Microsoft Announces Price Cut for Xbox 360 in Japan

on December 1, 2014 7:37 AM

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.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
