$443 including tax. Not great but better than the $507 they had us coughing up. I have been waiting for this price drop because it means Black Friday sales (yup, it's catching on) will be even cheaper.

It doesn't have to boet. Why must everything be turned into a competition? This is good for those here in SA who have been holding on to their Xbox 360s waiting for the price drop.
