I didn't know XB1 even released in Japan lol

Nyxus874d ago

Yeah, it launched a few hours ago (there was a midnight launch event).

Mr Pumblechook874d ago

A bit of an overstated headline as saying 'finally' implies the game has been delayed. However the Xbox One has only just been released so it wouldn't have made sense to sell the game beforehand.

Number-Nine874d ago

I've been watching the livestream and I can confirm its nothing like that but heres some gold from NeoGaf. Cutting the Forza 5 crowd into a store.

That was awesome. Now we know who the crowd in Forza is modeled after.

Exactly how long did Xbox One owners wait for Metal Gear to "finally" get it when the system launched today? Interesting word use. It implies there was a delay for Xbox One owners. I wonder why the author felt the need to downplay the launch in a country the system doesn't stand a chance anyway.

Nyxus874d ago

It wasn't meant to downplay the console at all. The term 'finally' was used because all the other versions of the game launched months ago, also in Japan.

Redgehammer874d ago

I was going to ask the same question Death? It is an odd, and potentially misleading, choice of word usage.

IIFloodyII874d ago

They didn't have to wait long, the console as only just launched there.

Death874d ago

Maybe the line for the register was long?

Nyxus874d ago

Well, they did have to wait rather long compared to those who bought the same game for other systems.

Gatsu874d ago

Yeah, I bought mine for PS4 when GZ released in March :). So they had to wait pretty many months.

"Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes finally launches along with the Xbox One in Japan"

This would be unbiased and much more accurate.
