Japanese-developed games have been embraced across the world for their unique design, eclectic characters, film-quality production values and fantastic gameplay. With Xbox 360 providing next-generation muscle, these fascinating worlds and characters explode into the high-definition era. Today's breathtaking game demonstrations proved to the world, with staggering results, what happens when Japan's unique visionaries develop for the most powerful next-generation system.

"The next generation is here, and Microsoft is ready to deliver," said Shigeru Yokoyama, Contents and Technology Company president of Namco. "With the blend of powerful hardware, software and services, Xbox 360 allows us to create gaming experiences more satisfying, more lifelike and more interactive then ever before. The possibilities of some of our most exciting franchises and games, such as 'Ridge Racer' and 'Frame City Killer,' are limitless on Xbox 360."

"Bandai is developing three exclusive games for Xbox 360, one of which is 'Mobile Suit Gundam,' a fully networked game that utilizes the Xbox Live infrastructure. With a combination of HD quality and Xbox Live, gamers will be able to experience a totally new Gundam world," said Shin Unozawa, president, Video Game Company, Bandai Co. Ltd.

"With Xbox 360, we are working with the most advanced gaming technology in the world to create the ultimate gaming experience," said Isamu Fukada, director of Tecmo. "Microsoft's next-generation platform demonstrates a sincere commitment to delivering great games to the Japanese market."

"Microsoft has assembled an impressive lineup of Japanese game developers and seems committed to producing games that appeal to this market," said Michihiro Ishizuka, corporate officer, president, Konami. "We are excited about the possibilities provided by Xbox 360's powerful hardware and services, and look forward to creating dynamic new worlds for gamers to explore."

Today's demonstrations also showcased the innovative strides being taken to advance the online gameplay experience through Microsoft's industry-leading online games service, Xbox Live. Xbox Live has a worldwide membership exceeding 2 million, having doubled its dynamic community in just one year the equivalent to adding one Xbox Live member every 30 seconds. With Xbox 360, gamers can expect incredible new experiences in the next generation of Xbox Live with features such as multiple levels of service (free Xbox Live Silver membership to premium Gold membership), Gamercards, Gamerzones, an integrated message center and Xbox Live Marketplace, a one-stop shop for downloadable content, including free and premium maps, levels, demos, casual games, trailers, and other game-enhancing content.

Xbox 360 is on track to launch in three regions this Christmas holiday: Japan, Europe and North America. This three-region launch will be a first in video game history.
