Microsoft Cuts Price on Xbox 360 Console

Microsoft has cut the price of their Xbox 360 250 GB console by $50.  Taking the price from $299 down to $249.  We were hoping they would also reduce the price on the 4 GB system but it doesn’t appear that happened.  Making the choice between versions a more difficult decision.  With the 250 GB a much better value in comparison to the 4 GB.  You can visit the Microsoft Store to buy the 250 GB Xbox 360 for $249.99.

Here’s a list of the items that come with the Xbox 360 250 GB console:

  • Xbox 360 250 GB S console
  • 250 GB removable hard drive
  • Xbox 360 headset
  • Wireless headset
  • Composite A/V cable
  • One-year limited warranty
  • One-month Xbox Live Gold membership

Those interested in Kinnect will end up paying $149 for the addition.  We looked to see if bundles were less but the Xbox 360 250 GB with Kinnect is priced at $399.99.  Meaning whether you buy in bundle or separate the price is the same.  You might keep an eye on vendors like Amazon and Best Buy for special offers.

Update: Amazon is offering the Kinnect sensor with Kinnect Adventures game for $136.99.  A better price that that offered directly from Microsoft.
