Roger Ehrenberg of SeekingAlpha submits: "One month ago I came up with a list of things Microsoft (MSFT) needs to do to get the Xbox 360 strategy on track:
1. Cut the price;
2. Deal with the product defect issue head-on and move forward;
3. Make the development of E games and changes to its platform core to its messaging; and
4. Continue to develop leading-edge T and A games for the core gaming audience.
Well, Microsoft just dropped the price of its Xbox 360 line by $50 dollars in the US (no word yet about Europe). Ok, they've taken the first step, although it is a pretty wimpy effort given where the price needs to be to appeal to a broader array of gamers. But price is only a small piece of the puzzle."
