Australia gets 360 price cut, same price as Wii

Hot on the heels of a North America price cut, Microsoft has just announced that Australia has officially taken part in the Xbox 360 price cutting too. Yesterday, Australia and New Zealand Xbox 360 territories saw a price drop on both console offerings seeing the Premium drop from $649 to $579 AUD and the Core get a price cut from $429 to $399 AUD. The adjusted console prices have ushered in a new comparison between the Xbox 360 and the Nintendo Wii in Aussie-land, because both the 360 Core and the Wii now share the same $399 AUD price tag. Interesting, isn't it?

Congrats Australia on the price cuts you've just experienced and now we just have to wait for all of Europe to hop in on the fun and announce their participation in the 360 price cutting too.
