The next generation console from Microsoft (although I am quite sure that it is about time that descriptive term is dropped, considering how it should fall under current generation already), the Xbox One, is touted to arrive in Japan later this September 4th, which is still a fair amount of time away. Still, we finally have gotten hold of the official price details, with the console itself retailing for 39,980 yen ($392) while those who would want the Xbox One to arrive bundled with Kinect will have to fork out 49,980 yen ($490 after conversion.
In addition, Microsoft also did make the announcement that up to four dozen game developers throughout the region have expressed their interest when it comes to rolling out software as well as games for the Xbox One, which is an encouraging thing considering there are already available titles on the console. Some of the titles that will be made available in the Land of the Rising Sun would include Ryse: Son of Rome, Forza Motorsport 5, Quantum Break, Sunset Overdrive, Halo 5: Guardians and Dead Rising 3.
Do you think that the near one year delay when it comes to releasing the Xbox One in Japan would hurt the prospects of this particular console gaining back some of its market share? [Press Release]
