DailyTech - The speculation and leaked ads have been doing the rounds for a while now. In fact, ever since the PS3 got a price cut it has been predicted Microsoft would follow suit with its console. When there is that much talk, it often turns out to be true. MS put us all out of our misery yesterday when it made the Xbox 360 price cuts official. - jammin *News Editor*

"Microsoft officially announced the price drops for the three existing Xbox 360 SKUs. Beginning August 8, the Elite, Premium and Core will carry an MSRP of $449.99, $349.99 and $279.99 respectively. In addition, the previously announced Xbox 360 Halo 3 Special Edition Console will be priced at $399.99 when it hits store shelves in September. The Halo 3-themed Xbox 360 features an HDMI port like the more expensive Elite and an "authentic Spartan green-and-gold finish." Microsoft also notes that the console will come with a Play and Charge kit."
