Great idea to space out some of the BIG game releases. Halo 3 in September and GTA4 in October.

If MS would throw in a $50 or $100 price drop on the 360, they could move a LOT of systems with these games out. :rawk:

I will be putting for two days off that week. If not the entire week.

With those games coming out, it's even more reason NOT to drop the price. They'll move systems themselves, at an overall gain since the systems will cost more(even if they sell a few less).

By that logic, taken to the extreme, MS should NEVER lower the price as each new blockbuster game just adds value to owning the system, right? :D

Of course, they could wait on a price drop, and see how many systems move at $300-400, with Halo 3 and GTA4 out, THEN price drop when things slow down. I'd rather see them spur on sales with even a $50 price drop though, and do it in August. Winning this Holiday 07 will put the 360 well enough ahead that the PS3 will NEVER catch up, though the Wii might lead sales this gen when all is said and done.

Of course Sony can force the issue by dropping the PS3 by $100, which would be matched by MS (probably). This means gamers win, of course, which is the beauty of competition.

Yeah, got this email this morning. Glad they've moved it up from November. The early Beta must have gone well...

not really about the success of the beta, as it's rumoured to come out in september for months now.

Yes they did move it up. It is in testing right now. Sounds like everything is going well with it.

Sounds like your personal theme...


I have to buy this one because I'm addicted to the multiplayer (yet continue to be a mediocre player) and don't like playing on xbc, xlink, etc...

Yeah, but I've been waiting for a sale...

Got in on the tail end of a sale, two copies for $40 each, plus two collector's edition copies for $60 each. I'll keep one of the basic copies and sell the others on ebay to pay for the one I keep plus a little profit.

Where'd you find it for $40?

I'd go for that.
