Mages’ Newly Announced Xbox One Exclusives Cause An Extremely Negative Reaction Among The Japanese

You may not know who Mages is, but they are an extremely prominent and important developer of visual novels, one of the most engaged niche audiences in Japan; indeed, in recent years, visual novels and shoot em ups have found a home on the Xbox 360, and it appears like Mages was looking to continue that trend by releasing three visual novels exclusively to the Xbox One. Except it also seems like the Japanese are having none of that, if DualShockers is to be believed.

The announcement, which was on Nico Nico (Japan’s premier video streaming service, was met with a staggeringly negative reaction- 66.5% of the viewers responded negatively to the news of the games, presumably because of their exclusivity status.

Of course, this does beg the question- unless Japanese companies are being moneyhatted by Microsoft (and there is no way Mages was moneyhatted, since visual novels may be an engaged niche, but a small niche nonetheless), why do they bother making Xbox One exclusive games at all, especially given the country’s historic antipathy to the brand?

    Visual novels only belong on PC. Not like they belong on PS4 either.

    But then Guiseppe is a lying coward shilling constantly for Sony so of course he spins it.

      All that confirms is that the Japanese recognize PC is the master race, derp.

      The real “god gaming race” owns both a good PC and consoles, and they find your lies and ignorance disgraceful.

      Both PS4 and Xbox will have good exclusive games, high end PCs are best for multiplatform games if you have the time, money, and effort to build and maintain one.

      PS4 will have the graphics advantage the entire gen. PS4 hardware and software will outsell Xbox globally the entire gen. PS4 will have more dev support and more 1st party games the entire gen. Sony still has a large number of 1st party studios and they’re all working on PS4 games. PS4 will make a net profit, Sony won’t go bankrupt. I’m constantly right, as usual.

      PC and PS4 are different markets with different pros and cons. PS4 has price/performance and simplicity, PCs have a higher potential performance, but generally more expensive and requires time and knowledge to buy, build, and maintain one.

      PS4 is comparable to a mid range PC at 1.84TF. PS4 has some interesting architecture benefits over traditional split CPU/GPU split memory pool PCs, and other customizations. For $400 you get a lot of price/performance, more than a $400 PC would get you. PS4 is better than most PCs. PS4 will have lots of good exclusives, both console only and PS4 only.

      Xbox/PC fanboys seem to be on a war on people too poor or unwilling/unable to spend time and money buying, building, and maintaining a PC. Mustard race claiming they can afford multi-thousand dollar PCs but too poor to buy a $200-400 console.

      Both PS4 and Xbox will have good exclusive games, high end PCs are best for multiplatform games if you have the time, money, and effort to build and maintain one. Only deranged fanboys keep chewing their own legs off screaming about “PS4 peasants”.

    • XbotsAreCorporateScumbags

      Stupid PC gamers.. thinking they are better than others because they have slightly improved visuals and choose to tinker with settings and headaches. I’ll tell you one thing pal, Those headaches that go with PC gaming are the reasons why I’ve been gaming for 35 years on consoles exclusively. I haven’t even visited the Steam Website once… Not even once. LOL And why should I? The majority of PC exclusives are generic nerdy little treks like WOW and League of Legends? No thanks idiot.
