How is this news? If I said Microsoft would drop the price of 360 this year it would be filed under "NO SH!T SHERLOCK!" yet when he opens his mouth its treated as something that is happening.

CVG PLEASE STOP giving this moron attention?

Sainsbury's had it at £120 recently which is already lower than $199.

You can pick them up cheap 2nd hand, have seen them for £80.

I think he's assuming the ps4 going for 350 to 400 dollars, might be more than that and if so prehaps we wont see a price drop.

I see a price drop closer to the time when ps4 is released.

wow, what on earth are you talking about?

gaming magazines have announced console price drops since consoles and gaming magazines existed. search this site and you'll find news stories for each and every time the 360,ps3 and every other console had its price dropped.

He is talking about Michael Pachter giving guesswork about a PS3 price drop. And I also agree CVG shouldn't post anything about Pachter. He's a fool.

Maybe Stone will finally get one.

Nah


Pachter at it again............

“I think [Nintendo] misfired on the Wii U. It’s just not that different from the other two [existing] consoles, and the gameplay isn’t as unique as the Wii. They made a mistake, it’s something they probably can’t recover from.

“I think they have made a costly mistake. And their handheld business can’t save them in the face of cannibalization from smartphones and tablets.”


Get it out of your system sentinator :lol:
