Microsoft throws a CERO Z game fest


Typically the CERO Z (equivalent to the AO ESRB rating) has been taboo, but instead of shunning it Microsoft is celebrating it. On January 12 in Akihabara’s UDX 3D Theater Microsoft is having an Adult Games Fiesta. At the event are six CERO Z games: Gears of War, Vampire Rain, The Godfather, Riot Act (Crackdown), Onechanbara VorteX and Dead Rising. While some of these games are mega hits in the USA, they’re niche titles in Japan. By grouping them together Microsoft might be able to pick up another audience that the other consoles aren’t catering to. You know the audience that likes blowing stuff up and bikini wearing samurais.
