MS cannot release a more powerful Xbox One. People are stuck with an inferior product for the generation.

Maybe MS will launch the Xbox Two in 2016.


An inferior Xbox One isn't really that bad.
If only it didn't cost more at the same time.

Agree. 349 is more a worthy price for xbone.

Msoft could have given its consumers a console as good as the PS4 for $400 or better than the PS4 for $500, but chose to bundle Kinect to a console unarguably anemic as compared to the PS4 for $100 more.

Microsoft's first mistake was designing a console around the idea of cashing in on their user base's eye movements instead of playing games well as if the former would mean anything without the latter.

Hey Xbox game unit, for future reference, don't do that.

i think they rather slow down the production than dig the ET copy up and then few month later put it down again with huge pile of bone

Considering how inferior xbone to ps4, amd how it pay walled everything,I think 250-300 is the best price for the xbone.

MS needs to do something to increase the demand. The demand just isn't very big right now.

Microsoft have made amazing moves this gen, but this is the first mistake I sadly have to admit that they have made. Why would they want to slow down production? When the next PS4 sales report is in it will look BAD if they don't have millions of shipped sales.

Imagine when the PS4 hits 10 million in a few months and MS says "Well we are 6 million shipped now, yeah we slowed down production and are still clearing the Day One Editions off the shelves"


HOW DO YOU THINK INVESTORS WILL REACT?

If anything they should RAISE production, f***ing flood even convenience stores with Xbox Ones whether they sell or not. That way when Sony says "We have sold 10 million PS4s to consumers", MS will say "Well we have the money to ship 14 million Xbox Ones this year, and we did!"


Well out of the 5 million units shipped Xbox One has sold 4.2 million. 200,000 Units since they started the sales and bundles for titanfall and forza. I'm sure 800,000 units will last plenty on shelves. Just a big mess. They need better PR. Every other thing they come out saying digs them a deeper hole. Just announce a $100 price drop sell remaining units and work on a slim model that at least matches the ps4s power and capabilities. Id be more worried at this point about the consumers jumping ship. About 30 of my friends on ps4 now were on the 360 last gen. Microsoft done goofed.


They cant make a more powerful xbox one, because if they did everyone who has one of the consoles now wouldnt be on equal footing as the people with the new consoles

$50 less than launch PS4 price is still good for me. I would buy it to complete my console setup for the rest of the gen.


But NOPE... MS so stubborn. Could E3 have a kinect-free box announcement?
