Early adopters get stiffed.

Always.


You're right. Actually they have more reasons to be happy than to be sad. This will help their console to get more market share and ultimately more games.

"Ultimately, though, this is how consumer electronics works, and we all knew the risks. Whether a brand new disc format, television or smartphone, you have the choice of paying more to be first -- enjoying your new gadget for several months before anyone else -- or holding out for a discount."

Nuff said. I'm happy that we will get better deals and MS will actually try harder. Still remember all the things Sony did to claw their way up the sales charts while MS just laid back and coasted. Now we will see the reversal. The benefits of losing (yet still profitable/sustainable).

I myself could give a shit.

I've been using my XB1 for 3 months and have enjoyed it.  What difference does it make to me what someone else pays for it?  I've got it now and worrying about what the price is now is a waste of time.  All electronics prices go lower over time.  If they drop the Price of the XB1 now, or 6 months from now, what is the real difference?  Nothing.

Just my take...

same here.

same everywhere from the people i have spoken to.

Basically This.


I will add to that list. This is clearly the work of Sony fans. They are angry for us I guess.



UK buyers, can you explain to me something. The price listed includes tax correct. So that is 399.99 with tax included within that price correct?

So why do articles always compared products to USA, where tax is never included in the price.

$499.99 + Tax

 

(I mean yes, you guys are still getting ripped off), but not as much as 100 pounds like every article seems to imply) (More like 40 pounds, if USA had European Tax Rates)

Starting to think that only Sony fans are being outraged, pretending what they would feel if they bought one (sigh...), while actual early adopters enjoyed the time they had on the X1 and knew the risks of early adopting.

Because while this is great news, lashing out at the time of the price drop seems like their only logical action to spin it against us.

Some early adopters pay hundreds more than retail just to get the console. Those guys were not only slapped in the face, they were slapped in the face with a big cock.

Is this actually a joke?

A price cut is permanant, a sale is not. Doesn't have to be universal for it to be a price cut .. rofl.

Where did MS come out and say this was a permanent price for UK?

Its a sale... not a price cut. Clearing out initial stock. On to of that, people who got an Xbox day one also got a free game.

How is "was £429 now £399" not a price cut?

Do you not know what a sale is?

A price cut is universal. Not one country.

Do either of you not know what a sale is?

A sale is what Link looks for on Windfall Island so that the boat can sail for longer distances.  

 

 

 

 

 

Buy Wii U, people!

And some of those that got cock slapped actually like big cock so ya know.



I LOVE paying for Xbox Live! I also love that my love for it pisses off so many people.

Pretty sure every buyer of the X1 in UK would be slightly peeved that they missed out on a better deal. I don't get why people are trying to argue against this...its only natural. What average console buyer actually cares about sales and market share?

Anyways, not a big deal, people would probably be pissed for like a minute and then happily go play on their new console.

Been saying this a lot but I will say it again...too many people on the chartz acting as if the console war is already over...this gen has only started! Bombs will be dropped, momentum will change, shits going down!
