XBOX 360 owners still hesitant to purchase XBOX ONE, even with $100 price cut!!
While some stores are seeing increased interest for the Xbox One following the console?s $100 price drop, a recent survey shows that most Xbox 360 owners are still hesitant to upgrade their systems.
900 people that read DealNews eh? Damn...MS IS doomed then.
I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.
I won't buy either console in the first year, they are prone to technical failure and no games. After a year plus they work most of the kinks out and you have games to play.
never buy a console at launch

Until more games are out that you can only play on the new systems then people have little incentive to switch. Price, hardware performance and plenty of games still on PS360 is kind of a great reason to wait it out.

Because I'm not a cry baby.
Happens every gen, I remember buying a 360 early on yet I would still pop in Halo 2 and play that because there wasn't too much out at launch. Right now a lot of the games available on 360/ps3 look almost identical to their One/PS4 counterparts. Once more exclusives come out for next gen consoles only that is when you will see a big switch.

The Kinectless SKU isn't really much of a price cut. It's really not that far off the recent deals for Xbox One with Kinect and Titanfall included. It's arguably less value than that bundle for anyone who wanted either or both of those two things.
As such, I think that the Xbox One still has a price problem. The new Kinectless SKU doesn't solve that problem, and it's not meant to. It's meant to solve a different problem.
I am planning to transition from an Xbox 360 & PS3 to just a PS4 in the eighth generation. I am waiting for Star Wars: Battlefront to be released.

Why would the ones holding out still rush out and buy a next gen console when almost every game being released still is hitting the old gen as well?
A smart consumer who has been waiting will continue to wait till a good bundle comes along or a true exclusive comes out that they actually want.
I feel like even if I didn't have my PS4 and X1 right now that I wouldn't be missing out on much at all.
