Oh, I don't know if the black color is limited. I would guess not, because they are offering wireless controllers and other accessories in black, too :)
I think it's big that Square is carrying over the actual numbers to other systems, the first big spin off being FFXII for the DS. It wasn't like that before. FFXIII universe will likely traverse all platforms (Wii, DS, PSP, PS3,T and 360, PS2 maybe, too!).
I know Lair won't go cross-platform, neither with God of War. I was saying 3rd parties (Konami MGS4) would possibly jump cross-platform, and I think MGS4 would be a major loss if it cross-platformed.
And, I think you are right, HappySquirrel, about this gen vs the last.
Does anyone have a figure of how many Xbox's were sold in it's first year as opposed to the 360? Did the 360 outsell it? And what about Gamecube's start? I hear it is similar to the PS3s WW.
The 360 is actually selling at a slower rate than the original Xbox, and that does not bode well for Microsoft...
MGS 4 is PS3 exclusive, right out of Kojima's mouth as stated previously.
The 360 is never gonna reach the PS3 in Japan, no matter how much less PS3 sells compared to the Wii over there, I don't see too many Japanese developers embracing the 360, but it's definitely getting a lot more support than the xbox did from Japanese companies.
Companies like Capcom are looking at using the 360 as a way to make their games that are focused on the west instead of Japan and it's possible that Square makes an FF XIII spin off on the 360 because it would sell.
So Japanese games targetted at Japan will not often come out on the 360, very rarely is that gonna happen (Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey)
