$199 Xbox360 Not Enough To Stop Sony

Times have changed but in this case the change has been astronomical in Sony's favor and the price point advantage of the Xbox360 doesn't seem to hold any weight any more. Since the launch of the PS3 it was plagued by a non-mass market price but now in terms of the console war Sony is not only fighting but they are breaking barriers.

I just bought myself another xbox 360 elite 120gigs hdd with a black controller and 2 games WAW and Halo 3: ODST all for $400 aus dollars. It's a great deal stock last's till September 30th.

unfortunately $199 doesn't eliminate RROD.

SNE won this war when they lowered the price of the PS3 and dropped the SLIM; everything else is gravy & whip cream. Feature-wise nothing could ever stop them, but with the price drop it's damn near unfair for SNE now; and only people who eat their own boogers disagree with that.

HipHopGamer still supporting PS3 eh? wonder how long it will be before he goes back to supporting 360 again...

Till the reports come back in. Ironically for this type of article (at the time of writing this) there are no reports for a HHG article. WUT!? Wonder why

so I'll let this guy do the talking:

A price drop will encourage some to buy one but in the end, the majority of folks were waiting for Sony to drop their price. There are now millions of PS2 owners that are willing to jump on board with the PS3 and for the upcoming years we will see Sony take what fanbase is theirs and push for first place in the console war. It was said years ago, that Sony only needed a price that was for the casual market, now they do and the sales are showing it. 1 million consoles sold in three weeks... Now that is a record for the PS3 no matter how you look at it.

Sarcasm3161d ago

Well it's also noted that when the 360 was dropped to $199, there was no selling 1million in 3 weeks.

But let's just forget about that and get back to gaming.

My Forza 3 download is 80%, cant wait.

agreee with what he said there, i dont think a 199 xbox would be enough to stop ps3.

microsoft should do something in japan, because thats the place microsoft is loosing the most.

The Great Melon3161d ago

Once a machine gets below a certain amount I become numb to any price drop after that. So far PS3 price drops feel like considerable drops that make it much more affordable. I think xbox hit its sweet spot awhile ago. The ps3 still can probably drop one more time before it feels like it will hit its sweet spot. Might be rambling here, but that's just my opinion.

Sarcasm3161d ago

The PS3 can go to $249 if it needs to in the future. We won't see $199 for a lonnngg time.

TrevorPhillips3161d ago

Oh I forgot to mention which store I bought it from, I got it from BIG W. :)
