Well........Thats good competition for Microsoft!

Sure I read in one of 360 mags summat along the lines of price cuts in october

Core- 150 quid
Premium - between 200 and 230
Elite- 280

I'll try to find article.

You can find Premiums now for around £200 maybe more but with free games etc. I doubt we'll see much of a price drop.

Thats £200 but thats just a sale or somthing

Micro$oft RRP is still £279

There will be a price drop they still want to dominate dont they?

I can't though.

Where?

I'm not doing your work for you :P Got mine for £202 with Pro Ev 6 a few months back

They still want to dominate but the shops already have prices low, I see in my crystal ball that the really cheap places will stay the same price with the normal shops coming down to the £250 level if there is a price drop.

The final price has little to do with Microsoft

Yeah i would of loved to know where as well lol

Well the one I got was this one: amazon.co.uk/Xbo…1-6

However the company I got it from aren't doing it anymore however there is one there which would work out £220 for a new one and a game

There is also a Core model with Fifa, a faceplate and a football for £172 delivered

Thanks for looking Robotochan but the person who's selling has got 79% feedback. In my opinion too risky...

By the looks of it most if not all the negative feedback is because of slow delivery but yeah you are probably best keeping an eye out on the Hot Deals part of the forum.

What happens with pricedrops though, is companies can then offer better priced bundles e.g the choicesuk premium bundle with 4 games and 2 controllers was under £300 for several months (it's expired now though) but now that the price has dropped even further, we'll see some better bundle packages in the very near future.

The prices found at Amazon Marketplace aren't actually a retailer but an individual who could run off with your money or offer grey imports.

I can't? I've looked on that Amazon link but 79%.. Rather not take the risk.

True realfriendlyman but at the same time they could use the price cut to regain some of the profit they have lost by selling the system cheaper than everywhere else.

As I said earlier james keep an eye on the hot deals section. A good deal is bound to come up again!

Yeh I will do thanks I've been planning to get a 360, but just though waiting two/three weeks might save me a bit of money.
