Xbox 360 price cut to $150, for (glossy) Black Friday

Microsoft’s providing an early peek at Black Friday Xbox deals, including a big price cut on Xbox 360 consoles for a few days during the early holiday shopping spree.

Final deals will be determined by retailers, but Microsoft’s expecting Xbox 360 consoles to be temporarily sold for $50 to $100 below list prices, which range from $199 to $399.

Kinect sensors will be offered for $99.99 – down from the usual $149 – from Nov. 24 to 28.

Microsoft’s also marking down a few of its recent games, including “Gears of War 3” and “Forza Motorsport 4,” which will be $39.99 instead of the usual $59.99.

“Dance Central 2” and “Kinect Sports 2” will be $29.99 instead of the usual $49.99.

(Having just played a bit of “Kinect Spots 2” last night, I’d suggest going for “Dance Central 2,” “Forza” or “Gears” …)

No doubt Sony and Nintendo are also working on promotions for the PlayStation 3 and Wii.
