The Xbox 360 is a home video game console developed by Microsoft. As the successor to the original Xbox, it is the second console in the Xbox series. It competed with Sony’s PlayStation 3 and Nintendo’s Wii as part of the seventh generation of video game consoles. It was officially unveiled on MTV on May 12, 2005, with detailed launch and game information announced later that month at the 2005 E3 expo.

Japanese Game Hunt: Day 0

Technically the hunt starts tomorrow, but I thought that I'd just list a few things that I've bought here and there while walking around. One of the first things was a Japanese 360 console. I had spotted one for ¥5,960 in a Book-Off near Sunshine City, Ikebukuro but by the time I got back to it with cash it was gone (so much for the Xbox doesn't sell well in Japan comments, but then again a Brisbane Tekken player later told me that with the amount of foreign players here for EVO, games and hardware was disappearing fast as he had lost a stick the same way). I did end up getting another in a Book-Off in Akihabara on the way back to base for ¥6,000.

Save first, ask questions later!

When Microsoft added Backwards Compatibility to Xbox One, I started to move my save games to Cloud Saved Games as I played each game. Because of this and that I have multiple devices that I save on resulted in a few saves being accidentally deleted over time, most recently the other night. The primary cause for this is the way that older games forcibly create saves after you select a device.
