Microsoft tries to woo Japanese with Core 360

updated 11:45 am EDT, Fri September 8, 2006

Japan gets Core 360

Unavailable until now for some reason, the Japanese will finally get their hands on the low-cost, feature-stripped Core 360 on November 2nd. SPOnG cites a retail price of 29,800 yen. The timing of Microsoft's move is probably no coincidence, since both the Wii and PS3 should be out in the country by November's end. The PS3 in particular will likely sell out before meeting demand. Moreover, dismal sales of the Premium 360 may have Microsoft desperate for some means of breaching the Japanese market. To achieve its price the Core system dumps features like an included hard drive or headset.
