Akiba’s Trip Used To Let Players Smash Bloodsuckers With An Xbox 360

ps3_00Ah, Acquire’s quirky humor weaved its way into Akiba’s Trip, the PSP action-adventure game where you expose vampire-like creatures in Akihabara.


When Akiba’s Trip was early in development Acquire put PS3s in the game for players to use as a weapon. However, during debugging the developers were asked if this item would be an odd addition.


Acquire decided to change the item into an Xbox 360, but were asked the same question. Instead of redesigning the object, Acquire changed it’s name. That’s not an Xbox 360 after all, it’s a "small heater."

Watch out vampires, those Xbo – space heaters are dangerous! Akiba’s Trip comes out on May 19 in Japan.

    It would be fun if the Vampires’ clothes burn when hit with the Xbo- small heater!

  • I fear the power brick even more

    So they’re not worried about being sued? Everyone is sueing everyone for everything now days and this could get Microsoft a win if they attempted the same.

      One can’t really say it looks like a 360 anyway. It’s too low-res. The PS3 was more recognizable because it had the logo on front and a more distinct shape.

    • I think that’s why they switched the power button and cd drive on purpose.

    • Nah. Microsoft has a good sense of humor — unlike Sony.

    this “heater”. i want this. I’ll take 3!

  • LOL “Small heater” is an awesome name and I approve. They should have also included the original Xbox and call that “world’s most powerful paperweight”…But I guess that’s pretty long.

    (and before haters gonna hate, I own and love my XBox 360 :D).
