Xbone price drop?

#1SkilzMCPosted 10/22/2013 7:30:52 PM
My friend told me the Xbone just dropped down to a $400 price tag? I couldn't believe it, was he talking out his ass?

Yes. Now go pay the $500 it cost, you get what you pay for. Just like the BC PS3 being $600 and all the whiners wanting a cheaper console so what does Sony do? They take things out to reduce the price! And then MORE whiners complain about no BC.

Again you get what you pay for.

Yup, if I bought an Xbone but I would paying for the Kinect I don't want, you are correct.

Well that's too bad, that would have put Microsoft on a nearly even playing field with Sony if it had been true.

That's your opinion obviously. Others find Kinect as a worthy $100 add on and is the reason they will be getting the X1

Yes that is my opinion, obviously, so obviously I didn't feel the need to preface it with "in my opinion." But thanks for the enlightening comment brah!

Not sure why you need to be a smartass about it. I was just saying because opinions are quite unclear on these boards.

You can actually get trolled for saying MS will be on a level playing field if they drop the price to $399, by the same people who will say "Even if X1 is $399 PS4 will destroy X1" and vice versa

Well sorry for the people who sold their PS2. Mine is still alive and kicking along with my PS3 second model and I'll never let my PS2 go. I'm still gonna keep my older consoles after I buy a PS4 in the next 3-4 years. See backwards compatibility is a nice feature and all but what if that console version dies off? A couple of my friends had their phat PS3 died off eventually and since they sold their PS2 then they can't play PS2 games anymore. Tough luck. I'd rather have the console developers do away with backwards compatibility in favor of making their newest console cheaper since I'm gonna keep my old console anyway.

There will probably be a massive price drop before Christmas of next year. The hardcore will buy it at launch, but $500 is far too much for the general audience. If $500 is too much for you then wait a year.

Tough luck. Thats what their offering. Could always just sell Kinect on Ebay.

Dropped down or bowed down to a $400 price tag (PS4)?
