Xbox 360 price drop?

Might be an Amazon specific thing, but they’re doing a 14% discount on the core system, which suggests to me that MS are doing some discounting… either that or Amazon are taking a gamble that you’ll buy a bunch of full priced peripherals to support that.

In any case: stack £180 for an Xbox360 against £425 for a PS3, and factor in the additional 5 months headstart MS still have and what do you get…? Have Sony messed it up big time, this time?

I suspect that I might actually end up getting my first-ever Nintendo console (before I get the new MS/Sony ones) if they can get the WII to work, and give me a decent sports title and hack-and-slash game… we shall see!
