This is new to me, never expect japanese to like GTAs before, i thought they're into RPGs, online games and some other genre. Though there are some games that the western still enjoyed like Wangan Midnight, Initial D, Yakuza series, Tekken series, hell the GT series too

Only 2 games from non-Japanese developers got into top 100 best-selling games in Japan last year: "Call of Duty: Black Ops II" and "Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3"

Wait what ? I thought i read one of the post here saying that COD is called western dogsh*t ? Though i recall meeting a bunch of japanese *ssholes who kill each other to get emblems or other stuff in a team deathmatch.


CoD is western dogsh*t but popular everywhere. Cod is such a sh*t, that it's unstoppable

Yeah but thats not the point right now lol, cant understand how japs called them dogsh*t hen its making huge sales there. I guess little kids in japan loves those repetitive sh*t .

There are definitely people in Japan who think that "Cod is the best game ever!!!!11111"

I love Japanese games. I truly do! I love anime and Japanese culture too.

But Japanese people have no right to call western games dog sh*t. Just look at Japanese game developers like Capcom and Square Enix.

@rampage08

I know that but the 360 sales are just horrible in Japan.

Maybe it's because all the 360's got the RRoD and that made it terrible over there. And as you said, PS3 is a Japanese product to begin with.

Yes, there is separation of market.

XBOX360 - 42.83m
PS3 - 26.44m

---

Europe:

XBOX360 - 23.43m
PS3 - 29.27m

---

Japan:

XBOX - 1.64m
PS3 - 9.24m

---

Rest of World:

XBOX360 - 7.42m

You mean the makers of such games as Street Fighter and Final Fantasy? Yeah those games are only popular in Japan... sarcasm.gif

OT: I prolly could have guessed that the sales numbers for western games would be lower in Japan. It's a pretty insulated culture, still it's good to see GTA getting hyped in Kotaku. Anyone posting bullsh*t about the OP thinking 'Merica is the only country in the world should check into any inferiority complexes they may have. Your responses tell much more about yourselves than the OP.

Yeah, yeah, Kotaku, but scroll to number 9 on that list: it's GTA V. I'm actually quite surprised at this--as a fan of Japanese games myself this is not the kind of thing I expected. But it's interesting.

Just thought this would be a nice little bit of trivia. Didn't see a previous thread about it.

Psst, don't tell anyone, but games usually get sold in other countries too so people from other countries gets hyped too. usa is not the only country.

How many Japanese games are you hyped about?

I know you weren't asking me but I know I'm excited for the new Final Fantasy XIII Lightning Returns that's coming out. I heard the game will have a World Map similar to past games. I just hope we are able to ride in some kind of vehicles around the map.

A long time ago, I was interested in Final Fantasy Versus XIII, mainly because of the aesthetic of the game and its more serious, grounded nature than, say, the normal XIII games (which for some reason have been milked to all hell like Assassins Creed 2's storyline) and the promises of it being a more open-world-y type fantasy game, like the old-school Final Fantasy games back in the day. Well... it's pretty much vapor-ware now. Not cancelled apparently, but there's been no news on it since I don't even know how long. There was no guarantee that it would have lived up to expectations either. But I really liked the ideas behind it, despite not generally being much of a JRPG fan at all.

The Last Guardian also seems interesting, since both Ico and Shadow of the Colossus were good games and it appears to be part of that same sort of... spiritual "franchise", but... that game is basically vaporware, too.

The state of Japanese gaming is nowhere near what it once was. It used to have a huge stranglehold on the videogame market, but no so much anymore. And some of its best series are becoming increasingly Westernized or even completely outsourced to Western developers (like Silent Hill, for instance), usually at a detriment to their quality (like Silent Hill, for instance), which kind of defeats the purpose, as well, while many fully Japanese series have stagnated. It's really a mess.

It's also really no surprise that a lot of people over there want something fresh.

Personally I dislike all the Japanese manga anime stuff. It's getting a bit old. They need to get with the times and start making more realistic facial features. It's like cartoon animations is all they know how to create.
Surely in their Japanese studios they can make graphics that simulate real life.

Even some big Japanese developers are saying it, that they need to get with the times when it comes to games. Look at the JRPG genre and how it barely evolved and/or improved. I agree with those developers. But Japan has their fair share of awesome games too, games like Shenmue all started there and boy was that game ahead of its time when it released. Japanese are good at other things though, sometimes evren much better than the USA. Especially when it comes to certain movies. I'd say Oldboy, but that one's not Japanese. But plenty of anime is awesome by them, great stories and very good.

Indeed they're not fans of open world games.
I heard they liked L.A. Noire though, due to it being somewhat like their visual novels.

It's pretty damn unusual for Japan to get hyped about any Western game.

I would say that. Japan is one of the only East-Asian countries who really follows the games made in the West.

If they're into tax evasion, then they're probably into crime sims.
