The price drop will take effect on August 8th, and will take effect in the US ONLY.

Xbox 360 Elite - $499.99
Xbox 360 Premium - $349.99

For the record, the Halo 3 Special Edition of the Xbox 360 Premium has been announced at $399.99.

In regards to the overseas market and a possible price cut, Nelson quoted Microsofts marketing team: "Today we are announcing a price reduction in the U.S. We will announce other regional price decreases at the appropriate time."

About MaximusPaynicusone of us since 3:44 PM on 01.27.2007


My name is James. By day I am a freelance copywriter and editor. While the perks of this job are getting to sleep 'til 2pm and working in my underwear, I've learned far more about hemorrhoid cream and proper swimming pool chlorination than I ever care to.

I guess you could say I'm a "former" video game "journalist" (though I wouldn't call myself the J word). I am the former Editor-in-Chief of Binge Gamer and I spent time writing at other blogs. I gave it up because while I love gaming and the gaming industry, I just didn't have the constitution to run my own business.

Not at the age of 23, anyways.

Let's see... apart from that I'm prior service US Army (Military Police), a stand-up comedian, a connoisseur of soft drinks and I once wrestled a cheetah.

I was victorious.
