Gaming Thread, Price Drop! in Fun Stuff; ...

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

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???

Blueray player is also going to be a seperate add on like the HD-DVD is according to my source in the US

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 see the Wii is going for £159.99 today (Argos managers special)

Ooh, I can almost afford a 360 premium now Now I'll just wait till GTA4 comes out and I may splash out...

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.
