While it’s not quite the smoking deal from early last month (a deal which in hindsight was a price mistake), Best Buy is currently trimming $100 from all models of the Motorola Moto 360. The attractive Moto 360 is by far the best-selling Android Wear smartwatch on the market and recently received an update that adds Wi-Fi capabilities, among other things. The $100 discount means that the stainless steel/leather band, stainless steel/stainless steel band, and gold/gold band Moto 360 smartwatches can be had for $149.99, $199.99, and $229.99, respectively. We should also note that Amazon has also... Read more...
Sony's New Year's resolution must have been to sell a more affordable tablet, as evidenced by the Tablet S receiving a much needed price cut. The 9.4-inch tablet now sells for $400 on Sony's website for the 16GB model, and $500 for the 32GB version, down from $500 and $600 respectively (though both were recently selling for $50 off MSRP). The $100 price cut isn't exactly shocking. Sony, like everyone else, is suddenly faced with the reality that there are at least two low priced and capable tablets on the market, one of which belongs to Amazon (Kindle Fire, $199) and the other to Barnes & Noble...

Proving that patience is a virtue, Nintendo today confirmed earlier rumors of a Wii price cut by slashing the price of its flagship console to $150, but it doesn't stop there. Available in either black or white, the lower priced Wii is part of a new bundle that also includes the Mario Kart game and a matching colored Wii Wheel, replacing the previously included Wii Sports and Wii Sports Resorts games. "From the day it launched, Wii has let players of all ages and experience levels have fun with one another," said Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime. "The new suggested retail pricing...

The rumor mill is buzzing with chatter about Nintendo's Wii console and whether a second generation device is on the horizon. It all started last month when Nintendo America President, Reggie Fils-Aime, made it pretty clear that the successor to the Wii would not adopt 3D, leading some to wonder if Nintendo was working on a new console. Things heated up recently when word broke that Nintendo was prepping a $50 price cut for the Wii next month, bringing the cost of ownership down from $199 to $149. Maybe Nintendo was mulling a price cut in order to regain an advantage over the HDD-less 4GB Xbox... Read more...
Good news for text messaging teens enamored with Microsoft's Kin phones. Verizon has gone and slashed the prices on both the Kin One and Kin Two, making it easier for social networking addicts to save some of their allowance for the real important things, like Justin Bieber concert tickets. As it turns out, Verizon has had trouble moving the Kin phones off of store shelves, perhaps because everyone has been paying attention to that other smartphone that was recently launched (a little thing called the iPhone 4). Or maybe tweens and social networking hipsters aren't the best demographics for a smartphone.... Read more...

The word on the streets of Taipei is that Intel is planning what could very well be the pre-Nehalem price cuts on existing and upcoming Core 2-based products.  The current plan is to reduce prices in the third quarter and add a few more CPUs just to firm-up the low and mid-range.  This could very well be a sign that we can expect a very strong launch from Nehalem, but we’ll continue to keep our fingers crossed just in case. “The Core 2 Quad 9450, currently priced at US$316, will be phased out of the market to be replaced by the Core 2 Quad 9400 at 2.66GHz and a price of US$266.  The...

July 22 has come and gone and just as anticipated, the Intel price cut is finally here. Unless you've been on vacation in the African plains for the last couple months, living the disconnected life with the local tribes and learning their ways, you've probably heard about this widely reported price cut. The price cuts effect Intel's quad core processors, dropping their price by as much as 50%. The cheapest quad-core Intel has to offer, the Q6600, went down in price from $530 to $266.Intel is also positioning the new Q6700 in the Q6600's former price point at $530. The Q6700 is an un-Extreme version... Read more...
The price cuts we told you about yesterday are now official.  Sorry, no Barcelona pricing just yet.  We'll keep an eye out though, as we'd expect that information to be released at about the same time the first CPUs from that family get ready to ship.  Here's just a few of prices, representing the fastest CPUs AMD has to offer in some of the most popular segments: TL-66 (mobile CPU) now $354 6000+ now $178 FX-74 (pair) now $599 X2 BE-2350 (energy efficient model) now $91 Sempron 3800+ now just $53...

In an interview with Sony’s CEO, Sir Howard Stringer, that was published today revealed that price cuts to the PS3 are certain, but the extent of the price cuts are not yet known. Stringer declares that the company is trying to maximize the price cut’s effect, which probably means that analysts are busy at work right now. “Although Stringer declined to provide a target range for the cuts, researchers expect that Sony may trim the price by as much as $100 before the holiday season, hoping to spur a fresh wave of sales. A combination of a cut and ‘break-out’ games would revitalize the console,... Read more...
AMD's price cuts over the last few months, a response to Intel's release of the Core 2 line of CPUs last year, may finally be pressuring Intel to make some price cuts of its own. So what does this mean for you? If you're in the market for a new AMD or Intel CPU, expect to continue to see prices drop on both sides.   Price competition is sparking up again between the world's largest chip makers, Intel Corp. (Nasdaq: INTC) and Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE: AMD). As Intel took a technological lead late last year, AMD responded... Read more...
