Xbox 360 To Get A Price-Cut
Xbox 360 is the leader in the console war so far, having an almost full year head start above its competitors. The Wii is catching up surprisingly fast, and the PS3 is getting good momentum with sales up 135% due to price cuts.
Sony is a great example of what price-cuts can do. The Xbox 360’s continuous stream of hardware failure seems to be holding its pure potential quite a bit. Microsoft is hoping that a $50 price-cut, added value packs, and an array of different versions will keep the Xbox 360 a strong console.
The versions of the Xbox include the core package, premium package, and the Elite. These systems should start to sell for $249, $359, and $429, respectively, early next month.
There is no doubt that Microsoft is starting to really slow down in the console war. Maybe they can revive themselves with these new price cuts, new games and the limited edition Halo model.
The 360 is a great, well priced system, but due to hardware failure, and the Wii, it looks like its going to a lose the little foothold that it had at the first of this little war.
