    This is not great news.

    It seems that Sony's machine is just £50 more than MS's finest offering.

    This is getting really interesting in the console wars.

    Re: News - Microsoft confirms Xbox 360 Elite price cut

    i am relieved i only got my elite a couple of months ago so its value hasn't plummeted. (and i got a hdmi cable with mine)

    I actually think this is a very smart price cut by microsoft, If they slashed the price hugely straight after the ps3 slim is released it says they are worried. This cut says we'll make it a little cheaper but sony were not worried we are holding our own in the console wars.

    Sony admit they will be selling at a loss again with their new price. I wonder if MS are in the same boat?

    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    I doubt it considering the age of the console and the number of revisions, at least they wont be making as big a loss as it's clear Sony are cutting out a lot to be able to have a cheaper console (USB ports, card reader, BC etc)

    That is slightly inaccurate, the Elite does include a HDMI cable. But to be honest you can pick one up for about £5 anyway.

    The PS3 is starting to look like a very tempting prospect....

    No it doesn't. As part of the "price cut" they have removed the HDMI and the Optical out dongle for it. So £30 saving for something MS sell for £35. Doesn't look to me like any sort of price cut with out the HDMI and dongle.

    It did, there not shipping them with HDMI cables anymore or the hybrid Component/composite cable.

    Anyway best bargain ive seen is the original 60GB for £250 on play.com
