Xbox 360 Slim UK price slashed by retail giant Tesco

Tesco out prices competitors with Xbox 360 Slim

Global supermarket behemoth Tesco has unveiled the first cut-price offering of the upcoming Xbox 360 Slim, the latest games console from Microsoft.

Already out in the US, the slimmed down 360 is due for release in the UK this coming Friday (July 16th) and has been available for pre-order on our British shores for a number of weeks at its £200 RRP. Tesco, however, has decided to reduce its per-unit profits and offer the latest Xbox console for just £189 ahead of its launch which coincides with the start of UK school’s summer holidays.

As the retail giants state ‘Every little helps’ and Tesco is living up to this motto offering clubcard holders double points on the cheapest available 360 Slim worth more than £12, or in gaming terms, a good chunk towards a new title.

With pre-order made before July 15th promised delivery on the July 16th launch day, Tesco is looking to bump customers up from the older Xbox 360 Elite, which is marginally cheaper, to the new, quiet, smaller, 250GB hard drive packing Slim model.

With such a small price difference between the Elite and the Slim (£40), customers tempted to splash out on the newer model could see the older 360 consoles sold at a loss in the near future as Microsoft try to reduce stock levels.
