According to UBS analyst Ben Schachter, Microsoft is going to cut the prices across their 360 hardware lineup next month in order to slow Sony's momentum.
: ) 360 is the best. In everything. Period.
including failure rates right? %30 RROD > %-1 YLOD LOLOLOLOLOLOL you're right HAHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH AHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH AHAHA
And it doesn't make me play my crappy dust collecting PS3rd any more. Only a moron would play a crap console with everything INFERIOR...just because my fuking awesome console got the RROD. Trust me, it was torture having only my PS3 to play while my 360 was gone for 3 weeks. You're PS3rd is still a horribly inferior console. It pretty much sucks at everything.

price ps3 wins. price vs value ps3 wins. games with the release of MGS4 ps3 has better but generally they r equal now. reliability ps3 wins online functionality ps3 wins!! and i can give u a more detailed facts if ur xbug brain cant handle it! PRICE cut helped very little in europe and will do something similar in NA! what make any person think that this price cut will turn the tables??
still defending your "perfect" console. its so perfect that John Carmack is already having problems on the 3sh**ty thanks to storage. LMAO dumb bot. its so perfect that the RROD still exists HAHAHhAhAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHH AHAHAHHAHAHHAHAhAH
"still defending your "perfect" console. its so perfect that John Carmack is already having problems on the 3sh**ty thanks to storage" yet he's having more problems with programing for the ps3. i think storage is a small problem. all MS has to do is lower the fee's for mutli-disks. where the programing for the ps3 isn't so easy. especialy just to get the same results as the pc/360 versions.
HEAVY DAMAGE to the POS3 and it's sh1t fer brains fanholes! Sony just needs to close their doors on the cell tech and Playstation Brand. Bring back Sega,Atari, hell,I'd rather own a next gen Colecovision or Turbo Graphics system over any trash Sony shoots out of their bowels onto the gaming world. Basically,Sony sucks along with their buncha d1ckhead fannyboys. tom
untill they give out Xbox360's for free, you won't see me owning one. Paying for bricked hardware is bad enough...
I still don't own one. No one really has a reason to anymore. There's no exclusive must-haves. I really am not concerned. This won't damage the PS3 sales, it will only boost 360's. I don't expect it to outsell the PS3 this year, and if it does, atleast Sony know that they are putting the 360 under a lot of pressure. I don't really care either way about sales, I just want the games this fall, that all happen to be excsluive to the PS3. I really want LittleBigPlanet, obviously, and I want Valkyria Chronicles.
360 is on its way to the grave AND AAIIIIYYYY am giving it the final spray to die a peaceful death with the rest of the RROD systems
So did they(360) struggle in the NPD's again? Seems to be a lot of price cut talk going on.
"I still don't own one. No one really has a reason to anymore. There's no exclusive must-haves. " I feel the same way about the PS3.. I dont like to watch a 20 hour movie. I dont like 2nd life or Sims. Xbox already has a bunch of shooters. Dont mind watching regular DVDs. I'm out of elementary school and too old for LBP. I like a simple online integrated online sytem. I like more of strategy shooter so 60 people online would be no fun for me. 256 would be even worst because with that many people you spawn in and your pretty much dead in the water! "So did they(360) struggle in the NPD's again? Seems to be a lot of price cut talk going on" No. Their console is almost 3 years old with one price cut that was $20-$50 in its lifetime. Its now cheaper for M$ to make the 360 and thats why they are dropping the price. They weren't desperate like how Sony dropped the price on the PS3 after only 6 months in the market! Now that was desperation specially when they were saying people would still buy it even if it was that price and how the PS3 is actually cheap.. LOL good times huh Sony?
... do not affect total demand. When the GameCube was last in sales (as the Xbox360 is now) a price cut had no lasting effect. The same is true here. Expect a temporary boost in sales followed by a return to last place. Reliability issues aside, the Xbox360 simply does not have the universal appeal that the Wii or PS3 have. The Wii's universal appeal is due to it's accessibility while the PS3's is due to it's feature-set. The Xbox360 is neither here nor there.
Nooo waaaayy /sarcasm
we really don't need an article to remind us about that XD
why do you guys even bother responding to that waste of oxygen?? I for one will wait until MS and their constant craptalk pisses off sony and we get a $299 PS3. At that point it is GAME OVER for the crapbox and I will be LAUGHING MY ASS OFF at idiots like the one above.
