I think that if microsoft doesnt do the following they're making a huuuuge mistake: On the day that the ps3 price drops the 360 should be lowered at least this much (obviously all of this is just my opinion)

ELITE--->$400
PRO----->$330
CORE---->$250

EDIT:
And i just realized that if MS actually does this it might hurt nintendo's profits because they might have to lower the price of the wii as well.

HOWEVER IT MAY BE THIS IS CERTAINLY HUGE NEWS

P.S. TO ALL XBOX BROTHERS(AND SOME PS3 BROTHERS TOO BUT NO WII BROTHERS, WII SUX SORRY :-P): "YOU SCRATCH MY BACK I SCRATCH YOURS" PLEASE GIVE ME BUBBLES.

@AKA

Fact is 5 years from now all three consoles will be ridiculously cheap and most gamers will have all three - except the fanboys, of course.

But here and now, there's still alot of brand loyalty out there and when the price is right, there're alot of quality games and a great net service then those owners will buy the brand they trust.

I for one will eventually get all three.

hikikimori3488d ago

IN a ps3 you get:-
60 gig Hard Drive
Built in Wireless
Blue-tooth connectivity
4 usb 2.0 ports
Memory card readers
BLU-RAY DRIVE!
not to mention the cell chipset etc..
It was worth the price at 600 its way worth it at 500.
You get a whole lot mre future proof, standard, top of the line stuff in this puppy than you do with any other console.

no_more_heroes3488d ago

sure...... BUT THAT'S STILL $500! It doesn't matter how many bells and whistles the ps3 has. I'm not paying $500 for a game console. Never have, never will. At least now they only have $200 left to go.

tehcellownu3488d ago

why do i keep on hearin that ps3 have no games from xbots?? have they been livin under the rock..im not goin to bother to list the games..lol..gettin tired of doin it..but hey if you goin to be a fanboy the ps3 for 499 is a great price and truly the elite..while the 360 try to clone it..lol..

VaeVictus3488d ago

It's still better IMO than a premium 360, even at $600. You get everything (rumble on it's way) the 360 can do and then some. IN addition to that, it is WAAAAYYY more reliable. My 360 is about to go back to the store for trade in. Don't want to risk another one dying on me. I can live w/o Gears and Halo 3.

GuCCi5123488d ago

thats what i have one and if i had the money i would buy it again....why because that machine is flippin awesome...and plus it plays blu-rays...and i can connect my bluetooth headset to play resistance online....and it can browse the internet and that new ps3 only website is pretty cool....and dont get me wrong i have a 360 2....

Why o why3488d ago (Edited 3488d ago )

300 quid would be good

clownfacemcgee3487d ago

In the States, it's 600 USD which is about 300 GBP. You guys just get screwed 'cause Sony hates you. =)Have a nice day.=)

Well it does makes sense and perfect timing too. After Sony shows off their killer apps plus this price cut, the consumers who are holding out will be more convinced to get one compared to before.

TheExecutive3488d ago (Edited 3488d ago )

499 is a good price for what you get... I know people are going to disagree with this, but show proof that its not.

edit: someone disagreed, show me you can get the same things for a better price anywhere.

Rythrine3488d ago

You know, I've noticed this for some time now. It seems like every PS3 thread, there's someone out there lurking in the shadows who has a weird fetish with the disagree button. I remember Bathyj. All he did was ask a question and he got a disagree lolz.

aiphanes3488d ago

It is $480 + $100 for the microsoft wifi adapter + $199 for the HD-DVD addon + $50 for a year of Xbox Live = $829!!!!!

Halo 3

The PS3 is now $499 and includes a industry standard 2.5 inch 60 gb sata drive, a bluray drive, 802.11b/g wifi, industry standard memory card reader, 4 usb 2.0 ports and industry standard bluetooth 2.0, the ability to connect up to 7 bluetooth devices, and 5 free bluray movies!
Also the PS3 has gigabit ethernet. Free online access is included with the PS3. also the PS3 support 7.1 pcm sound and upscalling of all PS1/PS2 games and DVDs to 1080p. DVD upscalling on the PS3 is way better than on the xbox 360 elite.
Warhawk

Mr_Kuwabara3488d ago

The Warhawk in the end was super random.

GuCCi5123488d ago

right on man....and u know some people just dont understand technology.....

maybe ill buy another one....???

Alvadr3488d ago

I can believe how much Americans moan about the price of this console. Here in the UK this machine is £425 which run through the currency converter is $856!!

The PS3 is selling really well over here, not meny people care about the high price. I feel it is worth every penney.

SofaKingReetodded3488d ago

to the x-girls on this site you will notice that they are keeping some kind of list of PS3 fans. THis doesn't sound like "kids" to me, more like microsucks viral campaign making sure it shuts people up who want to educate others about their crap console.

Ill give some bubbles...can you give me some bubbles? :D

+1 for you :)

drtysouf21, Rythrine, EZCheez, LeonSKennedy4Life (we broght you back to full strengh once we can do it again :D), Marona and Arsene_WANGer +1 for you too ^^

Rythrine3488d ago

Kaneda and Charlie...I'll give you both bubbles. You guys need the ammo.

EZCheez3488d ago

I actually just lost a bubble giving about 20 other people positive feedback. Ironic, isn't it?

We could always just start another profile like SO MANY other people on this site do. It's not that hard to notice them.

On topic though, does SPG saying this actually make it official. Are they any more official than us fans on this site? I want to believe it too but I will wait until I hear it straight from the horse's mouth (Phil or Kaz).

LeonSKennedy4Life3488d ago (Edited 3488d ago )

Dude...that was the funniest post I've seen all day!

I gave all of you bubbles.

I'm just saying...with a Heavenly Sword Avatar...you'll lose bubbles because it's a PS3 exclusive. A few people here don't seem to think those games are good enough.

Marona3488d ago

So... anyone going to tell me whats the bubble for? lol

no_more_heroes3488d ago

and I'll think about it. :)

DrPirate3488d ago

Bubbles from me too. We're outnumbered, we need the ammo.
