@corruptedevil: Yeah true. The Japanese shop staff are actually pretty strict with selling to westerners. I bought a blue Vita from Bic Camera and the guy was like "you prob. won't be able to play this in your country", almost trying to talk me out of the sale. Then the girl behind the counter said "you realise this is a blue one right?" lol. I really want to buy a copy of Fatal Frame for my Wii U just to test as it's out in Sept, but I know it won't play.
Tomb Raider's not going to save Xbox, it just shows that Microsoft is still the same company buying out winners rather than creating their own. Man they were pushing Halo at that conference, could not be less interested myself.
