Gears of War 2 readies Japan release

A Microsoft spokesperson told Edge late in October that the game wouldn't be released in the country " indefinitely " , just hours before Microsoft hurriedly retracted its statement and claimed there was no announcement to be made.

I remember when Gears of War 1 made the Top 10 software charts in Japan. They actually did Japanese voice acting for the game.

Japan can they even handle a game like Gears of War 2?

I dont know if they are anything like your @ss, they can handle a whole lot, speaking of your @ss, hows your boyfriend doing?

dumb move M$ by the time Gears 2 comes out in Japan alot of anticipation would have been gone for it , they should have released it the 1st week of December sales would have been a lil decent.

I think I remember reading an article about Gears2 not coming to Japan but finally it will. but seriously, even if they released it on the same day as USA, it will never do any good for the game over there. Japanese gamers don't really play this kind of games!

I hope they market it as well as they've done in the rest of the world. Always good to see hardcore western titles be released in Japan and hardcore japanese titles find their way over here. Exchange of gaming culture.
