Amazon 100-Dollar X360

Amazon today confirmed that it will be selling the Xbox 360 Core System for $100 during the American Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday. After launching the company's first ever user-determined sale promotion, where customers were able to vote for their preferred sale item, the company declared that the Microsoft game console had won by a clear majority. The Core edition of the Xbox 360 normally retails for $299 and removes the 20GB hard drive of the Premium edition, which is needed for the console's recently unveiled video download store. The price differential is still expected to drive a sharp increase in the sales of the now year-old console, however, as adding the drive and other missing accessories will not approach the $399 cost of the Premium version, whose price remains unchanged at the online retailer.
