Microsoft cuts Xbox 360 price (msnbc.msn.com)

In a move that nobody seemed to expect, Microsoft is cutting prices on all X360 models, effective tomorrow (8/8/07).

Core: down $20 to $280
Premium: down $50 to $350
Elite: down $50 to $450

X360 is now your cheapest option (by $50) for HDMI out-of-the-box. And once the 60GB PS3ís disappear, it becomes a better option by $100 more.

Well played by MS. The price cut effectively negates Sony's recent one, and just in time for two blockbuster titles which are sure to be big sellers and movers of the system. The ball is once more in Sony's court.



Also looming large for Sony (and MS) is that Nintendo is currently making a profit on each Wii sold. As soon as they feel that their price advantage is sliding, they are well equipped for a price cut themselves.

So take your receipt in and tell them you want the discount. If they balk, bring in the system and "return" it then buy it again for the new price. Usually stores like Wal Mart will just give you the difference.

Not to be one of THOSE people, but can they really afford a price cut after posting a billion dollar loss for the division?
