$199 Xbox 360 coming soon?

Until we have some form of official confirmation from the horse’s mouth we’re going to remain a tad skeptical, but evidence is mounting for the arrival of a $199 XBox 360 system in the near future. A screenshot of a product page for the Xbox 360 Arcade shows an amended SKU and new price point for a future system, set to be unleashed on the 7th of September. This release date coincides with a couple of major game releases, and would be a good way for Microsoft to launch a new promotional campaign leading into the Fall. Sure, it’s the barebones Arcade system, but $199 ain’t too bad for a “next-gen” console.
