So, it appears that Microsoft are up to their money spinning ways again and this time, its come in the form of JRPG, Lost Odyssey. The game, from the creator of Final Fantasy, Hironobu Sakaguchi, is somewhat broken into parts to let Microsoft get more money. Put it simply, if you dont pre-order the game, you get half of Lost Odyssey. You do pre-order it, you get the full works of the game.
This joins the many list of things of Microsoft grabbing your money, such as putting in the Halo 3 beta into Crackdown and Windows Vista. Lost Odyssey is an exclusive to to the Xbox 360 and is due out sometime this year in 2008 with a March release date for Japan.
