Japanese Xbox Live Details
June 13, 2002

Microsoft has announced details of their plans for the Xbox Live service in Japan.  Most of it is the same as what we've already heard for North America, but there are several significant points:
  • Still scheduled for launch this fall, the Xbox Live starter kit will include a version of Phantasy Star Online.  North American gamers are getting a version of Acclaim's Re-Volt instead.  The reason for PSO's inclusion is obvious: with poor sales of the Xbox in Japan so far, PSO will be a much better system (and online) seller than Re-Volt will.  Everything else about the kit (software, 1 year of service, Communicator) remains the same for Japan.
  • Whacked! will be one of the major games launching with the service.
  • Sega has announced an online volleyball game, Spike-Out X-Treme (tentative title).  Other scheduled online games include MechAssault, Midtown Madness 3, an online RPG and an online fishing game.  No release dates were announced for these titles.
