Xbox price drop...
The Microsoft Xbox is flopping everywhere but in the States so they are going to drop the price by £100 to £199 to try and pick up sales. Needless to say I am going to complain strongly to both HMV and Microsoft immediately and try and get £100 back from them as I paid the full £299 just a few weeks ago.

Nintendo did the same thing with the Nintendo64 - dropping the price from £250 to £150 shortly after launch and gave refunds to anyone who complained.

UPDATE: Microsoft are going to give us two free games and a free controller by way of compensation. Or to put it in Microsoft speak: "As a big "THANK YOU" to everyone who bought an Xbox before 26th April we are offering, until July 1st 2002, the chance for you to get 2 games and an Xbox Controller for FREE!"
