X360 Price cut in Europe

This article was taken from Gamespot.com

"Let the price wars commence--Microsoft has thrown down the gauntlet and cut the price of all Xbox 360 SKUs in Europe.

The Arcade pack will have a recommended retail price of £159.99 (down from £199.99), the Premium pack will be £199.99 (down from £259.99), and the Elite £259.99 (down from £299.99).

The price drops are effective from this Friday, March 14, and notably the new recommended retail price for the Arcade brings it in cheaper than the Wii--which at £179.99 has been the most budget-conscious next-gen console option since its launch in December 2006.

Microsoft's Interactive Entertainment Business Europe's VP, Chris Lewis, commented, "History shows that £159.99 is the price point where a console’s audience begins to expand, and with these new ERPs in place we’re ready to bring more consumers into the Xbox 360 world." "

I think that this is really good news for those in Europe thinking about purchasing a 360. I'm not saying this is good because of the Arcade pack, but because of the premium pack. With the HDD version now only £199.99 (Down £60!) people can get a fully functioning 360 for only £20 more than a Wii. You can't beat that deal and it makes me wonder if the states will see a price drop here as well. Maybe a drop to $300 for the Premium to coincide with the launch of GTAIV!? Who knows, but I think that would be a really good idea.

If the States do get a cut here our my price predictions...

X360 Arcade: $229.99
X360 Premium: $299.99
X360 Elite: $379.99

I know I have very optimistic thought about the Elite's price, but I think that would be the best price for it...

Jumper: Griffon's Story (360) Review

Behold...the greatest game you'll ever play! /sarcasm

Where do I begin? I guess I can start off by firmly saying that Jumper: Griffin's Story is the worst X360 game I have ever played. I’ll get some quick points out of the way first. There’s not much to the audio in this game. There’s simple music, lackluster sound effects and while Jamie Bell does lend his voice for the game, he wasn’t given much to do. What I’m basically saying is that the audio is the best part of the game. Can you see where this review is heading already? The controls are junk and camera is terrible. I will say that the only real decent part of this game is the fighting system. Each face button corresponds to a different direction, but they never really make any use of it besides the basic attacks.