Wow, making something cheaper will help it sell. I'm sure no-one had thought that before. I'm sure another analyst can give us equally amazing information, apparently water can cure thirst which is a new one on me!
well it will give it a boost for about a month but ps3 will manage to sell just as well or better and it will be 2 times the price thats kinda sad
LOL... More like the same turn around for the 360, seen when PS3 lowered the price by $200 in one year or even greater due to MSFT's future offerings.
Microsoft's future offerings. That's nice. Vapourware 2: The return of Alan Wake Tom Clancy's Vapourware: Sam Fisher Chronicles.
Should i get myself a ps3 i think not because at this moment there is not one good game or AAA game on ps3 don't mention MGS4 because thats not a game more a movie which it miserably fails at that also .As for xbox360 at least that has so many AAA games and games coming out which will also turn out to be AAA games i think i made a right choice purchasing a xbox360
Just buy the PS3, its my advise. BIG game's are comming, just look up and not down ;) PS3 has far more better line up in upcomming years than 360, if you invest the PS3 you will not regret it ;) O one more thing, MGS4 is a very and very good game, only people hate PS3 talk about crap about MGS4. You will be loved this game realy just try, choose with yours own eye's and ears and not from sombody talk crap about the movie thing, those people don't have MGS4 :) And if you don't have money for a PS3, than buy a 360, it has also good game's. Or save some money to buy a PS3 ;)
the xrats have names huh??? i dont get it but i'll go along with it MR xrat pp!! i p on u!! how the hell did u escape my killer spray??? i guess u where wearing an xrats mask which MS provide with each 3RedLight system sold knowing this day will come when the spray will be used against the xrats!! whaaaa haaaaa haaaaaaa
but, whatever you have to tell yourself to make it through the day
the price cut needs to be more reductive
I think its going to be a huge blow to Sony in Europe, 260 euro's for a 60GB 360 is great value whatever way you slice it. We are still paying an average of 400 euros for a PS3 here in Ireland..its a big price gap.
Not really, I had a X360 and a Wii before my PS3 and I realized that they might look cheaper but in reality are also expensive For the Wii I needed to be the Network LAN adaptor + extra Wii mote + nunchuck (otherwise WiiSports is rather useless) + batteries...at the end it costed as much as my X360 premium... For the X360premium I had to buy XBL + play&charge kit for the controller. For the PS3 I needed only to buy a HDMI cable that costed 10 Euro, my mobile BT headset works just fine on the PS3...since then the only thing I've ever needed to purchase are games. So the X360 60GB will cost actually minimum (without any play&charge kit=20 EURO nor wireless LAN adaptor=70 EURO) 260 + 50 EURO(for XBL, add 50 EURO EVERY year as long as you want to play online) = 310 < 400 EURO...so you get a BR player (besides a reliable gaming machine) + built-in Wi-fi/controller batteries for 90 EURO is still really cheap IMHO But yeah, clueless parents don't know about all the extra costs so 260 sounds like a steal...of course it's a good deal for gamers really wanting to play Gears 2 this x-mas...as long as SONY doesn't cancel any of the games to be released this fall, Microsoft can give the X360 away if they want to.
Actually Microsoft already dropped the price in Europe earlier this year, and while they did see a sales increase, they were still outsold by Sony's playstation 3 by quite a wide margin.
I think, he has a good piont. if Microsoft anounce a another price cut, than it will impact Significantly hardware sale's in favor for 360. The PS3 is still heavy price tag, even the PS3 has better buy for your money, the 360 still wins about the price. My opinion is the PS3 far more worth than the 360, becouse the PS3 has all what you want. But in price.........no, 360 is cheaper and therefore it sell more than PS3.
I'm sorry but I'd still rather pay more for a quality/future-proof console. I not going to buy a 360 now because I consider it a waste of money considering there's probably a new one launching in late '09.
