Xbox maker gets serious about penetrating Japan

Microsoft (MSFT: news, chart, profile), which is scheduled to roll out the game console in Japan on February 22 with a 34,800 yen ($263) price tag, is pinning its hopes on the Internet capabilities of its Xbox game machine and has been looking for partners to develop Internet games for the console.
