Very True. I dont know if MS will do a Worldwide price drop

Wonder why one console has a $50 drop and the other a $30? If this is real and a sign of a WW drop this would be devastating to the 360's competition.

" Is this true??? If so, the Christmas will be heated between Sony and Microsoft!"

Yeah in Portugal but if the cut ends up WW in the coming months it will be murder not a heated battle.

I'd be surprised if MS does a universal official drop but I can see drops in countries Sony is dominate in. $150 xboxs would sell like PS2 shaped hot cakes.

By the sounds of it, it won't make a difference in Portugal, where the article is from. The 360 needs a price cut to stay relevant World wide. Good move from MS if that is the case.

Buddymagoo , YES it is a Sonyland. Like 500 thousand PS3 vs 50 thousand Xbox360. But we have too agree that it is a great move from MS. Im a PS3 fan but i hope that MS do better her in Portugal. Everyone should have the change to have all consoles.

Relevant? You say it like it doesn't sell.

Portugal is indeed a major Sony stronghold. I remember reading an article late last year stating that between the PS2, PS3 and PSP, Sony had over 80% total market share. The Move controller was completely sold out for months, you couldn't find it anywhere. I kid you not, it's that crazy!

However, I think the recent price drops will have a bigger impact on the 360's sales numbers. €150 lands straight in the "impulse purchase" territory, and it might get many gamers who already own a PS3, to consider Microsoft's system. If you have the chance to own both systems, why shouldn't you?

Do you honestly believe what you always wrote or it just for the giggles??

Looks like MS just won this year by a landslide lol

This is fake.

"Xbox consoles 4GB now costs € 149.99 (€ 199.99 before), and the Xbox 250GB € 219.99 (before 269.99) "

These price drops were already made many months ago in Portugal i guess its because most people prefer Sony and Nintendo around here and MS is trying to get attention.

moodgamer2655d ago

This is not fake. In July MS did a promtion in ALL BUNDLES XBOX360 , KINECT also had de 50€ drop. Now its the Price with no limit date.

im not talking about bundles neither kinect.

These price drops were already a reality around here ( not in every store ) if you want to belive it or not.
