I'm kind of surprised MS didn't try to match the Wiis price point with the core. It would have been interesting to see how those two went head to head.

Now all MS has to do is drop the price of the after market 20gb HD to $50 and the 120GB HD to $120.

Aren't all 360's tainted with defects?

The price drop is effective in Canada as well AND MS has somewhat taken into account the change in exchange rates http://www.xbox.com/en-ca/community/news/2007/0806-consoleprice.htm
(near $100 price cut across the board).

I would still wait awhile, and hope to get one without the defect. My brother in laws 360 just died and his was a newer model than mine. My 360 will probably die the day I get my Ace Combat 6 flightstick combo.


fixt for stupidity :D

You'll have to excuse me, but engrish is not my native, so I was kinda shocked at what you wrote... Further examination revealed that I should probably read more and think less...

Good thing on the the price drop; it should mean that my brother will get one soon :)

But mine just died on me a couple days ago, even though I haven't been using it that often at all over the summer. The prepaid box should get here on Thursday or so. Manufactured 6/22/06

Good luck with that... it has been 2 or 3 weeks and I still haven't received my box :\.
