Xbox 360 Circle LogoWhat we all knew would happen has finally come to pass. Microsoft has confirmed the pricedrop on the Xbox 360 for the U.S. and the U.S. only. It's only $50 but that will almost net you a game. The price drop takes effect 8 August 2007. So hold on to that cash for a few days longer.

More after the break...



“The fact that we have been able to keep our launch price longer than any other console while retaining our leadership position demonstrates that consumers believe in the value of Xbox 360,” said Mitch Koch, corporate vice president, Global Retail Sales and Marketing Group, Entertainment and Devices Division at Microsoft. “On the eve of the best holiday games lineup ever and the launch of ‘Madden NFL 08,’ there has never been a better time to jump into Xbox 360.”

No it shows that you were the first to market and so there was no need to drop the prices on the console. Granted the console has been in the number 2 slot out-pacing the PS3 but unable to keep up with the Wii sales numbers.

For those looking for the ultimate value and the freedom to customize their console as they see fit, Xbox 360 Core System will now be $279.99. Xbox 360 Core System provides everything needed to start gaming while giving consumers the ability to add new features and accessories they want. Dressed in black and equipped with a 120GB hard drive, Xbox 360 Elite will be priced at $449.99. for those who want the premium games and entertainment experience. In anticipation of this year’s largest blockbuster game launch, the Xbox 360 Halo  3 Special Edition Console will hit store shelves in September with a price tag of $399.99. Featuring an authentic Spartan green-and-gold finish, this console will include a matching Xbox 360 Wireless Controller, Xbox 360 20GB hard drive, Xbox 360 Headset, an Xbox 360 Play and Charge Kit, and more.

Those numbers actually look quite reasonable to me, and just in time for the holidays I see a boost in Xbox 360 sales this holday shopping season.
