Microsoft cuts Xbox 360 price again in the UK; now £129.99 with Forza Horizon 2

In September, Microsoft cut the price of its Xbox 360 in the UK by 25%, reducing it to £149.99, including a copy of Forza Horizon 2. When it introduced that new, lower price, Microsoft marked the ageing console as "reduced to clear" - but it seems it's now increasing its efforts to shift the last of its remaining stock.

The same bundle has now been reduced by a further £20 (13%), and is available to buy for £129.99. Officially, that new lower price is a 'special offer' due to run until January 6, 2017, but it seems unlikely that it will return to its earlier price.

Microsoft announced in April that it had ended production of the venerable Xbox 360, and it's no doubt keen to focus its sales and marketing efforts on its latest Xbox One S console, which is priced from £249 in the UK.

It's already working on its next console as well. Scheduled to arrive in late 2017, Microsoft describes Project Scorpio as the "most powerful console ever", with support for native 4K gaming and virtual reality - but its fierce performance will come at a higher price than its current Xbox One S range.
