It's now officially launch day for Biohazard 5, or more commonly know as Resident Evil abroad, in Japan! Thousands of Japanese have lined up, eagerly waiting for their chance to pick up the title.
20 bucks says all those people are lining up for the ps3 version
ps3 sales should soar,but 360 should see a little boost also
Their source is Famitsu http://www.famitsu.com/game... They show both selling. However, It's obvious that PS3 will out sale Xbox in Japan.
Thats alot of PS3 fans
So after Yakuza 3, PS3 will continue to dominate for a few weeks in Japan, awesome. RE5 will probably help 360 in Japan, on two pics we can see people getting 360 version or bundle, so i guess that's good for them, but still we all know PS3 will sell more.
so we know it has sold at least 2 on Xbox. Good for Microsoft!
so many people. do lines like that actually happen for any games in the US? Grand Theft Auto or Halo, perhaps? i've never seen one, though I don't exactly live in a populated area.
I've seen it done for the launch of the consoles, but never for games. Maybe Halo too.
The 360 version was released a day early - through no underhanded effort by MS - Honest!
that tells you something if the 360 version was released 1 day earlier and there were no lines until the official release seems like those are all ps3 owners was it just that one store?
It's one store (or franchise) and it is being grossly over-exaggerated.
Cool, can't wait for the U.S. release.
That is good news for capcom. Also i wouldn't be surprised if those where ps3 owners.
HAHAHA talk about over exagerration. The image source, Famitsu, says the queue reached "almost 25 people!" HAHAHA. Miles lol
Hmm maybe MILES in between them?
Oh man I'm excited! I just hope my pre-order arrives on launch day like killzone 2 did! guess I'll only order from Amazon from now on.
Cant wait for this game. I dont know why everyone hates the controls. I mean I do wish you could move and shoot but whatever. The Co-Op is amazing with a friend.
No the controls are horrible. Have you played Dead Space? There is a demo out on the PSN and Xbox marketplace. Go download it. You can't move and shoot. You have to stop, but it was done so dame good. Comparing it to RE5 is just plane stupid because the RE5 controls aren't on the same level as Dead Space. RE5 may have a better story than Dead Space and have a kick ass co-op but in term of gameplay, Dead Space is far superior to RE5.
I played the Dead Space demo and it's the worst demo I have ever played, terrible terrible demo. RE5 > Dead Space as a matter of fact, Silent Hill Homecoming > Dead Space BTW I have played the full version of Dead Space as well and I stick by my opinions.
"Miles of Japanese line up to bring back their xBox 360's"!!! ;-D (+Yes i know it's on the xBox 360 to, but RE is PlayStation) ;) + i guess - 'Resident Evil 5' for the PS3 in Japan is called 'Biohazard 5' & 'Resident Evil 5' for the xBox 360 in Japan is called 'Firehazard 5' ;-D ;-D ;-D
hahahah!! great laugh sir ken... that made my fvcking day at work!
This is Gun Valkyrie all over again(the control complaints) and all that game did was separate the gamers from the pansies, and I guess RE5 will too. I didn't understand the GV complaints because I picked it up and learned it in 10 minutes and in a few hours I was fighting the final boss, which I didn't beat oddly lol, but still, this is that all over again.
Hell yeah they are lining up for the PS3 version, hell i would too f i were in that area. NOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! I was gonna order this http://www.play-asia.com/pa... one BUT its out of stock......*SAD* man was too late. IF i had ordered this one along with fast shipping in time ive would of been playing it early next week.
"ive would of been playing it early next week." Like the rest of us.
the RE series seems to be very popular in Japan.
