    Xbox 360 launched today in Japan

    Some photos and a writeup (in Japanese) here. Of interest to me was this one:

    http://www.watch.impress.co.jp/game/...10/akiba07.jpg

    A copy of the beta version was included for free with every console sold. I don't think Square has announced any info about a North American 360 beta yet. I'm somewhat curious as to exactly how Square managed to integrate the PlayOnline platform with Xbox Live, since they both serve largely the same purpose.

    Anyone know of anybody who has picked one of these up?

    I don't care cause the box only says Zilart and Promathia on it. ;x Doesn't say anything about the new expansion.

    Part of the reason Microsoft made the 360 sleeker than the xbox and white was to try and get more JP users interested since the last console, the xbox, was totally nasty to them especially. So now I am guessing giving out FFXI to them is basically just incentive for them to buy it. Better graphically than a Ps2, which most JP use.
