The discount priced DLC includes content from Beautiful Katamari, Forza 2, Guitar Hero III, Mass Effect and Oblivion with savings ranging from 25-60% off the original prices. That means you can get Mass Effect's Bring Down The Sky DLC for 300 (originally 400), Oblivion's Shivering Isles for 1600 (originally 2400) and GHIII's Foo Fighters Pack for 360 (originally 500).

Buy $100 in 360 accessories, get a free game

Microsoft is running an interesting deal for Canadian fanboys, where they're giving customers a free game for purchasing at least $100 in 360 accessories. Suh-weet!

This mail-in offer (again, only available in Canada) gives customers the choice of receiving Halo 3, Lost Odyssey, PGR4 or Viva Pinata Party Animals for FREE as long as receipt proof can be supplied proving that $100 in accessories were purchased between June 17th and July 1st, 2008. And by accessories, we mean pretty much every accessory known to exist including controllers, Vision camera, wireless adapter, 120GB HDD and the Messenger Kit. That means if you are already in the market for high priced 360 accessories like the 120GB HDD or wireless adapter, you pretty much score a free game with your purchase.

Lost Odyssey: Seeker of the Deep dungeon DLC

Releasing this Friday, May 23rd to the Xbox Live Marketplace is a new chunk of dungeon DLC for Lost Odyssey called "Seeker of the Deep". And for the 400 Microsoft point price of admission, the Seeker of the Deep DLC will add a new dungeon to the mix where (we expect) lots of dungeon shenanigans will take place.

Fanswag Weekly: Lost Odyssey

Lost Odyssey Triple Bonus Pack now on XBLM

Remember the Lost Odyssey downloadable content we mentioned yesterday? You know, the Triple Bonus Pack DLC that is actually available to non-Japanese Xbox Live regions? The same Lost Odyssey DLC that's 200 Microsoft points and includes three new items including the "Shattered Bond", "Killer Machine" and the "Memory Lamp"? Oh, you do remember? Good, because it's now available to all Xbox Live regions for purchase off the Marketplace. Enjoy!

Lost Odyssey DLC available to all this Friday

Finally, after numerous pieces of downloadable content have graced the Japanese Marketplace, Lost Odyssey fans in other Live regions will get in on the DLC fun.

A new 200 Microsoft point Lost Odyssey DLC bonus pack will release on Friday, April 25th to North America (and, more than likely, to the European) XBLM and feature a new dream sequence and a few new items. "The Shattered Bond" will allow plays to experience a new dream, the "Killer Machine" ring will give extra protection against magic-powered weapons and the "Memory Lamp" will let players re-live previous dreams. The DLC may be a tad bit on the expensive side, but at least it's available outside of Japan. Right?

Japan receives more Lost Odyssey DLC

As if two sets of downloadable content weren't enough, our gaming friends over in Japan are set to get a third piece of Lost Odyssey DLC this Thursday, April 10th. The new Seeker of the Abyss DLC is another dungeon, located in the sea and features a new Eternal Magic Engine that helps with MP consumption. Seeker of the Abyss will be available exclusively to Japanese gamers for 400 Microsoft points and, just like the other two DLC sets, no North American release has been announced. Though, we suspect Microsoft would want to start releasing these before Lost Odyssey's luster wears thin Stateside.

Didja know that the best RPGs are on the 360?

Microsoft just launched a new marketing campaign whose main aim is to get you trained so that when someone mentions the letters RPG your instant response will be Xbox 360. The Best RPGs Are On Xbox 360 is the campaign's name and highlights some of the best of the best RPGs that grace the Xbox 360 including Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, Mass Effect, Oblivion and of course Fable 2. Simply head to to get the dish on these super RPGs and if your interest is piqued, make your way to Gamestop. There you will find a free retail disc that comes packed with information on these "Best RPGs" as well as never before seen videos of Fable 2 and the complete Sci-Fi channel "Sci vs Fi" episode featuring Mass Effect. Now how can you not agree? The Xbox 360 is hands down the best place to find RPGs ... just none that are on the Playstation platform.

Rumor: Lost Odyssey to get sequel

With the first of Mistwalker's exclusive 360 franchises already rumored to be getting a sequel, it would be remiss if there wasn't a reciprocating rumor for the second franchise. So, to be proper as possible, here we are reporting on a rumor of just that. Nikkei, a Japanese game site, posted an interview with the H&E Head of Microsoft. In the interview he made a comment to the effect of being satisfied with the games initial Japanese sales, and that the series will grow with time. Wait ... how can there be a series when there has only been one game? Well, there's actually several explanations here. The first and most likely explanation is translation error, it's probable that the translator simply didn't think much and used the word "series" when the original meaning was closer to "IP". The second possibility is that it is of course all too true, and the game is getting a sequel. Readers, what do you think? Is the game worthy of a sequel? If it is being made, should Mistwalker drop it in favor of their rumored MMO?

Free MS points with Lost Odyssey pre-order

If you're a resident of the pristine lands of the UK and are a guaranteed purchaser of Lost Odyssey, then we have a deal for you. UK retailer HMV is offering 1000 Microsoft points for free to anyone who pre-orders Lost Odyssey before the game hits retailers this week. Free MS points that can be used on the sure to be released DLC in the months to come. This offer is not only fourteen times better than the United States' pre-order bonus, but our European friends also enjoy prettier packaging as well. You lucky monkeys.

Shipping this week: feed your head edition

Another week, another batch of brand new games for the Xbox 360. The biggest game this week is undoubtedly Lost Odyssey. Of course, given its nature, Lost Odyssey will draw one of two reactions: excited, nerdy screams or decidedly protracted yawns. X3F seems to be relatively split on the subject (we all dig the commercial though). Not to fear if Japanese RPGs aren't your thing though, as we've also got some Conflict: Denied Ops action and even some new Xbox Originals to download. Behold!
  • Lost Odyssey
  • Jumper
  • Conflict: Denied Ops
  • Dark Messiah of Might & Magic
  • Ninja Gaiden Black (Xbox Originals)
  • Black (Xbox Originals)
  • Sid Meier's Pirates! Live the Life (Xbox Originals)

Video: Lost Odyssey follows the white rabbit

Mistwalker released a new Lost Odyssey trailer today and color us white, it's rather enjoyable. The new trailer doesn't focus on Lost Odyssey's novel qualities or mention anything about the lackluster collector's edition, instead Mistwalker focuses on Lost Odyssey's art, story and epic RPG scale. The trailer's visuals are A+, but we think the background music track ("White Rabbit" by Jefferson Airplane) is what sells it. Tell us we're wrong if you like, but the latest trailer is a winner in our book. Follow that white rabbit!

Lost Odyssey: the best game you'll ever read

Multiplayer has an interesting little preview up for Lost Odyssey, the upcoming RPG from Mistwalker starring an immortal man with amnesia. We've reported before that a significant portion of the game is taken up by flashbacks. The twist is that these flashbacks are actually written short stories for the player to read (if desired). While Multiplayer reports that the game is more or less aimed squarely at Final Fantasy fans, the short stories are apparently an entertaining diversion. It's explained that one of the reasons these stories are so entertaining is that they are significantly different from things tried in other, similar Japanese RPGs. It's not uncommon for games to present unlockable content as an incentive for players to keep on playing, but we're pretty sure that short stories are a first. Fret not if reading isn't your thing, as Multiplayer also takes a look at the rest of the game. You can hit the "read" link to check out the whole preview, or you can let us save you some time: if you like Final Fantasy, it sounds like you'll like Lost Odyssey. Just get ready for a lot of loading.
