Quick Quotes – Cave on building the Xbox 360′s Japanese user base

Friday, 11th November 2011 06:00 GMT By Brenna Hillier

“It’s important that more 360 exclusive titles arrive on the system. In the way I look at it, games and hardware have to be thought of together, so for hardware to be successful you have to develop games. While Xbox 360 is very popular internationally, it’s not as popular in Japan at the moment. I think things can change if there are more exclusive titles from Cave and other developers for the system.”

– Makoto Asada of Japanese sch’mup developer Cave speaks to Siliconera about Microsoft’s battle to win over Japanese consumers.

    who cares what the thing looks like? you look at the TV screen not the console.

    The original 360 design was fine, the slim is much better though. Whereas the first design of the PS3 was better than their Slim.

    Cave FTW! Though you don’t need an 360 just a modern iOS device to play their brilliant games.
