Here are the new prices according to a Circuit City ad cited around the Net today. Other retail ad leaks confirm the numbers.
Xbox 360 Elite: $449 ($30 cut)
Xbox Pro $349 ($50 cut)
Core $279 ($20 cut)
I’ve seen Aug. 8 and Aug. 12 as effective dates. A $20 cut also is in effect for the HD DVD standalone unit (drive), necessary for high-def on all of these machines. Check out my previous rundown of how the Xbox price cuts might affect video downloaders and home theater owners.
