I remember reading an article about Gears of War doing well in Japan. Looks like the Japanese are finally taking notice of the console.

I think it's success has a lot to do with MS/Epic taking the time to do a proper localization of the game for them with Japanese subtitles and voiceovers.
 
The Japanese apparently are big fans of having stuff in their own language(and who doesn't).
Looking forward to PSP Trophy support

Yeah I've watched a clip from it and although I couldn't understand what they said, the voices fit them well... Same thing for French, the voices fit them well as well...

I think it's more like this... Out of the few people who did buy a 360 over there 99.9% of them bought this game. Or something like that.

That is surprising. They generally tend to avoid Amercianized Shooters. Good news for Epic though.
