Microsoft Is Turning Japanese... It Really Thinks So

The Tokyo Game Show, going on right now, is where Microsoft is beginning its efforts to try and prove to Japanese audiences that the Xbox is a console worth buying. Major Nelson has put the keynote address including Microsoft's Robbie Bach into his blogcast this week (as usual, in MP3 and WMA formats). Next Generation is weighing in with how Microsoft's dog and pony show is going over down in the land of the rising sun; they are sure to be the first of many. At the moment, though, all the buzz is about the Nintendo Revolution controller, which is apparently something that resembles a TV remote that relies on gyroscopic sensors that detect the device's orientation to provide control.
