Microsoft to Double Xbox 360 Titles in Japan

Tokyo, Dec 12, 2007 (Jiji Press) - Microsoft Corp.'s Japan unit aims to double the number of game titles for the Xbox 360 console in Japan to 500 by the end of 2008, a senior official said in a recent interview with Jiji Press.

New titles may include a sequel to the blockbuster Blue Dragon, said Takashi Sensui, executive officer and chief of the home and entertainment division of Tokyo-based Microsoft Co.

The Xbox 360 has been struggling in Japan as cumulative sales have totaled about 500,000 units since it was released in December 2005. But Senui said the console can win over hard-core gamers and that reaching one million units in sales is not far.
