Xbox 360

Beautiful Katamari, beautiful rehash



I would be lying if I said the demo in Beautiful Katamari was revolutionary or evolutionary. Once again you're the prince and in the demo level you stick junk to the Katamari to make it as big as possible in two minutes. It is more of the same, but as a fan of the Katamari series I enjoyed it. There were some neat Xbox-centric items to roll up like an Xbox 360 console in the island in the center of the level and I was told the 360’s controller will be another item to roll up in the final game. So you might think Beautiful Katamari is going to be an Xbox 360 exclusive, but the word from Namco Bandai is it might not be. They are evaluating the possibilities of brining Beautiful Katamari to other consoles, but if it is ported you can bet some of the items are going to be changed. Over the Xbox Live Marketplace there is going to be extra Katamari content to download such as new cousins and presents. However, the add-on content is going to be strictly cosmetic, no new music or stages.
