THE 360 IS ALREADY CHAPER THEN THE WII IN THE UK

SOZ PPL. CAP LOCKZ STUCK



Around the Network

Wait about a month and drop the PS3 by only 50 and then continue to outsell the 360.



 

My Real Redneck friends


microsoft will go bankrupt and steal money from soney and they will be throwing consoles at each other



They also drop the price. Easy question. Next!



I doubt MS would do that first of all

assuming they did, I think Sony would have to lower the price by $50



Around the Network

I see three things countering the effect of a 360 price drop in the summer/after summer

1. Little Big Planet
2. SOCOM Confrontation
3. Resistance: Fall of Man 2



laugh. then wait for quarterly reports then laugh some more.



Im not sure if M$ could afford much of a price drop.

The need to cut the price in Japan, Asia, Ausrtralia and New Zealand -- first. especially here in Australia ...

In Europe they already did a large price drop. The Arcade pack is cheaper than the Wii their...

In North America due to weak dollar in not sure Microsoft can afford to cut the price ...

Finally -- i can't see M$ making a move aganist SONY untill they know what cards SONY is holding. They already spent OVER $7 billion trying to beat SONY. Only to have Nintendo surpass them... now they in a position to profit for a while while they build up a good reputation and pre-pare for the next generation which will proberly start in 2012... a mere 4 years away...



No one is thinking of a price cut currently. With the falling dollar A), a back log of losses closing to 8 billion B), and steady sales flowing week to week C)- there is no need to introduce a price cut.

Things will liven themselves. Speculation is just that.



Console Agnostic since 2001.

if the price of the xbox 360 dropped by $50 or so, i dont think any game sony has coming out this fall or winter could help sony unless they also dropped their price, because ms's game lineup this fall/winter is so much better than sony is not fair for sony. tales of vesperia,infinite undiscovery,banjo & kazooie,gears of war2,last renmant,sacred2,halo wars,viva pinata2,fable2,age of conan,and many others. sony has a good lineup its just not as explosive as ms's. that's my opinion on the subject, if you agree thats cool if not thats also cool.
