KeMoBLUE4131d ago

man you're an idiot. PSM isn't owned by sony you fool. why the hell would anybody rate their own games??? besides both lair and warhawk have been given high ratings by other people. not to mention the guy who did these ratings use to work for OXM. check the 360 side for the story i don't feel like looking for it but im pretty sur others can confirm it.

If they sold it for $3.60 . Hell even at that price for the Japanese consumer might be asking for too much :D

Mikelarry4131d ago

should just abandon any hopes of selling thier system in japan its crystal clear the japanese dont want anything to do with the console instead wasting all that effort over there they should concentrate on other regions who have accepted thier system.

From the country that brought you winners like Beautiful Kalamari.....Ack!

There's no accounting for taste, although there is something to be said for buying domestic.

Here's how to bolster 360 sales in Japan. Instead of a basic white case, market the 360 wrapped in images of semi-nude cartoon girls.

It would be a huge seller. Go figure.

and One of the most original games ever made. I was obssessed with the game for a while. America is much worst in the games they choose, imo. They only enjoy sports, and shooters.

Microsoft could stop selling defective hardware.

The only thing Japan is good at is art and character design. I think the real problem is that the developers are complacent. With the exception of a few devleopers like Team Ninja and Capcom, Japan is stagnant. Random battles, fixed cameras, and turn-based combat have been around way too long.

I'm amazed by the amount of people who diss Japan, and their "tastes." It's on the opposite side of the world from the U.S., the culture is entirely different. Instead of trying to assimilate them into playing FPS games online, which is apparently an advance according to some people, it's up to console makers to market their machines to appeal to the people there. Microsoft has failed to do this properly, as Sakaguchi himself would tell you, and the Xbox 360 is suffering because of it.

Different genres appeal to different people living in different cultures. Some people need to understand this, and stop acting like the Borg.
