Pretty dissapointed with the price drop

I was really expecting the system to go 150$ down, not 100$. Now it still isn't able to compete with the PS4.

If Microsoft wants to make a good deal it needs to ask 349 for the XOne. No one except the really hardcore gamers are going to be willing to pay the same price for an inferior device when they could just as well buy a much more powerfull PS4.

I agree.

That said expect trolls, fanboys, and flamers to attack you for posting it.

This is just a new SKU not a price drop, expect a price drop around the holidays for 349.99

I still think they may announce 349.99 at e3 and were just testing the waters known as internets early to see if 399 was accepted.
(same price for weaker hardware, its not)

Unbearable is it? The suffering of strangers, the agony of friends.

Wouldn't it be the hardcore gamers that knows about which one is stronger than the other?

People will cough up an extra 50 for ps4 the same way 4mil xbox owners coughed up an extra 100 for the xbox.

I think any consumer that uses a search engine before purchasing a product will be made aware of the difference.
Blind buyers would look past it though for sure.
