I just read somewhere that xbox might be 200.00 because not only can ms do it but they are really going to get profit at selling the games, so i geuss they should sell it for 200.00, also it would definitely beat gc at launch, and i thought to myself if they sell for 300.00 people are going to buy the 200.00 gc instead unless they are really in to xbox, like us.

It would be excellent if ms sold the XBOX for 200.00 cause then they could completely destroy ****staionpoo and gaycube.

notice how PS2 isnt really talked about also have you seen the stupid freakin ads on tv the blue icecream sweet jesus

I seriously doubt they'll drop the price. At $300 they are already losing $100 per machine. And console manufacturers rarely change prices after they've made them official.

broom, please dont reply to everythread multiple times for no reason, ive told you before about this.

U know the price drop is not totally out of the question. It would not be good business for MS and Sony to sit and wait as Game Cube flies off the shelves for $100 bones less. Matter of fact, we've seen this in the past with Sony and Saturn. If I remember correctly Sony drop their price and Sega had no choice, but to match it to remain competitive. Anyway, in the end this can only benefit us the consumer.

Still waiting for that freaking reserve date!

I seriously doubt that the X-Box will sell $200.00. I wish it would happen though. PEACE

Well, Microsoft is going to lose $190 dollars every Xbox sold. Even they won't bring that up to $290. You know how they love money...

08-02-2001, 01:14 PM
If they lowered the price a bit then yeah they would lose alot of money but won't they get that back through xboxgamers on th internet and such.

08-02-2001, 10:40 PM
heh, too bad that wouldnt work

08-03-2001, 11:05 AM
That would be really cool if the xbox could be $200.00.;)

Percuvius do you really hate the XBox that much that you would buy it just to F it up?

08-03-2001, 12:25 PM
It's strange that Percuvius would waste time on an Xbox site when he hates Xbox. How much free time do u have? Anyway, I'm 99.9% sure Xbox's price won't change. As others already said, Xbox is already losing $100.00 per console. They are counting on people who buy Xbox to buy at least 5 games. If they made Xbox at $200.00, they would be losing $200.00 per system. That won't happen!:(

08-03-2001, 12:57 PM
i like how you all say them losing 100 per system is such a bad thing. All consoles are sold at a loss. Its how the business works. The money is made with the software and other first party items

08-03-2001, 01:42 PM
I would be VERY happy if microsoft sold the XBOX for 200 the I could buy even more games Oh Funionz I like the avatar u got shiny.

08-03-2001, 02:41 PM
Yes, shiny things distract mindless GC fanboys. :D

01-22-2005, 10:32 PM
hey even if they are selling xboxs by 200.00 dollares they are still selling so stop complinting
