Console Price Drop?

According to a conversation that a former staffer had with a GameStop manager, an official price drop will be in effect very soon. The manager even claims to have the promotional materials that show a price drop of $50 off each of the big three. That would mean you could get an Xbox or PlayStation 2 for $149.99 or a GameCube for $99.99! Here is the excerpt from the ConsoleGold forums:

"Yeah we've known that it was probably going to happen for quite a while but when I was at Gamestop yesterday, the manager showed me the promotional materials that they've received for the price drop - $50 off each of the big three. I think he mentioned that it would kick in this coming weekend-ish."

While I certainly wouldn't take this as fact just yet, I will certainly say that it's highly possible. Companies sometimes like to make big announcements right before E3 to get a jump on competitors. If this does turn out to be true, wow! To think that you could get all three consoles for $400 is amazing!

I'd like to see that here. Would definitely spur me on to getting another console. :D

Heh, maybe, just maybe, Microsoft could convince me to buy their Xbox with such a price drop but...they gotta show me a hojillion games that I'd want like Sony and Nintendo have with their consoles.

Nintendo couldn't give me a Gamecube. They would have to pay me for me to take it.
I am waiting for PS3 myself. But after that is released, I am going to wait for the prices to drop again. Unless they drop the PS2's price again, then I might buy that.

I might even buy the GC before I buy the GBA SP!
