It's official: We've got an Xbox 360 price cut coming to the US. Our friends in Japan announced their price cut earlier this week, but now it's time to roll one out here. As of September 5th, the new prices will be as follows:

Xbox 360 Arcade $199
Xbox 360 $299
Xbox 360 Elite $399

Normally I don't post news like this, but I figured this was significant because now the 360 is officially cheaper than the Wii, which should get a few more folks on board.

Won't be long before the console is cheaper than the games...

Nintendo probably will. The easily can because the Wiis are so cheap to produce. Sony probably wont anytime soon because they are so expensive to produce. They lose a lot of money for each console they sell.

I thought that changed now, and they can make them around equal price for what they sell?

Hmm, I actually do recall. I doubt equal price but probably better. That was at the last price cut tho. Unless they make more changes. ohmy.gif

I'm afraid this will mean more poor white trash and stupid little black kids infesting XBL.

I've played the Wii a few times. I'd never buy one, not unless I had friends or family over alot, I hate playing it alone.

So in other words, more of the same. It's alright, just play with people you know or don't bother plugging in your headset and those pre-pubescent loudmouths won't be (much of) a problem. Online gaming has always been the same, it's just on a much larger scale now.

I find playing older games like Counter-Strike (1.6) is pretty n00b free because its all the hardcore fans that only play it still. That and everyone is fucking amazing at the game and I get my ass kicked.

Nice to see a price cut, but I wouldn't buy a 360 unless I could get Xbox Live.

Haha, nah its on the internet side of things. I need a static ip to play online with the high speed setup I have and depending on how things work out it the next week or so, I will either have a working PSN account (then maybe a xbox live one) or wait till I'm in some sort of post secondary insitution in an urban setting to play online.
