Early adopters looking to snag an Xbox 360 with all the bells and whistles will find themselves paying for the most expensive home video game console in a decade.


Seems like bad press to me........ dry.gif

QUOTE
At the German Games Convention in Leipzig on Wednesday (August 17), MS



announced that a 360 packaged with a wireless controller, 20 GB hard drive, headset and cable for hooking up to high-definition TVs will retail in the U.S. for $399.99. No new game system has sold for that price since the launch of the Sega Saturn in 1995


QUOTE
With pricing laid out for American gamers, questions will now turn to software. While no game makers have announced price increases for this holiday season, analysts have predicted since the beginning of the year that console game prices, which typically range from $40-$50 for new titles, will see a $10 increase as the next generation of hardware is released.


Lets see if the casual gamer is gonna like the high prices........

Those prices will be dirt cheap when the PS3 rolls around at prices so high they're "not for households"

maybe this will be Nintendo's comeback generation laugh.gif

I will not be able not getting the 360.. but i can understand other gamers holding out on buying another console untill they have a comparison ...

I never heard of the rev releasing at the same time point.. all i heard it was the last console to release...

With kind regards
Marco

lol, there are 2 point of views, ps2 was released on USA at 300$ so the xbox360 is damn expensive.
But here, in Europe, ps2 was released at something like 500Ä so xbox360 is damn cheap, I am just happy that 400$ = 400Ä (even if it would more be 350Ä), in place of 300$ = 500Ä.

Are you sure on that twisted? I've seen multiple articles saying that the rev will be launched last, in late 2006 or early 2007.

we are just saying what we heard. and the last I heard was rev would be out sooner or at the latest, the same time as ps3.

youre welcome to look for new info. If I cared enough Id search, alas I dont give 2 poopies when either one of those hits US soil.

My bet is the rev comes out around Nov or Dec 2006 at the extreme earliest. By the looks of E3 Nintendo isnít any where NEER done with it. They didnít even have a controller prototype for Christ sakes! laugh.gif
