X-Box 360 Price Drop: $199

Microsoft announced today it will lower the X-Box 360 Arcade to $199 on Friday. With this news, I wonder a few things: (1) is the Wii that much competition? (2) It's September...we're heading into Fall and pre Christmas season shopping will commence. Or, (3) Will there be a new generation X-Box launched this holiday season? 

Anyone planning on picking up this video game console now that the price is reasonable?

hmm. not sure. but they are feeling the competition w/Wii. microsoft will also drop the price of its 60GB Xbox to $299 and its "Xbox Elite," which has a 120GB hard drive, to $399.

The fact that is has no hard drive hurts, but they know that so there must be some people who don't care or they wouldn't have made it.

about the questions....

1- Since last generation Nintendo doesn't concern itself with the 'console wars' at all. They're laughing their asses to the bank since they actually make money off the hardware of the Wii, and the DS might have sold more units than any system ever. I know the Wii has sold millions more than the 360, which isnt a knock on microsoft, but really shows you how little cheerleaders for any system know. 

2- maybe they'll launch a new generation of them, but I would wager that they peaked in sales already. I think most of the people who are going to buy a 360 already have one....they'll still sell more to be sure but I wouldn't expect it to be ashigh a number as the past 2 holiday seasons.

 

The only one I dont have yet is a ps3....Its real expensive and as much as I like Metal Gear and Blu-ray, I dont see enough there games wise for me to shell out another 600 beans for one....I'm broke Yell

You make a good point about about the possible topping out of sales. The Wii's continue to be sold out, while there are plenty of 360's and PS3s to be found... The 360 has been out for so long... Yeah, I'm going to have to agree with you there.

rumor has it, the company is just using the price drop to clear out inventory of the 20GB premium before it brings out a new 60GB version. there's no word on whether a flagship model with a built-in Blu-ray drive is really in the works. i'm guessing the PS3 and the Wii will have some reduction in price before the holidays.

Yeah, I don't think it's worth much of the price if the hard drive is not included. I like most game systems, and have XBOX 360, XBOX, PS2, DS, Gameboy, PSP. PS3 looks like they might have some promising games, but not nearly as much to make me fork over $400-500 for. It's quite a hefty investment considering that new games for these game consoles range from $59-$79. Which reminds me, that I need to play the first Fable, before the second one comes out......I may not be the best at these games, but I sure love to play!!

You're upsetting me....on several levels.

The price on the PS3 is because it is also a blu-ray player for movies.  We went this option so we could buy one piece instead of having to buy two.

 I just bought my wii last week and I love it!! It's so addictive.  I want to get the Xbox for the graphics and more adult games.
