Surprises in store for the XBOX 360

Microsoft's Richard Teversham talked a lot without saying much in regards to anything important about the XBOX 360. Teversham continued to beat the corporate drum that the PlayStation 3 is priced too high and that the company is taking its fan base for a ride. That being said, he still feels that the Sony faithful will snap up the consoles as fast as possible -- at least in Europe. “Sony has got great loyalty and they are going to seriously use that loyalty to ensure that they sell a console. On day one they will have pre-sold most of what they’ve got. But the question is, will they actually be able to launch in Europe and if they do, what are the tiny quantities going to be in Europe," said Teversham to MCV.

Teversham went to say that the Wii is little more than a Gamecube with a DVD drive and the company likely wouldn’t have enough supply to meet demand. He also reiterated that Microsoft would not be dropping the price of its XBOX 360 before year's end. This should put a stop to some of the rumors that have been flying around recently. Instead, he threw the ball back in Sony's court, "The question is: When are they going to drop the price? I think a lot of gamers out there are going to be saying ‘I’ll wait for the price to drop,’ or even better they’ll buy a 360."

Teversham also promised a few surprises for its console in Q4, but failed to at least drop a hint as to what could possibly be in store. As far as we know, he could be talking about the already announced external HD DVD drive or some top secret, developed in a locked basement “killer game” that no one was expecting.
