Mike Wolf, ABI Research: "For all the talk of supporting the Japanese market with relevant titles, the [Xbox 360] launch list -- and even today -- shows a dearth of titles that will entice the Japanese game player. Ninety-Nine Nights and Final Fantasy XI are a start, but what they need are some exclusive must-haves that would drive the Japanese consumer to the console."
I see they like ChromeHounds a lot. That games tough.
I don't know about you guy but I have met a lot of gamers from Japan. I meet them alot on PDZ and Battlefield 2. Also what microsoft wants are japanese developers who they are getting like Capcom, Konami, Square Enix, Team ninja, phantagram and etc. They have them now we just need to wait a few years for these games to be made. We have Lost planet which is a beautiful game being released early next year and we have a few right now.
haven't we been through this enough, MS DOESN'T NEED JAPAN TO WIN.
Japan is not the huge games mecca it once was, back in the 80's you needed Japan to survive (not any more). I love Japanese titles but I think even the Asian developers realise they need to make worldwide games, rather than just homegrown interest.
