The widely speculated Xbox 360 price cut will not go ahead, just as I predicted a Microsoft spokesman admitted last week, but they will be stressing the machines incredible price advantage over the PS3. With the top of the range Xbox 360 costing £270 from Dabs.com, and the PS3 costing twice as much for the lower-end model, which doesn't even support HDMI, Microsoft are confident that even without a pricecut, they can win the console war. Microsoft did however announce that they would be releasing a number of 'unexpected surprises in Q4 this year'. I'm personally very excited about this. This is most likely to include the External HD-DVD drive, the Wireless Gaming Headset, more arcade games, the Xbox Live Vision Camera and the possible introduction of certain extended parts of Xbox Live Gold becoming avaialbe to Silver members along with a drop in subscription price for Gold.
