Did Microsoft make a mistake revealing the price of Xbox One before Sony's PS4?

Microsoft is only good at marketing monopoly products.

It didn't understand that people are very sensitive about console price.
And less sensitive about accessories.

It may make more money by selling the unit for $400 and kinect for $150.

I don't think any mistakes in the price structure were made. I think an unfortunate business situation happened for Microsoft. They unveiled a good product at an expected price just before their competitor was set to do the same. Sony was able to see what they did and then undercut them. That isnt so much a mistake by Microsoft as it was a smart move by Sony.

ALL games should have a Single Player mode. I can always guarantee I want to play when I turn on my system. I can't guarantee others will at the same time.

Wasn't Sony Originally planning to bundle their camera with the console and sell for $500 but decided against it last minute because Microsoft was doing the same? Either way, Sony would have been more willing to reverse their decision on the camera even if they originally announced it at E3.


Internet rumor.

And it's funny.....companies work on those presentations for months, and have everything planned out almost down to the second. but, yet, somehow Sony managed to change their whole presentation, all their graphics, all their hard copy, all their props, etc in the short time between Microsoft's and their presentation to take advantage of the outrage directed at Microsoft... Somehow I doubt it.
