EEDAR Analyst: XBox 360 Price Drop Coming Within a Week

50°
280w ago - According to an analyst with [Register or Login to view links], the Xbox 360 price drop will happen within a week.

That's right, the Xbox 360 price drop will no longer be rumor or speculation seven days from now, says EEDAR's Jesse Divnich.

Instead, the Xbox 360 price drop will be reality within one week's time - and maybe within the current week.

To quote: "EEDAR is pleased to see that the PlayStation 3 has finally dropped in price. The new PlayStation 3 pricing scheme finally makes the Sony console a much more competitive product, relative to its closest rival, the Xbox 360.

In terms of value, the PlayStation 3 is a superior hardware product in comparison to the Xbox 360; however, this is not to suggest that hardware sales will suddenly shift to Sony's favor -- a superior hardware system is only one variable in the equation for next-generation success.

Nevertheless, the PlayStation 3 price cut will act as a positive catalyst that will close the sales gap between the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. This price drop also places the PlayStation 3 at a competitive price to the Wii (retail MSRP $249).

While the target audience for the two platforms varies greatly, some consumers will face a tough decision to purchase the Wii with outdated processing...

280w ago - We've heard numerous PS3 price drop and PS3 backwards compatibility rumors several times over the last few months, but today SCRAWL is reporting the following (albeit unofficial) confirmation from their local Sony Rep, to quote:

"Over at my local GameStop (where I work), our Sony rep stopped in earlier today to update the PlayStation 3 kiosks and check in with us.

I decided to ask him about all the rumors going around on the PlayStation 3 slim. When I asked him about whether or not is coming he told me this:

"All I'm going to say is this: both a price drop and a firmware update with backwards compatibility are coming soon."

Directly from the mouth of a Sony rep. GamesCom is next week, folks. Don't be surprised if you hear the announcement."

Titan Studios Announces More Fat Princess Fixes Are Coming

50°
280w ago - Less than a week after the previous Fat Princess patch was issued to fix multiplayer connections comes news of more fixes in the works, as follows from Titan Studios:

I am happy to report that we have found the issue related to trophies, stats and scoreboards. Not only did we find it, but we think we have it fixed.

This is thanks to detailed bug information provided by many players - but especially Boko577. Boko, by the way, is ranked number one in Warrior Gladiate. Fear him. No word on timing of a fix, but we've got it, we'll test it, and roll it into a future update.

Speaking of Scoreboards

As all but 1,000 of you are no doubt aware, the scoreboards are currently limited to the top 1,000 players. We are working with Sony to have this cap removed, so all players can see their score. Just to give fair warning, this will happen with a future update and when it does, all scores will be reset to zero.

This will allow all players to be on the boards and in the race. BEFORE ANYONE FREAKS OUT: We are working on a way of doing this that will allow you to retain your unlocked Get Fabulous options. K, NOW FREAK OUT.

To the top 1,000...
