Rumor: No Xbox360 Price Drop Because They?re Bundling HDDVD?

by cars4less201 / June 28, 2006 11:43 AM PDT

"This a bit of rumor mongering, so take it with a mouthful of salt. A "reader" tells us his "insiders" say the Xbox 360 could be skipping the $100 price drop because they're going to bundle their HD DVD drive with new Premium consoles. Bundling as in just selling both the external HD DVD drive with a standard console and not making the drive internal, like we excitedly thought when we first heard about the rumor. An interesting theory that makes sense in combatting the PS3 onslaught. We'll see come fall." Gizmodo

If they're really bundling it, I just hope they do it right, and I don't really have to use it like the picture on the article is showing.

what a deal!

that'd be pretty awesome if you didnt already have a 360. that seems like *really* cheap no?

I talked to a pimply guy at EB, he said the price drop isn't gonna happen b/c it's already cheaper than PS3, and I have to agree with him. The whole get a 360 and Wii for the price of a PS3 thing is kinda hard to overlook. Prolly makes best business sense to leave the price as is.

I wasn't plannin on goin hd dvd, but for 100 bucks, hell id do it then!

That might be a good deal for the ones that are going to buy it.

BUT, that might be a bad thing for those that already bought it. Imagine a guy that bought it one year ago and now will see his friends paying the same amount for more stuff...

Hum... I don't know about that....

How is that really any different from the guy who bought it a year ago and is now seeing his friends get the same thing for a lower price? That's the price of being an early adopter.
