They never learn.
Getting such game costs as for mobiles may be. Why shouldn't they purchase?
What does that even mean ?
After the latest flop of Chaos;Child , i think they do realize that the japanese 360 niche they had didnt move on to XB1 ...
I think it is pretty much undebatable that JP devs going Xbone exclusive and only releasing in JP is flat out stupid. I think JP games can succeed on the platform in the west just quality is a must and so is marketing. Either way it is better to localize then not if you go exclusive to a very niche product in JP.
Microsoft needs more Japanese games.... Japanese developers are stupid for working with MS.... MS Xbox One sucks because it doesn't have Japanese games... Rinse, Repeat.
N4G logic at it's finest.
If funded and published by MS , then it should be an Xbox exclusive . But if a third party publisher is funding then by all means take it Multi platform . JMO
Please, let's not go this route with another generation of games, Japan. They didn't sell last time around, they won't this time, either. Edit: Maybe, but that's only by relative standards. Can you honestly say the sales wouldn't have been better on pretty much any other hardware?
5pb's games actually sold well on 360 . They had a strong secure niche over there , along a few shmups . The problem is that it's even bigger now on vita/ps3 , and that their 360 japanese audience hasnt at all made the jump toward the XB1 like they expected
So they want their games to flop by making it Xbone exclusive.
No matter what happens the N4G(ps) fanboys will never stop crying.
