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.
A little too late no?
Indeed, but hey, better than a punch in the eye.
Well, the 360 is akin to a corpse in Japan so a punch to an already decomposing face is hardly going to a make a difference. #dramatism #anthropomorphism #hashtags #ihatemondays
LOOL. the should give it away with xbone.. They should bundle in all the games that make xbox 360 great... Sell it as a loss leader, its the only way to get any traction in a market that does not want you there.
I thought its discontinued in Japan, selling less than 100 units/week.
They need to just stop. At this point its almost like they are just trying to make a statement, but what exactly that statement is remains to be seen.
Their about to give that ass away for free.
It's already dead in japan. A price cut will have zero effect, especially when PS3 still selling and games like Persona 5, Tales of Zestiria, and Yakuza 0 aren't coming to 360.
Yeah exactly. If I were MS I would swallow the hit on the consoles and make it sub £100. Some retailers here are selling the 360 slim with two recent games for £99 here in the UK. Even that would probably make little difference mind you, considering, like you said, there aren't those key games available on the platform.
TBH these old-generation systems need price cuts globally. My PS3 broke down and I can't believe the price to replacing it with a new one. I'm guessing that Cell processor didn't make its way into every fridge, toaster and TV that way Sony intended leaving them with aging hardware that doesn't price scale in-line with expectations.
1.1 MIL sold confirmed! I meant shipped...lol
How about kinect hentai video games that would sale like hot cakes.
