Japanese gamers quizzed on which games they find most satisfactory have not only granted top position to a non-Japanese game, but to a non-RPG as well, in the form of Halo: Reach…
I call bullshit, the majority of Jap gamers don't even have a 360.
did you even read the article? It is not about how many copies the game sold, or how many people play it. Its about them being satisfied with the game itself. pretty much people gave ratings on there favorite games they where playing and the games with the highest score is most satisfactory. Halo actually had a lower sale rate but it would seem the gamers really enjoyed it.
But i thought Japanese people hate FPS?
japanese are smart people.
maybe that's why they don't buy 360's over there
chidori666,if this article is anything to go by,the,Japanese were smart people
i wonder who was responsible for the poll and who paid for it. how the testing was done may be a major factor. for instance if the majority of the people they asked were actually people living on a US military base in japan than these make sense
Please explain why it HAS to be Americans who voted for reach. BTW what is with this massive stereo typing on gamers? Asians don't only like RPGS. Just like Americans Don't only like shooters, Or European people like Soccer games only. Open your mind more please.
Some asians are scary good in shooters. SuddenAttack is popular from what I've heard (not in Japan though) However, all those ads on that site sure aren't helping japanese stereotypes. =/
Japanese Gamers Find 360 Least Desirable Console. This poll is highly suspect. I'd need more details about who was asked and how many and all that business before I'd believe this. If it's true, then... wow. Actually if it's true then 360 sales in Japan should skyrocket. If such a small percentage of people could have possibly played this game there, how can they represent "japanese gamers" as a whole? I'm in the US and I don't know anyone with a 360 anymore... maybe I should write an article saying Americans Abandon 360, since that's what happened in my gaming circle and I know multiple people who did it.
Before you go off writing that article, perhaps you should read this article first? It's based on satisfaction of customers who bought the game. So it's based on percentage of buyers who were satisfied with the game.
Out of the one person who bought Reach, one person was satisfied. Way to grab the Japanese audience, Bungie. -_- In all honesty, few developers pay fanfare as well as Bungie. They love their fans. I just don't happen to be one of them.
Actually if you turn on Reach and look at the world players map you can clearly see Japan is loaded with players (obviously just the southern portion now due to the recent events). And yes- they do own 360's over there.
