It was expected to be announced at E3 this year but after the lack lustre showing of both Nintendo and Sony I wouldn’t be suprised if they had cut this off the announcement list on purpose as well.
A leaked image is showing that
we the Americans can expect to receive a huge price cut on the Xbox 360 Arcade to $199 as of the 7th of September. For a long time now people have been talking about $199 as the magic number and if they can honestly sell the things for that price while the PS3 is still over $400 you have to expect a mass take up.
It is rumoured that the Pro will drop to $299 and the Elite to $399 following this.
Let me say now that you mustn’t expect a local price cut to follow. We have already had our cut this year. The same goes for everyone in the EU and Australia as well.
