PS3 and Xbox Price drop

i don't know if this has been posted already, haven't been here in a while, but the Playstation 3 has dropped the CND price down $150 (now $549) and down to $499 in the US. And theres also a new 80GB PS3 at $599US coming out this summer. and supposedly the Xbox will drop their price down $50.

I wonder if the $499 60 gig PS3 is going to go extinct like the 20 gig version. New is same as the old, just with twenty extra gigs.

I'm going to be so pissed if Microsoft follows suit. I said to myself, "I'm willing to pay an extra amount between now and January--or even November--to play it for the time between"

I've only had it for a ****ing week. It isn't worth 50 bucks for a ****ing week...

They can lower their prices as much as they like. I'd still rather buy a Wii when I get the opportunity.

No, but a three year warranty means failures become an inconvenience, but not a cost.

Don't worry, there'll be plenty of those coming out, it just takes time to make them.

I'm totally stoked about the 360 price drop, I've been looking into getting an elite, and if the price drops by $100 I'm totally sold.

And my point is that you shouldn't have to deal with hardware failures of any kind in the first place. Not with Microsoft, not with Sony and not with Nintendo.

If the price drop is for all Xbox 360 consoles including the Elite, I should have waited. I bought it when it was released. I was becoming impatient and had to get one. I thought Mass Effect would have been out by now. Oh, well.

I'm hearing that a Konami exec said that MGS4 might go to "other consoles"... so I'm looking closely for what might become....

If the elite does drop to $400 that might push me over the edge enough to buy one.

I'll wait another year or two before seriously considering getting a 360, I doubt I'll ever be tempted to buy a PS3.

I never said 100% of Xbox360s die, but the number of reports you hear is alarmingly high.

I'd skip the Elite and wait for the "Falcon." Then again, if you're too impatient, go for it.

I'm pretty sure Microsoft will keep it's price until the Falcon comes out. Better and cheaper parts = lower cost = price cut. Right now, the 360 is still cheaper than a PS3.

I got the Elite and regular 360. I really don't see the need for the Falcon, because I'm gonna have a billion game saves.

But I'm looking to buy two more 360's, mainly for parties, and the price drop would be great.

The point of the Falcon would be the whole cooler (and possibly quieter) operation of the console. You know, so it doesn't sound like a jumbo jet is landing in your backyard.

I see, and whats the price for the Falcon expected to be? I might buy one of those instead of two more 20GB's. I mean, sometimes it's quiet, but the Core's and 20GB's are pretty loud at times.

The Elite I haven't had any loud noise, well, except when I left it on for 2 days straight.

they also lose less money from the 80GB, they're charging us $100US more when the difference of the 60 and 80GB is really $10US :S.

That'd be sweet, but hopefully it won't be thrown together with 3rd Party parts. That's usually how those consoles go down in price.
