I'll believe this when i read it from a more reputable source. There are contradicting artcles out there. Course, the same thing happened with the Ps3- CEO's said no price drops, and look what happened.

Wow! I'm so thankful I waited. I've been wanting one for awhile but the price was just straying me away since I just spent $1200 on computer parts.


Halo 3 calls me...Price cut helps

VAT rates

The VAT Directive 2006/112/EC of 28 November 2006 (Official Journal L 347, 11.12.2006, p.1) provides in its Articles 93 to 130 and Annex III and IV a legal framework for the application of VAT rates in Member States. Member States have made and continue to make wide use of the possibilities offered within this framework; as a result, the situation is in practice disparate and complex.

The basic rules are simple:

* Supplies of goods and services subject to VAT are normally subject to a standard rate of at least 15%;
* Member States may apply one or two reduced rates of not less than 5% to goods and services enumerated in a restricted list;
* They may also, under certain conditions, apply a reduced rate to certain labour intensive services (annex IV).
VAT(Value Added tax) is one nasty beast.

XBox may have faults, but its games selection is still the best.

PS3's library is catching up, and I may buy one in 1-2 years, but right now the X-Box looks on course for victory in 2007.

Soccer moms and their Wiis don't count. The only game I've liked on the Wii so far is Resident Evil 4... patiently waiting for Metroid!

I'm going to need an actual quote like, in quotation marks, before I even take a second look at this link the OP posted.

Oh yeah:

Sony haters just got pwned.

I'll believe the Xbox 360 cut when I see it.
