Microsoft Australia slashes Xbox 360 prices


Microsoft Australia has smashed its Xbox 360 prices just in time for holiday season, with the console now selling at retail for as little as $179.

The 360, which has been superseded by its much better looking (and arguably more invasive) Xbox One sibling, today saw prices across all bundles plummet.

Mike Nichols, CVP of Marketing for Xbox announced the drop, stating, “Coming into its ninth holiday shopping season, Xbox 360 continues to deliver amazing games and entertainment experiences to consumers.”
“These new bundles for holiday shoppers, new lower price points and new special edition blue console are sure to delight gamers, young and old this holiday.”

The base level 4GB Kinect-less Xbox 360 has come down from $199 to just $179, while the 4GB bundle including Kinect has dropped from $299 to $249.

The 250GB, Kinectless and Kinect equiped consoles have fallen $100 each, with RRP of $199 and $299 from today.

MS also announced a '500GB Holiday Bundle' for $279, including an Xbox 360 with upgraded 500 GB hard drive, Call of Duty: Ghosts, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and one month access to Xbox Live Gold access.

EB Games in Australia will also have an exclusive special addition of the above bundle with the "Xbox 360 Special Edition Blue Bundle" which will hit shelves on 7 October.

The new prices come into effect 1 October, marking nine years since the Xbox 360 first went on sale.

The Xbox One, for those who need leading edge technology, is available for $498 without Kinect, or $598 with it.
