Is it really that deep? Gosh!

How many games offer Portuguese as a language anyway?

Most games released in the Brazilian & Portuguese market only get subtitles. Gamers should be happy that at least ND took the time to give them the option of dubbed audio.

I'm Brazilian and I must agree. You probably don't have the idea on how some specific/regional/contextual words are translated when these guys bend to game, or even any IT text/app localization.

It's not like a (if you never saw you must....) translation but it just feels unnatural. I'll always vote for a subtitled version, and even yet - personally - I'll choose English subtitles. But for those here who can't read English subtitles go with the Portuguese ones...

Game developers should research more about the people they are localizing to, because if they did they would know that here in Brazil at least (I don't know about Portugal) it's WAY TOO MORE acceptable a movie (for example) be subtitled than subbed. There are some groups of the population where open TV shows everything subbed but they are, definitely, not the public game developers should aim for.

are they mad that it is not dubbed right? i personally don't find that stuff annoying when they do it with spanish, but if they're going to do it it would be nice if they did it right. When they do spanish, they usually do spanish from spain, not american spanish, so its understandable to a certain point.

PirosThe4th2600d ago

I reckon they should start doing dubbings for games in Neutral Spanish and not spanish from Spain...

Is it too much to ask? :P

I guess there are some Portuguese gamers that care :p

cannon88002601d ago

I would be one of them hehe :P Of course I'm not going to get pissed of if the Portuguese sounds like a retarded potato.

inveni02601d ago

Most of the Portuguese people I know speak fine they'll probably leave it on English anyway. For the people that don't: Just be happy you get to play at all. Leave it on English voices but use Portuguese subtitles.

FlashBack2600d ago

I'm portuguese and I prefer Subtitles only, dub sounds stupid

Chaostar2601d ago (Edited 2601d ago )

People who speak Portuguese care, it IS an issue, however it's not nearly as big of an issue as the media would like you to believe.

edit: Dark-hollow beat me to it.

then UNCHARTED 3 play in Japanese

Major_kenny2601d ago

and I just played the demo, but it's as bad as seeing anime dubbed in english or a movie dubbed in spanish xD

Buuhan12601d ago

English anime dubbing has gotten a lot better, in fact most dubs nowadays are really good. But I understand what you're saying. I don't understand a single bit of the language, but even I can tell that "voice acting" in the Portuguese trailers are awful.

MidnytRain2601d ago

Well, I've been watching Toradora and I have to say that while I don't even know if there is a dubbed version, I can't say I'd want it. Something about the original voice acting is special and it needs to be heard in its truest form.

MsclMexican2600d ago

Wait... the Portuguese have the demo for this amazing game...

What the hell man

JBernardo2601d ago

I care... Even though this is not the version I'll play. I'll play the European Portuguese Version (this is the Brazilian one). Nevertheless, all versions need to be solid, at least synchronized properly.

Imalwaysright2601d ago

Yep thank god as imo the portuguese dubbed version on Uncharted 1/2 were better than the original. Got scared for a moment there.

Jack_DangerousIy2601d ago

There is an easy, obvious solution to this problem...

I just don't know what it is. ;)

What a clever boy you are. :)
