    Has Nintendo fixed their supply issues yet though? I honestly wouldn't expect numbers higher than last year if they haven't yet... and the 360 performed very well against the Wii with a much higher price last Xmas IIRC

    I've not meant numbers, but market segments. Even if it's just $199, the Arcade still lacks the games that sell the Wii, not to mention the controller. They've already failed to capture that market and as it seems nothing can stop the Wii to reach 60-80, or even 100 million units.

    Supposedly by year end they will; analysts are predicting that Wii may break 1m in a single month if there's the hardware.

    I think that's really reasonable. If they can sell around 500K in slow months, I think November or December sales topping 1 million is pretty reasonable, as long as they have the units available.

    I wouldn't be surprised if all three consoles top 1m in either November or December.

    That's right. Maybe I'm misremembering; maybe they meant breaking 1 mil once they have enough stock.

    Arcade should be very tempting to anyone who is considering to buy a PS2 this xmas.

    Considering the PS2 is still an outlandish $129? I'd say so.

    Best Nov for a console is ~1.3 million for Dec that # jumps to ~2.7 million. Both were accomplished by the PS2 in the same year.

    Given Wii's monthly numbers, ~3.5 million should be very feasible unless production isn't there which would seem problematic since the Wii is going into its third Christmas season.

    Price coming in UK (thus Europe)
    http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=235793
    In euros:
    arcade: 165 euros
    pro: 215 euros
    elite: 290 euros.
    Might be tough for me to pass this fall... if true obviously.

    Woolworths in the UK sell consoles? Over here it's a supermarket chain.

    In the U.S. it was a convenience/drug store.

    It sells ~everything here. Kinda like a mini supermarket without the food.

    Hmm, gamer.tm have been busy bees, they also posted this:

    http://www.gamer.tm/news.php?id=2995

    Claiming that new Bungie and Rare games will be unveiled at this event. It sort of dovetails with the 360 relaunch speculation, in some ways.

    We shall see. Never heard of that site before...

    If the rumors are true, MS would surprise me - they haven't done much for the 360s success lately. The price cut was almost too late, but with a couple more interesting exclusive games it could go a long way.

    Yeah, but why a secret? Is every member of the press under NDA? Like someone on GAF said:
