To make way for the new Xbox 360 hitting Australia on July 1, many retailers are frantically offloading their unsold Xbox 360 Elite stock. This means cheap Elites!
Remember: the new Xbox 360 (RRP $449) is smaller, runs cooler, comes with a 250GB hard drive and built-in wi-fi as standard. The Elite, uh, does not.
JB Hi-Fi was first to slash the Elite price, as we reported last week. There you can get yourself an Elite plus five games (Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts & Bolts, BioShock, Forza 3, Halo 3: ODST and Halo Wars) for $299.
This week, Dick Smith has jumped on the bandwagon, offering an Elite plus two games (LEGO Batman and Pure) for $249.
GAME has the less impressive price of $259 for just-the-console-thanks.
And at EB Games, you can pay either $317 for the 120GB Elite plus four games (Fable II GOTY, Forza 3, Halo 3: ODST and Halo Wars) or $369 for the 250GB Elite plus three games (Fable II GOTY, Halo 3 and Splinter Cell: Conviction).
They're the best deals we've spotted. Have you seen anything better?
And are any of you thinking about picking up a cheap Elite instead of the new Xbox 360?
