Xbox to Reach Japan after US

Microsoft is preparing to announce a release date and pricing information for launch of Xbox in Japan, but isn’t promising that the console will arrive before the end of the year in time for the Japanese holiday season.
The company set a date of November 8 for the North American launch in May, but didn’t set dates for other markets. Yoshio Hongo, senior manager of public relations for Microsoft in Japan, characterized the eventual launch date as, “around the same time of...or not too far behind...the US launch,” but wouldn’t say if the launch would come before the end of the year.
