Microsoft has decided to create monuments for their Xbox 360 glory, and put them in Sapporo, Nagoya, Osaka, and Fukuoka in Japan. The Monuments are basically 12 foot tall Xbox 360’s, with a 65″ screen showing off various game trailers.
I guess it is okay, as the monuments will be removed a week after the December 10th launch in Japan, but it is a little crazy in my opinion. I don’t know if I would want one of those near my place.
Also, Microsoft Japan has started featuring playable demos of Perfect Dark Zero, Every Party, Fifa ’06, Ridge Racer 6, Wrestle Kingdom, and Tetris The Grandmaster Ace in demo units spread around game shops in the country, but without an RPG title, or a ‘killer-app’, are they doomed to fail?
