A month ago, Microsoft announced that the Xbox One would launch in Japan on September 4th and today the company revealed the day one pricing of the console in that country, which will be available with and without the Kinect sensor.
In a press release from Microsoft"s Japan offices, the company revealed that the Xbox One without the Kinect add-on will be sold for 39,980 yen ($392); Microsoft will also bundle Kinect with the Xbox One in another SKU that will be sold for 49,980 yen ($490).
Microsoft will also publish many of its Xbox One launch titles in Japan as well, including Forza Motorsport 5, Dead Rising 3 and Ryse: Son of Rome. Square Enix will offer many of its Xbox One games for the Japanese audience, including Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition and Thief. It will also be the Japanese publisher for Activision"s hit first person shooter Call of Duty Ghosts.
While the Xbox One is currently sold in just 13 markets around the world, Microsoft will start selling the console in over 20 new markets in September, including China, although specific launch dates for most of those countries have yet to be announced.
