xbox360SkinectIf you happen to live Down Under, where koalas and kangaroos are synonymous with the Wallabies rugby team, and absolutely love your video games, then you are in for a treat if you figure out that a new Xbox 360 is just the tonic you need to tide you over those long and boring weekends. Microsoft has announced that they will be introducing a price drop to their entire Xbox 360 console as well as Kinect range in Australia, where the new pricing details will come into effect from October 4th onwards. This can only mean one thing – chances are you will find that video game stores there would not register a single Xbox 360 sale from now until then, as waiting this time will certainly pay dividends in the form of you saving money.

Do expect significant reductions across the board such as the 250GB Xbox 360 retailing for a mere $300, which is roughly what a 12GB PlayStation 3 costs with one game. Do take note that the Halo 4 limited edition bundle will still be priced at approximately $500 thereabouts. The Kinect Sensor will be $50 cheaper at $149, while the 4GB Xbox 360 will cost $199, with the 4GB Xbox 360 with Kinect bundle saving you $100 at $299.
