MS bumps Xbox 360 prices

Microsoft has told retailers in the UK that it will raise prices for the Arcade version of its Xbox 360 gaming console at the start of September due to the poor pound to Euro exchange rate, according to a recent EuroGamer report. The Xbox 360 Arcade will cost 160 ($261) up from 130 ($212) and will not include five XBLA games. At the same time, Xbox 360 accessories will also be increased by a few pounds.

The information comes from independent and retail gaming stores, who have heard this from Microsoft directly. In its memo to the retailers, Microsoft only mentioned Arcade and Elite bundles, with the dates lining up perfectly for the discontinuation of the Xbox 360 Pro.
