I'm not a gamer by any means but I like to keep up-to-date on the latest happenings when it comes to consoles. I was catching up this morning and I came across this article. Firstly, why isn't the XBOX 360 this cheap in the US? Secondly, why isn't the XBOX 360 coming out in the US with these features (I know it says it will be available but why does Japan get it first)? I can certainly understand Sony releasing products in Japan first, but Microsoft has always released new products in the US first. Can someone shed some light on this?
