Bring back Japanese voiceover in all the games MS publishes

We Japanese gamers had been enjoying Xbox 360 games for years, Halo, Gears of War, Alan Wake and so on... All of them are from the Western culture which is not familiar with us but the familiar language voiceover and the significant arts of voice actors made us feel familiar with these games and love the exciting stories.
Now MS seem to have no Japanese voiceover on Xbox One games such as Quantum Break, Gears of War 4, Forza Horizon 3, Halo Wars 2 and they seem to keep this policy. That spoils us to enjoy the game stories and atomosphere. Though you make True 4K graphics games, we just stare the bottom center of the screen to read the subtitles and catch up the stories! And while controlling aiming or characters, I give up cathcing up what they are saying. For worse, notifications pop up and cover the subtitles... How dare we enjoy the game?
And also from the e-sports aspects, it is not fair to use the language someone doesn't understand.

We don't want to much more thing, but just want to get back what we had in Xbox 360 era.

    どうせ日本語で書き込んでも無視してくるだろうが、敢えて書き込んどく。
    マイクロソフト本社とインディ系のゲームは、「全部」きっちりローカライズして「日本で」出せ!
    こちとら洋ゲーがやりたくてPCは嫌だからXBOX ONE買ってんのに、その洋ゲーが出ないんじゃ話にならんわ!Cities:SkylineとかState of Decay、Shadow WarriorとARKを日本語でやりたいんですけど、いつになったらこれらのゲームが「日本」で発売するんですか?PUBGをE3で大々的に発表してたけど、日本で発売するんか?
    フィルは日本を諦めろないと言ったんだから、責任はきっちり取れ。そして日本マイクロソフトも社長の言葉をしっかり心に刻め。日本のゲーマー達は、てめーらマイクロソフトのボンクラ共が本気出すまでXBOX見向きしねーからな。よく考えて商売しろや。

    Not a bad idea and while we're at it Japanese language games in English or at least English subtitles

    Voted for this one. It doesn't affect me directly, but the entire idea that this even needs to be voted on is messed up. Hit up @xboxp3 on twitter as well.

    I agree this post. Japanese Gamers want to play the games with no stless for reading very tiny sub. We want Japanese voiceover to all ms titles. Please!

    I totally agree with this idea. MS titles were once known to have excellent full localization with them. But it is now gone. In some part of "Quantum Break", we must understand spoken English without subtitles to catch up the story. It can be called even "a defective localization".

    I understand that full localization of games with voice over are costly and Japanese Xbox market is so small. But if MS keep their "no voice over" policy, I easily tell that most Japanese gamers would choose PlayStation instead of Xbox. Because Sony titles still have excellent Japanese localization. If MS is really serious with Japanese game market as Mr. Phil Spencer said in GAME Watch's interview, MS titles should bring back full Japanese localization like before.

    I hope MS changes their policy BEFORE "Halo 6". "Gears of War 4" was the first game of a new season and it was barely acceptable without Japanese voiceover. "Halo 6" is not.
