US: 360 HD-DVD price slashed

Ben Parfitt
With many predicting that the hi-def DVD war is fast approaching an end, and an end that will be marked with a Blu-Ray victory, Microsoft has slashed the price of its HD-DVD Xbox 360 drive in North America to $129.99.

This represents a discount of $50 – and means that in real money the accessory now costs just £65 across the pond. The RRP remains £114.99 in the UK, though savvy shoppers should be able to find it for under £100.

There’s no word yet on whether the UK will see a further price drop on the peripheral, though Microsoft has confirmed that gamers in Australia, Canada and New Zealand can expect similar discount to appear soon.
