New Xbox 360 Arcade console reduced to 99 at Sainsburys.

Sainsbury's, in answer to Morrison's half-price chart games and Tesco's and Asda's FIFA 09 price slashing, has taken the dramatic move of selling Microsoft's Xbox 360 Arcade edition for under a 100. Its 99.97 price tag undercuts Microsoft's 129 SRP, which the company is widely advertising on the TV at the moment.

Also being discounted are the 60GB Xbox 360 (139.97 from 169.97) and the Nintendo Wii (149.97 from 179.97), so if you were thinking of buying any of the above for Christmas, now seems like a pretty good time.

It's only until October 12th though. If you read the report, that's what it says anyway.

At the moment these offers are supposed to be running from today until October 12th, so you don't have long to get one, though it would be a surprise if at least one other supermarket doesn't respond in kind.

The arcade game can do everything the premium can, minus playing Original Xbox games. Correct?

No, the arcade does not have a hard drive. It has a memory unit instead. Otherwise they are the same. The arcade even has HDMI output (just no cable). :)
