Core 360 Down to £199
Retailers in the UK have today confirmed that Microsoft have officially sanctioned a price drop for the Xbox 360 Core Package effective as of today. The Core Package now has a RRP of £199 a drop of £10 from its original RRP of £209. It’s the first official drop in price in Europe since the system launched last December. The Premium Package remains at £279.
Rumours began earlier this week suggesting Microsoft were planning an official price drop after many retailers started to reduce their prices. However, a Microsoft spokesperson refused to confirm a drop by stating:
“Retail price is set by our retail partners. Retailers are already selling Xbox 360 Core System from £199.99, which we believe is outstanding value to consumers.”
