in english :D
