Microsoft to offer movies and anime for Xbox 360 in Japan

Microsoft will offer movies and anime for paid download through the Xbox 360 starting in 2009, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun reports in its Thursday morning edition. Different from the American market, copyright issues have delayed Microsoft's attempts at offering media downloads in Japan.

the xbox360 has blown away the PS3 in the amount of JRPG titles but still it has crappy sales.

I can only imagine when WKC and that ff13 demo drop in Japan.

more depressing SONY in NA, their mario killer FLOP in sales

Are you serious? Stuff like that (as well as most of your other comments) belong in the open zone.

You can prefer the 360 and not be a total fanboy you know. You should try it some time. A little maturity never hurt anyone.

Where did it say HD? And it's probably 720p anyway ;D

Kuest3698d ago

I meant to say trial, not trail.

I missed a golden opportunity.

Actually, the PS3 has managed to outsell the Xbox360 for more than a couple of months in NA, something that the xbox360 is far from achieving this year or ever. OWned by numbers. As usual.

thebudgetgamer, your first comment was uncalled for and dumb.

Xi3698d ago (Edited 3698d ago )

I completely agree.

My post was off topic and not neccessary.

thebudgetgamer3698d ago (Edited 3698d ago )

its about microsoft offering their consuners an alternative to netflix thet they cant get


and whats dumb is you bringing up wkc and ff13 in a thread that has nothing to do with that

GiantEnemyCrab3698d ago (Edited 3698d ago )

I thought I was in the Open Zone until I saw the header. You all need to take it to the Open Zone.

Spike47: Speaking of uncalled for and stupid I think that sums of all your posts in this thread. This article is talking about bringing some new services to Japan and what do you bring out of your troll toolbox.

What was the purpose of that completely off-topic comment? You took the conversation right to the toilet from your first post. Then you have the nerve to call someone else out for being off topic and stupid.

Spike473698d ago

think MS is doing this, to gain sales in Japan. All th efforts on gaining JRPGS and this anime stuff is all part of trying to increase the sales of the Xbox360 in japan. So technically it is not off topic. I mentioned the PS3 only because it is MS' competiitor.

thebudgetgamer3698d ago (Edited 3698d ago )

wow that sure is mature of ya
i guess the gamer zone truly mean nothing now a days
and i bet youre real proud like yea i showed them
yea tthat you are an angry troll and i bet if someone posted an article about sony realesing something similar and the first post was how bad little big planet is doing in sales youd be pissed

What's getting me is all the hype from WKC when 360 has a much bigger better looking title StarOcean on the way. I just have a feeling WKC won't be that big compared to SO and think this could end up being another LBP story. Plus pretty much everybody that can afford a PS3 has one and with the 360's cheaper price tag I can see the Japanese finally picking it up.
