It has no future, because its Japan and they like hentai, anime and rpgs. The bottom line its that MS should off had the rrod fix within the first 6 month, but they decided to ignore it and 3 years after the so called rrod its fix, but brought another set of issues error 84. Although they could drop the price again on the 360 they wont because off the faulty error 84. And the pS3 its a hyped garbage in japan. Give them a wii-wii to play hentai and the Japanese are all set to play shake and ratle the stick.

Because they are intelligent;)
Now people who buy a 'ChatBox 360' are the Opposite of intelligent!!! ;-D

...I think those Japanese gamers that did buy a 360 were angry when games like Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 and Tales of Vesperia were announced for PS3 with better and more content. And did you see the Microsoft press conference they recently held in Japan? Almost every single game they hyped was a multiplatform game.

Why would 360 fans get angry over a 1yr old game? I'm glad you're happy about getting sloppy seconds since you seem to be into that.

morganfell3484d ago

No, those games are sloppy firsts. Then after the bugs are worked out they are beefed up, patched and they come to the PS3.

You can't find better anti 360 news?

"PS3 with better and more content"

I would hope so for me that would be the only factor that would convince me of even thinking about buying games so old.

The Japanese market is looking west anyhow the Japanese don't buy too many games anyways.

I don't get it, is this news suppose to be a paybacks because of your PS3 insecurities. Its almost like natural good 360 news is seen as an attack on PS3 and deserves retaliation.

Obama3484d ago

Ng2 and Vesperia for the ps3 are basically the complete version with additional content like coop and new characters and fixed bugs. In other words, the 360 BETA-tested these games for us.

Press agree if you think XLIVE is awesome and disagree if you're a douchebag.

Shadow Man3484d ago

GTA4 and Fallout3 for the 360 are basically the complete version with additional content new characters and fixed bugs. In other words, the ps3 gets the incomplete version.

Works both ways then, huh?

n to the b3484d ago

oh, snap! Shadow Man for the win!

lol too many of these sonyfan 360-haters talk 1st and think 2nd.

morganfell3482d ago

Really? GTA4 was centered around Nikko. How does DLC about a group of guys Nikko stomped the crap out of and that are riding the worst vehicle in GTA4 make the original more complete? It doesn't.

You can talk until you are blue in the face but you fool no one. You were hit by the DLC sucker punch, not us.

Worried about its future? Are they talking about RROD or the lack of games in 09, or both?

II Necroplasm II3484d ago (Edited 3484d ago )

Just RROD. and it's an electronic american product

No Way3484d ago

Maybe it's that MS dumped the xBox, and they think MS will do the same with the x360.

Just a thought? o.O
