When is Microsoft's Xbox 360 Price Cut Coming?

1 min read

Bruce Everiss has written a very good article over at SeekingAlpha.com asking when the next 360 price cut is coming…

In essences he says the following…

Sony are losing a truck load of cash currently on the PS3 and are even selling less important pieces of its company to keep the department alive.

Microsoft are made of money and the 360 is now making a profit on every console.

Microsoft will lose their current gaming domination advantage next year.

The 360 is currently as technically capable as the PS3 and is easier to manufacture.

So since the PS3 is starting to catch up with the 360 and we are obviously not going to see a price cut before Christmas it is logical to think that we may receive a large price cut in February next year to counter anything the PS3 has to throw at it.

Bruce even goes so far as to say that if Microsoft time it correctly it could be a knock out blow for the PS3 in the States… I think that may be going to far though.

    Does the current bundles not count as a price cut/deal?

  • doobiwan

    Technically it’s had one already but we didn’t get it here we got the bundles, but he is right. (can’t believe I said that, the seeking Alpha guys are usually just full of sensationalist junk)

    360 still has a very strong position as is and are still trying to record a full year of profitability. I imagine they’ll drop the price pretty much as soon as the shopping season sales boost dies down. I bet around Feb.

  • Sony isnt losing that bad, the ps2 sales are stil booming…. and all analyst predict the ps3 to catch up and very possibly take over 360

  • LazySAGamer

    No not all analysts… some analysts expect it to fail completely this year.

    I personally don’t see the PS3 overtaking anything in 2008 at least and unless more things start changing I see no reason for it to ever overtake the Wii… or the 360.

    Maybe you flogged your 360 to early?

  • boredhousewife

    I think all consoles have been on the market for long enough to identify certain trends.
    X360 will be the market leader in NA & UK or finish a very strong second.

    PS3 should beat the Xbox in PAL and Japan but will still be behind the Wii.

    Wii will continue to dominate and sell as many consoles as Nintendo can manage to make.

    I agree with the article that an XBox price cut will set the cat amongst the pigeons a bit

  • doobiwan

    Agreed. This isn’t a console war, this is foreplay.

    2008 the gloves are going to come off and we’ll start seeing some real fighting.

  • JjKiCK

    Games sell consoles and unless PS3 launches some exclusive titles that are really amazing things are looking bad for PS3 in 2008.Look for GT,Tekken and Metal Gear otherwise goodnight PS3!!!!
