Tesco Slashes 360 Titles To Under £16Supermarket giant Tesco is flogging a selection of high profile Xbox 360 titles for as low as £15.97 in a truly shocking piece of next-gen price cutting. Even though Xbox 360 has been out for a little over a year, it marks a huge decline in game pricing from when the console launched, when the majority of titles were sold for around £50. Square’s Final Fantasy XI and Ubisoft’s King Kong have hit the lowest-ever price of £15.97 at Tesco’s online store, while triple-A Eidos duo Tomb Raider and Hitman as well as Activision titles Gun and X-Men are available for £17.97. This latest piece of ruthless price cutting from supermarket giant Tesco will once again raise fears that price deterioration on Xbox 360 games is already setting in – not to mention the damage to the perceived value of the console’s games.
