Whoa hold on there Eiffel.Japan still has huge game releases like Resident Evil 5,Street Fighter 4,Dragon Quest 9 and FFXIII.Its still an important market seeing as how over a dozen game companies still operate there.
I know. I wanted to see how many disagrees I could get and Japan/Anime fanatics I could piss off. It was never ment to be taken seriously after all this is the open zone.
lol My mistake.Not to mention its NPD day so the open zone is a hazard for the logical mind.
consoles are sucking bad in japan. i wonder why that is. i guess the japanese arent that into HD gaming. it's that or they cant fit HD tv's in their homes.
old stereotypes ROCK!
Japan's numbers doesn't even compare to bigger markets like NA.
"if you believe real hard, maybe it will come true" or atleast give us a good laugh.
Was that supposed to be a slam? Are you really trying to say that Japan's gaming market is as big as NA???? Wow. Somebody failed math.
Don't confuse console = whole gaming market. Then try again
"Japan's numbers doesn't even compare to bigger markets like NA." nor does NA compare to the entire world. I know, this kind of logic is hard to swallow, so I'll wait for you to finish up that food for thought. ^_^
Yeah, except the 360 owns the North American, European and Australian markets. By the way... NA > JP in sales :/
Such cute little numbers =)
The hentai games on the 360 didn't work out quite well? I thought the pornbox would do wonders with those games lol.
