What does PS3 have to do with Xbox 360? MS can price the system at $500 since it will be the only next-gen console this year and even then Sony wont launch for another 4+ months...

Quite a lot as they will be competing with each other and not many people can afford to buy both. Thats what the PS3 has to do with the xbox 360.

But they are not competing with eachother at launch... Xbox 360 does NOT have to release at a low price... MS does not have to price to compete... they can price at thier own will till Sony launchs, then they can do a price drop...

The most advisable strategy would be to litter the market with consoles in order to have a bigger base (and more developers supporting it) before the PS3 is launched.

For this strategy to be effective, the launch price shouldn't be too high. Many people usually wait till a machine drops below the $249 line. What if, in the meantime, another machine is offered on the market, probably with an overall better hardware and with a good support of the industry ?

I don't think it's a wise idea to launch a console with a price tag above the 300$
