    To sum it up, the game comes out for the X-Box in America on February 12, 2002. I'm known to not be a big XB fan, but this is one of the games that is the reason why I will still get one. Knowing Sega, it will kick.

    From this announcement (and the same type thing on other pages), it sounds like the name will be Jet Set Radio Future, rather than Jet Grind Radio Future. A good thing, IMO. "Grind" alway sounded a bit, well...dorky. [​IMG]
    And Feb. isn't too far away!

    What's changed that would allow them to use Jet Set all of a sudden?

    My lust for Jet Set Radio on the DC has me drooling over the X-Box incarnation (despite it not looking as fresh and comic book like as the DC game). Nevertheless, alongside Project Gotham that puts my "games to want an X-Box for" list up to...uhm.....two.... Fingers crossed for an eventual Jet Set Radio on the cube then.

    This is THE game that will make me buy the Xbox in Feb. Until Feb I will be playing as much Silent Hill 2, Devil May Cry, MGS2, GCN, Luigi's Mansion, Rouge Squadron 2, etc as I possibly can!
    There are currently 3 games for the Xbox that have me excited:
    Jet Set Radio Future
    GUNVALKYRE
    Project Gotham
    funny 2 out of 3 are SEGA titles....hmmmmm, loyalties are hard to die.

    With all of the awesome games and systems in the next six months, I don't know which will be more scarce: money or free time! [​IMG]

    Two words: Thanksgiving, Christmas. One gives you some free time, the other gives you time and games.
    My birthday is in the middle of October. Maybe I can get some of the September PS2 games (like Soul Reaver 2) for that.
    Back to the topic, Jet Set Radio Future is one of the very few games that has me excited at all about the X-Box (Dead or Alive 3 would look and sound nice, but I would probably get bored since the actual fighting hasn't changed much over DoA2, but I have yet to play it).

    Don't forget, Sega's games will likely be released on all the consoles eventually. Xbox is definitely getting the most interesting ones initially, in my opinion.

    Can someone tell me what the point of the game is, or at least what the point of the first game was?

    Tekken 4 and Virtua Fighter 4 are both going to be on the PS2. A little rivalry between the next two games in the two top fighting series of all time (cuz you know that videogames have been around forever).
    The point of the game is to skate around (on rollerblades) as a member of a group of skating punks who spraypaint their symbol all over the city. As you skate around, the cops try to get you, rival groups' members paint over your symbols, and you need to add your symbol over rival groups' symbols. You collect spray cans and do tricks to raise your score. When you go to paint a spot, you have to use the spray cans and do certain movements with the control stick to finish the move. After several moves, the symbol is painted.
    I have only played a demo and read about it. If I missed something or said something wrong, please correct me.

    Morgan, your descritpion of the game's objectives is spot on. In addition to what you said, you often get challenges from other street skaters who'll join your gang if you can beat them at something. If you do beat them, you're free to select them to play with on the levels and each character has advantages and dissadvantages over the other. At some points in the game you are also literally required to tag rival gang members, spraying them about 10 times to knock them out.
    I truly love this game. I went back to it and played it right through again recently and I still never tire of it. Terrific gameplay, lovely visuals and superb music, and its not even my kind of music, but it just works. Every aspect of the game worked for me. Few games cause me to react out loud to a visual effect, but the insaine cop sending tanks after me literally had me gasping.
    Got to ask, does anyone feel the pics from the X-Box version are somewhat lacking in that overall comic book feel the DC game had? While the X-Box version retains that nice look to the characters, the scenery now seems a lot more bland and realistic looking.

    Yes, I knew that Morgan [​IMG] (about VF4)
    But it STILL needs to be on the X-Box.

    I must say I don't like Future's new character designs, but the first one is such a blast I really want to play it
    Morgan, pick it up, Best Buy has it for $9.99. A real blast and a half to play. I've played through it 4 times now (I wish it had a level select, or, I'm hoping with Future, a level designer [​IMG] Gotta use that HD for something!

    Dan, you're being harsh there, surely? I thought they announced a new Crazy Taxi for the X-Box too?
    Suffice to say, that I haven't seen a game for it I want though that isn't a followup to a DC one [​IMG]
    Anyway, to return to the point most of the shots so far were the result of a quick, rather rushed port they knocked together for promotional stuff; I'm expecting the final game to look much better.

    Perhaps I'm missing something, but I found JSR's gameplay got kinda boring a repetative rather quickly. The design was amazing and all, and it's fun in short doses, but it just didn't do much for me in the long haul.

    Dan, have you checked out any of the videos on the net? The videos look very different from the screenshots, IMO. Plus, the music is better than ever. [​IMG]

    I am so glad that Sega made Crazy Taxi, with my busy life its hard to block off even a hour of game time, so with games like Crazy Taxi I can sit down and play for 10 - 15 minutes and then get up and go do whatever I need to do. I love it for its simplicity, but yet its ability to maintain a challenge. Tony Hawk is another game that I love. Of coarse fighters and shooters do the same thing for me. I bet my game library is made up of more shooters than most other games. The last time I had the time to sit down and play a large amount of games was......last Christmas.
