I posted on Thursday about the rumours that the 360 Arcade is going to drop to $199 in September. Well the new rumour is that it is also going to see a bundling of the motion controller and some mini-games developed by Rare.
Honestly it’s a blatant copy of the Wii’s marketing idea, but it’s one that could end up being a stroke of genius from Microsoft.
If people take notice they will see that not only can they get a top end HD console for the more hardcore gamers in the house, but they can also get the motion controlling mini-games for parties and everyone else for less than the Wii.
Or Nintendo may counter act the move by slashing R2000 of the local price of the Wii (or about $100 elsewhere).
Or the most likely scenario, no one takes the motion controller for the 360 seriously and the Wii continues on with it’s ultimate domination of all things gaming.
