CNN has a bit on how the console war
is heating up. Price cuts and the ability to go online are some of the attractions.
U.S.-based Microsoft and Japan's Sony announced on Wednesday fresh price
cuts for their video games consoles in Europe, adding fuel to an already contentious
battle for market share.
Within an hour of each other, first Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE),
a unit of Sony Corp, and then Microsoft said they would cut the suggested retail
price of their consoles to around 249 euros ($244.80), from 299 euros.
