Japanese gamers want Oblivion

It seems like there is one game that attracts Japanese gamers for sure in the 360 line up.

That's Oblivion. Games with mythical stories always score good in Japan. It's also a lot seen in their culture. They started a petition to get the game to be translated in Japanese.

I guess it would be a good move from MS to do so to get Japanese gamers into buying 360 hardware (Xbox 360)

I don't read Japanese
I guess I'll take your word for it.

yea...
they should translate it to japanese maybe they could sell more consoles..=/
DC RID3R  +   3064d ago
of course they do.........
what a lot of people have to bear in mind, is that Japan is a very Honourable country , to the EXTREME!!
This may sound wiered, but buying an "MS console" is almost as comparable to f*ckin ur own momma over there!! Not because the Xbox is no good, but because it wasn't made in JAPAN!

But the funny thing is, is that where say 10 years ago, i would totally agree with them(snes,megadrive vs 3D0 cmon guys, that's a no brainer!!), things and technology just aint like that anymore, in the videogame world!!!
When Micheal Jordan and Scotty Pipen was just reaching for 3rd gear at chicago bulls, no-one I repeat NO-ONE thought their reign would or could end. "Who's ever gonna beat these guys?" were what most people screamed!

Where are the Bulls now??

When asked why SONY is better than MICROSOFT, most people respond with,"I think that Japanese technology is better than U.S!"

But how can this be??

You see, if I mention ATI and Nvidia, what first springs to mind?

Japanese companies or American??

Times have changed so much now, that all the next-gen consoles you and I argue over day after day, are or will be running mostly American(or NOT japanese tech then!)technology, especially or most importantly RUNNING the next-gen VISUALS!!!

ATI and NVIDIA,(or whichever order you prefer) RUN SH*T!!!

How long will they last?

Who knows, but I know one thing, NOT FOREVER!

Nothing lasts forever, look at SEGA!(even though it was Sony who snuffd em out!)

My point to this post is, "Don't bite your nose off, to spite your face."

If 10 years ago i were to tell you that one day the EUROPEANS would be invading the NBA you all would of looked at me like "what is this dude on??"

If 10 years ago (mike tyson era) i were to tell you that Iron Mike is gonna get sparked out by an unknown Londoner (danny williams)you all would of looked at me like "what is this dude on??".

The reason things change is, because when someone or something has become dominant, sooner or later they or it will become a little sloppy, not because it was their intention, but because THAT'S LIFE!!

The reason why Sony imo will not be as dominant force as it once were, is because they have been too sloppy in it's quality control!!

I used to really love my PS2!!

No other Football(soccer) game has quite held me as the PES series did on the PS1+PS2!!

But gradually, over the last year or so, iv'e felt myself slowly, falling out of love with a machine that I never thought could happen.
And not because of the games, the games were great on both PS sytems, not because of the controller either, as I do regard the PS pad essential to play PES with!

The reason iv'e fallan out of love with my PS2, is basically, because THE FUC*ER WONT WORK!!!

On your dvd player at home, I'm quite sure that when you insert a DVD, the player quickly loads it up, and then your off!!! EASY PEASY 123!!
Or better still, when you insert ANY kind of disk in your PC, the PC quickly loads it up, and then your off!!! EASY PEASY 123!!

So why, when it comes to the PS's, this procedure, isn't the case??

Is it me??Am I loading the game wrong??Am I looking in the right direction??Did I wake up at the wrong time today??Does God still love me??

All these questions I asked myself continually,over and over again as I tried to get my PES to load. What a load of SH*T!!!!!

After going thruogh 4 PS2's, after the 3rd one, I realised, it wasn't me that was at fault here. It was that 'black brick' sitting right in front of me,laughing to itself "hahah, that fool, don't son know, that I only load a game, when I WANT TO LOAD A GAME!?'

AND THAT'S WHY I DISLIKE (not hate) SONY!!!!

Sony's biggest weaknessis their quality control, it's not where it should be. Compared to Nintendo, Sony is a tramp,Nintendo's a dapper don!!

That's why I wouldn't be surprised to see MS and NINTENDO take the lead next-gen cos the most important thing about a games console isn't about how many teraflops it can handle, or, how many textered polygons it can push per second. What's the use in all these high specs, if when I put the game disk in the machine, it doesn't load?!?!

If the PS3's blue-ray drive operates anything like my Ps's do now, when either I'm trying to load a game, or watch a dvd, then I won't bother! I didn't know that pressing the reset button every 30 secs was game!!!

That's my point also. What does one think.

A BR standalone player costs something like 1.000 dollars/euro's good quality.

How are you ever going to get a good quality BR player in the PSZero then? Exactly: it will be of same damn quality as the PS2 drive.

I can understand your dissapointment, there are so many PS2 users that have that problem. But what to do with the games you already bought?

Sony is 666
andy capps  +   3064d ago
But the $1000 Blu-ray player is just that, a player. What will be in the PS3 is just a read-only drive, the other hardware in it has to process the information and spit it out to your TV or monitor. There is a Blu-ray rewritable drive coming out soon, or it may already be out, for $500. That's not bad at all for a first generation drive, especially considering that the one in the PS3 will be read only. I hope that Sony has learned their lesson with using with using the old tray based drives. I've never had a bad experience with a slot based drive. My launch PS2 is still working, maybe it's because I treat it with kid gloves, but I will still enjoy the slot based drive in the PS3.

