Microsoft To Ship Low-Price Xbox in Japan

Microsoft said Friday it will offer a low-priced version of its Xbox 360 video game console in Japan in November as it braces itself for a battle against new machines from Sony and Nintendo.

Microsoft plans to offer Xbox 360 Core System, which comes with a wired controller and does not include a hard disk drive, for 29,800 yen ($256) on Nov. 2, a little more than a week before Sony's launch of its PlayStation 3 (PS3) console.

The story is too old to be commented.
