"Sony, which has repeatedly said that it will not drop the price of the PS3 in the near future, is worried by Microsoft's move, as the PS3's high price has been an issue for consumers throughout its existence.

And if they package in a motion sensor controller that suddenly pops into existence then we'll really know their game...

I hope MS knows that wii is selling like hot cake 'coz of their controller and game selection instead of cheaper price tag.

I must have missed a recent statement by Sony where they say they're worried. lol

Until MS releases a game call Xbox 360 Sports, or one with a certain Italian plumber, their not going anywhere

Its so funny how that Italian plumber is so popular. Actually its bizzare when you think about what the game really is.

Microsoft, unless you have Mario, Zelda, Kid Icarus, or Samus...you won't reach Wii numbers.

I am sorry.
