That's only in America. Last time I checked, this site was for people based in the UK.

We've already had our price cut, the next one won't be (at least) until end of October/November.

That's in America. They haven't had a price drop in ages. (Excluding the 'fake' on they had last month.) We've already had ours, in February or something. I don't anticipate us getting one for a while.

This is a good price for Elite. I wouldn't get the Premium right now, as that's probably going to get upgraded to 60GB very soon.

That is very possible but would you not rather wait until it is officially announced as USA ONLY price drop before buying one now?

Its only 32 days away according to the leaked information............

Any way M$ is currently in 3rd place in Europe so it makes sence to drop the price even further here.

The head start didn't do anything for them. PS3 sales have surpassed that of Xbox360's in Europe

There's never a looser. Just happens that someone has to be in 3rd place. I have all 3 formats and do not judge one over the other.

Do your research...

http://kotaku.com/5019800/microsoft-say-sony-are-fibbing-360-still-in-lead-in-europe

MS say Sony are fibbing. Given Sony history of quoting shipped sales as actual sales, i'd tend to agree with MS on this one.

Your BBC article concedes MS are still ahead in the UK, it's the whole continent of EU that Sony is claiming to be in the lead of.

Personally, i'd be really surprised if Sony were actually in front, in terms of actual consumer sales.

Not that any of this matter, y'know....

I said Europe NOT UK.

Sony made an official announcment of sales while M$ make brash comments in interviews stating Sony is lying about European Sales figures and say they are still ahead in sales. You mention false figures from Sony but how many 360 sales are due to red ring\faulty 360 replacement's for people with no warranty (like the xbox 360 flash community)

People can believe who they want but in the UK M$ had sold 2m Consoles since Dec '05 upto April 1st '08 Sony has sold 1.75m since March '07 to April 1st '08.

World Wide Sales for both consoles for '07 PS3 = 8.83m & 360 = 7.3m.

Now whether the people buying the PS3 are folks making the jump to next-gen from the 130m+ PS2 owners or are Xbox360 owners buying a 2nd console after owning the 360 for 1+ year already is another matter.

I choose to believe Sony placing Xbox 360 in 3rd place in Europe.

Yeah I know you did. I'm just saying I wouldn't base my conclusion -- ie. your statement that Sony was in the lead in EU -- purely on what Sony said, which is what your two articles say. Those two articles, BTW, came out before the article I linked, which was MS's rebuttal and claim of the lead a couple of days later.

Yeah you make good points, and I think the stats you've quoted are all kosher from what i've read too, I just choose to believe that MS as of right now, have greater overall EU penetration, in terms of actual consumer sales, rather than just shipping sales.

Pal Sales Figures for this week and Total Sales in each region. As you can see The 360 has more sales in the UK & Scandinavia but falls behind in Italy, France, germany, Spain, & the rest of Europe.

Xbox 360 has more sales in Australia and other remaining Pal Territories as well as NTSC sales in North America/Canada

The PS3 has more native Japan sales.

So like I said PS3 is ahead in Europe making Xbox360 3rd so a price cut could happen in europe along side the US one.

What's who sold what got to do with a price cut in America?

Sales don't really have any bearing on profit. Microsoft are turning a profit, cutting the price might boost sales slightly but you just lower your margin overall.

We had a price cut just before the GTA launch. America is due any time now with the release of Madden, as was the case last year.

Also Europe sales have no bearing on a price cut as it's done regionally. Each country gets a price cut depending on the Microsoft division in that country.

We will get one before Gears of War 2 no doubt, and then usually it's only a cut of about £20 or so. If a £20 saving is worth over a quater of a years wait then you know what to do :thumbsup:

It'd be nice to have a cut, but I'm not holding my breath.

Im talking to a brick wall here.

I am saying wait 32 days if you can not a quarter of a year. If there is no announcment for a UK/Europe Price drop then go ahead and buy a 360. or even wait a week and buy one from Amazon then if it does drop in Europe on Sept 7th you get the difference back.

