Microsoft cutting Xbox 360 prices on Friday

Xbox 360 console, Microsoft Corp.

The cost of an Xbox 360 is about to drop, making the best video game console (in my opinion) more affordable for those who don’t know the joys of owning Microsoft’s happybox.

I own the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii and play them all more than I should. At $250, the Nintendo Wii is a steal, offering the most innovative and family-friendly gaming experience out there. The PlayStation 3 is a powerful machine that currently costs $400 for the 80 GB version, and though it has a Blu-ray player and some cool games, connecting with friends online can be a problem.

There’s no question that the Xbox 360 is the champion when you consider the awesome library of games, amazing graphics it produces and the superior Xbox LIVE online service. Here’s the Xbox 360 price list:

VERSION PREVIOUS PRICE NEW PRICE
Arcade $280 $200
60 GB $350 $300
Elite (120 GB) $450 $400

You can get more info on what each console version includes on the official Xbox 360 website. I highly recommend getting the 60 GB version or the Elite because you’ll need that hard drive space to take full advantage of all the downloadable arcade games, TV shows and movies on Xbox LIVE.
