Wow…I kinda want them all too
notice no xbox games….:/
xD thats cuz the Xbox Sucks. It’s literally just a cheap computer in a plastic case, Bill Gates only decided to make it, because he didn’t have enough Money.
Not everyone can afford a 1000$ gaming PC. Try again when someone doesn’t have the urge to slap you upside down.
My friend has had 2 xBox’s break down, the last more recently.
My brother’s xbox had a hard drive failure.
Not everyone can afford to keep buying cheap ass xBoxes.
PS: Microsoft fixed One of them with used, dusty parts, which broke again right outside of warranty.
Actually it’s because the Xbox is american, and they don’t care for it in Japan. (Cool how it’s not like that here in america…)
Xbox isn’t big in Japan
Basically, the only XBox exclusive/1st party game is in the Kinect and we all know how awesome the Kinect is (sarcasm).
thats cuz xbox has no crazy stupid ass anime shit on it
In Japan there actually was, but not even that was enough to sway the masses. And most of these titles were never released outside of Japan for the 360. This includes retail as well as digital. Mostly anime/panty-themed bullet-hell, idol maker & kissing games though. I mean, there’s a REASON they didn’t release this stuff outside of Japan.
The Xbox is not big in Japan, Microsoft Discounted the 360 in Japan last year because of poor sales, It makes me wonder if the 720 will release in Japan at all.
Honestly i want to want Dragon Quest X but nothing i know so far impresses me.
First! Finally! F all of you guys!
Hehehe, you failed :d
better luck next time! n_n
I think he was being sarcastic… then again, who knows what to expect from such a username… could be a non-troll making fun of trolls! Or a troll who wants us to think he/she’s a non-troll making fun of trolls! Or… *goes off forever*
LOOOOOLLLL You failed so hard…it’s Funny XD
this was meant to the guy above me… :x Looks like i failed too :p
That’s Karma for you. Justice.
Animal Crossing, y u no here already ?
Well of course it’s a Wii game at number one, it’s Dragon frickin Quest. That game series sells like hotcakes over there.
No Luigi’s Mansion 2? :(
That was surprising. Luigi’s Mansion 2 was my most anticipated 3DS game of 2012 (next to Kid Icarus).
No Kid Icarus on that list make Terminal something, something….
Animal crossing is at number 6! Sweeeeet!
Monster Hunter 4
And Kingdom Hearts are my most anticipated.
What the Fuck is Animal Crossing, i’ve never heard of it
You should try it, it’s prob my most played game ever…
A Life Sim, which IMO is easier and more relaxing to play then Sims.
You move into a town filled with animal inhabitents and just live life there.
(more fun than I can be bothered to describe)
I don’t like that picture, it creeps me out
Notice how Sora is looking in two directions at once.
i know, its disturbing…
Dragon’s Dogma is higher than Kingdom Hearts? Damn, I guess Japan is a pretty random place. I was interested in Dragon’s Dogma, but the latest story trailer just killed it for me.
They only care about it because of Resident Evil 6.
Oh yeah, I heard that they might included the demo with that game. I guess it’s going to be another case like with Bulletstorm on the 360 that included the demo for Gears 3.
I’m looking forward to what Kingdom Hearts 3D has in store for me.
I want all the Nintendo games on there, except for New Love Plus (I know nothing about it)
I guess if I had a PS3 I’d be interested in Dragon’s Dogma and Shining Blade(maybe).
No Paper Mario or Kid Icarus I see. :(
Animal Crossing? I will never understand the appeal of that series. I tried the GCN game out once. Perhaps the most boring game I’ve ever played.
Animal Crossing is popular because it’s relaxing. The music, the graphics, the laid back gameplay is just a great time waster.
4 3DS games in the top 10 -> I love that.
1 Vita game in the top 30 -> I love that.
No Luigi’s Mansion 2 -> -_____________-
1 vita game in the top 10. Right now there aren’t many amazing japanese games announced.
Kingdom Hearts is such a terrible series.
As much as I’m looking forward to Kingdom Hearts 3D, that picture makes me hope they never make a live-action movie of it. Makes me cringe thinking about it.
I could have sworn I heard animal crossing was coming out in march but now it doesnt sound like it and that makes me sad cuz I am so fricken excited for that game l:
Totally agree with their number 1 choice. I would have placed Kingdom Hearts higher and would have had Paper Mario and Kid Icarus on the list too however. It’s funny how much my interests resemble the majority of Japanese people. I need to live there.
