Microsoft’s Xbox Division Head Phil Spencer thinks so, since Sony did that before. He continued to say that Microsoft has a good feeling on what’s coming next for the Xbox One in the holiday season.
“I fully expect they [PlayStation] will drop price. When I think about the playbook they’ve used in the past, we feel good about the plans we have in place going forward in the holiday. If history tells, then we’ll see a price drop from them coming.”
Spencer believes this price competition helps drive both consoles’ sales forward.
“It’s great for gamers when price competition happens. We saw that last holiday, and we saw crazy sales numbers on all of the consoles.”
Sony will be present at Paris Games Week in October, so it’s possible that we will see the announcement there.
