226w ago - It appears the rumor from last week was accurate after all.
We now have a date for the Xbox 360 Pro model, with the shot (below) from a Meijer catalog due on August 30, 2009 and indicating the XBox 360 Elite is in line for a Pro-sized price cut to $299.
To quote: You'll remember, of course, that the origins of this rumor - Ars Technica's ever-reliable Microsoft mole - are that the 360 Pro is being phased out, taken off the market entirely, and that the 360 Elite will have its price slashed to that of the Pro to compensate. This will leave only two 360 consoles to choose from: the cheap, hard drive-less Arcade and the 120GB HDD Elite.
This will leave only two 360 consoles to choose from: the cheap, hard drive-less Arcade and the 120GB HDD Elite.
'Lo and behold, according to this catalog, that move looks like it'll take place a couple of weeks from now. So long, 360 Pro model.
226w ago - Over the last few weeks we've heard from Belgium, French, Spanish and now Italian retailers reporting that PS3 price drops are in the works to make room for a new PlayStation 3 Slim console's arrival.
Today an employee of a large Italian retailer has confessed the following on NeoGAF under the username zallaaa, to quote:
"I can confirm the discount for Italy. I work for a big consumer electronic shop and we just received some bundles (80gb PS3 + Pacific Rift) that will be priced 299€.
Also I got an almost official confirmation that the discount is for emptying the channel for the slim version which should land the 30th of August (at least we should receive it on the 30th). 399€. The color is not sure, but silver it seems."
That being said, hopefully all of these reports will be confirmed on August 18th during Sony's 3-hour conference at GamesCom in Cologne.
227w ago - Well, it's not the big price drop everyone is anxiously awaiting, however, PlayStationLifestyle.net (linked above) did notice that Amazon.com has dropped the PS3 160GB price by 10%... meaning $50 off.
To quote: "Amazon.com has reduced the price of the 160GB PS3 Bundle that features a copy of Uncharted and a voucher for the downloadable game Pain. The price has been reduced 10%, so you can score the PS3 for the low(er) price of $449.
No word at how long this offer stands, so act now to ensure you can take advantage of the lowered price."
That being said, if you were planning on getting Uncharted: Drake's Fortune anyway it may be worth doing so while the deal is still on.
