    Lets hope these kind of deals become common amonst supermarkets and shops. I won't a Xbox 360 but am unwilling to pay much more than £130 for one with a harddrive and HDMI out put

    might upgrade my 360 tomorrow then seeing as i get 10% off and its old, noisyand close to death

    that means a brand new 360 for a cool 90quid. not bad at all :-)

    not that our store ever has much stock of 360 consoles.

    Microsoft are going to make a killing in sales if the price cuts spread to everywhere.
    But I am sorely getting tempted to pick up a wii at that price.

    Re: News - Confirmed : Massive Xbox 360 and Wii price cuts to spur retail war

    Which one would be ther better buy? I'm quite tempted, PC gaming is being killed, so consoles seem like a good purchase.

    If the 360 Premium 60gb becomes 130 pounds, then ill be very tempted to get one!

    Definately going to be looking at another 360 if the current price falls to around the £130 mark for the 60gb model Lets hope more retailers fall in line with the competition

    And the war goes on!

    Going to be an unusual Christmas for Sony to not be on the top.
    Awesome for the consumer, awesome for gaming.
    Long let the deals continue!

    Re: News - Confirmed : Massive Xbox 360 and Wii price cuts to spur retail war

    This is crazy. Less than £150 for a decent console (60GB) if I didn't have to pay my TV off *shakes fist*

    if they are like this now, imagine January.

    That's crazy cheap. Might even be worth picking up a second 360 for the bedroom at that price!

    I've been thinking of getting another 360 and the price now is making me think of nipping to Sainsbury's tomorrow
