Forums - Sales Discussion - How long will the effects of the 360 price-cut last?

4 weeks of beating PS3 in sales in America.

1 week of beating PS3 (maybe) WW.

Back to normal next week.

its a much needed boost, short lived but it will keep the 360 ahead of the ps3 in NA for a couple months.

should drop a bit in the next 2 to 3 weeks back to maybe 65.000 ish



I think it will last 2-3 weeks including this week. Then its going to sell around 65k a week in NA.



It might outsell 360 this week WW (although I wouldn't expect it), then it's back to normal

What it proves is there is still an appetite for the 360. Thats all that matters.

If the price is right and supply is right at christmas... then the 360 will outsell the PS3 in the states.... and that will be very significant in the long run.



I'm not really here!

its weeks like this that make me genuinely beleive the 360 will stay above ps3 sales till 2011, and by that time the next xbox will be just around the corner, also remember that microsoft KNOW when the right time will be to drop the 360 to $199, they said themselves they have a rough date pencilled in for this to happen..... hence the ps3 aint catching up to 360 anytime soon.... BELIEVE

 

You know that MS doesn't really care if they're 2nd or 3rd? They just want to make a profit, and a price cut doesn't usually help.

 I'm sorry but 100k a week after a major pricecut is hardly an appitite.

If we are to go by all the negativity for 360s on this forum, I am surprised the 360 sells more than 15 consoles a week.  It must be offering something to counter all the failings of M$ and their failed box.



Till supplies last.. then back to same lack luster sales
