Australians finally see price drop on Xbox 360 Over a week after the US and Canada saw price drops on the Xbox 360, Australia is finally getting the same treatment.
Starting today, the 360 will cost the same as the rival Nintendo Wii, with the Core model running A$399.95, a A$30 price cut. The Pro model will see an even bigger drop, from A$649.95 to A$579.95. The Pro models will also be shipping with an HDMI connection just like the Premium units in the US.

Microsoft also said they plan to bring the Elite and Halo 3 Special edition models to the country, but did not give a definite date as to when.

Why don't they just do this at the same time across the globe?

Seen the HD pack tonight when out shopping for A$519.00 at the store called 'GAME" -aka 'The Games Wizards' (they have been bought out and are under a new name now & image).

Cheap as and also seen adverts for the ELITE version with 120GB HD for A$799- a fukn rip off!

Just go and buy the Core System for a$380.00 seen adrvetised and buy a 120GB HD separately and you laughing!!! Fuk the HDMI- just buy the connection to make it HDMI.

It's a way of managing and controlling their losses. They've reached a point where now they can accept more loss in one area because it's balanced by gains in another.
