Xbox 360 Price Drops and a new Elite Bundle With WiFi Adapter and Halo 3 Stephen Fung August 27, 2009 Press Release The console wars have just gotten a little more heated. Following SONY’s song and dance with their price drops and the introduction of their new PS3 SLIM model earlier on, Microsoft has responded with deals of their own for Canadian gamers. First off, the Xbox 360 Pro console remains in the line up for a little longer, but drops to $279.99 CAD, which is a $20 savings. MS has stated that this is a limited quantity thing so it looks like once they’re gone from inventory, they’re gone. Its replacement looks to be the Xbox 360 Elite which will start going for $329.99 CAD right away, but MS has thrown us a little bone for once in the Great White North. Starting tomorrow (August 28th) and for a limited time, Canadians that are springing for the Xbox 360 Elite will get a chance to pick up a rather decent bundle that includes the still fun to this day title, Halo 3 and to give SONY a swift punch to the head, they are including WiFi by throwing in their Wireless Network Adapter; something that used to be an advantage of the PS3 over the Xbox 360. This bundle will hit stores for the price of the standalone Xbox 360 Elite which is $329.99 CDN. No end date for this special bundle has been announced, so I’ll assume that means “While Quantities Last”. Other details of this limited time bundle include… 1 Black Wireless Controller 120 GB Memory Storage Xbox LIVE Wired Headset Network Ethernet Cable 30 day Free Trial of Xbox LIVE Gold Membership There had been rumors that the Elite would be losing its HDMI cable in the box and I guess that rumor is reality. Seriously, this isn’t a big deal because an HDMI cable can be had for $10 bucks. Probably less if you shop around. Personally, I’d take the WiFi Adapter over the HDMI cable any day of the week. So let me think…hmm… do I buy the Elite Bundle for $329.99 CAD? Or do I buy the Elite by itself for $329.99 CAD? Share This With The World!
