In a survey sent out by Sony, they reassure recipients, "We are constantly looking to improve our online service so that it meets all of your expectations." They follow with a list of 33 questions, many asking for responses to features identical to those on Microsoft's lauded Xbox Live service.

As a way of introducing the Xbox 360 to Japan, Microsoft opened a special café in the center of Tokyo back in November. This so-called Xbox 360 Lounge was meant to act as a place for gamers to come and check out the new console while offering them refreshments and a place to socialize. Even though the Japanese launch of the XBox 360 has been far from a success, Microsoft has decided to extend the amount of time the lounge will remain open by one month, meaning it will now close on February 12th. Microsoft attributed the decision to the popularity of the lounge.

Reuters reports that Microsoft has sold 600,000 Xbox 360 consoles in the United States since its November 2005 launch. Data comes from the NDP Group which measures and projects nearly two-thirds of all US retail sales. From the article: "The Xbox 360 debuted to much fanfare on November 22 in North America, where the unit has been in short supply. Analysts, video game publishers and retailers have said shipments during the key holiday season fell short of expectations." As expected, the system has not been selling well in Japan up to this point either, but Microsoft has confirmed its target of selling between 4.5 million and 5.5 million 360 during the current fiscal year ending June 30 of this year.

Being able to slow, stop, and reverse time sounds simple, but put those time controls into a game and you have issues, as Saber Interactive discovered with TimeShift. We've all heard of the famous time-travel puzzle that asks, if you go back in time and kill your father before he meets your mother, haven't you created a conundrum? Because if you were never born, how could you go back in time and kill you father to begin with? This goes to show that time travel can be messy, as the developers of TimeShift have discovered.
