Price cut coming to Xbox 360 in Asia
After first slashing the price of their Xbox 360 console in Europe last month Microsoft has announced that they will be slashing the price of the Premium model with a 20GB hard drive in four Asian markets:
- Singapore: nearly 20 percent off
- Taiwan: 17 percent
- Hong Kong: 11 percent
- South Korea: 5 percent
After enjoying a 68 percent revenue boost in their first quarter of 2008 Microsoft’s entertainment and devices business is no doubt looking to keep that trend going by in creasing the console’s penetration in these traditionally tough markets.
