Microsoft is trying to prove once again that they are very serious about Japan, and this time they had quite a few interesting announcements about upcoming Xbox 360 games. Many thanks to Jonnyram for his realtime reporting from the press conference.
First of all, a lot of japanese publishers are signed up for Xbox Live Arcade content: Konami, Hudson, Namco and SNK are listed. Pacman and Galaga are almost ready.
Namco then announced the future release of Culdcept Saga for Xbox 360, playable online. Imagine a strange mix between a board game and a RPG.
Sakaguchi then announced that Blue Dragon would be released at the end of the year in Japan. Lost Odyssey will have a playable demo in Autumn, and be fully released in 2007. Cry On will be released much later.
Square-Enix then announced Project Sylph, a shooter they will publish, developed by Game Arts. 360 Exclusive.
Finally Microsoft announced they would be publishing another big RPG, this time developed by Tri Ace.
A Lot of new trailers and videos were shown, but it looks like people were not allowed to film. Wait & See!
I hope this bodes well for Just Cause 3 too and Battlefront. But the latter is a whole different story. (34 minutes ago)
DF analysis on Mad Max is in, 1080p/30fps on both consoles and X1 actually has a slightly better framerate overall. I am impressed. Look at the launch of X1 with all the problems, and how it is now. (35 minutes ago)
@droezelke: Just don't want to miss out on the story though, hence why I am starting with the first. I won't let it turn me off :) (37 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: I think TW2 is a better start to be honest. (59 minutes ago)
@alimokrane: Oh, starting at the beginning. The first one is not representative of the next 2. Different gameplay mechanics. (1 Hour ago)
