If X1 dropped to $299 this fall it would outsell PS4 1.5:1 minimum in NA. I expect it to outsell PS4 regardless in NA this fall. MCC is going to sell a lot of consoles and lets face it the PS4 fall lineup is extremely weak.


Edit: By fall I mean holiday season. Nov-Early Jan.

Okay, so a collection of old games is going to get One from selling about 50% as much as PS4 in the US to MORE than PS4? 

PS4 is not 2:1 in NA

"A cut to 299 might not help X1 much" I wouldn't bet on it.



Yeah I agree. I think the Xbox One should be $250 to be a justifiable purchase. Of course this means I think the Wii U should be $150.

Yet.  Wait for the non-stop onslaught of exclusives coming in a couple months.

A cut to 299$ with a redesign, released in the summer would probably cause an explosion in sales. We all know what happened when PS3 got its redesign and pricecut, we would probably see something similar.



$350 is moving units, MS needs to replenish retailers with bundles, especially SO white X1.
A $299 H5 Xbox1 slim bundle would cause a black hole in the US.



Do you have fun playing a console different than mine?

DON'T!!!

Yes, a cut to 299 might not help much, if a cut to 349 is already increasing sales by 100 - 200%

$350 just the X1, it's already sold out on Amazon.
