Hot Japanese Chicks Play Xbox LiveThree pin-up models. Race cars. Xbox Live. The Microsoft Japan publicity machine keeps on keeping on. In an effort to attract consumers for the 360’s online gaming, a trio of popular gravia models were enlisted to play a few rounds of Project Gotham Racing 3. Apparently, the event (called “Fun Time”) was a hit and generated much interested in the young women, err Xbox Live.

Will the anticipated RPG Blue Dragon bring the mainstream back to the fold?
