At E3 last week, Microsoft announced that its 20GiB Xbox 360 Premium would fall in price to help clear out stock and make way for the forthcoming 60GiB model in August. Unfortunately for the watching world, that announcement applied only to the US market.

Over in the UK, however, some of the big-name retailers such as Play.com and Amazon.co.uk have taken matters into their own hands. Play.com has slashed the price of its 20GiB Xbox 360 Premium console by £30, making it available for a very tidy sum of £169.99. Similarly, Amazon.co.uk has cut its price by £20.

Microsoft denies any involvement, and we're assuming these retailers are cutting prices to help clear stock in anticipation of the arrival of the new Xbox 360 Premium. But, if 60GiBs of storage isn't all that important to you, these newly-lowered prices could be the opportune moment to bag yourself a console.

Its good that we are seeing more price drops on the 360. More affordable for everyone. 20Gb version is ideal for just pure gamers that arn't overly bothered by using the console for media. Mind you it will still comfortably hold a few movies on there.
:lol:

I got mine from littlewoods a while ago when there was an offer on for £155 :)

Still a good competitive price though, makes it cheaper than the Wii…and easier to get games for

Games can now be copied to the drive though, so larger hard drives will be needed.

The 120GB drives are readily available though - for anybody who needs more HDD space :)


Bloomin' ‘eck!
I’ve just checked the price for the 120GB drive, and it's typically £130 now (with a transfer cable) :surprised:
I bought three of 'em (for mine and my two sons 360's) on Ebay last year for just £59.95 each (+ £10 P&P) :O_o1:
Seriously tempted at this price, might be a good time to invest with the Wii not getting much playtime
