Microsoft's secret plan?
Could this be the strategy Microsoft's been touting for undercutting other consoles? Canadian retailer Future Shop is accepting pre-orders for an Xbox 360 Premium bundle, which - for $500 Canadian - will also include three months of Xbox Live, 1250 Marketplace points, and a copy of Project Gotham Racing 3. That would certainly take the bite out of the current Premium pack, not to mention look a lot more attractive than a vanilla PS3 for $600 US.
