Microsoft Cuts High-end Xbox 360 Model Price In Asian Mkts

Microsoft Corp. (MSFT) Friday said it is lowering the price for the high-end model of its Xbox 360 gaming console by as much as 28% in four Asian markets as it seeks to build momentum in the region.

The company said in a statement that the price cuts for the Xbox 360 Elite model, which comes with a 120-gigabyte hard drive, will take effect in Hong Kong, South Korea, Singapore and Taiwan starting Sept. 10.

"We really want to build on that strong position and widen our appeal to many more customers," Microsoft's Vice President of the Entertainment and Devices Division for Asia Pacific and Greater China Alan Bowman told Dow Jones Newswires in an interview. "It's really part of our plan to build on our strong position across Asia-Pacific." (Industry, Xbox 360)

Didn't the PS2 come out in the 20th century though?

those people in the pic are being held as hostages because we know MS doesn't do so well in the asian market and couldn't find anyone with a 360.
