Tecmo Koei President Says XBox 360 is Doing Better in Japan

Tecmo Koei President Says XBox 360 is Doing Better in Japan 50°
296w ago - Kenji Matsubara, global President and CEO of Tecmo Koei Holdings, has said that despite a difficult start in Japan, Microsoft is doing better with Xbox 360 than it did with the original console.

To quote: "Xbox 360 as a business is doing better than the old Xbox," he told Kikizo.

"They have a good opportunity for growth, but of course Sony is a Japanese company and Microsoft is known as a business software company, so brand image is one point. But Microsoft is doing well, especially considering how difficult it is these days.

"I think they have good growth potential for the future depending on the titles. We have a close relationship with Microsoft so I hope we can be a part of that."
 

Koei MMORPG Uncharted Waters Online Coming to Japan in 2009

Koei MMORPG Uncharted Waters Online Coming to Japan in 2009 50°
329w ago - Dynasty Warriors and Romance of the Three Kingdoms series developer Koei is bringing their popular MMORPG, Uncharted Waters Online, to the PlayStation 3 in Japan during 2009.

According to Siliconera, the game is based off the Uncharted Waters series of games, the first of which was released on the Super NES in 1992.

This MMO sends players into the ocean, but not as pirates. Taking cues from history, Uncharted Waters is set in the Age of Discovery when Europe explored the seas- picking one of six nationalities, and one of the three basic classes in order to engage in trading, exploration and sea battles.

No information regarding pricing or subscription fees have been released at this time. Sadly, Uncharted Waters Online and its expansion (Cruz del Sur) are currently available only in Asia, so it seems unlikely this PS3 version would make it into the Western market.
