Microsoft: Official price reduction of Xbox 360 Elite
Much is rumored about a possible cancelation of the Xbox 360 Pro which could go hand in hand with a price reduction of the top model Xbox 360 Elite. The latter has now been officially confirmed.
Microsoft has officially confirmed that their console will be available in only two versions from now on. The Xbox 360 Pro with its 60 GByte hard drive will disappear from the market little by little.
From today the price of the top model Xbox 360 Elite is cut by 50 Euro and will be available for just 250 Euro. For financial reasons the HDMI cable will not be included in the package anymore, the rest of the standard accessory remains constant, though. The Xbox 360 Arcade keeps the price of 200 Euro.
According to Microsoft the separation of entry-level and premium level will be clearer now. The reason for Microsoft to take this step is the latest price cut of the Sony PS3 Slim. Console fans will be pleased about the reduced prices - will Nintendo soon cut Wii prices, too?
