Xbox One “Greatest Hits” Games Released Today in Japan for $25

In a further attempt to push the Xbox One on the difficult Japanese market, Microsoft released today the first batch of “Greatest Hits” games on the local shelves.

The titles included are Ryse: Son of Rome, Sunset Overdrive and Dead Rising 3, all sold for the discounted price of 2,900 yen, which translates to $25, excluding taxes.

It’s unclear what criteria dictated the selection of the titles included. According to Media Create, Dead Rising 3 sold 7,786 copies in its debut week, slipping off the charts afterwards. Ryse didn’t make the top 20, meaning that it sold less than 4,437 at launch, with further sales unknown. Sunset Overdrive did manage to get on the charts on its first week, selling 3,534 units.

It’ll be interesting to see if the lower price will help the three games back on the charts, but we’ll have to wait for next Wednesday for the top 20, and Friday for the top 50.
