    No Christmas price cuts? I thought it was mentioned that they are cutting prices?

    No. They have said a number of times that there will be NO price cuts this year. Also i'm not too sure if they actually need to cut the price. MS are playing a very aggressive game this generation. Got their asses kicked, they didn't like it.

    Some analysts reckon that they may still cut the price this Xmas. It's going to depend on how sales go in the next month I reckon.

    Then again if they are able to hit thier target even if sales slow then they have no reason to cut prices.

    Im just waiting for the PS4, which hopefully will be out 2010 and be a sensible price.

    "As previously discussed we aren't making any price moves this holiday season," Patrick Seybold, director of corporate communications at Sony Computer Entertainment America told Edge.

    I think the PS3 is pretty good value, even at £299. An 80Gb HDD, BluRay drive and built in wifi don't come cheap!!

    There's a 160Gb version out very soon too, 31 Oct I believe

    2012 I would think, no earlier.
