Microsoft Attacks Japanese Video Game Market with More Affordable Xbox 360

Microsoft Corp. plans to release a more affordable version of its latest Xbox 360 game console on the Japanese market in early March, the company announced.

The move is set to be made to boost popularity of the game system in Japan, however, it is completely unclear whether it will be a success.

Microsoft Xbox 360 Arcade edition is scheduled to emerge in Japan on the 6th of March at the price of ¥27800 ($261). The model is already available in the U.S., where it substituted the so-called “Core” version of the Xbox 360 back in late 2007. However, up to now there was no truly affordable version of the Xbox 360 in Japan, but only “Premium” and “Elite” flavours were available.

The Japanese version Microsoft Xbox 360 Arcade will be the same as sold in the USA: it features a wireless controller, a high-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) connection to enable high-definition output if desired and 256MB of memory useful for storing games and entertainment content. The novelty does not feature a hard disk drive, but, just as the Xbox 360 core, it can be upgraded with a special HDD afterwards.
