PS3 is ahead of 360 by 2.5M since september. a 50$ price cut and slim is nothing compared to what Sony did last e3.

The redesign and the pricecut happened after the E3 @ gamescom in Germany.

And it remains to be seen how a Xbox 360 slim with Natal a $50 pricecut and a Halo-launch will work out.


It was shown during sonys press conference at e3 right?

Oh wow you're right!

Anyhoo, It is hard to predict what any of that will do. Halo will sell a bunch of copies, but it's not Halo 4, 50$ cut at an already more than affordable price, slim isn't much of a difference...Natal is the key to all of this. It will be interesting to see what happens, but it's not like that collection of things is a powerhouse, it's just a collection of things.

A price cut is always a powerhouse. The last one is 18 months ago (except the $50 one  olny for the elite and only in NA).

A redesign is always a powerhouse, look at PS2 slim, PSP 3000 (not the Go lol),  DS Lite, PS3 Slim. A redesign 5 years after release would be perfect.

Natal might be a powerhouse.

But you can bet that MS will spend millions of dollars to let everybody know that there is a redesign, a halo, a Fable, a price cut and Natal. If this really happens (I have no doubts to be honest) MS will make the biggest marketing push in this industry.

There once was a great sig here, but it got killed.

A moment of silence would be appreciated.
