Microsoft Officially Announces XBox 360 Arcade

The rumors were pretty solid but now its official Microsoft has released the XBox 360 Arcade. This will replace the XBox 360 Core, priced at $279.99 and will come with an HDMI port and 5 XBox Live Arcade games on a 256MB memory card.

This is getting dangerously close to the Nintendo Wii’s $250 price point, which is obviously who Microsoft is trying to compete with with this product. This is a step in the right direction but I’m still convinced that there won’t be mass adoption of these next generation consoles until they drop below the $200 price point, I truly believe that that is the sweet spot.
