A Kinect-less SKU for $399 still has a major problem

And that problem is it'll still be a worse value than the PS4, which is also $399 but more powerful.

They would need to cut even further and price the X1 at $349-379 to be competitive, but is that even possible?

This is subjective.

Why do PS4 fans even hang out on the Xbox One board? Nothing better to do?

Value really means nothing to non nerds and non mouth breathers.

Remember the 250 dollar wii that sold 100 million units?

I agree with him, and I own an Xbone instead of a PS4.

It was already down to an effective $390 or so with all the sales and bundles last month which didn't help much all things considered. Maybe $349 will be the sweet spot.

I agree that it would be a ripoff IMO. Lesser hardware at the same price. I see $349 to be more fitting for a SKU without the Kinect.
