Amazon UK puts Xbox 360 prices back up after morning drop

Oh dear. Amazon UK has now changed all it’s Xbox 360 hardware prices back to their original levels, following cutting them this morning.

The Arcade pack is now listed as £189.98, the Premium as £249.99 and the Elite as £279.99. This morning, the retailer had dropped its prices to £149.99 for the Arcade, £189.99 for the Premium and the £249.99 for the Elite.

We suspect someone somewhere may have a few bruised knuckles. A Europe-wide Xbox 360 price-drop announcement is expected this week, following last night’s news of a Dutch retailer detailing the drops and the German FT saying the price would be cut today.
