People didn't buy PS3 on launch because of the outrages $599 price


Enough did and it kept them afloat just enough to revise themselves...

people didn't buy Street Fighter x Tekken because of the outrages 12(!) ON DISC dlc characters


Unfortunately enough did despite the whole mess of controversy around it.

Seems only sure-fire thing that the generic gamer consumer will NOT take is a total market flood of a product (Guitar Hero, Rock Band...).

Rev3 also did an interview..and while he didn't say full price in those exact words..he did say that you would have to pay for the game..which sounds a lot like full price to me. No this in not made up, so say goodbye to letting people borrow your games, to renting games, and to purchasing games pre-owned..at least on the Xbox One..

It won't. Hardcore gamers buy launch consoles.
