Xbox 360 Pro phased out by end of this month?

That’s what Kotaku thinks, as they’ve posted a snapshot taken from an upcoming August 30th retail catalog that shows an Xbox 360 Elite being advertised for a hundred dollars less than its original price. We usually don’t get involved in the rumor mill, but whisperings of an Elite price cut and Pro phase-out have been recently picking up steam on the internets. And with the rationale that Microsoft would need to respond to the ever-looming-and-inevitable-but-still-unnannounced PS3 price cut or PS3 Slim, perhaps this latest info does hold some water. In any case, Microsoft’s keeping mum for now, so we’ll have to wait until Gamescom to see if they decide to spill the beans.
