Broken Record? Manufacturers new RRP - will be this price everywhere within a few days.

You can beat the price now by going to PC World, Pricematch + 10% difference

£145 - collect it today.

Edited to include PC World Price match info: PC World pricematch certain online retailers , of which Amazon are one of them. Take a printout of the amazon page, a printout of the PC World pricematch guarantee (from their website), and prompt them at the till

Make sure you mention that they are supposed to knock 10% of the difference off too or they conveniently forget about it.

Amazon Price Drop Policy: If you have purchased an xbox within the last 30 days on Amazon at the previous price, give them a call and they will refund the difference back to you.

The rumours all provide a price in Euro's. I don't believe the RRP in £'s has been confirmed yet so not entirely sure how members are quoting this?

Which site confirmed this? Amazon saying the RRP is X isn't a confirmation imho as who's to say they haven't just taken the price in Euro's and converted that to a convieniant amount? Its the same as looking on many other sites to confirm product Y has an RRP of such and such and all the RRP's for Y differ across various suppliers.

Unless my eyes are failing me, it's gone back up to £190.

Indeed. Premium is also back up again to its £250 price. Me thinks they jumped the gun and "assumed" the RRP's for Europe would be applicable for here too?

Microsoft would of contacted retailers a week or two ago to let them know of the new price structure. That's why leaflets of the price cuts were being leaked last week, because the stores need this information to prepare advertisements.

Amazon know the new RRP, they've just jumped the gun a little and updated the item page a few days early.

Wednesday is price cut day I think, so expect the price to go back then

I am pretty sure the price cuts will happen this week - some retailers want to get in on the act before others do. I almost bought the Elite last week - when the guy in Game told me that I should wait a week or so. Also, I am glad I did not go for the ****tlewoods "20% off code" deal!

The original article which Engadget refer to is here: http://www.ftd.de/technik/medien_internet/:Microsoft%20Xbox/328040.html

You don't have to be able to read German - but you get the idea..

Everyone's Invited to Experience Xbox 360 as Microsoft Lowers Estimated Retail Price in Europe

With Estimated Retail Price Starting At €199.99/£159.99, Even More European Consumers Can Enjoy The Definitive High-Definition Gaming and Entertainment Experience

LONDON - Monday 10th March, 2008- Microsoft today announced it is lowering the estimated retail price (ERP) for its Xbox 360™ family of consoles in Europe. Now with an entry-level ERP of €199.99/£159.99, Xbox 360 is a mass market entertainment proposition with something to offer for every interest and budget.

From Friday, 14th March, Xbox 360, which includes a 20GB hard drive and one wireless controller, will have an ERP of €269.99/£199.99 – a saving of €80/£50 on the current ERP. The Xbox 360 Elite, which comes with a massive 120GB hard drive enabling consumers to store huge quantities of content downloaded from Xbox LIVE™ Marketplace as well as their own music, will have an ERP of €369.99/£259.99 – a saving of €80/£40. The Xbox 360 Arcade console, perfect for those wishing to make their first foray into the gaming and entertainment world of Xbox, will have an ERP of €199.99/£159.99 – a saving of €80/£20.

Xbox 360 is the number one next-gen console in EMEA, owning 42% of the market in terms of life-to-date revenue. Xbox 360 continues to enjoy the highest software attach rate of any game console in Europe with more than 7.0 games sold per console (PS3: 3.8; Wii 3.5) after 26 months on the market .

The new ERPs are part of Microsoft’s ongoing strategy to open up the ultimate in high-definition gaming and entertainment to an even wider audience, with an offering for everyone:

* Best Choice for Families:
o Xbox 360 grows as your family does, offering games and entertainment for every member of the family – from movies to games to music videos.
o With over 150 3+ rated games and unparalleled parental controls, parents can feel good about their kids playing Xbox 360
* Most Diverse Entertainment:
o Xbox 360 offers great choice in high-definition entertainment
o Xbox Live Video Store offers a wide variety of movies to download, both in HD and SD, enabling great entertainment in the living room at the press of a button
o It’s easy to view and enjoy video and photos on Xbox 360 as well as connect wirelessly to share content with a Windows Media Center PC
* The Best Games:
o There will be over 1,000 games available on Xbox 360 by the end of the year, with something for every skill level, interest and taste.
o New community games allow gamers to sample the best of indie games, providing innovative new ways to play and enjoy
o Blockbuster franchises like Grand Theft Auto IV, with exclusive downloadable episodes on Xbox LIVE, and Rock Band make Xbox 360 the place to be this Spring
o Xbox 360 exclusives for 2008 include Fable 2, Gears of War 2 and Too Human, setting new standards for next-generation gaming

“Xbox 360 is now mass market in Europe,” said Chris Lewis, Vice President, Microsoft Interactive Entertainment Business Europe. “We have reached and surpassed several key milestones that form part of our long term strategic plan to achieve critical mass in Europe; and our portfolio now offers the kind of mainstream entertainment experiences that secure wider appeal for Xbox 360. These factors allow us to execute on our strategy to widen the market for Xbox 360, as planned.

“We continue to offer intense, immersive gaming experiences for gamers – but now we’re priced in a way that will allow new consumers to find out for themselves why Xbox 360 is the ultimate in high-definition entertainment.” said Lewis. “History shows that €199/£159 is the price point where a console’s audience begins to expand, and with these new ERPs in place we’re ready to bring more consumers into the Xbox 360 world.”


Keep an eye out for Amazon to cut the price... AGAIN :-D
