Why are people so mad about the $100 price difference?

The $100 price difference is NOT the main concern. The main concerns include the Kinect and Microsoft reversing policies a lot since reveal and E3.

Webmaster what would a system like that cost in 2005, like the one you listed?


I was bored. I have no idea.


Using the wayback machine.

GeForce 7800 GTX ~249.99

Radeon X1800 ~249.99 - ~399.99

So the card costs about the same as the entire Xbox 360.

But you're still talking about upgrades and ignoring the money already speant. I mean I get it, but lets pretend that it's 2 years from now. Now you're buying another video card, and if you look back again at what you spent vs what somebody buying a console spent, console is still much cheaper.

Things like Steam sales are a great argument for PC gamers vs console gamers, and the fact that games will run great constantly if you keep up with hardware, but that all takes money.

Personally, I love it. Not because avanent's dumb "oh Americans just spend not think durrr" but because I like nice things. I love the PC gaming, but I also appreciate consoles.


again, they already have a PC which crushes xbox1. if you want to talk about total lifetime cost you'd have to include the TV cost, which factoring in the cable bill and electricity cost over 8 years it's like $200:$2000 PC:xbox1 that you're spending.

They already have a PC that costs how much? You still need the TV (monitor) and cable and electricity for the computer.

I understand what you're saying... if you came into it at one particular time, the costs may look cheaper. But when you step back and look at a much larger picture, PC gaming costs more, every single day,. Seriously, if you're going to argue this, the game costs is what you should be arguing.

I hate to bring age into this, but when you've been gaming since forever, and you've bought PCs for much of that time too and attempted to game on them, the cost of PC gaming is blatantly higher.


ok, further revision, if you're going to include the cost of online ($400 for xbox over 8 years) and the cost of a PC it would be $1560:$2760 PC:xbox1.

I can pay $400 for one system or $500 for the other. I'll pay $400 and use the money to buy a game. I don't care about the Kinect.

You're living in a dream world where if you game on PC, you don't need the same things (TV, electricity) as you do with a console.

Xbox live, sure.

$400 over 8 years + $400 for the console.

Not sure where you're getting $2760 from.

But that said, I've had much more fun on XBL and XBL is much more social than my PC gaming has been. This may varry from user to user, but I'm sure most people have actual vocal friends on XBL more then those that use voice on Steam. Steam is great, but for social gaming the Xbox has been paramount for me, and worth that extra money.

Again, for me it's about having the best of the best, not about saving money. And even with that in mind, the consoles are all up in there.

Pinoy441 what is your little info-graphic supposed to show? That Sony ponies list a bunch of games that nobody buys and they like to make little pictures like that?

Why doesn't that include downloaded games? Do games that were downloaded not exist in your little world?

Why does that only show games from 2010 to 2013? Why don't they show year by year going back to 2005?

This coming from previous 360 owners who didn't buy a ps3 because of the price am I right?

I'm not mad about the price, it just makes the decision on which to buy easier. Sure I could afford the xone but it doesn't seem as good, I hate Microsoft for the crap they tried to pull, and well Kinect does not interest me at all.

While the tech seems nice I see it adding very little to my gaming experience.

Since the MS U-turn , haters have to find new and exciting ways to dis dis the XB1. The increased price over the PS4 being one of them.
