Ace Combat 6, Lost Planet: Colonies Packed With Xbox 360s For The Holidays

By Spencer . October 20, 2009 . 12:38am


Microsoft has a holiday bundle or value pack as it says on the box just for Japan. Their bundle comes with an Xbox 360 Elite, 120 GB hard drive, controller, headset, Ace Combat 6 and Lost Planet: Colonies for 29,980 yen $329.


Ace Combat 6 again? Japan got a pack with Beautiful Katamari and Ace Combat 6 last year. Even though it’s the “incomplete”, a Tales of Vesperia / Lost Odyssey bundle would probably be more tempting overseas.


Our Xbox 360 holiday pack contains Pure, Lego Batman, and an Xbox 360 Elite for $299.99.

    I can´t understand why Microsoft still focus on japanese market when they know very well that 360 is almost dead in Japan so investing on it is like a big hole in the pocket for them.

    I Think that now they has conquered the US market, they should focus on Europe and release

      From the robust updates Xbox does on Jpn Live, one probably can’t tell the small install base of 360. I thought it’s gradually doing better? W/ the combination of exclusive arcade shmup ports/ JRPGs / simulation / western RPG/FPS/TPS? I watch the new Inside Xbox videos every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, & Sunday. They’re doing a great job of interviewing creators, demoing and introducing new games. Hikari-chan was so cute playing Forza 3 and Bayonetta (BTW, the 360 demo had a different stage, it generally looked crisper and the animation seems to be faster, I played it better w/ the 360 controller too). I’ve said it time and again, Sony’s Christina Lee from Pulse seems so boring reading from a teleprompter, while Hikari-chan and Uchizawa-san genuinely seem to enjoy and actually play games. I dunno, to me I just really like the sense of community from Xbox Live, I was surprised there are still Jpn players playing Wartech Senko no Ronde the other day.

      Since my Jpn 360 was just fixed and shipped back to me from Texas, I have no immediate need of another Jpn 360. But I do want to upgrade to a quieter HDMI down the road when a good enough bundle comes out w/ the 250 Gb HDD (not modern warfare 2). Both my 120Gb & 20Gb are constantly running out of space.

      • I watch the Japanese Inside XBOX videos too! Though not as often as you. I’ll be honest; they even made GoW2 look amazingly fun after I had all but filed it away for eternity.

        I wouldn’t mind picking up this bundle to change over to an HDMI version. Anyone interested in buying a J360? Hahaha.

        “I thought it’s gradually doing better?”

        Compared to the first Xbox, yeah. However, sales have declined lately, so it can be hardly called a success, even in the wake of the first Xbox.

        • In my own sick, twisted little world in my head I judge a systems success based on MY preferences. =) So 360 has been quite successful concerning their Japanese market if only because I like the games that have been coming out over there in my head [obviously not the reality though]. I feel the biggest part is Xenophobia. There is really no excuse, otherwise. Sadly, the hardcore niche “gamer-elite” in Japan can’t keep this system afloat alone. Us importers are probably half of their sales sometimes. >_>

            I wish I could import a japanese 360, if only necause of all those shmups. However, I just used all my remaining money on a japanese white Saturn… well, that’s pretty good too, I guess.

          • Good buy. =) At least you don’t have to worry about a J360 for Mushihime-sama Futari.
