Xbox/Xbox Games
The BBC's got word on how Microsoft intends to get the Xbox360 into Japan: they hired Hironobu Sakaguchi to make games.

Under an exclusive deal with Microsoft, he has developed two fantasy role-playing games for the 360 of the type that sell well in Japan.

In a game called Blue Dragon, the main characters have a specific shadow such as a dragon or a phoenix.

The shadow is intended to reflect their inner being, providing them with magical powers.

His other title, Lost Odyssey, is the story of a man who has lived for 1,000 years, which Mr Sakaguchi hopes will move players to tears.

The games will spearhead efforts by Microsoft to grab a bigger chunk of the console market in Japan with the 360.
It's a good move, and the titles look exciting.
