Xbox 360: On japanese TV

Xbox 360: On japanese TV

The TV channel Nippon TV, one of the biggest in Japan, was at the Zero Hour Xbox 360 launch event a few hours ago and already broadcasted this one minute long feature. It's all in japanese of course (except Peter Moore), but it's still a good way to see for ourselves what this event was about, and certainly a good thing to see that the japanese mainsteam press is talking a bit about Xbox 360.

The line-up of software in Japan has just got worse...The RPG (eM)-eNCHANT arM- has slipped until Jan 2006, this is gonna a pretty big lose to M$. Now the xbox 360 has only got 6 games for launch this is terrible and the list of backwards-compatible games is just 12, this isn't looking to good for m$ in Japan.

That very short click of NBA looked amazingly realistic!!! Shame I'll probably hate the game.

Haha... just remember the mighty ps2 lineup...Ridge racer (lol), Tekken tag (rofl) and the 3d Street fighter (lmao). Did i forgot something? Oh yeah, that uber fireworks simulator and the Mahjong.
Commented on 2005-11-22 15:24:46
still it's a really poor games line-up no matter what U say, and the backwards compatibitiy is a joke 12 games! Well your not japanese so you can't really comment on the fireworks game , Mahjong or any other games for that matter, these titles are the kind of titles Japanese gamers like to play!
Commented on 2005-11-22 15:31:10
stupid question : what is the current line-up for the Japanese launch?

If that matters i lived in Nakano (Tokyo) with my girlfriend for almost 10 years and nobody among my friends liked those games. (but i admit those games have many fans there)
I think what define a lineup from good or bad is the comparison with other lineups. And the 360's looks better than the ps2's to my eyes. But again, this is just my opinion.

*9 days and some hrs. left to go*

BlimBlim, can you tell me how many Xbox360's the UK is going to get?
I preordered mine through Dixon, and asked if I would get it on launch.
The sales lady at Dixon said "Yes" (since I preordered).

She also said that I don't have to arrive early.
However, I'll make sure I'm 4 hours early, just in case.

Thanks Blim

there! lol
were i live theres to main shops to get my xbox 360 argos 1 minute away theres dixon but ill be at dixon. hopefully ill get mine on launch day because i pre order mine. so if all of use havent pre order bad luck mates yous got to wait about 3 weeks before you get your hands on it. the weather man say snow for the coming weeks so it will be a long wait in line with snow falling in your face. good luck to me and others on 2,Dec,2005.

About the game


What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks yeah I haven't enjoyed it much at all tbh (24 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX If people were looking for a fresh experience it wouldn't be TitanFall 2. That's their whole problem. I don't think TitanFall 2 would have been "huge" in the Spring. (41 minutes ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I still don't get why people have a problem with cosmetic loot boxes. (43 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts released alongside BF and CoD games. Though even then I would still save it for a year without a new BF, so it would only go against CoD. (54 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts They forgot TF1 didn't make a big splash after launch, but if TF2 was released like I said, it would most likely been a huge hit and then the franchise would have been known enough for a TF3 to be (55 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts had already played BF1 and CoD:IW/MW for hundreds of hours and were looking for a new fresh experience. Really, really horrible decision to launch it alongside BF1 and CoD, plus in the busiest period. (57 minutes ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts It might have to do with that momentum I mentioned earlier. When I think of TF2, I can't even imagine how sussceful it would be if launched in March, April or May. Would also get all the players who (58 minutes ago)
