Microsoft slashes Xbox prices


Microsoft announced that it is slashing prices of its flagship gaming device, XBOX 360, in the US. This will take the price of the basic model down to $199, approximately $50 cheaper than Nintendo Wii. It said that prices for the other Xbox models
will drop by $50.

The US cut follows a similar move in Japan. In late August Microsoft announced that Japanese prices of the Xbox 360 would
fall in September. The cut meant an Xbox Arcade will cost 19,800 yen ($182), also
cheaper than the Wii. Earlier this year, in March Microsoft cut European prices making the recommended price
for the Arcade £159.99, lower than the European price for a
Wii.
