What if... what if the price drop was planned all along?

Granted, they lost against Sony in sold consoles... but let's be real here: PS4 was going to outsell MS no matter what. Sony was going to do whatever it took to ensure that.

So the 500 dollar price tag was kept there just to squeeze extra money out of the consumers and they kept that price there for as long as they possibly could then after releasing one of their biggest games, they drop the system down to 400 and 450 at retailers around the globe. Perhaps this was their plan all along.

Now, the timed price drop seems a bit more appealing to some and MS pushes forward now with a very desirable dudebro game as well as a cheaper system. Seems like a no-brainer plan to me.

a price drop in 4 months will shake consumers confidence in the xbone. They will wait it out another 4 months to see if it keeps dropping $50. This isn't a good thing to drop the price this early on. It usually takes a year or two at the least. This is actually a bad thing for people who are not big xbox fans.

The Super Nintendo did. That's the only reason I was able to get one when I was younger.
