Last week we got further confirmation that the Xbox 360 Pro system will be phased out and the Elite system will receive a price cut. Microsoft is mum on the verification, but today a report issued by MCV says that the Xbox 360 Arcade will receive a price bump of £30 in the UK. The report also goes on to say that many of the accessories will also receive a slight price increase.
Currently there are no indications of a price increase here in the US and this isn’t the first time we’ve seen an price increase on a video game system isolated to outside the US. But still, if true this seems to be contrary to Microsoft’s strategy to try and take back a piece of the throne from Nintendo.
