Bikini babes a dime a dozen on the Xbox 360

By Spencer . October 26, 2006 . 10:36am

Not just one, but three games featuring CG models in low cut bikinis are going to be on the Xbox 360 by the end of the year. You’ve already seen Rumble Roses XX, Konami’s all female wrestling game. While Rumble Roses XX wasn’t a hot seller in North America it is going to be added to the Xbox 360 platinum collection in Japan. Coming in November is Temco’s follow up to Dead or Alive Xtreme Beach Volleyball, Dead or Alive Xtreme 2 (see trailer). This game doesn’t just have volleyball it has other “sports” events like butt battle, jet ski racing and beach flag grabbing. Let’s face it these games are all just an excuse to ogle virtual girls. Then in December Tamsoft’s cult hit the Oneechanbara gets an Xbox 360 upgrade called Oneechanbara vorteX (see trailer). The Oneechanbara vorteX is a lot like Dynasty Warriors… with zombies to cut in half… and the main character wears a bikini and a cowboy hat. The Oneechanbara vorteX has new characters like a police officer who uses two guns instead of only sword wielding warriors. Are these really the kinds of next generation games gamers want? Or do companies go this route because these sure sellers?

  • Sure, one of the reasons why I am buying these games (except for Oneechanbara, which I’m not intent on buying should it appear outside of Japan) is to ogle virtual girls. Playing games like this is a great change from more frantic game experiences like Ninja Gaiden, and we should be happy that developers like Team Ninja cater for both ends of the spectrum.

    What are we talking about here anyway? Three games on 100+? Hardly worth of note, and easy to ignore for those who prefer other kinds of games.

    “Are these really the kinds of next generation games gamers want? Or do companies go this route because these sure sellers?”

    Well, as you mentioned the only one of these three games that’s been released didn’t do very well in the US. So, not a sure seller. And every one of them is a sequel to a game that appeared on another console. . . So not a new trend, just a continuing one.

    Personally I find the japanese love of shameless ogling quite charming. Now if only nudity were as acceptable in games as extreme violence or excessive sportiness, then we’d be getting somewhere.

    Exactly. It’s funny how a video game targeting kids can be full of violence, but not show girls in bikinis…
