PostSubject: Microsoft cuts Canadian Xbox 360 console price   Tue Feb 26, 2008 1:41 pm

TORONTO (Reuters) - Microsoft Corp (MSFT.O) said late on Wednesday it will cut the prices of its Xbox 360 video-game consoles in Canada, in a continuing battle with Nintendo Co Ltd's (7974.OS) Wii and Sony Corp's (6758.T) PlayStation 3 for dominance of the gaming market.

But prices in the United States will not change, Microsoft spokesman David Dennis said, adding that each market makes its own decision on the matter.

Microsoft said in a statement it would cut the price of the Xbox 360 console to C$349 from C$399, while the premium Elite model with a larger hard drive would drop to C$449 from C$499. The more basic Arcade model is dropping to $279 from C$299.

($1=$1.01 Canadian)

Mason, perfect time for you to finally get a 360! Laughing don't bother getting an HD DVD player add on for the 360 though. Microsoft just pulled the plug on those.

When I got my 360, I paid $485 for the system with the 20 gig HD, wireless controller and headset. $60 of that was for my very first game, Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion.

I don't know why they seem more expensive now scratch

yeah, that's because they aren't making HD DVDs period. they're pretty much giving it up because blu rays are better, and pretty much anyone who bought an HD DVD player is getting screwed... aren't corporations so nice?
