It seems that this piece is all conjecture, but The Inquirer is proposing that, thanks to Sony talking all big about the PS3 and how amazingly expensive it will be, Microsoft now has leeway to price the XBox360 a good $200 or $300 higher than expected. Now that I read this, it seems as if Sony is maybe blowing smoke and the PS3 will actually be free so when the XBox360 comes out at $7 million people will be lining up at the Willy Wonka-like Sony factory and getting their magical golden consoles.
