This person got a very good idea. Despite of the bad reviews this game got, it actually sold pretty well in Japan and it's pretty popular believe it or not. I think MS should really publish the sequel and give the developer the amount of money to make it look more like a modern game instead of a low-budget title. This would boost sales in Japan if MS wants more sales in that country.

I think Microsoft has just about given up on Japan, cause in reality, they're never going to beat Sony or Nintendo in Japan.

I don't think they're gonna give up on Japan. They got a somewhat good response at the Tokyo Game Show last year. Why would they give up if it would mean for money for them?

Anyway, I've always wanted to try Bulletwitch. I know it got bad reviews but something about the game seems sort of charming. It's like those Army Men games that I used to play on the PS1. They weren't well received but the cutscenes were hilarious and kind reminded me of the Small Soldiers movie.

Because the Japanese gaming audience doesn't play games like we do. They don't play Halo, Gears of War, Uncharted, Mass Effect. They have their own genre of games which they enjoy and there really isn't any incentive for Microsoft to make those games because all their developers are Western and the install base of the 360 there is too small relative to the PS3 and DS for them to make any sort of profit.

Even though Microsoft is not doing well in Japan and they would probably not do this, they should buy CAVE. Right now, they only port their games to the 360 (With a few exceptions). Sony or Nintendo may be leading in Japan but Microsoft is leading in the shmup section.

Bullet Witch wouldn't get them far. They need exclusives that are high quality and aimed towards a Japanese Audience. They should try getting some SMT exclusives from Atlus. Or buy out the whole company...then they'd be set in Japan forever. Although that's pretty unlikely.

Try to order it on Amazon for cheap prices. You can read my review and see how I liked the game. It's actually one of my fav 360 games.

Yeah Bungie even said it themselves when they went out there.
