|Xbox 360 sales sink to new low in JapanPublished by patto on Saturday, September 23, 2006
Microsoft's Xbox 360 sales sunk to a new low in recent Japan sales charts.
Media Create Co. on Friday reported that the Xbox successor sold 928 units in Japan.
The 1-year-old system was outsold by hardware like the Nintendo DS, PSP, PS2, Game Boy Advance SP, and Game Boy Micro in the same period.
The Xbox 360 typically sells around 1,100 units in week-to-week hardware figures.
Microsoft this week is showcasing 110 new high-definition games, including the highly anticipated RPG Blue Dragon, Infinite Undiscovery and Namco's RPG Eternal Sonata.
To help boost sales it will introduce the Xbox 360 Core System to Japan for $256 U.S.
In addition, the company will drop the Xbox 360 HD DVD drive to Japan for $170 on Nov. 17, the day Sony Corp. releases the Blu-ray equipped Playstation 3.
Microsoft has sold the least amount of Xbox 360 units in Japan. The machine has sold well in the U.S. and Europe markets on strong action and sports offerings.
