Microsoft Pushes Xbox One Sales in Japan with White Halo Bundle Discounted by $43

The Xbox One isn’t exactly doing very good in Japan, with weekly sales across the country dropped to 259 last week, according to Media Create, but Microsoft isn’t giving up, and today they announced that the white limited edition Xbox One bundle with Halo: The Master Chief Collection is going to launch in the archipelago of the rising sun on February 19th for 39,980 yen plus taxes, with a 5,000 yen discount on top of it.

White Halo Bundle?..Is this coming to US and other regions? they would be wise to launch this in Europe too.

Zero news about other regions.

Bundle looks cool but Microsoft clearly don't understand what type of games the Japanese like.

Hint: Japanese are not fond of FPS's.

Now if they release that bundle in the USA and Europe...

I think that in general the Japanese are not fond of the XB1. Which is why I find it odd that Microsoft didn't release this on the US.

I dont understand why they even make an effort in Japan especially with the way the XB1 is selling there.

Nice bundle though.

id rather have a halo 5 guardians bundle in different colors of choice of choice with different character decals on them. one in the color of of master chiefs armor with either his picture or scratches and lines that are reminiscent of his battle tested armor or spartan john 117 on it somewhere, or a black and blue cortona xbox one with blue lines running through the design of the console just like her body, and a metallic gold xbox one for the arbiter and his halo 5 gold armor with a prophets bane going through it and all of the different xbox one's should have their own custom power on sound that reminds you of the character that the system was designed after. these would be collector boxes :)

If you said for $43 I would've jumped.

this should help push a few sales but nothing great

would have liked to have that bundle over here in the states.

i know its totaly different but didnt we get an article about a store having to cut 50% off all hardware,software &peripherals for the xbone to sell and not waste shelve space? i know thats an isolated case but japan isnt going to buy the xbone anytime soon.

A Halo bundle should be green..... .

It doesn't make sense to have a 'themed' console for a remake. Now, when Halo 5 releases this Nov, /then/ will be when the themed console releases.

... I'm probably going to be a stupid consumer and buy one even though my current XO works just fine. ; -;

Halo 5 Mjolnir edition Xbox One .
