With big thanks to our partners at Dealzon, we know a little more about this $50 price drop on Xbox 360 configurations. The big detail is that the cut isn't limited to just GameStop. "These are new bundles, supposedly released Oct. 9, and are now selling for $250 at Best Buy, Amazon, and Gamestop, instead of $300 that was expected through last week," says Dealzon.
The $50 price cut affects the new 4GB Kinect Holiday Bundle (with Kinect Adventures and Kinect Disney Adventures) and a bundle packaging a 250GB Xbox 360 with The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim and Forza Motorsport 4.
Amazon and Best Buy are offering free shipping. Both are $250.
We have additionally heard from a source that the $50 discount will be good through January at GameStop and does not affect standalone 4GB Xbox 360 packages—just the Kinect-bundled 4GB Xbox 360.
