With the Wii U around the corner and Sony's new PS3 model hitting stores, it makes sense that Microsoft would want to make its own splash in the lead up to Christmas. And now it has — with a pretty substantial price drop. Across the board.
From October 4, Microsoft's pricing for Xbox products will be as follow...
• Kinect Sensor, $149 (save $50) • 4GB Xbox 360, $199 (save $50) • 4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect, $299 (save $100) • 250GB Xbox 360 $299 (Save $150) • Limited edition consoles $399 (save $50)
"This is the time to buy an Xbox 360," said Kimberley Francis, Head of Interactive Entertainment, Microsoft Australia. "The Xbox has never been more affordable and it continues to evolve to offer even more value for Australians."
That's a pretty attractive price point.
