Price Drops All Around
Gamespot has reported that both the PS3 and the Xbox 360 have dropped their prices.
In August the PS3 will introduce a newer model with an 80GB hard drive with the current model dropping from $599 to $499.
The Xbox 360 is dropping price on all of its models with the Elite possibly going to $399 and the regular editions shaving off $50 from their current prices.
Is this odd? Not really. A lot of people saw this coming. It's also pretty common. While each system fights for who has the better sales the bottom line is all systems are doing fine. The question is how will they keep going. The problem isn't so much the price of the systems (well, maybe a little) but whether the games are worth playing. Make better games and people will come.
