Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) has confirmed that they are cutting the prices of the Xbox 360 by about $100 as revealed by the leaked Target circulation ad.  This matches the price drop that the Sony PlayStation 3 made last week.

Both the Xbox 360 Elite and the PlayStation 3 costs $299.  The price drops apply worldwide, but varies based on currencies.  Microsoft currently has 3 versions of the Xbox 360 at three different price points.  The Xbox 360 Pro will eventually be phased out but will cost $249 while supply is available.

The Xbox Arcade, which does not have a hard drive currently costs $199.  The price cuts will be effective by this Friday.  The Nintendo Wii has not announced any price cuts and will stick around the price point of $250.

Over 31.4 million Xbox 360 consoles have been sold thus far.  The PlayStation 3 has sold about 23.7 million units, and the Nintendo Wii sold about 52.6 million.
