Posted on September 3, 2008, Jonathan Xbox 360 US Price Cut is Now Official
We’ve heard numerous rumblings before that Microsoft was slashing the price of the the Xbox 360 in the US — following the announcement of similar price cuts in Japan and Europe — but now it’s finally been made official. The new pricing is set to take effect on September 5th and will drop the price of the Arcade model well below that of the Wii. That may not help MS to compete with Nintendo completely, but it sure makes a case for them taking on Sony. The different SKUs will now be priced as:
- Xbox 360 Arcade – $199
- Xbox 360 – $299
- Xbox 360 Elite – $399
Hey, $200? For that amount, maybe I could get a new Xbox 360 while I’m waiting for my red-ringed one to get back from the shop (*grumble grumble grumble*).
