I didn't know XB1 even released in Japan lol
Nyxus  +   523d ago
Yeah, it launched a few hours ago (there was a midnight launch event).
Number-Nine  +   523d ago
ah thanks.

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-Nine  +   523d ago
lol ouch. i dont know why they bothered. the 360 failed, and im sure this will too.

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.

"Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes finally launches for Xbox One in Japan"

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.
Nyxus  +   523d 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.
Redgehammer  +   523d ago
I was going to ask the same question Death? It is an odd, and potentially misleading, choice of word usage.

They didn't have to wait long, the console as only just launched there.
Death  +   523d ago
Maybe the line for the register was long?
Nyxus  +   523d ago
Well, they did have to wait rather long compared to those who bought the same game for other systems.
Gatsu  +   523d 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.

Playing a MGS game on a Xbox is like Chief Keef doing an album with Paul McCartney.

So, how many people commenting on this news actually has an X1 or might purchase one in the future? OT, I feel MS must at least maintain a presence in Japan, completely abandoning an entire market would be a mistake.
Death  +   523d ago
I have a launch day edition.

Microsoft can't abandon any of it's markets. In order to grow the system needs to be made available globally in as many regions as possible. It sucks that Japan has had no interest to this point. Hopefully their luck changes, but with the way the PS4 has performed in it's home market I'm not holding my breath.

hopefully they're smarter than us and don't buy the demo...
