Rumour: Euro 360 price cuts “brought forward because of Woolies leak”

Seems as though this morning’s European 360 cut announcement was sprung on retail as well as everyone else. UK retailers only found out about the timing of the new prices yesterday, and we’re told by a reliable source this morning that the announcement was jumped forward thanks to last week’s Woolworths leak.

Apparently Microsoft is furious about the incident. rumoured yesterday that the cuts were to be announced at an event next week.

As was confirmed this morning, the Arcade will drop to to £129 (€179), 60Gb Pros to £169 (€239) and Elites to £229 (€299), reduced from the previous £159 (€199), £199 (€269) and £259 (€369) pricing.
