Speaking at TGS08, Microsoft's Corporate Vice President of Xbox Live, John Schappert, said that "Xbox 360 is the best platform for Japanese publishers."
oh how money can change people....
Business is about money and always will be.
Must not be that faulty anymore as 360 has been outselling the PS 3 lately ;)
It's just so funny that fanboys think that the people creating games aren't in it for the money... It's true that they want to create a great experience for gamers to enjoy and remember, but in the end... it's about money! They want to make money and alot of it! Come on people... please don't live up to the cliche' that gamers are stupid! Be aware of how things work. It is a business, just like anything else. Just like McDonalds, Wal-mart, etc.
Hahahohohaha! ohh Microsoft...
then witch one is it? the ps3? hahahahahahahahaha theres no love for xbox neither ps3 in japan right now..wii and handhelds is the only thing japan cares... but hey ..if laughing makes you feel better..ill help here hahahhahahahahaha
PS3 has sold 2.5m consoles in Japan vs just 600k x360s in 3 years x360 sales have dropped back below ps3 next week where will x360 be when Samurai 3/yaluza 3/MUSOU 2 and WKS are launched on PS3 this december Oh wait x360 is a dead console in both Japan and europe. NA to go in Japan x360 costs 1/4 as a ps3 BTW ingame GAYLO3 RECON shot. looks like dogsh888 http://www.slashgamer.com/w... ROFL
Hey nasim that picture of Halo 3 multiplayer looks really good. I really like Ghost Town. That map has been out for around 6 months. Try and get some more knowledge about what you are saying. The XBOX is dead in Europe? that weird, it sounds like it is outselling the ps3 in almost every region of Europe. Try not to slit your wrists when you see the NPDs this month, it's going to be a very sad day for you. I won't even open up that Japan scar for you. Dead...really? Try again. *Edit* Oh yeah...Fufotrufo, There is some positive feedback from me. Keep up the good fight
lol nice joke microsoft
Its also the best platform for delaying Tekken
Well, GTAIV was delayed due to the PS3, so it's not like that crap hasn't happen to 360 owners. However, I think most people, whether you have a PS3 or an Xbox 360 have plenty of games for 2008. Heck, we just got Soul Calibur IV. Can you blame Microsoft for taking care of their user base?
Correction: There was a delay on GTA4 that was because of the 360 shortly thereafter, making that PS3-caused delay moot by definition. If you're going to tell THAT story, tell the ENTIRE STORY, not just the story that fits the ideal you want to give to people.
Mass adoption will never stick... Japanese will stay more closely to the Wii or PS3... It will definitely get a nice piece of the market share but won't be huge in the end.
heh. MS throwing its weight around.
They actually have some evidence now.
Internet would die.
Nice one Microsoft. /sarcasm You get a fighting game and you start the bragging rights all over again. You make me sick.
He thinks the Xbox 360 is the best platform for Japanese publishers, but the Xbox 360's installbase is less than HALF of the PS3's in Japan and hasn't even hit a million. The Xbox 360 is the best platform for Japanese publishers? I think not. The PSP, PS3, Wii and DS are the best platforms for Japanese developers and publishers alike.
I must admit I actually laugh LOL. +bubbles
Because inferior hardware, a restrictive online system, and a controller that doesn't do RPG's very well is the BEST!
Inferior hardware that plays games at higher resolutions, superior unified online that is the same for every game no matter what and the best most comfortable controller - jealous much ?
Yeah, if they want to go broke. We all know XB has had some MILD success in Japan recently but lets not go nuts. It fact what they're doing now only looks so good because what they did before was so terrible. Its not time to be bragging yet. Have you forgotten PS3 has been leading world wide sales since Mass Effect came out?
WTF do you think he is going to say!? Well, the PS3 is the best hardware for you guys and probably the best console in the world, but hey, give Xbox a try fellas, you will lose lots of cash on our console, but give it a shot! F'n christ you people.
Can't be happy for all gamers to play games? Not everyone can afford both consoles. Would be happy for Gears on the PS3 too I bet!?! Or even the mighty Halo? Of course you would, just like we xbox owners would like MGS 4, but thats marketing for you. Besides exclusives there is no need for any third party developer not to go multiplatform. Financially it doesn't make sense and with the Global finance markets chances are less and less games will be made.
Ha yeah, why not, i mean... Japanese Publisher loooves American Consoles... No i mean, seriously, who shat in his head?
i'm happy that MSFT are keeping their user base happy. i mean, who's gonna say no to more games? especially games as good as ff13 and tekken series.
The Japanese will commit mass harry carry before migrating to an American made game console. Give it up dumb arses.
just go watch some blu-ray. ain't that why you got a ps3?
You and that other guy from E3 really need to STFU and KNOW YOUR DAMN ROLE! Enough with the BS no one is that gullible that RROD piece of monkey crap sucks as lasting hardware in features and the lack of BR. M$ your holding gaming back by your money and that hurts gamers.
Is he high?
HAHA, the Sony Defense Force is in full effect. You guys just hate when the 360 gets good news, huh? Watch out for the 360 Night Train because it's in full speed. WOOOOOOO WOOOOOOOOOO! :)
WOOW, Xbox kings is in full effect. You guys just hate when 360 "good news" isn't taken the way you want it to be. Watch out for the reality Night Train because it's in full speed...with no sign of slowing down. WOOOOOOO! WOOOOOOOO! :)
And you hate it when the PS3 gets good news. Look what I did there! :T
... and I want you to know, that you sure as hell don't qualify. Seriously, how childish can you get?
how many peoples are fighting for this but any brand would say the same thing, that their product is best and also this is an advertisement and not a news.
love when everyone that post think they know what they arte talking about....360 most JRPG=more sales for Japanese
... I mean, seriously, what other gaming company will PAY you out the ass to stay off the other consoles? It's win-win, baby! Oh look, it's Captain Retard-O... Dah, I mean Firstkn1ght... Wherever there is console controversy... especially if it shines everyone EXCEPT Microsoft in a negative light, he'll be there... da da daaaaaaaaaaaah!!!
listen man ,i'm not a ps3 or 360 fanboy but , the reason why 360 outsold ps3 last month is because of that game infinitive undiscovery ok , that game helped the 360 outsell the ps3 last month, but typically japanese people don't like the 360, but they had no choice to but to get the 360 in order to play infinitive undiscovery ok , this was the same thing with tales of vesperia , and it will be the same thing when last remnant comes out next month for 360, but the ps3 version will come out sometime early next year. Once white knight chronicles comes out for ps3, ps3 sales will sky rocket and 360 sales will go down, and ps3 will get the lead. Listen i know that you are a 360 owner,but i own both consoles but i like the ps3 more, i want the ps3 to get better and have more games, the 360 on the other hand is that i can't really get into it that much , i was into it when halo 3 came out but i lost my touch with it now, fable 2 and gears of war 2 are coming out, fable 2 is a very good game and so as gears of war 2, but 360 has no other exclusives i see that are coming out next year. It kinda hurts me to see that microsoft is taking most games from sony and seeing that sony is getting hate from some people. dude please if you are going to reply back , please don't act like a fanboy in front of me ok,just because i like ps3 more ok by the way i mean no disrespect.
