Better but still won't outsell or catch up to Sony.

The xboxone just isn't worth the price of a ps4.

400 - to play 900p 30fps
Or
400 - to play 1080p 60fps

Deciding not to undercut Sony was a mistake.
It will boost sales for sure, but not enough.

It may have caught up at $349 but at $399 it won't make much of a difference. The $450 Forza 5 or Titanfall bundles were better deals than a $399 kinectless Xbox One.

i agree pretty much.

349 like i said in another topic would have been better.

The nervousness of Sony Fanboys is so palpable, you can almost feel it....

Still gotta wait for the Kinect-free models to hit the stores.

So sales shouldn't improve right away, if they do at all.

Me? I'm still waiting for a game library with more than a couple games I actually want. But today's announcements are definitely a couple steps in the right direction.

It won't change much even when the kinectless SKUs hit retail. The Xbone's problems run much deeper than a $500 price tag and an NSA spy camera no one wants.

The Titanfall bundle was an amazing deal last month but didn't have too much of an impact so it's hard to say. It's possible MS poisoned the Xbox brand too much at this point.

These moves may do nothing to improve sales.

Microsoft had 2 major points separating it from the PS4: Games with Gold games were yours forever and Kinect.

Now with both consoles offering the same level of service at the same price, with the PS4 having stronger hardware, it really will come down to exclusive games.

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.
