who were arguing that 360 will keep its momentum until infinite discovery!!

any JRPG game released in japan exclusively will only impact the 360 sales for 1-2 weeks time period!!

if MS need to win japan at least they should have made a reliable console!!

if this game was on ps3 it would have 10 times the impact 360 had!

Mad Aizen3768d ago

as the *world's most favored console.

Mr Bot3768d ago

agree with u and specially the other comment in the open zone!!
bubbles for u, hope for u to regain some!

just one question, why do we(look at my name + 's') r still supporting MS?? i guess we love to pay to play online and to have every fall holiday just one AAA game to play(gears of war 1.4)!!

theKiller3768d ago (Edited 3768d ago )

no matter wat MS does to have japan they will no succeed!
and the reason is:

1: non japanese company
2: had bad reputation of only FPS console last gen
3: RROD, very unreliable
4: MS sucks in everything they do,
5: all the JRPG's so far r on the level of ps2!! just a little graphics improvement, so why should they abandon their ps2 JRPG's for 360??
6: cost more than ps3 in u include live and other feature that ps3 have!

blackbeld3768d ago

Misleading title :
wii is n°3, after DS and psp...not ps3 or 360

NewSchoolGamer3768d ago

that when 2 JRPGS are released for the xbox360 in Japan or maybe 1, sales go up for only a short amount of time.

When ff13 is released in japan expect a huge spike in PS3 sales for a much longer time.

Heck expect sales to increase when that Advent children bundle makes its way to japan.

Microsoft_Spokesman3768d ago (Edited 3768d ago )

Wow, the xbox 360s "win" in Japan was very short lived.

Microsoft_Spokesman3767d ago

Why did I get 2 disagrees? You can clearly see that it was short lived.
