Xbox 360 Elite to arrive in October in Japan

According to Microsoft's Japanese arm, the Elite will arrive over there on the 11 October, although a price point has yet to be announced. However, if the other 360 models are anything to go by, expect it to be a bit cheaper than the European and American versions.

Xbox360 had a year head start: Total sales around 10 million with about 30% failure rate give or take. Despite the hottest title Gears of War only 2 million copies or about 20% of 360 users care to purchase the title. ALARMING!!!

MS hopes that POACHING once PS2 exclusives would lead to more 360 consoles sold. NEVER HAPPENED, NEVER WILL! MS doesn't understand PS owners. We don't WANT A 360 - EVER!!!

PLus they are running out of successful PS2 exclusives to POACH.

What will happen then? What would happen if those once PS2 exclusives dont sell as much as Gears of War 2 million copies? Scary thought. MONEY DOWN the drain.

PS3 has already sold 5 million units worldwide and it still doesnt have a killer app yet although Resistance sold 2 million copies. That means almost 50% of PS3 owners bought Resistance compared to about 20% of all 360 owners for Gears of War.

Once PS3 gets rolling with its titles its game over.

The number dont lie. PS3 sold 5 million units averaging about $599 with NO KILLER APPS.

I would be scared if I was MS or Nintendo.

Wii only sells because of Wii Sports. No other new users will play beyond Wii Sports. The numbers dont lie. Gamers will buy games on Wii but new users will go no further than Wii Sports.

Dont believe me ask any friend or family member to play anything beyond Wii Sports.

PS3 has superior tech and superior build. PS3 wins HANDS DOWN.

Thats why Sony is not gonna waste their cash on once PS2 exclusives.

MS on the other hand is desperate. JUST LIKE POACHERS IN AFRICA...desperate.

But once you POACH there comes a DAY when NO MORE TO POACH and you roll over and DIE!

PS owners dont want a 360 and NEVER will no matter what you POACH MS!!

Laughable comments....the only truth is the price and the NO KILLER APPS...

I'm not saying the PS3 won't shift in volume when it finally gets any games worth playing, but until then the Wii and 360 will continue to chew in to Sony market share.

PS3 will be a good buy in the future, just not yet. Currently it has nothing to offer that isn't done better and with more variety by Nintendo or Microsoft

THERE IS MORE THAN 115 MILLION PS2 WORLD WIDE.HOW MANY COPY DID THAT GAME ? I DID NOT HEAR IT REACHED 2 MILLION.OK LET SAY 3 MILLION THAT IS LESS THAN 2.6% COMPARED TO OVER 30% FOR GEARS OF WAR = MICROSOFT UNDERSTAND THE CUSTOMER FAR MORE THAN SONY .

I see the Sony fans have some issues with this news. Not hard to tell why. LOL

So what if it you think the elite is going to flop. M$ is supporting the gamers over there and putting up a decent fight. Last time I checked the Japan PS3 vs 360 sales rate was 2:1. Not bad for the 360 in Japanese PS3 territory. You guys even live in Europe or the US this dose not even effect you directly ya know.

I dont think this will help 360 sales in there. And if they are going to launch it in Japan, why do it so late?
