Actually If sales figures are anything to go by, it seems they bought RFoM just fine, its just not that 80% of the gamers only play FPS and nothing else...
Question is why did we get reports of total sell outs of Gears and then it does equal numbers as Lost planet and not even close to what BD did.
Obviously because its an american title, its alot more interesting than a japanese title doing well in a Japanese market and also its a Z-rated (18 and over) game so its gonna have limited supply and the retailers have to treat it like porn (hide it and sell it under the counter or something like that). So for it to sell out despite all of this shows that GoW really is a killer title for that region with some decent marketing.
I find this very interesting. So you take a FPS, make it 3rd person, and suddenly the Japanese will play it?
No, take a fps and have a japanese publisher take it on and then it will sell (eg. RFOM). These Japanese like to stick to their own.This post has been edited by incognegro: Jan 25 2007, 11:23 AM
