Price drops announced by MS for today.

They will be this price everywhere by the end of today/in the next few days and im sure there will be some better offers around.

Edits:

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

£184 - collect it today.

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 price drop will be tomorrow, but can this price get any lower? Its only £11 more than the cost of a wii and is a way better deal.

Amazon already had one of the lowest prices before the drop.

What will the new RRP be? £199.99?

They just updated it to say that now, so only a saving of £10 but still really cheap. :thumbsup:

Excellent price, voted hot.

The price drop is NOT tomorrow. It IS TODAY.

From gizmodo.com:

The Financial Times Germany has published a story saying Microsoft will … The Financial Times Germany has published a story saying Microsoft will be knocking down the Xbox 360 price on Monday (03/10/08.) The price cuts are to take place across Europe and will supposedly see the Xbox 360 Arcade dropped from €280 ($432) to €199 ($307), while the Xbox 360 Pro will apparently be slashed to €299 ($461) from €349 ($538.)



At current conversion rates, €349 = £189 exactly.

This is not a hot price, it is the new manufacturers RRP. I am 100% certain by within the next few days there will be bundles/offers with vouchers/quidco that are much better than simply being the manufacturers RRP.

Also, take a look at the Arcade on Amazon. Same situation, price drop to roughly new manufacturers RRP.

New price = £149.99

Original Poster

The Elite is down to £249.99 too, I know it's an official price drop but worth posting for those that don't know.

Plus, as of right now it is the best price available. Other sites will drop their prices over the next few days.

How about you give the full story rather than just excerpts? The above is just a rumour, but some places may actually have dropped their prices.

gizmodo.com/365…row

If you look through the other rumours, there's even one that says there's further cuts by March 14th...

"The internet is aflame today with rumors that all versions of the 360 will get a €50 ($76) price cut in Europe by March 14th—which would make the Arcade system cheaper than the Wii in the UK. With any luck this could be a sign of things to come in the US"

gizmodo.com/364…ing

I say, just wait and see... no point rushing.

The cuts have are out already, there is nothing to wait for.

These are the RRP for the consoles now. Amazon has marked £10 off each of these prices.

Xbox 360 Arcade - £159.99
Xbox 360 Pro - £199.99
Xbox 360 Elite - £259.99

why could it be a sign of things to come in the us?
even with the price drop we still pay more than the usa

£175 rrp in usa
£199 rrp in uk

Sigh. Amazons price drops, and quoting the actual new RRPs in their listings, proves this is not a rumour but is fact.

Seems we do agree on at least your final point though, wait and see guys, this one is not going away any time in the future and someone will be releasing offers on the new RRP any day.

The other point, is that you could always get PC World to pricematch + 10% this offer if you went for it today before they've changed their prices, meaning you could get it for £184 for the premium.

Do PC World price match instore on online prices ?

Banned

Yep, they certainly do.

Only certain retailers though, of which Amazon are one of them. Take a printout of the amazon page, a printout of their pricematch guarantee, 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.

I think you are misreading Amazon... that or I am... and if I am... sorry for the numerous replies.

amazon.co.uk/Xbo…8-2
RRP: £199.99
Price: £189.99 & this item Delivered FREE in the UK with Super Saver Delivery. See details and conditions
You Save: £10.00 (5%)

RRP is still listed as £199.99, but the SALE price is £189.99. Don't get the two confused.

The gizmodo site referenced is the US version as well. No mention on the UK site at all nor many other publications. It could possibly be that amazon has a deal with microsoft and is offering a price cut.

If £189.99 was the NEW RRP... amazon would have listed it as RRP as opposed to a strike out on the 199.99. Because it would be construed as false advertising by saying you are saving £10.00 (5%) when you're not saving anything at all if £189.99 IS RRP.

(Then again... RRP is ONLY "recommended" retail price... )

Voted HOT ...

.... but I bought mine from Amazon for £40 more last week! Grrr. Thankfully, a quick call with them and they've refunded me the difference. Fantastic service by Amazon

Nice price

what should i take with me for price match ? a print out of the price on amazon or what ? Cheers

Banned

Printout of the price on amazon, and a printout of the PC World price match guarantee from their website.

There is a huge thread about the price match guarantee as well on here if you do a search.

Hope that helps!

its expired now, back up to £250 for premium

€349 = £265 actually. Think you prob used the $ > £ conversion

LOL! Guess it wasn't RRP after all seeing as they reverted back so quickly!

You'll all be aware that the prices have now dropped back down again and that the Premium is back to £189.99 with free delivery.

I added the Wireless Entertainment Pack 2 (which includes a wireless controller, Forza 2 and Viva Pinata). Nornal price allegedly £100. Amazon give you this for £25 if you buy any of the 360's at the same time. Actually, they knock £75 off your order.

I'm a Channel Islander, and as the Channel Island friendly company that they are, I got this little bundle of Xbox loveliness for:

Xbox 360 Premium - £161.69
Wireless Entertainment Pack 2 - £85.11

LESS - £75.00 discount for the deal

TOTAL including delivery - £171.80!!!!

I have been holding off buying a 360 for ages, but really could not resist finally at this price!!
