Xbox Europe boss Chris Lewis has told MCV that the now-confirmed 360 Arcade SKU price hike to £159.99 from £129.99 is thanks in part to exchange rates.
“We are making modest increases on the Xbox 360 Arcade console as you can see,” said the exec.
“The reality now is partly to offset currency exchange rate fluctuations which have impacted us in local market conditions – particularly in the UK.
“And you’ve seen other consumer products operate in the same way. But I think even with that we still offer the most affordable console in the marketplace out there.
“So we’ve reset the price point largely based on exchange rate fluctuations, but are still very happy we offer great value through the Xbox 360 Arcade.”
Microsoft said this morning that Arcade would rise £30 in the UK, while the Elite pack would drop to £199.99.

The American Arcade unit remains at $200, which its price has risen in Europe to £159.99 from £129.99.
It looks as though the HDMI cable has been dropped from both the European and American Elite packs.

3 on 3 NHL Arcade is now available for download over on Xbox Live for $10 (800 MS Points).
The game allows players to choose top NHL players and throw them into the rink for a no-holds-barred, big-headed exhibition of hard hitting hockey.
Up to four players can get in on the action, with co-op options for three, should the mood strike you. Last but not least, online multiplayer options allow two-six players.
A trial mode is available should you want to try it first, while the full version will unlock the leaderboards and achievements.

Sega recently filed two software trademarks in the U.S. and Europe called Ringedge, Ringwide and a third, which is a mysterious logo with rings.
Both Ringedge and Ringwide have been trademarked for “stand alone video game machines, and arcade game machines with built-in screens” according to Siliconera.
Maybe this means we will start seeing more coin-operated machines at our local grocery stores again. Maybe.

According to this, Namco Bandai is to close a fifth of its Japanese arcades, 50-60 in number, blaming Wii for taking physical-style games into the home.
“A lot of the types of games that people played at an arcade can now be done at home,” company spokesman Yuji Machida said.
The Nikkei hammered the company’s stock on the news, which saw it slide 27 percent since Tuesday. Namco Bandai isn’t the only arcade operator to be hit by this “problem”: Sega Sammy is also closing down 100 arcades as their popularity wanes.
