Probably, but not necessarily.  X1 has had price drops and free bundles for the last 3-4mos and it hasn't really helped.  Unless this time it actually works, I wouldn't expect Sony to match this unless they actually feel they have to.

Most people haven't picked up a next gen system yet. The real challenge is to get people to drop their old systems and switch. The US numbers are a lot closer than I thought

This is true. Until games aren't released for the old consoles, I don't think you'll see a mass migration. A $350 price tag might help the trickle become a small stream during the holiday season tho.

Yes, and we don't allow racism on the forum.  Go sit in a corner until you learn to be kind to your fellow human beings and consoles, no matter what color they were manufactured in.

A redesign and another cut of $250 and it might start to appeal.

I was hoping for more like $300.  Maybe the cut plus a Black Friday sale of some merit will do the trick.

Honestly, I don't think Sony can take the hit that a price cut would create. They are all but hemorrhaging money, and with console cost to manufacture being as tight as they are and with the current lead they have in the "console war", they wouldn't benefit from the financial risk.
I swear to god I will bring forth a rage so complete in it's fury that your innards would boil from the sheer amount of energy pouring from your monitor.

They've actually been making a profit on the console for a while.  With a year of manufacturing under their belt, they could have lowered margins ever so slightly as well.

I'm not saying that they match just to match, but if the price cut is actually successful for MS and sales of PS4's slow down as a result, they would most likely match it.  PS is one of the few profitable entities that Sony has.  They need thiose sales to come pouring in, and some of their sales have been at the expense of the X1's sales.  So...
