X360 Premium 60GB bundle for the same price as a Wii?!?

Forums - Microsoft Discussion - X360 Premium 60GB bundle for the same price as a Wii?!?

I saw in this weeks ads a X360 Premium 60GB HDMI + Indy + Kung Fu Panda for 2390 SEK. That's about the same as a Wii with no extras. Or half of what the PS3 80GB LBP bundle costs.

That's pretty aggressive pricing.

Even with that price it cant convince me buying it.



 

Here in Holland it's €199 for the Pro with Indy and KFP. Wii is €250.



Here you can get arcade 149€ (Same price as DS)

Yup and the Elite is the same price as the Wii.. € 250

But we have a special cashback action untill the end of december...

arcade 179,99 - 30 = 149,99

pro    239,99 - 40 = 199,99

Elite 299,99 - 50 - 249,99

It's happening in the US. Here's a 360 pro for $254 from Dell:

I wonder if 360 is profitable with all these discounts. Probably is.



I don't think MS pays for these discounts. I do think the fact that we're seeing more 360 sales than PS3 (I know because I'm looking for a good PS3 deal) indicates the 360 margins are better for retailers.



In UK Wii = £180, 60Gb 360 = £170 (or maybe 180 also).

Pro w/ 2 games is going to be $239.99 after a $60 gift card is included in the bundle from Target for Black Friday.

Ender - You are correct. 2 years ago (Christmas 06), retailers were including $100 gift cards on the Premium X360s. Stuff like this happens, because retailers know that the people are going to use the gift cards to buy high-markup items like the games themselves. So a $60 discount ends up being a $30 discount.



Back from the dead, I'm afraid.
