If 360 has a price cut, the most in danger would be Sony, 250$ vs 400$, sure it IS an solid argument. So i really hope that rumor come true and Sony replicate with a 100$ price cut before the release of LittleBigPlanet, Resistance 2, MotorStorm 2, etc...

LittleBigPlanet could bring a new genre of gamer, the good middle between the casual and the hardcore, and i price cute would be even more attractive before the launch of that game. Sure, PS3 is a luxe product, but it still have to be competitive, and with two consoles at 250$ and one at 400$, it would be hard to stay competitive, no matter the other arguments.

Agreed...Sony might ACTUALLY have a price cut. Or offer a good bundle. All in all i think Microsoft is starting to get a bit...desperate?
