I think all the xbone really needs to be successful is a generous price drop. :o

I think the big problem with the xbone is that it has inferior specs AND costs more than the ps4. I know that MS thinks that the added functionality with the kinect and stuff like that should justify the increased cost but at the end of the day the costumers don't see it that way. The problem isn't the specs itself since time has shown that isn't what makes or breaks a game console.

I mean would the ps2 have done as well as it did if it cost 100 dollars more than the xbox and gamecube and sony had justified the price difference by saying "It can play dvds right out of the box!" I don't think so. The same thing with the wii. Would people have wanted to buy the wii if it cost 100 dollars more than the competition because it claimed to have revolutionary motion controls?

So I propose that MS keeps the kinect and drops the price down to 300 dollars. o.o And include a coupon for a free milkshake because everyone likes milkshakes.

$299 with no KINECT 2.0 is a great idea given that it's only good as an exclusives only type of console like the Wii-U. All mulitplats are superior on the PS4 and the UI is still a buggy mess on the XBOX ONE and a huge step backwards from the 360.

400 is the sweet spot

it was $450 for a month
i think it is funny they let the "SALE" go away weeks before e3 and its back to $500
now i expect them to make it $450 permanently...with a big announcement at e3

i hope they drop to $400 but i highly doubt it

there already were price drops and discounts and sales
and in the UK it was same price as ps4 with titanfall + 1 year of XBL + 1 free game of choice and still got outsold by PS4.

It's already successful. Just not as successful as the PS4

$349, but I don't see that happening for at least another 18 - 24 months. I can wait.

It already has been sucessful though. Just because the Sony fanboys here like to think otherwise, DOWBLACKNINJA posted...

Absolutely. You'd think otherwise though with the ridiculous amount of Sony fans here.
