    This could be getting somewhere entertaining. [​IMG]
    Let's see if Microsoft can boost their sales with this price drop. Although they need some good new exlusiv games to boost their sales a lot. hm.

    The North American market already had a recent price drop. At least here in Canada they did (well not the Arcade bundle, but who buys an Arcade?!).

    XBOX 360; Was $399.99, Now $349.99 (CND funds)
    XBOX 360 ELITE; Was $499.99, Now $449.99 (CND funds)

    There is a new 360 SKU, but no-one really knows what it's for ... lot of speculation about a new model ... possibly with a different HD size ... would explain the price cut on existing models.

    Price drop here just seems to be to bring them more inline with US pricing.

    Elite $449.99
    Premium 360 $349.99
    Arcade $279.99

    Which is £223 , £173 and £139. Our prices now are now £259.99 for the elite , £199.99 for premium and £159.99 for arcade. Take into account the 17.5% tax [​IMG] and they are pretty much in line with the US prices. For US to get another drop would just take the piss.

    Don't forget, US prices are pre-tax ... they have their tax added at the checkout, whereas out VAT is added into the price already ... unless you are shopping at a wholesaler.

    If you buy your 360 online, there is no tax. You'll have to pay for shipping, but thats still way less.
