[POLL] Will a $400 kinectless Xbox One be enough to take on the PS4?

Forums - Gaming Discussion - [POLL] Will a $400 kinectless Xbox One be enough to take on the PS4?

Will a $400 price keep the One close in sales to the PS4?

Yes, and it will bring it above the PS4 even 24 7.67%
 
Yes 28 8.95%
 
No, but it will allow it ... 91 29.07%
 
No 169 53.99%
 
Total:312

No. It is weaker and perceived as inferior in almost every respect by the general public. It SHOULD cost less. If I were MS I would try as hard as possible to make the Xbox One $300. Disk Drive, Kinect, whatever. That is what it will take.

It is half as strong and the price should reflect that...

There will not be a kinectless xbone...end of thread.

Microsoft seems to be more focused on 2015 at the moment, and still don't have much lined up for 2014 yet beyond Quantum Break, maybe Halo 2 AE, and maybe Forza H2. Those will all sell respectively but not be real hardware pushers like GT, Infamous, and The Order. The only reason why I'm not listing Titanfall is because I feel that the XBone version sales will be severely damaged if the rumors of being on par with the 360 version are true. More people will most likely buy it on 360 if that's the case.

Whilst I agree that Forza H2 will not be a hardwear pusher, why on earth do you think the Order will be?

 101K preorders in the US alone, and we still don't even have a solid release date or even gameplay. I can see that game skyrocketing in hype one those 2 things happen and inFamous releases. Given the PS4's quickly growing install base, and that being the first genuine next gen exclsuive beyond inFamous, I can see that game pushing Gears level sales LT.

Thats very flawed reasoning.  The vast majority of pre-orders will be people who own systems.  And Titanfall (which you discount) has double the pre-orders on X1 alone.

to win in the US? yea
everywhere else? no



Sales would certainly rise for the Xbox one. It could catch up but who knows.

FOR GODS SAKE. THERE WILL BE NOOOOOO KINECTLESS SKU.

It will be a DISCLESS sku. Xbox wont be a hardware thing in 8 years. It will be a service. Xbox One Discless SKU is the best way forward. And the first of the console makers to embed themselves into full Digital titles.

Did not the PS4 release first, and with it all day and date digital titles, for every game released?

 inFamous has almost twice as many too, but both those titles have solid release dates and we know a lot more and have seen a lot more from both. We still know very little about The Order, and it already has a good level of hype behind it. If you've been on N4G lately, you would see that pretty much any article pertaining to that title gets several hundred degrees almost instantly. There's a lot of attention for it, and that will only as more about the game releases. If it gets good reviews and lots of publicity, there's no reason why it can't become the deciding factor for the millions of gamers who still on the fence about purchasing a next gen console. Gears had that same effect on the 360 back in the day. The Order can too.
