It wasn’t so long ago that we last heard rumors of an Xbox 360 price cut, but unfortunately, we only received a glorified clearance sale to make way for the new 60GB Premium model. Now, we’re hearing grumblings of a further discount, for $399, $299, and $199, which will bring the cheapest model below the price of a Wii.
Not that there’s a good reason why Microsoft shouldn’t drop the price, the new model was released pretty recently, and you have to feel for the buyers who would lose money in the process. Still, life moves on, and the console continues to look that much more appealing for the rest of us.
While it seems to be all but a sure thing that all three Xbox 360 SKUs will be getting a price cut on September 7th, if you need a bit more reassurance, you can now take comfort in this apparently authentic Best Buy ad provided by a helpful tipster, which should be making an appearance in paper form just in time for the big day. Just like Radio Shack’s, this one lists the Arcade, Pro and Elite for $199, $299, and $399, respectively, and, unsurprisingly, there’s no mention of a motion controller with any of ’em.
