Halo 3 sparks Xbox 360 interest in Japan


According to the Famitsu reader’s most wanted next generation games list Halo 3 jumped to the number ten spot. At E3 Microsoft only revealed a teaser trailer of the game, but the short segment with Master Chief made a huge impression on Japanese gamers. Halo 3 is the only Xbox 360 and North American developed game on the top ten list. The top three games Famitsu’s readers are interested in are the Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess, Final Fantasy XIII and Metal Gear Solid 4. Microsoft knows the power of the Halo brand, but they’re probably a little surprised that Halo 3 made the list while the 360 games developed specifically for Japan, Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey were not where to be found.
