It may be the smallest and blurriest photo of all time but it this image is to be believed then the much rumoured $50 360 price cut, which has been hinted at for a few weeks now, is just around the corner.
MS loves guys like you. Washing machines have three year warranty. My car has 5. PS3; 90 days! 360 with a 3 year extension for ONLY RROD. ALL OTHERS GET SOAKED!!!! My name is a Mark. First I pay $399.99 then I pay for accessories and ONLINE and blah, blah, blah. Then in 3 years MS will give me another Xbox so it goes like this: THESE MARKS LOVE ME!!!! A sucker is born every second...Now I believe it!! I thought it was a legend but I see it is true all along. Some people will be suckers for anything. JUST ANGLE IT RIGHT and you got em HOOK, LINE, SINKER!!!! Hey, youre covered WHEN it breaks!!! WOW. $399.99 + $59.99 LIVE + HD-DVD $199.99 + $200 in accesories = $859.97 not including games.

I don't feel anything anymore for 360 LOSERS...Get lost Mark. Get Lost! MS: We need to grease this pig...suckers I mean...THEY WILL BUY ANYTHING we sell even for $50 less. Don't worry they have the comfort of the THREE YEAR WARRANTY ONLY for RROD!!! SUckers.
why did you even bother to get up today. Your comments are about as funny and welcome as a getting a punch in the face. We all know the PS3 is a good piece of kit but guess what, so is the 360. The ultimate gamer will buy one or both and rejoice in what has to be the platinum age of gaming. The lamer will buy one and poke fun of the other and do nothing but to expose him/herself as being a complete drop kick. Gee, I wonder which one you are...
meh, stop talking sh!t out of your ass. I have a three year warranty on my ps3.
I don't even think you will get PS3 fans to agree with that one, LOL your all alone bro.
coolmatrix you fail.
x360 now is the least selling console in th world. ps3 has overtaken x360 in sales in JULY,2007. www.vgcharts.org no one complained about the x360's price since no one wants a defective console. PS3 has now beaten x360 in sales all over the world INCLUDING USA/NA www.vgcharts.org
I hate to rain on the parade but look closer at the ad, where's the small 99? All the other items on the page have a small 99. Bad Photo Shop job maybe? I don't doubt there will be a price drop of $50 soon (Aug. 8th) but don't think this is it.
...Still not enough. IMO
I say the $50 price cut is coming for sure.
Everyone knew it was comming, just if this is true...it seems like sooner than later.
that will be really interesting to see. =) though for gta4 and halo3 fans 249$ maybe is the best choice. =)
The ONLY leaks is your WALLET buying crap 360s for $50 less. You guys are the reason a SUCKER is born every second!!
At $249 the 360 will be priced the same as the Wii. And with the new warranty in place 360 sales are sure to pick up. The release of Halo 3 in a couple months won't hurt either.
While I agree totally that a price drop is great for the 360, remember, the Wii is making money per console sold, so ninty could just as easily issue a price drop too. I think that many are forgetting this fact too - don't think I am a ninty fanboy - I have serious problems with their attitude towards european game releases, but as thier tech is so cheap, they could concieveably drop the price too - and my question is, what kind of impact would that have on the industry?
All I seen was the 20gig 360, no anything else.Good news though
That's an article just a few days ago that nails down the exact date for the price cut to happen: August 8. Maybe now that there's a leak, Microsoft decides the price cut should be sooner rather than later.
IF IT GETS A PRICE CUT. THEN CONSUMER WILL GET THE WRONG MESSAGE ABOUT MICROSFT XBREAK 360's WAREZ
The system has been out almost 2 years man. People will get pissed if they don't drop the price. And if people did get the "wrong message" what does that say about PS3 and its price drop in less than a year?
I guess fanboys didn't worry about the message sony was giving by doing a temporary price drop within 8 months of it coming out.
Conspiracy theory time! The $50 difference is actually a $50 dollar gain on the core! Just another way the man is trying to milk us dry. Edit: wow it's a shame people on this site can't take a joke. I guess they would rather just fight about who owns which console.
I don't want to get my hopes up, but typically having a leaflet like this appear means it is coming in the next few weeks. I don't recall a leaked leaflet ever not resulting in a price cut. That being said, even if they cut the price in America, there's no way of telling if it will be cut in England too. Lately it seems Microsoft have completely forgotten we exist. Which is unfair given that we're one of the "European" countries where the 360 still outsells the PS3.
Ole Bill G needs to show you guys more love.
Mehh, wont haev much of an affect. Getting rid of core, cutting Premium to 300 and elite to 400 would have been big.
the modders would be upset, so I have read. And I am sure M$ likes bricking there modded boxes every so often making them have to go buy another CORE Xbox 360.
sony drops by $100 microsoft says wer the price drop we dont see it then they drop by $50 WTF!!!
it's not really a price drop when you are droping the price for 1 month to get rid of the the 60gig sku.a real price drop is when you drop the price and keep it that way. that why MS said where is the price drop.
vega, you can try to call it something else but it is a price drop. Before the 60gb was 599, now it is 499.
For those lucky enough to get one before they sell out, it's a price drop. For everybody else, it's not.
while any cut is welcome, $100 would be nicer :)
that they wer planing for a larger cut but since they found out that sony is dropping the 60gig thv gone with a cheap $50 cut makes sence it still gives them room for a further cut this Xmass
I think by Nov. their will be another $50 price drop.
It seems to me that this ad shows an x260 without the hdd add-on on top. Correct me if i'm wrong.
they wouldn't sell an xbox without a hdd for 350 cus then they would be raising the price of their core system
