Xbox 360 Elite is black
Japan to get upgraded Xbox 360 in October

The Xbox 360 Elite is set to launch in Japan on October 11, months after the North American release.

The improved version of the Xbox 360 console, with the added features of HDMI output and a 120GB hard drive, is distinguished from its previous, lesser versions by an all-black finish and matching accessories. The Xbox 360 Elite model launched in the U.S. in late April and in Canada in early May.

“Xbox 360 Elite joins the ranks of our Core and Pro offerings that provide consumers with the flexibility to purchase the version of Xbox that best fits their unique needs,” said Peter Moore, the head of Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business, for the U.S. launch. “Xbox 360 Elite joins the ranks of our Core and Pro offerings that provide consumers with the flexibility to purchase the version of Xbox that best fits their unique needs.”

Although Japanese gamers have to wait Xbox 360 Elite much longer for the upgraded console to arrive, they will be getting a considerable break on the price over their North American counterparts. The Xbox 360 Elite is set to retail in Japan for 47,800 yen, or about $389. In the U.S., the Xbox 360 Elite retails for $479.

It remains to be seen whether or not the improved features or relatively better value price of the Xbox 360 Elite will be enough to entice Japanese gamers to Microsoft’s console – which so far is ineffective in that country. Sales of Xbox 360 in Japan appear to be boosted by only the release of Japanese-made RPGs such as Blue Dragon and Trusty Bell/Eternal Sonata.
