Become A Gaming Legend

If you ever thought Xbox 360 Achievements are meaningless, then let me enlighten you to some real achievements. Forget about the trivial ones you get for finishing the tutorial or braining away twenty enemies with head shots; they are just Achievements for underskilled peasants. I am talking about some real hard Achievements here, ones that can be truly classed as Achievements. These bad boys will put hairs on your chest, and bagging any one of these will earn a whole heap of bragging rights, including elevating your status to be legitimately called a Gaming Legend.

Square Enix Developer Confident in Xbox 360's Growth in Japan

Microsoft got off to a shaky start in Japan with the original Xbox, but have begun to make great strides in establishing itself with the Xbox 360. And while it may have a way to go yet, there is confidence that it will continue to grow in the Japanese gaming market, including the confidence of Square Enix's Shinji Hashimoto:We expect the Xbox 360 to increase its Japanese market presence even more in the coming months. There is a growing interest in Xbox 360 among Japanese users, due to the release of familiar titles, the increasing appeal of overseas titles, and the excellent reputation of the Xbox 360's network services. -- Shinji Hashimoto, to Edge OnlineHowever, as is clear by their choice to decline bringing Final Fantasy XIII to the Xbox 360 in Japan, they are not putting all of their eggs into one basket:Square Enix develops its titles for users all around the world. We would not make decisions regarding hardware based solely on the Japanese user base. [Star Ocean 4, Last Remnant and Infinite Undiscovery] were developed with the global market in mind, so by releasing them on the Xbox 360, which enjoys a high market share in the United States and Europe, we are hoping to gain more recognition from this large user base. -- Shinji Hashimoto, to Edge OnlineAs the article notes, though, Microsoft will probably not be left wanting for a challenge in further establishing themselves in Japan, as there is still a limited interest in Western games, and not many consumers are exploring 360 titles beyond those which initially spurred their decision to purchase the unit.

The Games That Don't Install Well on NXE, and How Much Room It Takes for Those That Do

The Games That Don't Install Well on NXE, and How Much Room It Takes for Those That Do

One of the most hyped features (somewhere after Netflix and Avatars) of the New Xbox Experience is the ability to install games to the Xbox 360's hard drive. However, as Halo 3 has taught us, it's not quite a perfect procedure. In fact, it would seem that there is a small number of titles which don't really see any improvement when installed, thanks to the way the developers designed them. According to Destructoid, these titles are Big Bumpin', College Hoops 2k7, Pocket Bike Racers, Sneak King, Crackdown, Dead or Alive Xtreme 2, and Quake II from the Quake IV Bonus Disc (according to NeoGAF). Or, to put it in a different perspective, it's the three Burger King promo games, an out-of-date basketball game, a game most people bought just to get into the Halo 3 beta, and a game most people probably don't want anyone else knowing they own, anyway. Takes a bit of the sting out of it, I figure. So now we know which ones don't work. But of those that do work, how much space will they take up? This is a question that's no doubt on the minds of many... or at least, however many bought a 360 with a 20GB hard drive. Fortunately, Sean has compiled a list over at NeoGAF which answers that very question, along with a few notes here and there about the reduction in load times. However, he notes "I can't possibly verify all of these sizes/notes, just going off of what people tell me. If there's an error please correct it and be nice about it." For your Kombo Konvenience, the list is posted right after the kut... er, cut. Whew, that was close. Read More

Xbox 360 Outsells PS3 for Second Week Running; Sony Blames Software

Did we say a week? Make that two weeks, as Japan is on its way to fast becoming a place where miracles can happen:According to the latest Famitsu tracking data, Microsoft's often frowned upon Xbox 360 console (in the land of the rising sun), has managed to outsell Sony's flagship PlayStation 3 (Xbox 360 14k, PS3 8200k), for the second time in consecutive weeks. Can Microsoft strike whilst the iron's hot and make it three strikes in a row? Who knows, but Microsoft's decision to invest heavily in the JRPG sector has definately helped the consoles image somewhat with Japanese gamers. The recent release of RPG titles, Tales of Vesperia and Infinite Undiscovery are testamnet to this with impressive software sales, and have enabled Microsoft some new bragging rights that the majority of the gaming industry never expected. -- XboxkingsIndeed, it seems that Microsoft is winding up with more of the games that Japanese gamers want to play. As Sony Worldwide Studios boss Shuhei Yoshida said at Games Convention '08:It's mostly a software thing. Price is important, but relative to the the value consumers perceive. There are lots of consumers, game fans in Japan, that are waiting to spend their money. What's happening is that lack of support from the Japanese publishers - not necessarily from intentions but from development capabilities. -- videogaming247Thinking about it, what are PS3's biggest titles? We have Metal Gear Solid 4, admittedly developed in Japan but seemingly with as much or more of an American gamer in mind; Grand Theft Auto IV from Rockstar, LittleBigPlanet by the British Media Molecule, Ratchet & Clank Future by Insomniac... most of these titles don't exactly scream "Japan" to me.

Microsoft Touts Xbox 360 as 'Japan's Best Option'

Microsoft's Japanese Xbox boss (yes, they have one. I'm as surprised as anybody) Takashi Sensui recently boasted his company's product as being the "best option" for Japanese consumers, even though sales over there are... well, let's just say it still comes as a surprise whenever "Xbox sales" and "Japan" come up in the same sentence without a negative included. So, where does their hope lie? In RPGs, of course!"We know that to succeed in the Japanese market, we must provide major RPG franchises for Xbox 360... The recent launch of Tales of Vesperia was a true catalyst for console sales, and in order to bring more gamers from a broader segment of consumers to the Xbox 360, we need to make the strengthening of our RPG lineup a priority.See what else he had to say on building up their business after the cut.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope an Xbox Exclusive?

With elusive answering from the developers on the matter, there was hope that Star Ocean: The Last Hope would only be a timed exclusive for the Xbox 360 before heading over to the PS3 feeding grounds. But now, it seems that the instruction book from Infinite Undiscovery may have put a nail in the coffin of that idea, as you can see above. See, kids? By reading the instruction manual, you can find all sorts of weird, crazy, cool stuff. Read More
