The image above is from the Video Game section of Target’s online storefront announcing “free shipping” on a $299.99 Xbox 360 250GB console with Kinect bundle. Pretty sweet. But if you click you’ll find the regular $399.99 price tag.

So it looks like retailers are getting ready for price drops on the 250GB Kinect bundle before E3. Either that or it could just be a mistake? We should know soon either way. Our money is on a price drop.

Today Archos has started shipping their larger capacity Archos 70 with a spinning 250GB hard drive.

The main differences would be the lack of a Micro SD card slot, along with the expected increase in size and weight to accommodate the large 250GB HDD. The Archos 70 250Gb version is available for $350 with the Archos 70 8GB SSD version costing $275.
