    If the xbox lacked anything, it has lacked a good catalogue of RPG's, especially the Japanese style RPG. Is this likely to change with the xbox360?

    Thanks Captain, I'd only heard that MS had been targetting asian developers, thanks for the list above. This is encouraging, I hope they come to fruition.

    Don't forget Oblivion the sequal to morrowind, which is hyped to be one of the best games ever. I belive they are hopeing to have it out for launch in the US but none of the UK sites seem to have it for preorder yet.

    Edit - bioware are working on a couple too I belive. (makers of Knights of the republic and the amazing Balders gate RPG's for the PC.)

    One is Jade Empire two and they are also working on a FPS RPG which sounds fun too.

    Second edit lol - I'm hopeing that since square are releaseing their MMORPG Final fantasy for the Xbox 360 that they will also start to release their normal RPG Final fantasys too. Would be a bit blow to Sony if thats the case. Final Fantasy is a big reason to have a Playstation

    Well those are western Rpg's so are very different in feel and gameplay to asian rpg's - I'm still going to buy Oblivion as that looks superb nd i did enjoy morrowind on the xbox.
    Also Square are working on another 360 game aswell as Final fantasy 11 - hopefully it will be something cool - I would love to see a sequel to Vagrant Story or Parasite eve 3 on 360, that would be awesome. But sadly they are keeping very quiet about what they are working on.

    Final Fantasy is an Asian RPG and I belive Jade Empire is also (although not made by an Asian Company) but yes the others are Western.

    It looks like its going to be a great platform for RPGs of all types. Can't wait for Nov/Dec.

    I'm hopeing being able to sit in bed with wireless controllers on the new plasma TV will be enough to convince my wife that consoles are fun and she wants to play too ;)

    FFXI is indeed in a very Japanese style. The game is quite good, and you can play with PC and PS2 gamers together. There's two expansion packs, and a new one is apparently in the works, according to rumours.

    I hope Bioware come back to form, I was a big fan of Balder's gate and KOTOR, but Jade Empire just didnt do it for me.
