They can keep Itagaki. I wouldn't mind MS getting some big name Japanese developers to make games for them. Then again Sakaguchi was involved with Lost Odyssey and that didn't sell well so it may be a pointless venture at the end of the day.
Love the idea but I just don't think they could work under anyone especially after breaking away from their previous employers. I think a partnership would be cool though. Hopefully MS courts them like they did with Platnum studios.
Man the state of these forums is really sad. These guys will be a huge welcome. Itagaki had a bad run but I'm sure with proper funding he could do something, Recore was small but I'll bet Recore 2 will be big in every way. Sakaguchi did some amazing Xbox
360 rpgs would like to see him do more. I especially enjoyed Blue Dragon.
