The world may be waiting for news of a new console, but Microsoft is focused on making 2012 the biggest year in Xbox 360 history.
Wouldn't be surprising, they were no.1 last year and will certainly be this year too since they are the only company who can afford a price cut.
Honestly they wouldnt even need a real price cut. Kinect will be sold at a lower price this holiday which will act as a price cut for the bundle. Either way the 360 wouldnt need a price cut until Wii-U arrived and even then they might not bite. Even Sony cited that the price cut hurt their revenue on their hardware. E3 will really be the answer to everything as we will see how the Wii-U is perceived by the public. either way both Sony and Microsoft will have almost an entire year to sell consoles at normal pace before the holidays arrive.

Microsoft can defy ANYTHING! They're Microsoft! Just pay, that's the only rule.
Where as your precious Sony just get business deals for free? Not sure if you understand what money is and/or know how the economy works...
I think they can do it, especially since we should see another price cut this year.
Beat that Apple Fanboys who claim Apple is the one supreme gadget for gaming.
Sadly this is true.(I am a PS3 fan) With Microsoft able to cut the price whenever they want, and with Halo 4 and Kinect momentum, the Xbox 360 is on track for another peak year.
MS have a lot of momentum carrying on from last year as well as Halo 4 to add to that. If they do have a price cut I think it's probable that they will continue to grow for this year.
I find it funny how Microsoft doesn't even try anymore, except for Arcade, and still gets massive sales. Its painful to watch, especially when games like Alan Wake, Lost Odyssey, and other original games aren't being made by them anymore. The only good thing is that third party games usually perform the best on the 360.
