    Thumbs up Price Drop!

    Hi guys...

    I know someone has mentioned this in a thread but thought i would make a new thread about this.. with source.

    http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=94329

    For people who can't be bothered clicking:

    Arcade = 159 (down from 199)
    Wii = 179
    Premium = 199 (down from 249)
    Elite = 259 (down from 299)
    PS3 = 279

    There is also i rumour going round about Microsoft bringing out a new console called Ultimate which will replace the Elite and the Elite will be new premium console. I am still in the process of speaking to Microsoft to see if i can get an offical answer in writing of them

    Regards

    James

    They're in danger of having as many versions of the XBox as there's versions of Vista :-)

    What's Ultimate all about then, Blue Ray player???

    Let's hope there's a price war so then I can buy both a PS3 and an Xbox 360 Elite....!

    I'm not so sure M$ will bring out a blu-ray drive for the xbox 360 as IMO they'll struggle to sell it if Sony cut the price of the PS3 to around 250. Any add-on drive is likely to be over 125-150 so I think given that people will just buy a PS3 or standalone player instead. That and you're still stuck with the conundrum that most xbox360's dont have HDMI out which I think is required for 1080p blu-ray playback.
    I can also see MS trying to focus attention on their on-line movie rentals which makes me think they may not be that keen to promote blu-ray.

    The arcade 360 which is the cheapest one on the market has HDMI, so I would assume the others do too.

    I was sent a replacement system for my old core 360 and I got the arcade one, and it had HDMI on it. So unless they sent me a premium one without a hard drive.....

    All 360s are starting to appear with HDMI, its down to them slowly phasing it in from what i've been told.
