    In response to Microsoft's drastic cuts, Nintendo announced that they will launch the Gamecube at 199 Euros (down from 249 Euros). This works out to 177 USD.

    Consumers win.

    UPDATE: Reduced the Aussie launch price to $329 AUD. That's around $178 USD.

    Daily Radar reckon it will launch at £129 here in the UK...consumers win, will MS lose?

    I never thought i'd say this but at these prices i could well end up owning all 3!!!

    You're right they aint gonna like it...
    It's a great time to be a gamer though [​IMG] Now if only they would reduce the price of the software! I'll be grabbing an XBox next week but at £40 a shot other than Halo there are no other games i'm willing to buy.

    What are you kidding? The US market is all that's keeping the X-Box afloat, and that's changing. Supposedly sales have sunk it to #3

    I'm sure all 3 will be announcing price cuts at E3
