X360's not really the big cheese in Japan, is it?

lelo2play2007d ago (Edited 2007d ago )

Yep... MS had quite a few exclusive JRPG's in the beginning, but the Japanese just didn't want the X360. I guess no more exclusive JRPG's for the X360 in the near future. I'd really like Lost Odyssey 2 but it probably won't happen.

people want jrpgs on ps3 not xbox 360 lol.

candystop2007d ago

Kind of like people want shooters on 360 not PS3 lol.

livinwitbias2007d ago

If I were MS I would dump the Japan market and use the money toward aquiring some 1st party software houses. Or use the money to strengthen other markets.

To hell with Japan.

The whole market is very different, shooters are not big.
The xbox is sort of made for that style of gaming, and its the home market for ps3/nintendo so MS will never expect to do amazing, but I guess they are trying to get a small following and hoping it could snowball.

"people want jrpgs on ps3 not xbox 360 lol."

With all the JRPG's the PS3 has, you do realize that the only successful (sales wise) JRPG on the PS3 is FF13?

In Europe and America not many people buy JRPG's.

Not really but they are high rollers in the industry as a whole. Nice try troll harder. Whata brain dead article.

karl2007d ago

Who gives a crap.. they contribution to the industry is equal to nothing!..

kazman2007d ago

Watch out Tinasumsum I just got back from a 3 day suspension for calling a guy a troll, called the mods on it and got banned for 3 days. Surprise surprise

ChristianGamer2007d ago

On the subject of japan, I read on another comment section that Black Ops sold more in japan than gt5...lol.
Anyway, what is the big deal with japan?

TBM2007d ago

really last i saw it barely broke the 100k mark while GT5 in closing in on 600k? also without japan you dont get mario, zelda, GT5, Resident Evil, street fighter, capcom vs whatever, all japanese rgps, just to name a few. i would take these over most games.

mrv3212007d ago

'Capcom

* There will be at least 4 Xbox 360 games released in 2011'

Capcom predicitions are a bit conservative... watch mine. Atleast 1 person will be born in the next 2 days.

This reads like a death note for the 360 in Japan.

kissmeimgreek2007d ago

Im pretty sue he meant 4 CAPCOM xbox 360 games...

m23452007d ago

lol, four games. idk whether to laugh or just shake my head at this.

ceedubya92007d ago

This IS Japan after all. 360 doesn't do great there.

Stealth20k2007d ago (Edited 2007d ago )

So what I got out of this is alot of the same. The ps3 is the system of choice in japan along with the psp being the handheld of choice (as of late)

@ below, the console of choice in the US seems to be the wii............its outselling all 3 consoles

Armyntt2007d ago

And tbh the X360 is the console of choice in the US. Not a fanboy here either. It just goes both ways.

FailOverHero2007d ago (Edited 2007d ago )

Handheld of choice is still the ds. You keep running to it each time you wanna down play halo reach sales by claiming pokemon black and white outsold it. Only reason you think psp is selling more is because media create list ds, dsi, ds lite and that silly jumbo ds as seperate consoles but tally them up and they are still numero uno

Oh and I noticed you pointed out the wii as the console of choice in the US but somehow manage to say PS3 is the console of choice in Japan...? Last I checked, Wii was still number 1. And if you wanna hide behind your as of late statement, X360 has been number 1 in the US for 6 months last year. . .
