Microsoft India has just announced a price cut for the Xbox 360 Arcade console in India. The price now drops from its launch price of Rs 16,990 to Rs 14,676. It’s great to see the Xbox 360 getting cheaper, but considering many retailers have been selling the console for well below this new MRP already, it may not make much of a difference to prospective buyers; unless retailers can now sell it at an even lower price.

We hear the new Xbox 360 slim console that was announced at E3 will be available in India starting August, with pricing and other Xbox 360-related announcements scheduled for July. We would’ve liked to see the old Arcade drop to around the Rs 10,000 mark before the new stock comes in. The press release also mentions “the future addition of Kinect”, but no further information was divulged.
