Some say that Japanese gamers hate FPS games. Others say that they can’t stand Western games. Today’s Media Create software charts say that they’re wrong.
All Hope is lost......... [EDIT] It was meant as a joke, about COD selling well in a country as japan. Guess people can't get that (that's the internetzzz i guess /s)
is that sarcasm? because those numbers are pretty good for a country hit hard by disaster. Shoot if they where smart they would have taken their focus away from games and media. But these are decent numbers all around.
He is referring to a game like COD selling well in general and not about their economic and disaster issues. You would think you would have understood that.
Yes, the numbers are good. really good for a game like that in the time of disaster.
Those are pretty much normal top ten numbers when you're not talking about a Final Fantasy/Mario/Dragon Quest/Pokemon game. Actually even a little higher than usual.
I'm actually very surprised about it. I was 100% sure that Ni No Kuni would have crushed MW3 to oblivion in Japan. On the other hand, it didn't really sell that well... Maybe everyone that was interested already has the DS version...
well in Japan if your gaming choices are: 1. a trillion anime Final fantasy clones 2. some Pokemon stuff 3. Rapelay or any other Pedophile game like Penn State Shower shoot-out 4. Modern Warfare 3 i would go with MW3
This is the most disgustingly stereotyping comment I've seen in a while.
I agree. Japan is one of those country's that would probably allow rape and pedophiles to molest young kids.
There are alot of Japanese anime films out there that have monsters or demons raping schoolgirls. It's not a stereotype if it's true.
and yet.... there are more pedophiles in America, than Japan by far. hm ....
2012... the end of the world is really coming!!!
I just came while reading this article!!!
Whoa....you need therapy! Dial 1-800-Get-help-now!
A game I dislike is selling very well in Japan!!!
I....I don't even.....
I thought the Japanese were supposed to be smart?
That's because you're easily impressed.
Thats N4G sweet talk because they buy more PS3's than 360S's. Guess that theory is dead.
So one game does well and that's supposed to be some indication that things are changing? Lemmings.
Well tbh,no one can deny that when a game appeals to a wide range of people,others will follow in the footsteps of creating similar games.
Different individuals have different tastes and some probably want to change their tastes. Just because MW3 did well in Japan doesn't mean they put aside their interests in other genres. I am pretty sure it would be more or less the same in the future anyway.
Japanese gamers are willing to give Western games a try. Why can't we give Japanese games a try? Oh I forgot most Japanese games never even make it to the US.....
I think that it sold very well because this game is published by Square Enix in Japan. And a lot japanese people bought it because of the loyalty of the trademark.. IMO
