No price cut for Xbox 360 in Middle East

Price cut and new 60GB Xbox model only for North American market says Microsoft

Microsoft has announced a price cut for its Xbox games console in the US, although Middle East markets won't benefit from a similar reduction.

Ahead of the E3 games show in Los Angeles, which starts today, Microsoft announced that it would be cutting the price of the Xbox 360 console with 20GB hard drive by $50, from $349 to $299.

Microsoft has officially launched the Xbox 360 in Saudi Arabia and the UAE, but said in a statement to itp.net that the price cut would not be implemented in the EMEA region.

Microsoft also announced a new Xbox 360 with 60GB hard drive, which will be available in North America only, from August at a price of $349.
