Rookie_Monster1783d ago least Japan Xbox fans won't be left out like Destiny and Batman.

Xbox owners in Japan have a limited library when it comes to these AAA franchises, it's not even funny anymore.

MasterCornholio1783d ago

I know it isn't but at least they have PC and PS4 as an option for those franchise. Localization does cost quite a bit of money to do so its understandable if developers don't support a system with a minute install base.

Its makes sense financially.

MasterCornholio1783d ago

That's pretty great for Xbox fans in Japan my only worry for them is how match making will function with so little XB1 owners in that area.

CoD devs going all in with this one.

showtimefolks1783d ago

I am not much of a call of duty fan but if anyone can get cod back on track it's treyarch and the black ops series of games. now that cod have 3 years development under 3 different studios, I would like Atleast one of them to go back into world war 2 setting. almost every shooter now a days is set in future

black ops 3 will be huge IMO. ghost and AW left such a bad taste in everybody's mouths that activision hAve to deliver. cod brand hasn't been the same since ghost. before Tha every cod use to be the biggest launch in entertainment history. it was year tout by activision

Mostafeto1783d ago

Ghosts was decent but imo Black Ops is everybody's favorite series. Hell I would buy this game just for that new Zombies campaign. I am dying to play it.

showtimefolks1783d ago


will the zombie mode have an actual story mode?

Mostafeto1783d ago

@showtimefolks Yes bro check it out

"From the team behind the original Call of Duty Zombies, Treyarch returns with an all-new, mind-bending tale of the undead. Jeff Goldblum, Heather Graham, Neal McDonough, and Ron Perlman star in “Shadows of Evil,” an adventurously new survival co-op experience only available in Call of Duty: Black Ops 3. Set in the 1940’s, four unwitting characters are brought together under mysterious circumstances. Unravel the secrets and explore a massive world in the deepest Zombies experience to date."

I didn't receive my codes till now?! Any idea?

Mostafeto1783d ago (Edited 1783d ago )

I think they said in one of their FAQ, if you don't receive a code, contact the retailer you pre-ordered from to give you your Beta code then you take it and insert it here to get your Beta token to access the Black Ops III beta

Edit: If you pre-ordered digitally then you should be in it by now and Idk what to do to help you :D

Sarah_Ch1783d ago

Yea I got the code for beta access and redeemed it on that site. But didn't receive anything after that. Thanks anyway.

Kiwi661783d ago

Strange how there are some sites still saying that there won't be any xbox versions for japan but its good that there will be versions on all consoles in japan

Mostafeto1783d ago

It would be sad to see Japanese Xbox gamers left out of the Call of Duty train. It's enough they don't have Destiny.

kratoz12091783d ago

Good to see the 6 people that own a xbox one will get to play it over there.
