announced earlier this month that it would offer two versions of its latest game player. Here in the U.S., the newest Xbox will be for sale for about $400 with a 20GB hard drive; a stripped down version will retail for around $300.

Infineon shares closed Monday up a penny at $9.53 and were not active in the late trading session.
