Idk why the price cut is temporary. They might as well just leave the Xbox One at that price. Hell, they're better off giving those things away for free in Japan at this point...

They might do what they did last holiday in the US. They announced a temporary price cut, then when it expired, they made it permanent.

It's a marketing ploy, they say it's temporary to get people to go out and buy one (thinking they're getting a bargain), but it'll most likely end up being permanent like last time :)

Since price drop is their only hope to gain market share in Japan, I doubt they will raise again.

They might as well keep the price down at this point, just like how the temporary price cut last year became permanent.

Maybe now Xbox One will be able to sell 500 units a week in Japan
