The 2008 E3 gaming conference is being held next week and as usual it’s a war of the flacks from the game publishers and game console vendors including Microsoft. One item increasing the Microsoft buzz is an all but certain price cut on the Xbox 360 Pro version:
A GameStop employee has sent us cell pics of the internal announcement for the coming Xbox 360 Pro price drop announcement. They also included pics of the shelf art all of which will go on display on July 13, the day before E3 kicks off with Microsoft’s press conference.
Of course theories abound as to what it all means including possible new Xbox versions, but I am sure Microsoft’s cooling Xbox sales had more than a little to do with it.
