    Normally I don't use Twitter as a source, but there's slim pickings as far as Xbox One news goes right now, so...

    For all you fans of Blue Dragon and/or Lost Odyssey on the Xbox 360, behold.

    Seems a bit silly that they might be announcing a big JRPG title before they even announce when the Xbox One will be launching in Japan, but whatever.

    So, would this brighten up all you blue dragons, or should this be a tossed oddity?

    I finished Blue Dragon.

    Personally I enjoyed the DS sequal: Awakened Shadow more

    Star Ocean was shit.

    Though tbf, Microsoft made some attempt in making the 360 a weeaboo console. The problem was Japanese people were just too weeaboo to buy an 'merican system.

    Plus Star Ocean was shit.

    I still have issues with that line of logic. More on the thread I pondered it in ( http://gbatemp.net/threads/ps3-and-360-exclusives-a-discussion.360416/ ) but other than a couple of tales games (which appeared on the Wii, were also remakes and the 360 had one in Tales of Vesperia, which was exclusive outside Japan), white knight chronicles, atelier, Hyperdimension Neptunia, Disgaea, Ar tonelico Qoga, Legasista and Ni no Kuni there was not a lot different. I can see being a fan of Ni no Kuni (though others said strip Ghibli and it would be a by the numbers affair) but the others are a bit more niche, Persona probably warrants being mentioned as well even if it is not out yet. After this we are talking version differences like Eternal Sonata (which the PS3 had a very nice, clearly superior in many ways, version of).

    Sure you would only miss out on Blue Dragon, Tales of Vesperia, Infinite Undiscovery and Magna Carta 2 (one of my favourites) but I am not sure you would be missing out on much.

    Edit. Forgot to mention there is an "international" version of Star Ocean on the PS3 as well, it hit a year later.

    Ha I know. I was mostly joking. Did you mention "Blaze Blue"? some really complicated pvp fighter game.

    I have a friend which reminds me every now and then of how much Blue Dragon sucked.

    And well, it sucked HARD.

    I'm sorry to all Xbox fans but it's just hard to think of Xbox without referring shooters considering it's the console for shooting games.

    But I digress, I'm playing Conker's Bad Fur Day on my 360 and that is awesome!

    Indeed, the 360 has a killer shmup library.

    I sincerely hope he calls it Blue-Ball Dragon and/or Blue Saggin'.
