bolt_krank thinks:

Could see this coming. But I think it's a good thing. The biggest setback for these consoles was the price.

About the Atomic article Microsoft cuts US Xbox360 prices

So can you just chuck any old HDD in the 360 Arcade?

$200 for that much eye candy sounds like an awesome deal.

No, you need the Xbox 360 specific drives...and they're a metric arse-load dearer than off the shelf PC hard-drives.

Hopefully we'll see a matching price drop here? Even though we just had one I think?

When I nearly succumbed and nearly bought one the other day it was still $499 for the new 60gb model!

i doubt ours will go that low, we still get ripped on games that cost half as much in the states.

... sooner or later, it's bound to happen. And when it does I'll be there with a loong list of "Best of" or "Platinum" or "Best Sellers" etc. games to pick up cheep cheep.

Man I wish we could get PS3 for 399 I'd snap one up in a jiffy

Can anyone recommend a good importer I'd like a US model

I don't think these savings will occur here as they aren't going to in Europe.

Back when I was younger
I was someone you'd have liked
Got an old guitar I had for years i'd let you buy
And I'll tell you something else
That you ain't dying enough to know

I got myself an NTSC PS3 a few months ago and haven't looked back. So far it's been awesome.

To me it says MS is desperate to stay in the game.

Doesn't matter that it doesn't happen here. I'd rather pay less for games than a stupid console.

Or, pay more for the console for MS to make the ugly looking thing a little more quiet.

At least they got the controller right... if nothing else.

A boatload of consoles rot away because of prohibitive game costs which means they're not worth a crumpet.

Ironically after a year and a half of trying to save for my PC upgrade Im considering giving up and just taking the console route.

I'm waiting for the next SKU of the 360. Hopefully it won't be too far away.

You are not your fucking system specs. You are not your uptime stats, your script file, or your oversize desktop screencap. You are not your broadband connection. You are not your fucking post count.

This angers me so much!
We're finally getting close to the states in PC components but their consoles are sooo much cheaper. To add salt to the wound they pay like $50 for a game we pay $100. I really want to play MGS4! for $450 I could justify the price for both. Here it is closer to $800!
