After the $50 price cut in the US, It has been confirmed that Europe and the UK are getting a price cut today. The cut comes just before the release of the 360 Elite version on Friday and brings the pricing of the Core system into line with the price of the Wii. In full the various versions of the 360 are as follows:
- Core system (Console, wired controller) Ã‚£179.99 (was Ã‚£199.99)
- Premium system (Console, HDD, Wireless Controller, Headset) Ã‚£249.99 (was Ã‚£279.99)
- Elite system (Black Console, HDMI Cable, Bigger HDD, Wireless controller, headset) Ã‚£299.99
So we’re getting a price cut, not that it changes the fact that we’re still paying far more for our hardware than our American cousins. That still sucks.
