Microsoft Gives Last Push to Xbox 360 in Japan: $20 Discount for Buying Titanfall with the Console

on March 7, 2014 2:21 AM

The career of the Xbox 360 in Japan hasn’t been exactly stellar, with the aging console now selling about 250 units a week in the whole country, but Microsoft is playing one last card in collaboration with Electronic Arts.

Gamers that will purchase Titanfall with a 250 GB version of the Xbox 360 starting on March 27th will benefit from a 2,000 yen discount (about $20), as announced today by Microsoft Japan.

The press release also advises customers to check beforehand because not all retailers will implement the campaign. It’s worth mentioning that the Xbox One version won’t be released in Japan for the moment because the the console still doesn’t have a local release date.

Will this discount and the release of Titanfall grant one last spark of life to the Xbox 360 in the archipelago of the Rising Sun?  We’ll know with the Media Create charts coming out on April 2nd. Feel free to place your bets on how many units will sell in the comments below.
