Well basicly having 360 go head 2 head with ps3 at $300 is insane, because ps3 has more money for your buck
but lets say a $200 360 slim vs a $300 ps3 slim is where Sony is gonna sweat because it puts 360 at equal value......
So in the end, the console war between these two will be decided on the games
Not to sound fanboyish, but after $100 for the wifi adapter you are sitting at both consoles being $300 again.
And then PS3 still has Bluetooth, Built-in controller battery (for 360 I think it's like $50 for the battery pack? Been awhile since I bought mine) and a Blu-ray player..
Casual Gamers dont care about that stuff, all they care about is the console price....So seeing one way cheaper that the other is a huge advantage
besides I never use those things on my ps3 anyways....So its just a waste
you don't use blu-ray!?!?
im talking about the wifi and blue-tooth on ps3...plus since I bought Dark Knight I havent really been watching blu-ray movies as much since the redbox were I rent my movies still dont carry them, so I just watch hd dvd's on my 360
plus I bought the rechargable battery pack fon 360 for only $20
I mostly just play games on a Gaming Console
excuse me for a minute....
The price points for 360 is the base cost. They expect the console to be bought for kids or people who don't know any better, or who don't want/need anything more than the arcade. In every situation, 360 is the most expensive console this gen...it's just that when you first buy it, it is the cheapest.
The ~200 dollar area is impulse purchase level for buying consoles. 360 is already in it, PS3 is one foot in it. But that's a different story for a different day.
