Default Mushihimesama Futari coming to Xbox 360!

http://www.famitsu.com/game/news/1223648_1124.html

This game was mentioned in the "hardest games" thread and well, now many more people will have a chance to try out this "impossible" game…

Its amazing that all these shooters are getting ported to the 360 of all consoles

Why are you amazed? The 360:ps3 marketshare gap has decreased this year. I'm liking this move continuing the early 2009 momentum (360 recently cleared 1m units sold in japan). I'm sure so4 was extremely influential in these statistics, but its a fresh direction for microsoft.

I'm more amazed that niche Japanese games are appearing on the western console rather than their own ie PS3… What it really shows is how much on the outs the PS3 really is…

Yeah, I get what you're saying now. It appears that star ocean 4 altered the japanese market, and ms is willing to spend some $ to continue pushing fwd in the japan. I'd like to see shooters make it to the West bc I think it could be reallly successful. I skipped surprise, and went straight on to excitement.

How much do you think games like Final Fantasy and Gran Turismo will boost the ps3 install base in japan? How much higher can it possibly go? I'm no business expert, but I'd imagine most consumers targeting either of these releases would have bought a ps3 already (for gt5, especially with the prologue)

I think Final Fantasy has been on the decline in recent years…
The bigger RPG franchise, Dragon Quest, has moved back to Nintendo hardware, that alone is a big blow to the PS3. Final Fantasy XIII is also being done on the 360 (in the west right now) and I imagine Square/Enix can easily move it to the J360 to boost sales. I don't believe Gran Turismo is a big enough system seller to boost install base… though GT5 is one game I personally cannot wait for and will give my PS3 a big workout.

All in all, the PS3 is basically going to be set in third place world-wide. I am curious to see what direction Sony goes from here…

Whoah whoah, I don't think FF13 has been confirmed for the 360. Only rumors.
