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!

@digi_matrix: Nah it's not even that.. I frequently go back to my versus habit. I'm pretty addicted to competition. Or I get distracted by another game in my backlog. ADD. (36 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: dude, the new games aren't going anywhere. You're not a panel judge who has to play games before some awards festival. Take your time with the backlog, FUCK NEW GAMES BRO! (39 minutes ago)
I knew this was coming.. complicates my decision making: [url] (44 minutes ago)
I keep trying to attack my backlog but then I get distracted by something shiny. (47 minutes ago)
I haven't been playing much. But I'm probably going to grab Trials Fusion tonight, and maybe pick up Skullgirls, which I already own, just because it's on sale and there will be an influx (48 minutes ago)
Yeah.. if only we had gems like Warframe to sink countless hours into when there's nothing else to play :D (49 minutes ago)
