Amazon has revealed the Japanese box art for MAG.
looks really bad ..
The japanese box art covers have been really bad lately. You guys remember the hilarious Uncharted 2 box art? I could have sword it was Metal Gear from Nintendo days.
Why does it remind me of that communist hand symbol?
JPN box art for gun games aren't at all attractive to NA gamers. That's cause NA doesn't look at guns the way JPN does. For JPN, this type of box art works best. Any other box art outside of the shooting genre, JPN box arts usually rock.
the hand dosent fit with the background
Just imagine how bad this game will be if out of the 256 people playing at once, 200 are spawn campers!!
No need to imagine such a nonsense, MAG aint COD.
omg who the hell comes up with these crappy box arts man?
Regardless of box art, I wonder how many people in Japan want this game.
Surprisingly JPN had a much higher than normal presence in the beta for MAG.
oh ok cool
I like it more than the US one, I think the UK version is still best though. Then again I am SVER.
I like the American box art better. The Japanese one kind of sucks.
5 ppl will buy it in Japan, whats the point in releasing it over there?
Not really I think. Will sell decent over in japan. There were alot of Japanese in the beta
and the top players were japanese players in the beta at the end of the game's beta, i even played along side a few japanese players on one of my groups and we had a blast.. the game is very popular in fact. Zipper said there were more Japanese Players on the open beta than there were americans.. So Go figure.. the interest for this game is massive.Z It'll be a very big surprise, this game just may sell faster than Uncharted 2, and thats a good. thing.
Better Japan support this Game, is much better than the averages co-op FPS Games
I am in Japan and i can say first hand this game really isn't the big news. iv been to 4 game stores and only 1 had an Ad for the game. and this add was behind the Final fantasy PS3 add. i asked the shop worker if he new if the game would also have English similar to Killzone 2. and he said. (well basically this) "I'm not sure i haven't heard much about this game." the only games Japan is focused on right now is, the new Final fantasy And valkyria chronicles 2 that came out for the psp yesterday. i know many players played the beta in japan (as did i) but one of the major reasons for this is that the Japanese PS store doesn't get a LARGE amount of demo content for it being the primary console of this country and because of this when something new is released people jump on it. FPS games are not as popular here. and this was stated in the release of Killzone 2. that is why Japan got 2 KZ2 Demos, because they were trying to push an unpopular genre onto a RPG/ Action adventure loving group. i cant be certain, it may sell great! and i hope it dose, i would love to play it with my friend here. anyway please don't take this post to seriously and don't comment on my poor grammar. i know my english is bad.
