Deja vu: Microsoft cuts Xbox 360 prices in Europe

European customers will receive their second Xbox 360 price cut in the past six months.

This Friday European customers will receive their second Xbox 360 price cut in the past six months.

Microsoft confirmed the cut via a press release Tuesday, which said the price of the base model Xbox 360 Pro will drop to £169/€239.

The bare bones Arcade model will be £129/€179, which puts it substantially lower in price than Nintendo's relatively inexpensive Wii console.

The higher end Xbox 360 Elite will retail for £229/€299.

Checking the release calendar for the Xbox 360 in Europe for the upcoming months, we see that two huge soccer games, FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer, are due out for the system very soon. Combined with the lower prices, it could make for a very interesting holiday for the traditionally pro-Sony European market.

There was no word from Microsoft on further North American price cuts. If you'll remember, the company cut the U.S. Xbox 360 price across the board on September 5.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
