    Microsoft said Monday it will launch a new version of its Xbox 360 game console in Japan on March 6. The company said the model, which targets new users, was launched in the U.S. at the end of last year. In Japan, its Y27,800 price tag will match that of existing models, but it will come equipped with more extras, including an extra 256MB memory unit, wireless controller and game pack. Microsoft's belated release of its latest console in Japan comes as the Xbox 360 continues to be outsold by Nintendo Co.'s Wii and Sony Corp.'s PlayStation 3 in the country.

    The upgrades sound good. But will the price go down so I can buy it?

    This is futile in Japan.

    Seems to me that MS is trying to compete with Sony in Japan because Sony has so much market control in Japan. Will be good for the citizens over there I'm guessing.
