Microsoft will release new Xbox 360 console little earlier than the launch of Sony PS3 - Mp4 Converter

Updated September 30,2006

 Microsoft is looking to steal some of the PS3's launch thunder (not that Sony isn't do a fine job of borking it up themselves) in Japan by releasing the Core version of its Xbox 360 console on November 2, just a few days before the Sony PS3's launch. Right now, only the Premium edition (the "real" one) is available in Japan, which costs about $324 and all of 24 people have purchased. The Core version of Xbox 360 console will retail for $255, but won't include all the same goodies that the Premium offers, like a hard drive and headset. The Core version of Xbox 360 will be approximately half the price of the PlayStation 3.

While the Core version may be, well, crippled, it will be bundled with two games, Project Gotham Racing 3 and Ninety-Nine Nights, further whetting Japanese gamers' appetites.

Microsoft will continue to sell the Premium edition of the Xbox 360 even after the release of Core version Xbox 360. - Nicholas Deleon
