If you’re considering buying an Xbox 360 or PS3 in the future, you could be in luck.
Ubisoft CEO, Yves Guillemot, predicts that both Microsoft and Sony will slash their console prices before the year ends. Nintendo dropped the price of their Wii console a month ago, and Guillemot believes this may force Sony and Microsoft to follow.
Of course it wouldn’t be much of a surprise if Guillemot’s prediction is spot on. Both companies last cut their console prices around two years ago, and production costs will have dropped since then.
With Nintendo’s next console due to release sometime next year, the two giants will want consumers to purchase their consoles before more begin to consider buying a Wii U instead. A drop in price should be enough to increase sales numbers significantly.
Perhaps announcements at Gamescom or Tokyo Game Show are in the pipeline, in time for the holiday season.
