What is considered the “killer-app” in Japan will not make it out for the launch, which will severly hurt Microsoft’s attempt to enter the Asian gaming market with any real power.
The six games still on target for the Japanese launch are Every Party, FIFA 06: Road to FIFA World Cup, Need for Speed Most Wanted, Perfect Dark Zero, Ridge Racer 6, and Tetris: The Grandmaster Ace.
No RPG’s, No good fighting games. Microsoft might as well stay home, or atleast wait until they have a better launch line-up for Japan. Worldwide release structure is looking worse and worse, and here everyone thought that this was going to be the only way to release a console once Microsoft proved how easy it was.
