Several retailers – including ShopTo – have confirmed to Eurogamer that the Xbox 360 Arcade SKU is getting a price increase, up from £129.99 to £159.99.
It was also confirmed that accessories for the 360 will go up by one to two pounds.
And to add even more mystery to it, only the Arcade and Elite bundles were mentioned, which leads to even more speculation that the normal 60GB will be out the door soon.

Judging by today’s Virtual Console releases, it seems Nintendo Europe has inflated the price for import titles. For example:
TurboGrafx (PC Engine)
- Final Soldier – 700 Points
- GRADIUS II: GOFER NO YABOU – 900 Points
- Columns III: Revenge of Columns – 900 Points
Compared with other TurboGrafx titles, that’s an increase of 80 percent, and MegaDrive’s Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom went for 800 points a couple of weeks ago.
We just call as we see it. Checking with Nintendo now.

According to this Hardcoreware report, Sony’s increased the price of PS3 in Hong Kong and Singapore by approximately $25 and $30 respectively.
“It should be noted that even with this price increase, the PS3 is still a good $25 cheaper in Hong Kong than the MSRP in North America.,” said the site. “In Singapore, it’s about $44 more than in USA, so this recent price increase made it even more expensive, when it was close to par recently.”
More through the link. We’ve seen this in a few places this morning, and no one appears to have any clue as to why the price has gone up. God moves in mysterious ways, obviously.
