Halo 2 went in at number 4 in the Degenki top 50 all format game charts today!
So who said that the japanese don’t like FPS?
Strange thing though. There’s obviously enough Xbox users to get the game into the top spot does this mean half of the Xbox users in japan are hardly buying any games for their machines?
The Japanese generally don’t like FPS games. The two games that do relatively well are Medal of Honor (only Pacific Assault, really… and that’s just weird when you think about it) and Halo.
Halo sells due to the hype spillover from the US and frankly, the Xbox don’t get a whole lot of support in terms of software in Japan. So, when a really solid title comes out, all of the Xbox owners buy it.
