Bungie: We've got work to do in Japan

A few Bungie members have made the trip to Tokyo Game Show to fly the Halo flag and attempt to get Japanese gamers excited about Halo 3.

Speaking to Next-Gen head of production Jonty Barnes said, "I think that we recognise at Bungie, while we have a very intimate understanding of our community in North America and across Europe, I think we have got some work to do for our friends in Japan, to really improve both their understanding of the game. We also would like to know what the Japanese public would really like and have them help build our community."

I love halo, but I think we all need a break from the constant barage (sp)? of halo news.

Ares843648d ago

every second news is about Halo!!! ok fine we got it...it's a great game!!!! Wonderfull now go and buy it and play it and let other "real" news come ne here for a change.

Oh the other hand....man Japan will never go for Halo. They are not as crazy about FPS games as we are so I think they should give it a rest!

Ares843648d ago

Not anymore!!! I think I speak for everyone here when I say that if I see another Halo "news" story I will puke!!

BloodySinner3648d ago

This coming from a user with a PlayStation avatar and 3 bubbles. <sarcasm> Yeah, let's all listen to you. </sarcasm>

Halo 3 will never penetrate Japan with a huge success, xbots at bungie are so dumb.

Yeah we're getting sick of this halo halo news created by insecure fanbots.

BloodySinner3648d ago

Actually, we're getting sick of insecure PlayStation "fanbots" who make useless comments, such as you.

kevin11223648d ago

you make just as bad remarks as him sinner. so how about everyone stop's being fanboys and just enjoy the damn games.

borgome3648d ago

Nobody gives a rip about Japan and the lame a$$ games they develop.

PERIOD!!

MikeGdaGod3648d ago

let me take a wild guess.......u don't have a PS or a Wii. otherwise your comment make absolutley no sense. especially since those bases together completely out-number the 360 base. not to mention the PS2 base.

Have you considered because there are too many xbots running around this site like yourself? Also guys like POG, theMART, Bladestar, you etc still have 5 stars shows that there are too many xbots putting negative feedback on everyone and positive on other xbots.

If Halo sells in Japan it will be very few. Japanese love innovation Crysis in Japan will do way better then Halo.

Also right now there are more players playing Counter Strike online when Halo can ever have.

Call me Sonyboy or whatever makes you feel better. I'll be playing Crysis Tomorrow and day after tomorrow. Now thats a REAL FPS.

Halo gets 10 score. With that critria games like Half Life 2 should get like 18+ score out of ten.

Also if you read all reviews they contradic themselves by criticising game in nearlyu every aspect and then giving it 10. Probably yuou just saw score and started flaming people who actually read the review. Now you will say "Halo is about MP!!!" Well I tried Halo 3 beta at my friend and its crap. Enjoy your not even last gen because last gen I was playing online 64 players with NO LAG. Now you gonna say "But its on PC" Well Resistance has 40 players online without lag and Warhawk has 32 with rumor its going to be 64

iceice1233648d ago

An idiot. You try to bring Halo down but fail so badly. Lets looks at what you said.

"If Halo sells in Japan it will be very few. Japanese love innovation Crysis in Japan will do way better then Halo."

Crysis innovative? How so, pretty graphics is hardly innovative, this isn't the playstation/N64 era anymore. It will do better in Japan? Probably, doesn't make it better than Halo.

"Also right now there are more players playing Counter Strike online when Halo can ever have."

Yep, but that's a pc game. It's alot older and well established too. Try again please, now you're just grasping straws.

"Call me Sonyboy or whatever makes you feel better. I'll be playing Crysis Tomorrow and day after tomorrow. Now thats a REAL FPS."

Real FPS? Having pretty graphics makes a game a real FPS? Wow, you really don't know a thing.

"Halo gets 10 score. With that critria games like Half Life 2 should get like 18+ score out of ten."

No, just no. You have nothing left to say, do you? Half-life is good, but Halo is the consoles equivalent.

Then you go on to say about ahh R:FOM so many online like Warhawk!!! Well guess what, more people doesn't=better. Those games prove that. halo will top them both combined very very very easily. That's not even fanboyism it is the truth.

So what this comes down to is your mindless Halo flaming, do you hate actors because they're popular too?

CRIMS0N_W0LF3648d ago (Edited 3648d ago )

Having that avatar really shows your fanboyism. Also due to that fact whatever are the facts nothing gets in your brain because its too small.

Did you play Crysis Beta? I did so I know more then you know. You Fail.

I don't see the amount of players playing Halo 1 and 2 online compared to CS 1.6 which is very old. Thus proven its a very good game not a game for that time only like a trend.

Again you did not play Crysis so you cannot talk. Also A lot of FPS has way better online then Halo and story. Halo is just a run and gun with auto aim for noobs.

If you played other FPS you will know Halo is just overrated medicore shooter for begineers.

Can you kindly explain how Halo online is good? There is no tactics no teamplay no fun just run and gun.

the best fps multiplayer games are
Deathmatch q2, q3, UT2
Best team based : team fortress /battlefield
Best tactical: counterstrike
Best rpg/fps: Deus Ex
Best Ctf: tribes 1, quake 2 ctf
Best coop single player : sorry but I had much more fun playing serious sam coop vs halo coop.

Halo is like Britney Spears. Mainstream stuff that sells a lot not matter whats the product is. I bet behind Master Chief's Helm is Britney Spears skin head.

MikeGdaGod3648d ago

what i want to know is how blatent fanyboys like Icewake have more bubbles than us.

people want to say how this site is run by sony fans but the xbots outnumber us by a large number and always have more bubbles. they never say anything constructive or non-bias.

*sigh*

whatever

BIadestarX3648d ago

I'm happy you mentioned me. it means I am worthy of carring the blade of destruction against Sony fanboys. and I dont have 5 bubbles... do you know why? Because there are lots of sony fanboys... most of the anti-xbox 360 articles get easly published... including fake stuff like 2/10 review of Halo 3.

socomnick3648d ago

Crimson I know you are a pc gamer but dude that don't mean you have to hate on halo so much. Its not halos fault that pc gaming is dieing . Its not halos fault that you stay in your room masturbating to crysis.

Why do you state your opinions as if they are fact? I also like how you call be a fanboy when you call people xbots, you're much worse than me. I didn't play the Beta, doesn't mean I fail. I've seen enough videos to know this is another passable FPS, but due to its graphics people care. Again with CS? It is an older computer game that is well established. No doubt it has more people playing. Doesn't make it better than Halo, now does it?

[Edit] Oh and Crims0n, how is crysis innovative at all? Halo 1 brought LAN to console gaming. Halo 2 is the definitive online console experience with a party system yet to be matched (Until tomorrow) and Halo 3 is pushing it further with the connectivity to Bungie.net that's second to none. All Crysis has is pretty.

"If you played other FPS you will know Halo is just overrated medicore shooter for begineers."
I have, many times. You're just a fanboy and can't appreciate a good game that's on another console. Either that or you're on of those people who hates things that are popular.

Funny you say can you explain how Halo is good online it is just run and gun yet you list UT as a best FPS. Halo isn't as run and gun as UT, you still need to use tactics and think. You saying otherwise it just proof you've never played it ever. You're just another blind fanboy who is jealous a game is famous for being good and can't except it. Just move along, you'll get over it someday.

[Edit2] they never say anything constructive or non-bias.

That's actually not all true for me. Also, I have more bubbles because I don't spam crap like you must have.
