(RUMOR) - A whole host of changes, and a price drop?

Anybody understand Spanish? According to a number of sources, and the rather dodgy Google translator, this Spanish forum claims that they have it on good knowledge (a Microsoft employee) that Microsoft will be implementing a number of interesting changes to the Xbox 360 and its pricing. The information is very interesting, but should be taken with a pinch of salt. # Xbox 360 Premium Pack price is going to drop $100 in October. #Xbox 360 Core Pack price is going to drop $80 in October. This is a big price drop, but it's feasible, I think I paid £300 for my original Xbox, and then, a few months later, they were retailing at £220. #Gears of War is going to be released the last week of October with an huge marketing campaign at global scale. #HD-DVD add-on for September, you can connect to the USB 2.0 port. It is going to be priced at $100 #New Hard Drive with 100GB of storage, price and date not specified. #Webcam "My Eye on you", for the month of September with a price of $50 without game and $75 with a game. #Xbox Backward compatibility list is going to be updated in June with 50 new titles #Extension of the bandwidth for the Xbox live servers. #At E3 we are going to see the first videos of Halo 3, which will be released in March 2007. #Possibility of an "urban game" that could be GTA. Microsoft is working on it and this isn´t a joke. #A possible price drop in Xbox Live Gold or it is going to be free because they are going to get money with promotional advices. #From the next month of October they will change some records in some games for "MSpoints". #Paramount Pictures and Microsoft have announced an agreement where Paramount is going to provide HD content to Xbox Live. #NBC has signed with Microsoft for the possibility of watching online tournaments live. #Alliance between Epic and Microsoft for exclusive content in Xbox Live. #Creation of a Dashboard for kids. #A new service in June: Download and play. #Rare was working on Kameo 2 before the release of Kameo.Will it arrive sooner than expected?. #MS is working on an upgraded friend list ( 200 contacts) #Virtual Console with Sega games before the next month of October #A spectacular upgrade in the number of Xbox Live Arcade games in the next months. #New look for Dashboard. Most of these idea have been banded about at one point or another, but we'll never know the truth until Microsoft tell us, they never speculate on rumour.
