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!
probably go with ign for the pre-show since they seem to have peter "i'm a compulsive liar" molyneux. which will be...interesting. (3 minutes ago)

@Moonwalker: lol, as if that's the design. i don't think it'll have any curves to it at all. (12 minutes ago)
either way, i'm expecting light shows at some point next gen. Whilst my NES still refuses to die (14 minutes ago)
doesnt look like theres any lights to that. Maybe my ps4 pad will light up yellow instead (15 minutes ago)
they definately have a thing for the george foreman grill dont they. I'm more interested in what colour the light of death will be this time round. And will i have red rings dancing around on walls? (17 minutes ago)
