Why do so many people in Japan were face masks. Is the air quality really that bad there (can't possibly be any worse than L.A. yet I see nobody wearing facemasks there) or are a lot of them just paranoid.

No,they have the flu,educate yourself bro!

In Japan,when you are sick (mainly having the Flu) you are required to wear a Face mask so you don't infect other people around you,and that my funny smart friend is how it should be.

You don't want to get someones else disease,do you now?

That is interesting, I never knew that.

While it would certainly help the elderly(which from what I understand is a good chunk of the population) I would have to wonder what that does to younger people though.

After all, getting over a cold gives your body immunities to sickness later in life. Limited exposure early on could cause a lot of harm later on if you get sick and don't have the antibodies to fight it off. It is still a good policy though in my opinion, even if it looks a little odd out on the street.

Its done that way to prevent outbreaks... the amount of people in japan is staggering... you dont want a national wide flu there...

It's not required; it's courteous.

When cities are as densely populated as some Japanese cities are i would damn well expect it to be the case.

@ Knushwood Butt

Late Februrary?

What an odd time frame for a new video game hardware release.
