Japan gets the Xbox One starting September 4

10:00 PM on 04.22.2014 // Hamza CTZ Aziz

Tens of people are excited!

Microsoft has finally revealed that the Xbox One will be launching in Japan on September 4. No pricing has been announced yet though. A list of all the games and companies that will be backing Microsoft's latest console was also shared at least.

It's pretty surprising that Japan will be getting the new console so late in the year. The PlayStation 4 will have a giant foothold in Japan long before September comes around. Then again, the Xbox brand isn't that strong over in Japan so it wouldn't have helped them to launch last year like they did in other parts of the world in any case.

Just a reminder that you have until the 30th to get your Bloggers Wanted post, "Thankful it's over" in. I'm either going to tell you how I ruined my best online gaming experience or rip Twilight Princess a new one. Maybe both.

Huh. I just found out the developers of Hatred (remember that controversy?) region-locked their game to prevent it from being accessed by Australians. Destructive Creations are more censor-happy than Nintendo, it seems. Where's the outrage?
Oh yeah, I have an account on this site.

Got Resident Evil 4 Wii for $5. Uh ... this might be my favorite version. I'm just getting headshots nonstop. Did I miss any other Wii games that are frequently overlooked? Like, really obscure Wii games that no one talks about? I'm interested.

Update: played through Hyper Dimension Neptunia Rebirth, reminded why I don't like the series, and requested a refund on it and its sequel. Not sure if they'll refund the sequel, but if they honor at least the first, I'll use that money to get Undertale.

If anyone is interested, Amazon has the $80 Persona Q limited edition at just over $40 right now. Haven't beaten it yet, but it's been a ton of fun so far, and at that price, hey!
