Xbox 360 Price Cuts Coming in Early September

Xbox 360 Arcade and Elite will get price cuts

Microsoft and Sony are still fighting it out for the scraps Nintendo leaves behind as it dominates the console sales figures. The Nintendo Wii is handily selling more consoles than the Xbox 360 and PS3 can move. [Frontpage...]

and eventually pass it in sales thanks to a couple of factors -- price drops and storage capacity increases.
I purposely bought the cheaper 40GB unit, just because it is very easy to upgrade the drive. I've got a 160GB drive in there now.

That's my plan as well; buy the lowest-cost version (especially since now, AIUI, the only significant difference between the various units is the drive size), and upgrade the drive if I need to.
