    1. ||They won’t be for long, our extermination squads are hunting down the last Xbots to cleanse our Homeworld from these filth…||

  1. This trash talk is what makes gaming communities such a toxic place. There’s no call for any of it.

      1. I’m not offended(my name has the word “Turd” in it for crying out loud); just bummed out that so many places are filled with dumbasses needlessly being dumbasses. I’m not saying we should all skip down the sidewalk holding hands, just maybe not be dicks. I don’t care much for the XBone myself, but who has the time and energy to go out of their way and be a dick about it? And it’s not like this is some new thing. Xbox selling poorly in Japan is nothing novel. It’s old hat, my friend.

            1. I’m trapped in a research facility currently and this is one of the very few sites I have access to, although it’s quite broken, it looks like it was made using yahoo builder in 1998 with lot’s of broken jpegs. I’m pretty sure it’s all part of the experiment. So yes, HERE I AM.

          1. And what makes you think you were the focus of my bummedness?

            Bummed-outness?

            My state of being bummed.

    1. I rather talk about what I like in gaming than what I don’t like so I agree with you. Now. Japan seems to like a variety of their games. Take a months worth of Media Create and compare it to NPD and UK chart and their is a big difference.

  2. “eight of the top ten games are on Nintendo platforms which once again bodes well for the upcoming Nintendo NX platform in the country.”

    Not really. It means Minecraft and Mario are popular, and the 3DS will continue to do well – and success in the handheld market isn’t the same as success in the console market.
