The Tokyo Game Show blasts off with Xbox arcade news, Sega hangin' out with the big boys and more. Also, Shenmue is Xbox bound and Aerosmith is selling their classic tunes to a fighting game.

The biggest batch of gaming news comes straight out of Tokyo, from the Tokyo Game Show 2001. Held in the middle of October, it was packed with game demos, previews, new tech toys and the latest buzz from the biggest companies.

1Big Bill's Xbox is working with Sega to create an arcade system from Xbox hardware. One of first big games is gonna be Outrun 2 - a sequel to the classic Outrun. Do the Xbox arcade system is gonna be da bomb?

1Sega's popular online action game is going to outlast the Dreamcast by a long shot. Phantasy Star Online (PSO) is coming to a Gamecube, Xbox and computer near you. If you're a fan of the game, you're in luck. You'll be able to chat with everyone - regardless of language - and kick evil butt on the net for years.


1If PSO for the Xbox wasn't good enough news, there's more - Shenmue II. Shenmue sounds funny but it's a wicked puzzle-action game that's as close as you'll get to playing in the real world. When it comes out in 2002 with Xbox power behind the wicked action, it's going to be insane.


1More good news for the Xbox. Aerosmith, the ancient rock band with the cool tunes, is letting Big Bill use a few of their tunes in the Xbox game Dead or Alive 3 (DOA3.) DOA3 is a fighting game with serious hype and graphics. You'll be able to kick butt and listen to Aerosmith's Amazing, Nine Lives and Home Tonight with the Xbox.
