US retailer Walmart’s said that a price reduction of the 4Gb Xbox 360 and Kinect bundle from last week was a mere error, saying it was “mistakenly labeled as a rollback.” However, until either next Monday or while stock lasts, it will honour the reduction in price. Microsoft insisted that it was not the prologue to an official price-cut announcement, telling Joystiq that Walmart had “made an independent decision to implement this temporary price cut.”
