I feel like $500 is just too much money for a game console

$600 was more expensive for less.


No... PS3 gave you far, far more. Cheapest Blu-ray player on the market, next-gen console, built-in PS2 hardware, 4 USB ports, Gigabit Ethernet, SD Card ports, memory stick duo ports, Wi-Fi, etc in 2006.

and there was a $500 model without Wi-Fi and with a 360-size 20 GB HDD.

You can build a

4th gen i5 cpu
$200 video card
1 gig hdd
8 gig ram

PC for $700 or under. Not counting a monitor.

Its a complete rip off.

Not saying that you should go PC. But $500 for weak hardware is a joke.

I would pay $400 for XB1 with Kinect.

I would pay $700 for a console that can compete with a $700 pc. PS4 has weak hardware as well.


There's something to be said about the no fuss no muss convenience of a console--which is why I purchase them. And for people with young kids, I really understand a console purchase.

After seeing TF on my X1 in alpha and beta, I decided on the PC version and I'm glad I did that. (That PC is connected to my 60" TV.") But, typically, I prefer a console purchase for my games.

And I'm very happy with my PS4--not as much with my X1.

And, yes, I visit Eurogamer's Digital Foundry for X1/PS4 comparisons.

Can I play Infamous Second Son and Dead Rising 3 on it? What about upcoming games like Destiny?

Microsoft is bound to drop the price significantly.

The Xbox One is way overpriced today and it's not selling well.
( Plus the hardware is weak and third party support is drying up but one thing at a time )

Of course Microsoft will drop the price. They do not have a choice.
Unless they just cease producing the Xbox One, which is already happening anyway.


Its the 3rd fastest selling console in history. Every console's price drops over its lifetime. Both the ONE's and PS4's price will fall eventually.

But you will still argue $500 for a ONE is a ripoff somehow.

Yeah but the FIVE HUNDRED NINETY-NINE US DOLLAR PS3!! was a hell of a lot more impressive in 2006, than the Xbox One is in 2014 (or 2013)

Pretty pointless asking about exclusive titles as if there aren't any PC exclusives.

Yeah 500 is way too much for a system, I don't care what anyone says.

Not pointless at all if those are the games he wants to play.
