shocked (UK) MS drops price of Xbox 360 Core pack down to 199GBP

>> From gamesindustry.biz:
Quote:
UK retail has confirmed to GamesIndustry.biz that Microsoft has officially dropped the RRP of the Xbox 360 Core pack to GBP 199, effective from today.
The readjustment from the previous RRP of GBP 209 is the first formal hardware price cut since the system launched across Europe last December.

Many UK vendors had already started selling the lower-spec version of the next-gen system, which lacks a hard drive, for the reduced price - taking a hit on their own margins. The premium system still has an RRP of GBP 279.


Thoughts?

Personally this makes me hesitant to go buy one now...they'll probably do a price cut a week after I buy it.

Could this be leading up to a holiday price drop in the states?

That what I'm wondering.

It probably wont be a full price cut on all 360's, but seeing as these cuts usually find their way to the US it could mean a holiday-time price cut on just the Core system...to try and pull in some more casual and cost-conscience customers. Also they could be setting up the Core system to compete with the Nintendo Wii with a cut like this.

Either way I'm getting the $400 version for christmas. Somehow my mom figured out a way to get like three discounts on it that drops the price from $400, to like $275.

This just makes me want to buy one even more. The PS3 is starting to look like a victim of it's own hype and and will crazily expensive.
