It's Sakaguchi - Final Fantasy golden boy. I don't know about other genres, but if theres one genre japanese gaming magazines know, it's the rpg genre. This looks good.

is going to drive 360 sales over there and maybe convince the Japanese that they don't have a monopoly on good games anymore. If the 360 is going to catch on, though, they need to follow this one up with something equally good or better. That was one of the strengths of the Japanese RPG scene. You would buy an awesome new release and by the time you were done with that one, there was always another one, equally good, on the shelves for you to buy.

Ok i STILL think Microsoft has failed this gen with the Japanese market.
But Microsoft must learn from this that you need to release a console with Japanese tailored games and not western.

You may be right. But this does not mean it will not prepare the ground for the next xbox that comes arround the same way this original xbox did for the 360 in US and Europe. Sony can only take so much punishment. Don't forget most 360 fans used to be Sony/nintendo fans; so no matter what Sony/Nintendo is losing.

I agree 100% yet Sony seems to be selling okay despite its western launch lineup so I would say brand loyalty plays a big part also.

I think that MS needs to excel in, not just deliver, japanese content in order to capture a chunk of japan.
