MCV reports that Sainsbury's is set to offer substantial price reductions for the Xbox 360 from tomorrow. According to the publication's sources the Xbox 360 Arcade will go on sale at £99.97 - a £30 price cut - while the 60GB model will be available for £139.97.

The price cuts won't be permanent though, with MCV noting that Sainsbury's will run the promotion between October 3 and October 12.

I'll be picking up at least one Arcade biggrin.gif . I also heard someone say that any old 20gb premium stock they had left would be going for the same price!. £100 for a 360 is amazing value. I find it hard to understand why people on eBay keep buying faulty non HDMI Cores and Arcades for £65+ postage blink.gif .

Anyone know the reason of the promotion?

Get rid of all Falcon's before Jaspers arrive?

Just picked up an Arcade pack in Belfast for the reduced £99 price and it has an Hitachi drive  (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

Probably to get folks through the doors into their Supermarket.

I hardly know anyone who shops there now!

Can anyone tell me if these have HDMI?
I intended to go out on Monday to trade in my old model for HDMI, but might just get a second one if they still exist.

they need a promotion like this in the US.  I already have two so I probably wouldn't buy one.  At that price it would make a nice gift for someone.

I got the last Arcade from my local store  biggrin.gif. The staff seemed a bit clueless about the whole thing and it didn't seem as though they'd ordered in any more stock for the promo.
