    Re: News - Microsoft confirms European Xbox 360 price cuts

    Xbox360 and probably at least 3 games for £200? I'm sold =)

    MS are right in that I think this is where they will start to get some volume sales..I have not bought one yet due to the cost (talking £250 really for the console + a bunch of games and a second controller) but that £30 or so drop makes the difference. Should fit in rather nicely alongside my wii

    Now if only some retailers would drop prices a few days early to save me the wait...*hint to scan*

    Also worth noting that these are Microsoft's list prices. For as long as I can remember, a selection of online retailers (Play.com for example) have offered the Xbox 360 consoles for £10 less than list.

    So, I'm guessing £119.99 for the Arcade and £159.99 for the standard model in a few weeks time.

    That wasn't the official press release

    The release actually states that the prices are the ERP (estimated retail price) so will likely be lower/bundled

    I got a copy of it from the head of the UK xbox guy first thing this morning fyi

    This does make it silly not to get one. Although just having bought an HDTV I'm not in the market for one this year. Maybe January, in time for the next price drop.

    Trouble is all your save games will be on one console - unless you use a memory stick. Not a bad idea though!

    Re: News - Microsoft confirms European Xbox 360 price cuts

    Couldn't you just move the HDD between 360's as required? in which case a 360 arcade would do (unless you're specifically after the bigger HDD in which case it's just a case of completing old games on the old HDD but starting all new games on the new HDD phasing out the use of the old HDD).
