Xbox 360 price drops

Now there’s no reason not to own a video game system… unless you’re a turtle or some other small money-less creature.

Microsoft Australia have today gone and done something a little unexpected with the announcement that their Xbox 360 models are all dropping in price.

It works like this:

  • Xbox 360 Arcade drops from an RRP of $349 to the new price of $299
  • Xbox 360 with the hard drive (technically the “Pro” model) drops from $499 to the hot price of $399
  • And the Xbox 360 Elite clad all in black falls from $649 one hundred bucks less to the new price of $549

Which makes the Xbox 360 cheaper than both the Nintendo Wii and the Sony PlayStation 3 for sure… and incredibly hard to resist at Christmas.

We’ll be covering some of the great games landing on the 360 this season as well as some of the less expensive games that still rock you can find on Xbox Live Arcade coming up so if you haven’t got one yet… it’s only a matter of time.
