There was some rumors floating around that XBOX prices were going to drop another 50 bucks today... anyone heard if this is indeed true and if so... when will it happen if it doesnt happen today?

(by the way, Sony has shipped out 40 Million PS2 so far!)

:p

here's the link: HERE

Why am I not surprised to see an Xbox thread then dead messiah trying to **** on the fire :rolleyes: .

Both the Xbox and PS2 have recently been cut in the UK so I see no reason why they won't get cut in the US. Down to 159 (xbox) and 169 (PS2).

It's been said that each Xbox costs around $450 to make, so at $150 Microsoft would be losing $300 per system sold.

Even neo1980 gotta admit that's not good business...

:cheeky:

;)

If it goes down to $100, maybe even $150, and some good games (ones that appeal to me) I'll get one...

:o

I guess only time (and poor Xbox sales) will tell...

It's hard to believe that such an awsome peice of equipment can sell for so cheap. Sure the lower the price, the better for us. But as far as I'm concerned, the Xbox is worth the price it was when it first came out. Even then I thought that was cheap for being the best system ever... by far. Face it... Xbox rulez!

I was just joking around about the rules stuff...

I was just posting how even at a lowered price ($200 in USA) Microsoft still can't sell the Xbox, I mean it's the truth.

[edit] i deleted some posts/edited some so i'm not the anti-xbox person, now i'm just an anti-making everything lime green & anti-micro$oft person

$299.99 (Canadian) at Futureshop

http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetai...98A08D454862F9D

I gotta say that if the price drops another $50 to $249, thats too tempting and I'll probably end up picking one up. I always told myself that if the xbox dropped between 200 to 250 i'd probably get one

btw..is it possible to buy an Xbox system bundled with the S controller rather than the other one? i dont see myself using the bigger one if i buy one, so it'd be a waste..

Nope, standard controller. The only way is to import from Japan as that's the only region with that controller as standard.

Isn't microsoft making/releasing a new version of the Xbox later this year with something like UltimateTV built-in it?

I thought I saw something like that on TechTV before...

$50 USD would drop it here to the Gamecube's price, $229. That might be nice............;)

It starts to look much more interesting at that point, plus mail-in rebate for free DVD kit.

hell yea...I already have a gamecube so i'm enjoying that goodness, but if the xbox drops below 249 even, i'm going to get one for sure.

even at 299 i feel sorry for the suckers who bought it at 450 or whatever insane price it was when it first came out
