If you're based in Australia and haven't bought an Xbox 360 yet, or wouldn't mind grabbing a second, or third, or fourth (hey, I've seen people with four or more Xbox's) then this news is for you. Microsoft Australia have just announced that they're lowering the recommended retail price (RRP) of the Xbox 360 and its Kinect bundles.
