I love the TGS. In Japan, developers are forced to show the more artistic side of gaming. This is not a shot against American gamers, but for the most part, on the west side of the pond, we are simply "wowed" by glamourous screen shots and snazzy graphics. In Japan (as Microsoft has learned the hard way) developers need to pay more attention to art style and writing quality.

Eternal Sonota is an RPG (JRPG if you will) in developement for the 360. It looks phenomenal and has a striking resemblance to a new-age Chrono Trigger. I know that's a bold statement, but it looks great.

I haven't heard of this game till today, but I'm drooling. No word on a release date.

Man, I would love to see a great RPG for 360, then again I still need to beat a few FF's on my PS, and I could always get the KOTORs and Jade Empire.

Lost Odessy looks awesome. And yes, it is being made by the guy who made the earlier Final Fantasy games (the better ones - 4, 5, and 6). Looks awesome. LO is slated to be released June 15th or 2007.

Got to give it to microsoft. They acknowledged the lacking RPG's from the xbox and made a commitment for the 360. Definately got a good string of RPG's on the way.
