XBOX 360 Cheaper than Wii!!

Word from is that Microsoft is going to hack £38 from the price of XBox consoles across Europe.

It’s as yet unconfirmed by the big M but this would mean that the basic 360 Arcade console will cost as little as £150 when the expected price cuts come into play on March 14th – yup, that’s next week folks!

That’s cheaper than the Wii, and around half the price of the PS3!  Nice.

The XBox 360 Elite will also come down to around £240.

I think that we can take this as a sign that Microsoft are taking Blu-ray’s win in the format wars (and the expected surge in PS3 sales) seriously indeed.  Let’s wait for this new round of warefare to gain momentum!
