If a Walmart flyer is any indication, the 4Gb Xbox 360 with Kinect bundled in will drop from $299 to $249 next week.
It’s unknown if it’s just a drop from the retail chain itself – the flyer is dated for the week beginning August 28 – or if it’s from Microsoft.
“As you can imagine, we plan for these scenarios all the time. For me to sit here and say that was a big surprise would be a lie,” he told us in Cologne.
“What we’ve achieved with Kinect has given us growth that I think others would aspire to at this point in the lifecycle. We’re happy with our position. While we’re not complacent about the competition, I wouldn’t trade places.”
If there was to be a price cut, it would follow the one given to PS3 last week in Germany by Sony.
