Microsoft Introduces Referral Program To Push Xbox One in Japan

on November 1, 2015 3:16 PM

Xbox One’s performance in Japan hasn’t been exactly stellar. While the efforts of the company to keep a foothold in the country have been admirable, less that 58,000 units have been sold in the archipelago of the rising sun.

In order to amend the situation, the Japanese arm of Microsoft has tried several workarounds, and the latest is rather interesting, in the form of a rewards program prompting Xbox One owners to invite their friends to purchase a new console.

During the period of the promotion, that will last until November 25th, those who will convince a friend to purchase a new Xbox One console will receive 25,000 rewards points in the Xbox rewards program, and the friend will actually get the same.

Increasing cumulative rewards are also available for referring 3, 10 and 25 friends, including VIP badges, mentions on the spotlight page, and even on the official Xbox One page and by the official Xbox Twitter account.

If you’re a Japanese Xbox One owner, and you want to get some goodies and glory, now you know what to do.
