    "Less than six months ago, Microsoft reduced the price of the Xbox 360 in Australia. It got pretty cheap, especially the Arcade, which dropped below the price of a Wii. Well, with Christmas coming up, Microsoft have decided to cut the price of the 360 again. All three consoles will benefit, the Arcade going from AUD$350 to AUD$300, the Pro from AUD$499 to AUD$399 and the Elite from AUD$649 to AUD$549. As you can see, those are some hefty cuts, which put the Arcade a full AUD$100 cheaper than the Wii and the Pro at almost half the price of a PS3. Interestingly, Microsoft Australia also say that, continuing a trend that began in August, the Arcade is still the top-selling 360 console in the country. Goes to show, you can include all the HDDs, HDs, wi-fis and waggles in the world in a console, and they'll mean nothing next to the bottom line."

    I sure hope Canada gets a price cut soon.

    The moment they get a price cut in Canada, the moment I'll buy one....

    Yeah it's crazy. The best deal I've seen is Kmart.

    60GB Xbox 360 with Kung Fu Panda and Lego Indy game for only $449.

    If I didn't already have a 360 I'd be at Kmart right now lol.

    This is so tempting. I could finally get all the games I have missed out on.
