TOKYO: Microsoft Corp said that 39 game makers will offer a total of 47

titles for the company's online game service set to be launched this autumn for

users of its Xbox console.


The US software giant said a starter kit for Xbox online games will be priced

at 6,800 yen ($54.5), which includes service fees for the first 12 months.

Last month, Microsoft said it was preparing a global online gaming network

for Xbox in a bid to jump-start Internet-linked video games. Microsoft rolled

out Xbox on February 22 in Japan following its US debut in November.
