Amazon sneaks in 120GB Xbox for $300

TVGB: "Let's break down the financial forecast for the current console market. At GamesCon yesterday, Sony finally unveiled its slimmer PS3 with a 120GB and much celebrated $299 price tag, due out on Sept. 1 in the U.S. and Europe, and two days later in Japan. Not only are internet retailers ablaze with preorders, they've also marked down the fatter current 80GB SKU down to that same $299 price point. If you've been here or at any other gaming site in the past 24 hours this is nothing new, but I'm not going to let redundancy keep me from properly setting up this article."

Elite price drop is an obvious reaction to slim model. Selling 60GB model at the same price as another console with 120GB makes PS3 look like it has much more value. However by pricing elite same as slim they can level the HDD advantage off.

Expect ps3 to use games and bluray to show off its own advantages.

ABizzel13762d ago

It seems like a good idea, but you don't get the headset, HDMI, and I forgot the other thing that comes with the Elite so you might as well cough up the extra $100

I would just buy an elite over this.

deadreckoning6663762d ago

i thk people are confusing fear and insecurity for common sense. If ur competitor drops the price, then YOU drop the price.

Major_Tom3762d ago

Of course you would Murderdolls, you're a hardcore Xbox fanboy! Thanks for playing.

-MD-3762d ago (Edited 3762d ago )

Hey at least I have something to play right? Lol.

I basically just agreed with Abizel1 and he got 5 agrees while I got disagrees.

Makes sense right? People will agree and disagree with people based on who they are and not what they say. Only on N4G.

KillaManiac3762d ago

sneak? its been more common knowledge then all the million rumors of PS3 Slim/Drop (before announcement).

We have known this at my retailer (gamestop) for a while that the "PRO" is being whiped out and "ELITE" it taking its 300$ price.

They shoulda took crappy Arcade out and put Pro in its place...IMO

Ri0tSquad3762d ago (Edited 3762d ago )

No headset? No HDMI wasn't a problem for me but no headset? Damn, MS is going backwards. No wonder why it's $300.

@ KillaManiac

That or a 20gb 360. The 360 arcade will cost you more down the road, definitely not for the people that want to play online, download demos and videos, and play XBLA games. I believe some online games require an HDD. That 512MB of space will fill up quickly.

-MD-3762d ago

No it's just an arcade unit with a 99$ 120GB HDD and they're calling it an "elite"

The actual elite console comes with a headset the arcade unit in which this article is showing does not.

Read the article.

FamilyGuy3762d ago (Edited 3762d ago )

He's our he-ro
gonna take pollution down to ze-ro

How much was the 120Gb HD before? This is interesting, VERY interesting.

Based on other prices it was $150? and the arcade was $200
They were $350 to begin with, is the headset really worth $50?

A headset and HDMI cable (that's no longer included) surely isn't worth an extra $100...

Someones getting really insecure. Less then 1 day after the PS3 price drop, Xbox follows.

Yes, def. great for gamers -- I would go for the PC + PS3 combination.

GiantEnemyCrab3762d ago

"Someones getting really insecure"

Are you kidding? What a stupid thing to say.

Bnet3433762d ago

The Xbox 360 Elite was said to be $300 before the PS3 slim became official.

-MD-3762d ago (Edited 3762d ago )

Someones not very intelligent! The elite was leaked at 299.99$ a week or two before the slim was announced.

meepmoopmeep3762d ago

i don't think the Elite dropped price yet

at least not standard, maybe selected retailers putting up a sale
but standard? no.

-MD-3762d ago

There are sites all over the internet leaking info on the elite being 299.99$

Keep the disagrees coming though.

meepmoopmeep3762d ago (Edited 3762d ago )

you edited your post.

you said it was $299 two weeks ago

The Wood3762d ago

Everyone and their gran knew the ps3's price drop was coming to be fair but companies react. All companies react, pre-empt etc....its business

-MD-3762d ago

"you edited your post.

you said it was $299 two weeks ago"

Huh? My post still says that.

beardpapa3762d ago


there were rumors, "leaked" pictures, speculations, and everything else about the possibility of the PS3 slim being announced soon and a price cut looooooooooooooooooooooong before speculation of a price cut for the Elite. =P

It was already confirmed so nothing new.

LumpsRGood3762d ago

Indeed a great deal for gamers, but I wonder how many will search for mixing and matching? Hope this is a sign of things to come, except all in one package.

meepmoopmeep3762d ago

yeah, it would be more ideal if it came in a package instead of a consumer having to hunt for it

still a great deal though

edwineverready3762d ago (Edited 3762d ago )

will the slim be the only one on the market eventually or can you still buy the 80gb in the years to come. Anyone know the answer?

evilmonkey5013762d ago

did sony offer the original ps2 when they came out with the ps2 slim?



It's cheaper to make.
