Xbox Live expands Asian influence
Microsoft's gradual toe-dipping expansion of Xbox Live in the Far East continues in April, the company confirmed today, with launches in Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore. Live has been going in South Korea since last October, but despite the nation's obsession with things online and gaming; Live has failed to take-off, mainly due to a software line-up incompatible with local tastes, one would imagine.
With the launch of the Live service in these broadband-heavy regions, Microsoft is demonstrating its commitment to expanding the service, whilst at the same time cooperating with game developers in the region to develop more appropriate software. Whether this effort will be enough to dislodge the highly dominant PS2 remains to be seen.
