NamcoTokyo, JapanFounded in 1955, Namco (Nakamura Manufacturing Ltd. at the time) got its start installing rocking horse rides on the top of a department store. In 1972 they adopted the "Namco" name and two years later entered the arcade gaming world with their purchase of "Atari". Today they develop such key titles as "Tekken", "Soul Calibur" and "Ridge Racer".
Website Quote: "'Play is culture.' This is a tenet fundamental to our corporation, based on our beliefs that the 21st century will be an 'Era of Spirituality,' and that 'To play is human.' Basic human needs are in a state of transition, moving from values based in materialism--that is acquiring more, better and different goods--to a more spiritually fulfilling existence that satisfies the human desires for play and pleasure."Some of Namco's most popular games on 360-HQ are:
