If I didn't have a 360, I'd wait a bit longer for the $100 price cut and, most importantly, for all the faulty Xbox 360's on the market to clear out first.

"crappy price drop" - are you serious?? whether it was a $5 f'n coupon or a $200 reduction, it is still cheaper than it was. Or are you comparing it to the temporary price drop that sony has so nicely given to us?

mboojigga3950d ago

Are you comparing this price drop for a system that has been on the market for almost 2 years vs a system on the market less then a year that needed to a price drop? Yeah Okay

...because they are smart. a price drop is a price drop, no matter how small it is, it is still a true drop compared to what sony did which was just basically the old switcharoo. the ps3 prices are still $500 and $600 and by MS doing this they are essentially saying to Sony: "Its your move byatch"

the ps3(60GB)price cut force MS to drop the price of all the x360 SKUs.

A console is *supposed* to have a price cut at this time in its life cycle. In fact, 360 is overdue for a price cut. 360 is the console that has lasted the longest without having a price cut.

A product is not "supposed" to have a price cut

Price cuts usually occur based on
1) pressure from competition
2)liquidation of old product line to make way for new

DirtyRat3950d ago

If you buy a 360 now, you'll most likely get one which won't be faulty, but I agree the proce drop is pretty poor really, and Europe doesn't get it either which sucks considering the US price is already massively cheaper.

the_round_peg3950d ago (Edited 3950d ago )

The news story is here:

Those leaked photos show an upcoming price cut in Europe. But the story is posted under a ridiculously obscure and irrelevant headline, and so no one has even noticed the news about a price cut in Europe.

sjappie3950d ago (Edited 3950d ago )

or a sale at Mediamarkt to get rid of the old 360 hardware. It also says one console per customer, wich is strange for an official price cut. But I hope they will drop the price in Europe so I can replace my premium with an elite, I hope for 400 euros.

Zhuk3950d ago

its better than nothing but more needs to be done to get this system cheaper in all territories, not just the United States

Odion3950d ago

its going to be cheaper in NA, and Europe, and Japan already has a price drop.

Look if the 20 dollar price cut of the Hd-DvD player can boost its sales by 1000% then this will do something.

Again though, it lasted longer then any other system without having a price drop.