They don't deserve Oblivion!
If they want it, they can buy a 360.

Just listen
I know im talking some of you to death but this is how i felt about some of the things sony did in the last 2 years. I Don't want Part 4's and 6's no more i want new games period.Microsoft showed me that when on E3 05 me a JiggaJayp were chilling watching the lies first hand and how G4 was payed-off to downplay playable demo's of good games and keep mention the how good the CG's of the PS2 Powered PS3 games looked.I Remember the Dude from Attack of the Showed asked a Guy in the Audience what he thought was the Coolest thing about the show and he said Xbox360's playable games,The moment he Said that he snatched the mic for him instantly to yap about PS3 offerings of CG's. Now in this day and Age People Say Japan Respects America's Hollywood Films more than anything so we should base games like movies to appeal to them, WE tried that but what the f^ck do you do to attract Fickle Gamers that think We Love Katamari is the Greatest game on earth? For Once in my life i Bought a American(And i Know America eats it own look what it doe'snt do for its own people.)Gaming console that is actually good and give me what i want for 300$ and feel like i made and investment. Mind you i grew up in the Days of Double Dragon and 4 player games from Konami in Playland in Manhattan back in the day so games like N:3 is a Site for sore eyes (You know how Bad i wanna be in middle of a 1000 enemies and destroy all of them). Forget conquering Japan that's been america problem for years always worrying about what goes on in other country's backyard and support our own for once (Cause Coorperate Japan Don't want anything from us to Succeed before theirs ever since What happened to Hiroshima.). Notice i did'nt bad mouth Sony Cause that's not going Help anything since Sony F^cked the gaming industry up with shady bussiness practicing bringing cooperate strongarm tactics to something that was once pure.

@DC Rider:i Love the comparison between the Bulls championship years.But believe it or not The Owner broke them up (In this case it will be KEN KUTARAGI that will be the downfall like Jerry Krause.)
I notice japanese gamers only want oblivion cause it is a RPG And i say we give it to em. Two Wrongs don't make a right we won't use their tactics on them we're bigger than that. I want Enchant Arms in a Fair trade.

G4 is biased towards Sony? Wow, that's a new one, I couldn't watch them during E3 for long because they were too busy sniffing Miyamoto's and Nintendo's jockstrap. I barely saw any positive coverage of Sony at E3 from G4, they loved MS and were talking (rightfully so) about Gears of War constantly. Then again, Adam Sessler and Morgan Webb get on my nerves, Keven Pereira is pretty funny and the new girl is ok.

Enchant Arms would hardly be a fair trade for the masterpiece of American RPG's. Give us full SquareEnix RPG support.
shotty  +   3064d ago
I heard Bethesda was busy translating the entire game to japanese and other languages. I guess they will announce it at TGS. This game has alot of voice from many people, it takes time to get the dialog right and have it sync with the characters.

Good idea
Well, if you want the Japanese to buy the console you might want to give them the good games.

Just a suggestion, really.

You're Absolutely right.what the hell is wrong with me.

G4 was extremely biased against Sony this year.
Suddenly it's popular to be hating on them since they've been so good to us for the past ten years. No matter if they deserve their number one spot, they need to go down! Hard!! ...???

Anyone get to read Joystiq's biased interview with Phil Harrison? The interviewer basically said "Did you know people are saying you're arrogant? Well they're saying you're arrogant. Well I think you're arrogant. It's pretty arrogant to say that you're not arrogant."

Pissed Phil off, and rightly so. He'll never let himself get interviewed in such an unprofessional manner again.
The Snake  +   3063d ago
Serves them right.
Well, they HAVE been pretty arrogant. Also, professional interviews just allow them to talk about what they want to talk about. Professional interviewers never ask the hard (important because nobody else asks them) questions. As for G4 being biased against Sony...they've been asking for it. Big time.
Islandkiwi  +   3063d ago
Wow, you're totally off
They're so not biased against Sony...it's just that Sony's showing at E3 was lackluster. But normally G4 talks up Sony big time.

Does anyone care, anyway? G4 sucks ass.
The Snake  +   3063d ago
Yeah
G4 does suck.
DJ  +   3063d ago
.
I'm simply curious about this. Can anyone define a 'hard question for Sony' for me? Asking "are you arrogant" is a simple yes or no question. I figure the question would have something to do with their strategy of targeting older gamers at the risk of alienating young gamers...or something like that. This is one of those questions that I haven't seen a single interviewer ask a Sony rep, and it'd be nice to see how that representative reacts.
SDS Overfiend  +   3063d ago
ask a what?
here's a question can we play a demo of something for PS3?
TheMART  +   3062d ago
Another one: may we actually see ingame footage now FIVE months before world wide launch instead of CGI?

And:

Do you know where the big guns for PS3 this Christmas are?

And:

Are you going bankrupt over the PSZero?

Or

Will there be another delay?

Man to many questions actually that are all really great to see answered. Best thing still though is the one above, to play a demo on a demopod or so. But I guess we won't see any because they know it'll lose against Gears of War and Forza 2 on the 360 demopod this Christmas
SDS Overfiend  +   3062d ago
PS3 is trash.as of matter of fact sony is trash.
No demos for 2 years now but we do get to watch cool episodes of mgs4 the webisodes.
