According to this Gamespot story, Microsoft has announced price drops on Xbox 360 add-ons in Australia overnight.

The wireless racing wheel sees the biggest price drop, falling from A$199.95 ($170.73) to the new price point of A$149.95 ($128.02).

Also down is the 120GB HDD, dropping from A$229.95 ($196.95) to A$199.95.

The wireless network adaptor, wired headset, and universal media remote all receive an A$20 ($17.08 ) saving, with the NA now costing A$149.95 ($129.06), and the wired headset and universal media remote both costing A$29.95 ($25.57).

The news compliments a heavy price drop of the console itself in Japan, which, according to a Nikkei report, will see as much as 30 percent come off the cost of the machine.
