Microsoft wants your money, but not all of it. Big MS is upping the ante in the price drop battle by offering a $50 rebate to anybody in the United States who purchases an Xbox 360 between now and October 5.
This certainly has to be a response to the PlayStation 3 price cut, with Microsoft attempting to undermine Sony’s efforts to put more PS3s into homes this Winter. The rebate makes the entry cost for an Elite a rather attractive $249, which certainly makes it cheaper than the $299 PS3. Will the plan succeed? That remains to be seen.
The rebate details are available on this page. What do you reckon? Will this have any impact on sales?
