During an interview with TheStreet.com, Corporate Vice President J Allard, who heads Microsoft's video-game efforts, said that the Xbox 360 console will retail for around the same price that the first Xbox console did, about $300. This is an extract from the full interview...
Q: How much is the Xbox 360 going to cost?
Not sure. It's probably about two months away before we make the decision on that.
Q: The last Xbox went out at about $300 initially. Will the 360 be priced higher, lower?
It's going to be in the neighbourhood.
There has been much speculation recently as to the price of the next generation consoles. At least now we have an indication of the possible price of the Xbox 360.
