Japanese 360s get DOAX face-lift

Tecmo to sell a Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 faceplate featuring a lounging Kasumi alongside the Team Ninja game.

by

The DOAX2 360 faceplate.

To commemorate the Japanese launch of Tecmo's Dead or Alive Xtreme 2, the publisher's online shop has announced an Xbox 360 faceplate for the game that will go on sale next to it November 22. Kasumi will retail for 3,150 yen, or about $27. It will be sold both through Tecmo's online store and in game shops throughout Japan. The online shop's description reads: "It will be summer in your Xbox all year round. One look, and you'll want to grip your controller, even if you're not playing the game." The online shop also features towels, posters, and, for the truly deep-pocketed DOAX fan, replicas of bathing suits depicted in the game for 19,950 yen, about $170, each.

I agree with Hitomi6x. I love the first one on Xbox, so this game is on my wishlist. Nothing's gonna stop me from buying DOAX2.

Ughhhh, could the faceplate be anymore useless. How could you put that on your 360 and still respect yourself at the end of night?

"One look, and you'll want to grip your controller, even if you're not playing the game." lol, let's hope they mean the 360 controller. And DOAX towels? "A perfect replacement for that rag between the matress that you hope Mom doesn't find." I think I speak for all of us when I say partial nudity, FTW.

Hell it looks better then 90% of the face plates out there and I'm not talking about Kasumi being on the cover. It actually looks like it should be worth $10.

"It will be summer in your Xbox all year round. One look, and you'll want to grip your controller, even if you're not playing the game." ...Let's just hope that they mean the X360 controller with that...
