360 title in Famitsu's most wanted. Wha??

Several sites have been posting Famitsu's latest most wanted list. But wait! What's this? An Xbox 360 exclusive, Blue Dragon -- the RPG being developed by Hironobu Sakaguchi's Mistwalker studio -- is number 8. A prestigious spot indeed for a 360 title. Even more impressive, Blue Dragon tops the Japanese favorites like The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Super Smash Bros. Brawl. This is just the sort of thing that Microsoft's new Japanese PR blog should be pimping, and pimping hard.

Be warned, the read link points to a Nintendo fan site. Surprisingly, it has nothing to do with the 360 at all. So, just prepare yourselves for that.

Something tells me a japanese exclusive "Blue Dragon" edition 360 is in the works. If it isn't, it sure should be. This game will be the make-it break-it point for the gai-jin console in the land of the rising sun.

"So begins the dawn of a new era!"

The Xbox 360 now has an exclusive RPG that the Japanese consumers are looking forward to. Blue Dragon is being developed by the man who was the lead producer and developer of Final Fantasy games for decades now! This game is getting a LOT of hype in Japan; it is now officially in the same league with Final Fantasy!

When September gets here, and AT LEAST one version of Final Fantasy XIII is revealed for the Xbox 360 at the Tokyo Game Show, then Blue Dragon and Final Fantasy will attract a lot of new customers to the Xbox 360!

Heh... I uh find it amusing that in the blog post we have to mention: "Be warned, the read link points to a Nintendo fan site. Surprisingly, it has nothing to do with the 360 at all. So, just prepare yourselves for that."

I don't get why everyone with their console of choice is all political almost these days... it's like Sony fanboys get disgusted if they come across a 360 site... nintendo fans with a sony site... etc... I mean they're just consoles people! Not political demographics! We're not controlling third-world countries and democracies here lol Can't we all just get along?...

Back on topic, I am very excited for a new RPG IP on 360. Bring it.

Considering most people with a 360 will be buying a Wii, why is this looked at as a bad thing?
