I think this will really hurt sales.

The anti-price war

UNTIL SONY STARTED mouthing off about how expensive the PlayStation 3 is going to be, things were looking pretty purdy for the price of the Xbox 360. Now with the release coming closer and closer and speculation hitting new highs many are thinking that Microsoft will raise the as yet unannounced price of the Xbox 360 from an expected £200 - £250 to as high as £300.

This is expected to be done for two reasons – for one, with the price of the PS3 expected to be magnificent, Microsoft can raise the price of the Xbox 360 and still not be the most expensive console on the market. Secondly for brand purposes if the Xbox 360 is significantly cheaper than the PS3 – up to £100 cheaper, perhaps – then to consumers not as in-the-know as somebody who has been following every inch of these two machines as they have been developed will see the Xbox 360 as an inferior product.

Maybe this means that Microsoft might actually make a profit off of the Xbox 360? One thing is for sure, the consumer sure as hell won't…

Please don't compare a PC to a console. 101 millionth time.

Aside from the fanboy (PS3 is better woot) comments. Yeah this stinks but it won't stop me from still buying it. Nothing will keep me from playing PGR3!!!! :beer:

No. I orginally thought that M$ would release the 360 at $360 USD. Seems like a logical price point, and when the PS3 debuts at its $400+ price point MS could just drop to $300 or even below.

The ps3 cell processor just kills the 360's processor....its not even close. As for gpu they are about even.

Ps3>>>>>xbox 360 in power.
