You may wanna hold your horses if you're keen on the new Xbox 360 Slim, as IGN has reason to believe you'll be able to get one for even cheaper than you can now. The shiny, slick new Xbox 360 Slim currently retails for $299.99 USD featuring built-in Wi-Fi, removable 250GB hard drive, and comes bundled with a wireless controller and headset.
A Microsoft representative has confirmed that the console giant has plans to release the Xbox 360 Slim at a new $199 USD price point later this fall. Perhaps it is no coincidence that the Kinect motion-sensing add-on for the 360 happens to launch around the same timeframe! Lower pricing for consoles usually come with some sort of hardware revision, so perhaps the cheaper 360 Slim will come with a smaller hard drive, or less bundled gear. We already know that Microsoft intends to bundle 360 hardware with the Kinect itself, though certainly not for a lower price.
