Xbox One Gets a Price Drop in Japan

Microsoft’s Xbox One isn’t doing all that well in Japan- I mean, Xbox has never done well there, but the Xbox One is a special kind of not doing well there, with total sales of the entire family of systems not even having crossed half a million in the years since its launch.

Maybe in an attempt to actually get some units to move in the land of the rising sun, Microsoft has announced a price drop for the 1TB model of the Xbox One S. The price has dropped from 34,980 yen to 29,980 yen for the Forza Horizon 3 and Halo: The Master Chief Collection SKUs. The Minecraft SKU has dropped from 39,980 yen to 34,980 yen as well.
