Xbox 360 drops $100 CDN in Canada After announcing price cuts on Xbox 360 consoles in the US, Microsoft has announced that Canadian gamers will finally get a price cut as well, with the Premium and Core systems both dropping $100 CDN to $400 and $300 CDN respectively.
Compared to the US, products sold in Canada are usually more expensive but a deflating dollar has almost put the CDN on par with the dollar. Also dropping in price is the Elite, which will now cost $500 CDN.

I bought a Xbox 360 when they first came out, got the 3 red lights of death. Did everything to try and get it working again with no luck. As much as I'm pissed at MS i'm still going to buy another 360, but only because I love supporting Bill Gates, it has nothing to do with the fact that I have 30 games that are useless right now. So this price drop is nice to hear.

It's a sad reality.

This whole sh** sucks

PS3 are better console than Xbox 360, but Xbox 360 has more and better games to choose from, PS3 give you unlimited Online gaming and Internet Access for free, Xbox 360 don't. in general, game developers prefer the Xbox 360, and the few Playstation game developers prefers the PS2 platform. What That F*** !~@%*^

can you explain that SH**!

I am just happy in seeing that the price drops are happening across the board.