NO BODY knows if there will be one or not but best to cover your base's if you can. :thumbsup:

But this doesn't address one of my initial points: Sony still counts shipped, not actual consumer sales. It's apples and oranges. I can't open the link you've attached here at work, so I can't verify the source. If the source was Sony themselves, then i'd be very dubious.

Anyway, I respect you think MS will make a price cut. It's just, looking at the history of console price cutting, I believe November/December is more likely than Sept. for EU. Sure it might be simulatenous like you say, like Sony did with the introduction of the 40GB SKU, I just don't think so. I think it's been to recent in EU for another one.

Anyway, I didn't mean for HUKD to turn into Neogaf. Full props my friend, rep added.

You have a point. As much as I don't think we'll get the Sept. price drop, it's worth waiting to see if we do. It's only a month away. You might even get a Jasper.

There is no September price drop for Europe the same person who said hold out for that is also I think you will find told everyone Xbox Live would become free so hold out for that (on the Xbox live cam deal) LOL..

About the 6th post down....

If he wants to make these claims he should make a discussion about it NOT put it in between these 360 deals and taking the deals off topic..

SALES OF CONSOLES ARE AS FOLLOWS _
Europe or OTHERS as it is also known as it includes Australia sales etc are -

PS3 Total sales to date 6,795,707

360 Total to date 7,332,347

USA -
PS3---5,455,899

360---12,088,774

WORLDWIDE TOTAL SALES -
PS3--- 14.56M
360---- 20.06M

This looks like a good deal which has been taken off topic maybe deliberately..

I think chelskii is more correct with those figures I would be amazed if both the PS3 and XBOX 360 have sold a lot less than 10 million units since release. Hell, I've already bought 5 of the ******s in under 2 years :)

OK, So by me saying it might be worth waiting 1 month to possibly get a better deal is taking this off topic? NOPE

I can come in here and say "might be worth waiting for a POSSIBLE price cut" what you cannot do my friend is say "There is NO Sept price drop for Europe" Mine is a suggestion yours is stated as a fact. I do not need proof to back mine up but you do.

And yes I did say that there was RUMOURS that Live was going to be free and the rumours were as it turned out only for Live on Windows which was also posted in the tread, that is Now free and Shadow Run on Xbox 360 is also now free as it links with Live for Windows.

Oh and this is NOT a good deal as pointed out by other's in this thread. You can get the elite cheaper else where.

And your sale figure's are freely available in the link I priovided in my post back one page and they state clearly that PS3 has more Sales in Europe then Xbox360. and before you start the Fanboy Slurs check my Gamertag 95% of my gaming time is spent on 360 I am just stating a fact with regards sales.

I agree Sony do count shipped as sold but VGChartz get their information from Retailers and they also compare manufacturing dates to consoles sold etc etc so the figures on their site are as close to accurate sales numbers as you are going to get out side of official un-released sale's figure's from the manufacturer.

As for M$ making a price cut in Europe I would not say YES they are definatly going to make one just if you are in the market for one at least wait 30 days and see.

Rep returned, great discussion :thumbsup:

Sorry, i didn't mean to come across as a fanboi! Admittedly I don't own a PS3 (yet) I just thought that that the xbox 360 was doing well over here, at least in the UK anyway. I find all the sales figures quite interesting, although it would be interesting to see how much profit/loss Nintendo/MS/Sony are making at the moment including games and peripheral sales.

I'm just hoping the rumor that sega maybe coming back into the console market with a Dreamcast 2 are true. In their current state it seems very unlikely. I can't remember the last 'decent' game they made :(

Back on topic, this deal is definitely not hot irrespective of any potential price drops happening soon

Xbox 360 this week = 14,268 Total sales to date for UK = 2,445,445

PS3 this week =12,693 Total sales to date for UK =1,461,009
