    It seems to be the case, which would mean great news for all of us. Realistically now theres no excuse not to consider buying all consoles at some stage. If the Xbox does drop down in price its on my xmas shopping list ^_^ Then it would join up with my PC, PS2 and GC.

    It was announced yesterday. I think PS2 is £170 and Xbox is £160. Effective as of this Friday.

    I work in retail, and the above is correct. XBOX 159.99 and PS2 169.99 from tomorrow (30th). Rumours abound the GAMECUBE will be 99.99 in time for Xmas.:eek:

    With that in mind there really isn't a massive excuse now not to own at least 2 consoles... I wonder if these pricecuts will happen in the USA and Japan as well since I can't touch PAL consoles until the games will get a 60hz option as standard.
