Cash in on great value in games and entertainment
©2009 Grant Smythe:
We all love a bargain, and we are certainly getting one here. Microsoft Australia are officially knocking $AU100 off the normal RRP of the Elite 360. Now that makes the 120 gig equipped item well worth the buy, never mind the free game.
From 22nd September the Elite will be RRP $491 and will come with a free copy of Halo 3: ODST until October 20, 2009.
With the Elite’s extra storage, it would make it much more viable in today’s world of DLC and movies-playback. I suspect that the Arcade my end up with the 60gig HDD, and the current Xbox 360 Pro might see its retirement. This will then be followed by the new ‘Xbox 720′ which will sport the unified GPU/CPU motherboard called Valhalla touted to be installed in new machines late in 2009/ early 2010.
This would fall in line with the new Natal equipment that will no doubt be a pre-installed function in new forthcoming machines (Xbox720) but also as a stand-alone item for all those with pre-existing Xbox 360s.
Anyhow, we have a great holiday season ahead, with Halo ODST, Forza 3, and several other 3rd party games heading our way. Anyone that says there’s not enough games available (on any platform) is just plain greedy and, frankly, blind.
