Microsoft Corp. said on Wednesday it would launch an HD DVD player for its
Xbox 360 game console on November 22 in Japan for 20,790 yen ($177), matching rival Sony Corp.’s PlayStation 3 in high-definition DVD functions.

Sony’s PS3, which is set to hit store shelves in Japan and North America in November, will be equipped with a competing Blu-ray optical disc player.

Nintendo Co. Ltd. plans to offer its new game console, the Wii, in November in the United States, setting the stage for a three-way showdown in the nearly $30 billion video game market.
