Microsoft quiet on Xbox 360 price cut

MCV: Whilst Peter Molyneux's impressive Fable III presentation was a pleasant surprise for most at Gamescom, the biggest shock of all was the lowering of the curtains with not so much as a whisper of price cuts or new Xbox 360 SKUs.

However, MCV was yesterday told by a national electronics retailer that Microsoft was considering delaying the announcement of its price cut whilst it waits for unusually high stock levels of both the Arcade and Elite to clear from the channel.

Maybe becuase there IS no "price cut"? Pro model just got replaced with the elite which is now Either way, not really a price cut.

There is no price cut. They just did a whole model restructure and you expect them to cut the price? not gonna happen people move along.

Fable 3 !!! have I missed something?

Edit: Nevermind can see like 10 articels about it YAY ! :)

They are already the least expensive console on the market and have yet to see stellar sales. Do you think that cutting the price even more will help? They need to focus more on fixing their hardware and less on trying to gain market share.

Maybe Microsoft will make Live free. I'm waiting on that. Or maybe MS will drop the price to compete better.

ZombieAutopsy3761d ago

That way microsoft still makes some money and save the consumer some. Imagine a word so that wonderful.

qface643761d ago

yeah right and maybe will microsoft will stop loving money

they would never make live free as long as there are people willing to pay for it they will just keep charging

NaiNaiNai3761d ago

Like I said on a related article. This isn't techniqually a "price cut", as the Elite model is only replacing the Pro model at a price of $299.
