JAPAN: 360 price cut confirmed

As suggested by MCV yesterday, Microsoft has replicated its recent moves in both Europe and the US by dropping the price of Xbox 360 hardware in Japan.

And, like in North America, the platform holder has not increased the price of its Arcade SKU – a move that seems to have been reserved exclusively for Europe.

Kotaku reports that the price of an Xbox 360 Elite has dropped from YEN 39,800 to YEN 29,800 – a discount of just over $100. The Arcade’s RRP remains at YEN 19,800.

The price of the Xbox 360 Pro has been declared as ‘open’, meaning retailers are free to charge what they like to run down stocks of the soon to be extinct model.
