Argos claims 60GB 360 discontinued
« on: August 15, 2009, 05:53:48 AM »
UK retailer Argos is claiming that Microsoft has binned the 60GB Xbox 360.

"We are very sorry but Microsoft have discontinued this line," the Argos listing offers (thanks to EG reader David for the heads-up).

Update: Eurogamer has been approached by member of a small chain of British retail stores who corroborates this story. Furthermore, the source claims Microsoft will increase the price of the Xbox 360 Arcade bundle and remove the free Xbox Live Arcade games from within.

No word yet on why, but we're trying to check with Microsoft. According to the same source, the Elite will now become the standard Xbox 360 console.

Earlier this summer, reports said Microsoft would discontinue the Premium 60GB model and move the Elite into its place. Perhaps they were right.

Microsoft has yet to respond.

Can't wait for Shenmue 3



I hate jokes that rely on visual imagery.

I've had it right up to here with them.

I have no need for a PS3. My Elite is enough for me. I cant justify spending that much on a console I will probarbly not play as much as the one I own

 I would have to agree (although I do not have an Elite) I just could not justify buying another console. And I am perfectly happy with the 360 anyway.
