Never saw this coming. Speaking to VG247, Microsoft UK called overnight claims that the European entry level Xbox 360 will drop in price next week “rumour and speculation”. And as you all know by now, ““We don’t comment on rumour or speculation,” the firm said.

The story originated on a Dutch site, which claimed Microsoft Europe was readying to drop the price of the Xbox 360 Core pack to €199, making it €50 cheaper than the European Wii.
