The price war has started ahead of the release of the highly anticipated update to the Xbox 360 the Xbox 360 Slim. Game.co.uk were one of the first to accept pre-orders for the Xbox 360 Elite Slimline following the announcement of the new slimmer design at E3.
Coolshop are accepting pre-orders for the price of £179.99 ahead of the release date of Friday 16 July, 2010.
Some may question the value of upgrading their current 360 and this offer may just tempt those unsure as trade in prices on the older version are still faily good at the moment. Plus with the built in Wi-Fi large 250GB hard drive to match that being sold with the Super Elite and advances in technology such as 45nm CPU & GPU, which means a more efficient (reduced power consumption), quieter, cooler and more reliable console there is a strong case for the new Xbox 360 Slimline.
