The Xbox360 chip goes 65mn, and so the price will fall anyway. I hope that in Australia they will cut down the price as well, it is quite awful 700AUS$ for a Game machine (Xbox360) and 1000bucks for PS3, so untouchable things now. Anyway hope it will come soon to us (customers), So I think to get a 360…..

Thread Starter 
I had bought a 360 a year ago (noob pack), and then last summer bought a 20gb HD. I personally am glad to see the prices coming down to a more realistic range, so more people will buy, and more games will come out. Devs seem to really push games for the systems with huge customer bases, and I would hate to see the inferior Wii get all the titles due to its innovative motion controls.

I am not personally knocking the Wii, and I believe that soon you will see similar types of motion controls being made available for the 360/PS3 systems, as I am sure they are wanting to cash in on that cow. $199 for a 360, even if it is a noob system, is a heck of a deal for the technology you are getting, and I think this will really make Sony sweat. Heck, you might even see Nintendo starting to breathe hard as well (cue in the 70's porno soundtrack).

It was never going to happen everyone took the statement out of context. The spokesmen simply said that testing shows that most US familys only want to spend around $199 price point for a console. They never said they would honor or implement that price point.
