Microsoft launched the Xbox 360 in Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan yesterday, causing productivity to plummet among the hard working and good at math. Gamerscore Blog has pics of the kick-off events.

In a surprise move, the Xbox 360s being sold in this region (see photo at right) are apparently 10 feet tall, meaning the DVDs must be the size of trampolines—tough to fit through the door of the average Hong Kong apartment. This explains why gamers in this part of the world only have to pay $30.90 for Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter.
