XBOX 360 Pros On Their Way Out

By Joel Taveras

August 6, 2009

There have been some rumblings lately regarding the phasing out of the “Pro” SKU from the XBOX 360 lineup, and the following picture is pretty much all the evidence we need. Currently the “Elite” model is being sold bundled with 2 AAA titles, Fable 2 and Halo 3, and at the price point of $399 MS positioned it perfectly to go up against the 80gb PS3. The XBOX 360 Arcade, (usually referred to as the gimped SKU of the bunch) has also become a much better buy,with 512mb of built in on board memory, up from 256. With Sony about to head towards price cuts, could this mean Microsoft is right behind them? Or could they be making room for a Project Natal SKU in the coming year? Only time will tell, maybe we will receive official word from MS at Gamescom. Stay Tuned.
