Yukio Futatsugi Speaks

For the last few years, Futatsugi has held the role of Design Manager at Microsoft Game Studios Japan, overseeing the development of games like Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey and 99 Nights. But his recent stay at Microsoft has kept him out of the actual development process, a process he dearly misses, and by the time you read this interview, he will have left Microsoft Game Studios entirely to dive back into the world of game development.

That's good news for gamers. But before Futatsugi left MSG, 1up.com took him out for drinks and yakiniku to discuss his plans for the future, his time at Microsoft, why he's leaving Microsoft, modern gaming trends, and so much more.

The story is too old to be commented.

X360 don't sell in Japan because people there are wise enough not to buy a defective/unfinished products. They got best technology from Eletronics to cars. You rarely see Japanese cars break down unlike American cars. My Japanese conosles still work till this day since launch. This Also includes a walkman I bought from Japan at the 1st of them. Same with a Digital camera which I got from japan when they were born. They all still work.

Japanese do NOT want defective products that includes everything not X360 only.

Would you buy a car without a steering? Please wait for next version
Would you buy a hospital machine high failure rate? Please await next patch while people DIE
Would you buy a TV that displays only half screen? please await next model

This goes also for Windows and all other software released with bugs. People are allowing unfinished products on market. Would you want to buy a mobile and 3/4s of your phone book in SIM Card don't work with it? (Eg Vista with games and programs)

"Would you buy a car without a steering? Please wait for next version"
which is why i have not bought a ps3 since there are no games. At this rate I'll have to settle for the PS4

"Would you buy a hospital machine high failure rate? Please await next patch while people DIE"
Again the ps3 everytime theres a new update all it does is try to catch up to 360 as well as every update seems to fudge up either games or the system itself look at warhawk as an example
"Would you buy a TV that displays only half screen? please await next model "
Which is why i have not bought a PS3 everything they promised, only half of what they said is true.

If Microsoft made Cars, Planes, Hopsital machines the death rate in the world would rise by 237983425234%* (*Random number, its just a very high number)

People are just allowing unfinished products on markets which should not. Now let me sell you a car. It doesn't turn left we didn't make it yet its bugged please wait for next update!

The Car would be called Buggy

Lol. Only Japanese hardcore gamers by 360s? Doubt it. Those hardcore gamers probably play PC games/ dating sims. The Japanese that buy the 360s are probably the most western Japanese out there.
