  1. This would be great news, if you couldn’t get it at that price already. it at this price already, if they were to be dropping it to £160 then great, but it really isn’t new news if you just shop around.

  2. Yes, it’s clear that there’s competition in the market for consoles – happily for the potential purchaser.

    Not been watching the price movements at Play, but isn’t it possible that they’re dropped the prices in anticipation?

    Also worth noting that the prices are retail estimates put out by Microsoft, so street prices could well turn out lower.
