1. Not a bad thing.
2. Good on them, they know it isn't worth 500.
3. Still don't want one :D


1. is a bad thing, a price drop (or sale) this early on only shakes consumer confidence, anyone on the fence will wait 4 more months for another price drop.

The kinect is the only thing apart exclusives that separate the two consoles that's even notable, oh and the ps4s overall power advantage.


Yea it just isn't something that interests me. I own both consoles because I want to be able to play the exclusives from both sides. Both are amazing consoles and both will only get better in time.

Hmmm... with a price drop so early, won't people just say "Hey if they drop it this soon, why can't I just wait a little longer for them to drop it again?"

I mean another 4 months isn't all that bad, and in September a bunch of new PS/360 games will be out.

is this the fastest price drop in console history?


It's not a price drop. It's a discount. I know GameFAQs users have a hard time distinguishing between the two - I frequent the Wii U and Vita boards - but you can't change the facts.

Of course, it's entirely possible - likely, even - that the Xbox One will receive a price drop soon. If that occurs before May, then it sets the record for fastest price drop.

Which brings up your actual question. When the Wii U had its own price drop, similar topics were made on that board (calling it "unprecedented", etc.), so I did some research and managed to find when the price drops actually occurred:

Enigma149 posted a very long time ago...
N64 - 6 months ($50)
GCN - 6 months ($100)
Xbox - 6 months ($100)
PS1 - 8 months ($100)
PS3 - 8 months ($100)
Xbox 360 - 9 months ($20 or $50, depending upon model)
Wii U - 10 months ($50)
Dreamcast - 11 months ($50)
Saturn - 12 months ($200)
PS2 - 19 months ($100)
Wii - 34 months ($100)

[...]

I'm also going to apologize for saying last week the PS3's price cut was, at the time, unprecedented, and that the only price cut to happen faster was the 3DS's. The 3DS's actually took place slightly later in the system's lifespan, and the PS3's price cut is, clearly, not unprecedented.


Looking at the chart, if the Xbox One gets an official price cut during May, it will tie with the N64, Gamecube, and Xbox for fastest price drop. If it happens in April (or March), it will beat it.

I should point out that the 3DS's price drop relative to its release in the US was announced sooner than any other price drop in console history, at 123 days into the system's life (relative to its Japanese release, however, it happened much later). By sheer cosmic coincidence, this is the exact same duration as the Xbox One's release to today.

I don't see how a $50 price drop shows desperation. Maybe if the price drop was $100.


Haha really? So baby stepping their way to it is ok though.
If you factor in the free game it's more then 100$ btw.


Exactly. Now its 399 on amazon, smfh.

Did I say baby sepping their way to it would be desperation? No.

I hate motion gaming most of all. And that goes for any motion gaming. Lol. But I appreciate it and the things that it can offer or could offer to some games. But I have thought about hooking it up just to try out the voice stuff.

I use it for mocap and lipsync animation (still using 2 Kinect ones for this right now). It works really well :O

That's pretty cool. Also off topic but I love having conversations with people that don't just fly off the handle and call you a blind fanboy.

Aw man, it's all good just be wary that the kinect takes a while to get used to you and your voice but then it works perfectly, but it does take a while so it may not be for you.
