Xbox 360 – Elite Is Taking Over From The Pro – Price Drop Incoming

2 min read


Just recently we posted a rumour that Microsoft were possibly going to be dropping the Xbox 360 Pro altogether, leaving only the Arcade and Elite SKU’s behind.

Well it seems like the rumour has become a reality as anyone looking at the image above will see that an upcoming catalogue from a company called Meijer has already created the artwork for Xbox 360 Elites at Pro prices.

The best part is that the price drop is right around the corner.

This means that anyone who buys a new Xbox 360 will be given the wonderful gift of the 120GB hard drive, that I so dearly need right now. The other good news is that this catalogue dates the price drop for the end of August, so it really is just a few weeks away.

While I am happy about all of this, I must ask… Can I still get it in white?

(We still don’t have official confirmation from Microsoft though and in the case that this is some sort of bad-ass typo, we will keep this one filed under “rumour”.)

    I wonder if there are any local retailers that have started getting information about the price cut?

    The next question is are we going to be seeing this price cut?? 300 USD is approximatly R2400 (when i checked) are we going to be seeing that kind of price here. Would be nice!

    Hopfully we see the price change soon i am itching to buy an Elite Console.

    R2400 – never. We will be shafted again.

    We should hope for R3000

  • I think it is a good idea of lowering the price. Now, all we need is the other versions lowered in price too. 😉
