They won't announce a price cut because they just have announced new bundles in Europe.
They won't do it in NA because they will announce a white PS3.
They have just released a new PS3 bundle in Japan.

My words : It's FAKE!

But I think the 360 will have a price cut now and at the end of the year.

April =>
Arcade : 250 $
Premium : 300 $ without a game
Elite : 400$ without a game

October =>
Arcade : 220 $
Premium : 279 $ bundled (Mass effect & ...)
Elite : 360 $ bundled (Mass effect & ...)

A $79.99 wii would make me buy it, its cheaper than guitar hero 3.

i think microsoft will drop it price to $250 when gta4 launches and sony will drop it to $300



tag:"reviews only matter for the real hardcore gamer"

Doubt it will happen.

But if it does with their line up it will be a all out attack to severely weaken the 360 in NA and pretty much kill it in the rest of the world.

 who wouldn't? If it was only $80, then hordes of ppl would want a Wii too - worsening the already bad stock situation

Believe it or not sony isnt trying to take out xbox they want to take out wii.

Give me some of whatever it is you are smoking.



America = Best Gaming Console

Europe = Best Game Developers

I imagine that gta 4 is the big game for both consoles for the year (in terms of sales), cut the price of the ps3 and the Xbox 360 will be logical to increase sales of hardware
