13:47 EDTGME, MSFT, EA, ATVI, TTWO, SNE, NTDOYGameStop climbs after Microsoft announces cheaper Xbox
Shares of video game retailer GameStop (GME) are climbing after Microsoft (MSFT) announced that it will offer a cheaper version of its Xbox One video game console. GameStop and video game makers should benefit from the launch of the lower priced Xbox, research firm Robert W. Baird stated. WHAT'S NEW: Earlier today on its corporate blog, Microsoft announced that the company will offer a new version of Xbox One for as little as $399 beginning on June 9. Xbox One is now only available for $499. The cheaper version of the game console will not include Kinect, the company's motion and voice sensing system, Microsoft stated. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors earlier, Baird analyst Colin Sebastian predicted that video game sales would rise as a result of Microsoft's decision. Historically, price cuts on video game consoles have caused sales of both the consoles and video games to rise significantly, the analyst reported. GameStop should get a boost from this trend, while sales of Electronic Arts' (EA) Titanfall game could also get a lift from Microsoft's move, Sebastian believes. He kept a $50 price target and Outperform rating on GameStop. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, GameStop rose 2.25% to $37.65, Microsoft advanced 1.7% to $40.35, and Electronic Arts added 0.3% to $35.40. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other publicly traded video game makers include Activision Blizzard (ATVI) and Take-Two (TTWO). Sony (SNE) and Nintendo (NTDOY) offer console gaming systems that compete with Microsoft's Xbox One and Xbox 360.
