Another UK retailer cuts the price of a GameCube with a game.
Another retailer has made a significant reduction to the price of a GameCube console. Last Christmas Argos stores drew attention by cutting the price of all Playstation 2 games to £29.99 (usual price £40 - £45). A GameCube including a game is now available for £80 (around $126). This equates to a 30% decrease from the launch price.
Other recent price drops have included the Dixons Group stores, with the GameCube and a game for £99, and all games reduced to £25. A decision to abandon GameCube sales followed depending on the outcome of the promotion.
Sales of the console in Europe are over 1.5 million since the launch last May. Playstation 2 sales are still far ahead, but it is thought that the sales figures are very similar to those of Xbox in most European countries.