I bought a PS3 myself, but I have a job..the average parent does not think in those terms when it comes to making purchases for their kids. Sony have made a poor effort at marketing the value of their machine to the average consumer. We have a large retailer in the U.K and Ireland called Argos, I was flicking through their catalogue the other day and noticed the difference in the Xbox advertising and the PS3's. The 360 had a list of its functions spread across the page in colourful stylised bubbles, media capabilities, HD, online gaming etc. The PS3 advert briefly mentioned Blu-Ray and HD but nothing about the inbuilt Wi-Fi, internet browser, free online gaming etc. While most hardcore gamers are well aware of these features the rest of the target market are blissfully unaware.
didn't they just drop the price?
i heard microsoft is coming out with a blu-ray xbox360. im not sure how true this is, however, if true this will definitely impact ps3 sales in europe and north america (japan, i doubt it).
but I hope M$ do get a blu ray drive s they can stop gimping games and also because they will have to give Sony money and humiliate themselves!
Of course this will help, especially around the Holidays, this year. With the new Dashboard/current library and some great games coming out. It will help. Some must not know how parents shop. Trust me in a time like this they buy what they can afford. Just wait till the holidays.
The General Public is mostly unaware of a lot of the features the ps3 has. Most people find out that the ps3 has wireless built in the console at the store when they ask a employee. Most don't know about the ps3's multimedia capabilities at all. Sony needs to market this thing a whole lot better because Microsoft is sure as hell letting everyone know about live and all the stuff their console does.
yap, I agree
a 360 a waste of money now for some of the reasons mentioned above its just to little to late from Microsoft. dont get me wrong they got a grate live service and good games. its still got rrod problems not many new exclusives and really bad support. the new price will draw new customers but for the future 360 has almost run its corse with maybe a new console from ms on the horizon.
stop reading about it then. That way you will not waste your time also.
What took so long? M$ should have dropped the price long ago. The fact that it took them so long could show that they are happy with the sales. This price drop could drive console sales and help the fall exclusives push software numbers. I could see GeoW2 doing great in software sales. I also see non-exclusives benefiting from this as well. The thing that gets me is that the 360 was suppose to die in fall of 06. M$ is doing well for have a console that died 2 almost 2 years ago.
When people add up the price of the 360 do they always say "but you have to buy a wi-fi adaptor because the PS3 has one built in,thus this makes the 360 even more expensive.........." I dont know anyone who has bought a wi-fi adaptor but MS are giving us the choice to buy it if we want it - it is by no means a nessesity,and alot of people prefer the more solid performance of a cable connection anyways........ For a console that outperforms its hd rival on a mass majority of multiplats and has the likes of Fable2,Gears2,Left 4 Dead,Red Alert3 etc as exclusives, i firmly believe that when the price cuts kick in it that the 360 will be even more of a bargain.
I use cable ethernet on all my ps3s. much less latency.
I totally agree with you. Let the sony slaves blab all they want, but for true gamers who enjoy all consoles especially my DREAMCAST. This is wonderful news, I am definitely going to buy the arcade model for my little sister, she loves kameo and viv pinata.
i dont understand why people aren't talking about the ps3 upcoming price cut? There will be an 80 gig ps3 for $399 in sept, considering an 80gig ps3 sold for $599 at launch, thats makes TWO HUGE price cuts of $100 each in less than two years. So what if the 360 has a price cit after three years on the market? it only had one measly price cut since launch last year of $20 and $50. This holiday season should be real interesting... price cuts, AAA games on both systems... no excuses... the gloves are off!!
Even with the 360 price cut the PS3 is only $100 more. Think about it. The 360 20GB Premium is $300 and the 80Gb is $400. So what's the better deal? The PS3 is the better deal more memory 4X the hard drive space. 1080P only possible on the PS3, Blu-ray player, free online gaming, video service just like XBL, Qore Service, amazing games especially the Fall Line up. -This Fall you have Resistance 2, SOCOM Confrontation, Little Big Planet, Bioshock, Motorstorm 2, Tekken 6, etc. 2009- Killzone 2, FFXIII, FFXIII Versus, War Devil, Heavy Rain, God of War 3, The White Knight Story, etc. -Exclusive Confirmed PS3 RPGs: FFXIII Versus, Disgea 3, Monster Hunter 3, The White Knight Story, Dark, etc. So what do I get for games on the 360 this Fall? Gears of War 2, Fable 2, Viva Pinata, and Fable 2. 2009- Alan Wake (if it ever comes), Splinter Cell Conviction, FFXIII, etc. I'm just saying if your a gamer and your planning on getting a console just think about these facts alright. At this point on what's the better deal to you guys. PS3 Wins hands down it's no competition. SOCOM, Resistance 2, and Little Big Planet is already enough to get people to buy a PS3 plus the other exclusives.
