Microsoft has given up its first Xbox console in Japan. Starting March 3, original Xbox owners will no longer enjoy support for their consoles.
The decision affect all original Xbox consoles, no matter if they are still under warranty or not.
That's sour news for Japanese buyers, but the Redmond company packed the announcement with a nice deal to sweeten things up. The good news is that Xbox owners will be able to change their old consoles with brand new Xbox 360's at no charge.
