Forget all that talk that Microsoft is leaving Japan! Because on September 28, Xbox Japan is launching a new Xbox 360 250GB bundle that includes Monster Hunter Frontier Online.

Priced at ¥29,800, which is the normal price for a 250GB Xbox 360 in Japan, the bundle comes with Monster Hunter Frontier Online codes that allow for some free play and in-game loot—that will hopefully lead to you signing up for a Frontier Online subscription.

Unlike other Monster Hunter games, Monster Hunter Frontier Online is a subscription based online game. This bundle offers a free taste.

It's like Xbox Japan is taking a page out of the drug dealer's handbook.
