Xbox 360 price drop nearly confirmed

53 second read

You have all heard about it by now and the evidence for the $50 price drop is mounting…  The two images above are from Walmart and Toys R Us… GameStop branches have also been told to now offer less for Xbox 360 trade ins which could be construed to mean they know a price drop is coming.

Personally I am disappointed that Microsoft hasn’t gone for the kill with a $100 price drop but a price drop is always good. There is also no reason to believe we will be left out so expect to be able to pick up a Xbox 360 pro for R2999 R3300 and a Xbox 360 Core for R1999 R2400 at the end of August.

R2400 for a next gen gaming console with a rumoured memory card bundled in is a very good deal especially since they are still trying to sell PS2’s for R1499 in South Africa.

[Update] Bad maths on my side.

    At least its a “real” price drop and not some old stock sale. Do you still think MS can sneak in another cut when Halo 3 is out?

    I doubt we’ll see another one before Halo 3 comes out… We could possibly expect some great bundles in time for Christmas though….

    Yeah, pity all they can do with old stock is surf the net. Shame.

    Oh and another thing, with the new 65nm dies I doubt they will have the same issues as their older 90nm bretheren. 😉

    At least you can surf the net. Or play NGB, Resistance, Motostorm, CoD3, The Darkness, Oblivion, R6, VF5…. not to mention the TONS of AAA backwards compatible PS2 and PS1 games….

    Mmm.. playing 6 month old games. How exciting. Only NGS graces the PS3 with some decency of late. R6k to play PS2 games? Hardly worth it. 2008 will hopefuly bring better games as current previews of Lair & Heavenly Sword are kinda weak.
