Details on $50 Xbox price cut reported

Word is trickling about a $50 price cut by Aug. 12, bringing the price of an Xbox 360 premium system to $349.

Microsoft hasn’t provided details and wouldn’t talk about price cuts during its analyst meeting last week, but the lower price appears in pre-printed newspaper insert ads dated Aug. 12, according to the Cheap Ass Gamer Web site.

Don’t be too put off by the site’s name: it provided visual evidence expanding on last week’s Hollywood Reporter story about the $50 price cut.
