Its only natural that we would expect Microsoft to hit back after the announcement of a slim PlayStation 3. After some believable rumors, and a few dodgy camera phone pictures Major Nelson has posted on twitter, it looks like the Xbox 360 Elite will receive a $100 price cut in the US.
Hit the jump for all the details.
“Starting Friday, August 28th (tomorrow) the price of the Xbox 360 Elite is getting a one-hundred dollar price cut in the United States.
Here is how the new pricing breaks down:
|Xbox 360 Elite||$399.99||now $299.99*|
|Xbox 360 Pro||$299.99||now $249.99* While supplies last|
|Xbox 360 Arcade||$199.99||$199.99*|
|* (ERP) Estimated retail price in the United States
Betcha didn’t see that coming…did you ?”
Seems like the Pro model is on the way out to leave only ‘high’ and ‘low’ end models of 360 available.
Xbox 360 Elite- $299
PlayStation 3- $299
