Try closer to $440. It's 300 pounds (the same price that the PS2 launched at in the UK). The PS2 is down to 200 pounds already, and the GameCube is expected to launch at 200 ukp too (though that hasn't been formally announced yet).
Will make the XBox that little harder to sell...

You can say that again. Since the price drop, PS2s are once again flying off the shelves here. I don't feel the need to get one myself yet, but regardless... Nintendo's beauty at £200 should sell extremely well providing Nintendo really promote the thing and have enough in store demos running from say, Jan 02 onward to release.

From what I know, Microsoft aren't expecting a 'huge' launch like the PS2 one. They just want it out there selling at a steady rate in the run-up to Autumn, which is when they'll really start blitzing the marketplace.
