Microsoft Cuts Xbox 360 Price in Spain in Wake of PS3 Ban

GameDynamo - "Microsoft announced today through their Spanish Twitter feed, @Xbox360_Spain, that a massive sale has begun effective immediately on 250GB Xbox 360 consoles as well as 4GB Xbox 360 Kinect bundles..."

Update:

We just learnt that Amazon UK has also reduced the price of the both the 250GB Xbox 360 and the 4GB + Kinect Xbox 360 Bundle by £15. It appears that Microsoft is in fact reducing prices for their console across Europe.

I guess its their best bet but people love the PS3 there so they'll just wait

Istanbull3761d ago

We Europeans love our Playstations and our Nintendos, we also miss our Segas.

Xbox? Uh...?

Only a MORON would feel that he can speak on behalf of an entire continent!

Besides, if Sony wasn't stealing they wouldn't be in this mess.

captain-obvious3761d ago (Edited 3761d ago )

loooooooooooooool @ MS

You know
MS would have done MUCH MUCH better
if they didnt just go head on with Sony
they just need to compete with them selves and improve up on what THEY did

MS goal right now
is no matter what or no matter how they do it
they just want to out sell the PS3
which is wrong

If sony got permission from LG this lawsuit wouldn't exist. I feel like i'm replying to a comment constructed by a 12 year old kid in a school playground. What does 360 not having blu ray have to do with anything?
And i think you need to look up the meaning of hypocrite before you go using it again

Child, if you're gonna call someone a moron..
At least spell it right. -.-

And, by the way, Sony did the same thing to LG.
Don't start shit if you can't handle the consequences.
Little bit of Karma? Yup.

I think it's just going to be a matter of time before we see official price drops in the near future. Historically, price cuts are the only thing that really seems to provide longterm sales boosts. Hot games, new accessories, new hardware - those boosts have always been somewhat limited.

JohnnyBadfinger3760d ago

Who the hell disagreed with darkride66?

What he said makes sense... and is the only logical comment in all of this.

NO game has ever sold a console... you buy a console purely as an investment into your leisure time. If your 1 of those people who went out and bought a console solely for 1 game you are what the universe calls an idiot.

Games dont sell consoles, Accessories dont sell consoles... in the end its the price of a console that determines whether someone buys it or not.

And if price is something you ignore you clearly dont have your life prioritized... If your someone like myself and only spend about 3 hours a week playing games. the why would i go out and buy a $500 console?

Goomb: Are you from spain, or are you just talking out of your ass? Also, how many ps3 games are their that use anywhere near 50GBs of data? How many crappy ports have the ps3 gotten because of its blu ray? Yeah we are really jealous that you get to install your games and still have the shitty version

niceguyWii33761d ago

anwser to your last question; none.

radphil3760d ago

" Also, how many ps3 games are their that use anywhere near 50GBs of data?"

How many 360 games needed more than 1 disc?

I can use your own "tactics" against you, you know.

lelo2play3761d ago (Edited 3761d ago )

According to Sony and Microsoft latest numbers, PS3 and X360 total sales are more or less equal in Europe... but the X360 did have a head start of a 1 year and 4 months.

No Way3760d ago

Sony has had a generation and a half lead, over MS.. ;)

Godmars2903761d ago

I actually wouldn't be surprised if EU retailers if not Sony themselves actually upped PS3s that are in stores there.

Dante1123761d ago (Edited 3761d ago )

They got 10 days, MS better get that shout out quick.

cochise3133761d ago

This 360 and PS3 battle is gettin more fierce by the year.

user8586213761d ago

and we benefit from it xD

cochise3133761d ago (Edited 3761d ago )

The way they have been battling it out, is the reason why I don't think we'll see a new generation just yet. Sales have yet to slow down.

Stealth20k3761d ago (Edited 3761d ago )

This is an idiotic article. There is no scenerio where the ps3 will ever be perm banned in europe. Its a 10 day temp. halt to see who owes who royalties. Odds are in less than 9 days they will both settle with each other and everything will be back to normal just like with the dualshock issue.

And people have been saying that ps3 sales have been higher than normal due to this TEMP thing.

Pixelated_Army3761d ago (Edited 3761d ago )

And they have plenty of stock to hold them over until the temp ban is lifted so XP

Goomb3761d ago

Actually the stores have been told to not sell their PS3s until further notice.

Raven_Nomad3761d ago

Well played strategy by Microsoft. I also read somewhere recently where Microsoft is in talks with China to become the only console sold over there, which could in theory bring in tens of millions of new Xbox 360 users.

Personally as an American, I only really care about games that appeal to me, but I guess this is news non the less.

Crystallis3761d ago (Edited 3761d ago )

I heard that was PS3 not the xbox 360. Wishful thinking on your part I guess huh?

Raven_Nomad3761d ago (Edited 3761d ago )

Nah, I wish I remembered the link, but I'm sure it was Microsoft. They would be the ones with the money to get past all the bureaucratic nonsense to get over there.

*edit*
Here is the link

Nitrowolf23761d ago (Edited 3761d ago )

nope it's Both
http://www.joystiq.com/2011...
http://www.joystiq.com/2010...

according to both link, both will try to bring in console while Sony is trying to bring in console and new developers and other.

Crystallis3761d ago

@ Raven,

That link didnt say anything about the xbox 360 being the "Only" console sold in china. I believe both will be available and as well as the wii soon in China.

AhmadCentral3761d ago

Even if they do that, it won;t sell. China has very very high piracy levels. Everything is pirated there. Its why the PS2 failed in China.

Sony are trying to get PS3 sold in china according to a few sources. However they'll not want to repeat the China PS2 launch, they'll want to sell as many consoles as possible.

Not heard about Microsoft and Nintendo but i wouldn't be surprised if they were in talks to sell the consoles in china.

For people that don't know, The chinese govt does not allow video game consoles to be sold in china atm. So everything is pirated there.

niceguyWii33761d ago

that would never happen in china as a knock off that can do the same thing will show up for less then a chinese peanut.
