Lol yep, the biggest fighter around had to be funded. Call a spade a spade, it's a money hat. 

And there is no shock that Japanese games aren't coming to the xbox one. doesn't mean anything other than the fact that xbox just doesn't sell in Japan. 


Yep, it did. It's amazing how people can just ignore facts that Capcom was in financial trouble and that Ono himself stated that they didn't have the funds to start development on the next Street Fighter game. The earliest we would have gotten SFV without Sony was 2018. But yeah, if it helps you, ignore facts buddy. No see, Tomb Raider is a straight out money hat, it was announced last year at E3 2014, but it wasn't announced exclusive until 2 months later at Gamescom.

Also I'm not sure why people are expecting Japanese games for Xbox One, the only reason the 360 got them was because Microsoft went around handing out bags of money too developers and actually had a decent install base, but 60k or whatever it is at currently, is not enough for Japanese game developers.


If thats the case they better put as less DLC as possible

I have to say that a lot of these games are either unfamiliar with me or niche Japanese titles which make sense to not release on the One. So yeah, I don't believe the situation is quite as dire as you make it out to be.

As far as I'm concerned the One has an incredibly strong and versatile lineup, and one which I personally enjoy greatly. Sure there may be the odd small title not present, but that doesn't mean it has anything but a great lineup.



 

Here lies the dearly departed Nintendomination Thread.

I agree that MS should try to entice more japanese developers to port their games to the xbox one. It would make the xbox one's library more diverse and build a better relationship with the japanese in general. That will probably lead to better sales in japan and around the world with future consoles. People other than japanese play japanese games. 

It would make a difference on here at the very least. If the majority of the world's gamers have similar opinions on it.....

A site full of Nintendo fans and about half of the Sony fans are going to pick Japanese. If you want the opinions of the world's gamers just look at the sales.

Most of these sales are the same games every yea = AC, GTA, Fifa, Cod



Its not only japanese devolopers but a lot of small european devolopers are skipping the X1 too. Tropico 5 for example is only avaible for PS4 and Xbox 360. No X1 version because its not popular in europe and the ps3 is too hard to devolope for a PC company.

1. GTA is not every year.


2. And? Are you telling me that there aren't Japanese games that get hyped up every year that are the same thing? How exactly does that rule out Western games being more popular?

Tropico/Magicka/Risen/Arcania are not Japanese games in fact most of those were games that were exclusive on X360. It is just if you like RPG's (JRPG and WRPG) you have to buy an PS4 because those look to be skipping Xone.

Gotta love double standards.

OT: niche Japanese games that probably sell something like 200k worldwide outside Japan.

More like, gotta love misinformation. Capcom has not beeng doing well financially in quite a while and their financial troubles are very much public. There were even reports about the company facing a hostile takeover.

But yeah, sure, let's call it double standards and ignore the facts, because Sony.

its really funny how missinformed some people are, that or they are trying to forget the past... the news about Capcoms Financial troubles were very public and it was a topic debated by a lot of people just to post some videos about the topic:

 

 

Also just to be clear, SFV would have happened eventually but it would have taken years for Capcom to get the money to get the game going, so Sony partnering with them made the production of the game possible now, instead of waiting till 2018 for the announcement of SFV.

Also here is an article that proves that Capcom wanted to make SFV but didnt had the money to make it at the time (2013 when they were having financial problems): http://www.usgamer.net/articles/street-fighter-producer-doesnt-want-series-to-end-with-iv

No but they are niche. Once again, the sales say it all. These are not popular games excluding a street fighter port.



We also know that SE was not happy with TR sales and MS financial help convinced to make a new one =p. Moneyhatting/Funding in the end is the same only fanboys love to find a big difference between the two and fight about it.

You are totally right they are niche...And?  You consider having the same games + exclusive niches does not mean a thing?
