The word went out today from the folks at Microsoft: On Tuesday, March 30th the price of their Xbox game console will drop $30 to $149. Plus the folks at IGN.com are reporting that the prices on several titles have been dropped as well.
Microsoft is also slashing the price on several first-party games. Project Gotham Racing, Crimson Skies, and Counter-Strike see an adjustment to $29.99 each come Tuesday. Voodoo Vince, Grabbed by the Ghoulies, and Music Mixer will outdo that cut by dropping down to a mere $19.99 each.
In an effort to make Xbox more accessible to the entire family, Microsoft is expanding its Platinum Hits library to include a Platinum Family Hits branch. The first members are Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Finding Nemo, which are now available for $19.99 each.
So if you’ve been holding off on getting an Xbox due to rumors of a pending price cut then you can stop waiting and go save $30.
