Microsoft have used the Tokyo Game Show to introduce 11 new Sega titles to the Xbox's ranks. Familiar-sounding properties like "Jet Grind Radio Future", "Panzer Dragoon", "GUNVALKYRIE" and "Sega GT" will be amongst the console's early titles. Sega hope to utilize the recently-announced ADSL broadband network features of the Xbox, too. Speaking at TGS, Chief Xbox Officer Robbie Bach commented. "The creative artists at Sega not only are going to deliver great Xbox games, they will help us establish the benchmark for great Xbox gaming experiences both on and offline." "We believe that Microsoft will be very successful with Xbox, which is why we have such a close, strategic relationship with them," said Peter Moore, president and COO, Sega of America. "Our world-renowned development studios have been very impressed with the Xbox hardware, and they are excited to bring new gaming experiences to consumers by utilizing the platform's power and network capabilities. We share Microsoft's commitment to broadband online gaming and will work with it to deliver the best content possible to gamers." Related Feature - Microsoft reveal broadband strategy for Japan
