    I finally have enough money to buy a 360, but im afraid that when i buy it a price drop will be announced at E3. So is it likely that there will be a price drop?

    Well its possible. Since E3 is right around the corner, I advise you to just wait until then [​IMG]

    Very high chance of announcing a price drop. The catch is, nobody knows whether it'd be $30 or $50 (or else).

    E3 starts july 15th, so just wait it out. I've read rumors of $30 price drop.

    I don't think $30 price drop will have much effect.

    Pros go from $349.99 to $319.99, people will still recognize it as "over 300 bucks"
    Arcades go from $279.99 to $249.99, OMG the same price as Wii!

    I don't think people were choosing Wii over 360 because of the $30 price difference in the first place. Matching Wii's level wouldn't necessarily get people who were originally thinking a Wii to change their minds. If Arcade becomes CHEAPER than the Wii, then hell yeah.

    To be really effective, Pros need to drop down to $200 range, be it $299.99 it sounds a lot cheaper than $319.99 even though there's only $20 price difference.

    Interesting, so it's likely to be a $50 price drop?

    If the Arcade/core drops to 199$, I might consider modding...

    That ad only showed the 360 Premium, but I suspect a $50 drop on the Elite and a $30 drop on the Arcade.

    I'm not sure that they can afford to make it cheaper than the Wii.

    However, if that Ad is indeed accurate, you can expect to see me on Xbox Live in a couple of weeks [​IMG]

    Sold his soul for $50.

    Nah just kidding. At least I sold my soul for $4k.

    If MS announces Price Drop, Nintendo would follow; "Our low price gives an extra edge, we must hold the high ground!" Maybe couple dozen bucks? Maaaayyybe. And Sony will cry.

    TBQH, Sony will most likely just include the 65nm Cell in all PS3s and a different Blu-ray drive to make it cheaper. I suspect the 40GB lowering to $350 and the 80GB going to $450 if what I speculate is the truth.
