    Microsoft is to cut the UK price of its Xbox 360 Elite gaming console by £30 to £199.99 and by $100 to $299 in the US.
    It comes in the wake of Sony's decision to drop the price of its PlayStation 3 to £249 in the UK and $299 in the US.














    The price of Xbox's entry-level model the Arcade will rise to £159.99 from £129.99 - although its US cost remains the same at $199. :ugh:

    so? They want to make people buy the elite. Its business. And despite how smart you think you are, Microsoft definitely knows how to make money despite their fuckups.

    :bowdown:

    Lets force people to buy the more expensive console by raising the price of the entry level system.

    I dont know how smart you think you are but thats pretty fucking gay.

    why don't they do away with the arcade one anyway?

    if they did they could put the price for the elite even lower!!!

    But then the 360 elite wouldn't be elite anymore. It would just be 360.

    So?

    What are you arguing about here?

    It's called competition and business.

    If PS3 lowers its price again, the 360 will follow again. Or vice versa.

    And :greddy: to anyone even wanting to buy a non-elite. They're just trying to make more money on a lesser model, which is not a travesty.

    Would you rather the 360 not have a price drop at all? There would be no way it could compete with the ps3 then, not to new buyers unless they are totally stoked about getting a 360.

    Actually I wont be buying another 360.

    and way to address the bolded text. They put UP the price of the entry level 360 to facilitate the elite price drop. I know a lot of people who buy the arcade because they already have a HD etc. Its a cheap alternative to replace a fucked up console.

    Are you suggesting microsoft arnt aware of that aspect?

    If you wait long enough, he scratches his butt. Then it goes into a cutscene which lasts until the end.
