Microsoft Announces Price Cut for Xbox 360 in Japan

The Xbox 360 has never been what you’d define a massively succesful console in Japan, but Microsoft seem to be hoping to sell more, or at least to clear some inventory by announcing a price cut.

The 250 GB version of the veteran console used to cost 28,381 yen plus taxes, while the new price is 23,600 yen (roughly $199). Add taxes to the price and customers will have to pay 25,488 yen (just north of $215).

For the moment only the 250 GB version had its price cut in Japan, and there’s no hint of any local holiday price reduction for the Xbox One yet.
