It is a rumor that pops up and then gets squashed, then it raises again stronger than before. Again news of an upcoming price drop for the 360 has hit the internet. From the most recent article: "Citing unnamed Taiwan-based OEM component manufacturers, the report claimed that Microsoft has negotiated lower production costs for the Xbox 360 with manufacturing partners in Taiwan in order to drop the price of its premium Xbox 360 package by $100 to $299. The report noted that its sources estimate the total production cost savings for Microsoft to be between 15 and 20 percent." If Jason Dobson of Gamasutra is right, then this is good news for all those who haven't had a chance to purchase the 360 yet.
