Microsoft Slashing Xbox 360 Price In Japan By Up To 30%

Japan went crazy with Tales of Vesperia fever when the game released in their territory, selling out every Xbox 360 console in Japan. Microsoft is working on getting more Xbox 360’s into Japan due to the recent sell-out.

When they return, however, they will be a whole lot cheaper. I’m talking 30% cheaper. The Arcade 360 will have its price slashed by Â¥8,000 to Â¥19,800 (USD$182), the Pro will be reduced by Â¥5,000 (from Â¥34,800 to Â¥29,800/USD$274) and the Elite reduced by Â¥8,000 (from Â¥68,000 to Â¥60,000/USD$552).

Will more Xbox 360’s sell out?
