No X360 Price Drop!?!

According to Gamerscore Blog (written by employees of MS Games Global Marketing), there are, "currently no plans for a price drop this fall" (emphasis theirs). The blog entry goes on to read that due to this fact, you should buy an X360 now; there's no reason to wait. This is an interesting announcement in the sense that, prior to launch, MS promised to "cost-reduce" the X360 each year.

Parsing the blogger's words a little more carefully, he states, "currently no plans" this fall. That's a sneaky way of saying, tomorrow, a week from now, a month from now, we may have plans. It's also a sneaky way of saying that summer or winter may see a price drop. In other words, there is a lot of open-endness to his statement.

Of course, MS doesn't need to drop the price to sell units this holiday season. The PS3 and Wii are sure to be in short supply and the price of the PS3 is prohibitive. MS will have tons of consoles ready to be sold and a great line up of games.

My guess will be some sort of bundle package which may add value to the console. This may include a game(s) or an extra controller. In that sense, it'd be a "cost reduction".

Only time will tell.
