Xbox 360 Elite price cut to £199

Pro discontinued, Arcade at £159.

Microsoft will officially cut the price of the Xbox 360 Elite to £199.99 tomorrow, 28th August, and has confirmed the 60GB Pro model will be phased out.

The Xbox 360 Arcade will move to a higher £159.99 price than at present and will not be officially bundled with software as it has been recently.

Over in the US, the Elite will sell for $299.99 and the Arcade for $199.99.

The Elite will no longer ship with a bundled HDMI cable.

Last week Sony cut the price of the PlayStation 3 to £249.99 / €299.99 and announced the introduction of a new slim unit, due out imminently, which features a 120GB hard disk - the same capacity offered by the Xbox 360 Elite.
