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........
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
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........
