"Oh look, Sony have also reduced the price of their console to $300"
I think it's more likely pigs will start flying than the XBO getting a price cut in it's first year in all seriousness. --- "Exactly correct TC..." http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/691088-xbox-one/66274628
I think it's more likely pigs will start flying than the XBO getting a price cut in it's first year in all seriousness.
Price cuts in a console's first year are extremely common. It happened to the PSone, Saturn, N64, Dreamcast, GameCube, Xbox, PS3, Wii U, and several others. Only consoles that were very successful right from launch - such as the PS2, Xbox 360, Wii - managed to go for more than a year without a price cut.
I think that a price cut for the Xbox One in its first year is very likely, unless it is extremely successful (which I think isn't very likely).
