Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Xbox One back at $349 from tomorrow!

I figured they were going to announce this during the Windows 10 event.

Not surprising. Feel sorry for the people who have bought an X1 since Jan 2nd

Haha that was fast. I feel bad for the people who bought one a few days ago lol

You guys never disappoint.

So you don't feel bad?! You monster! Those poor souls paid 50$ more =(

Hopefully you can take your receipt and get that money back, I'm sure you'll be able to.


This is pretty obvious. Stores have return policies that fall right in this category of getting money back. And I don't think 1 week would make them obselete.



Bravo, Xbox One. You needed to be cut 150 dollars in just over a year to sell well.

Well that was quicker than I thought. But honestly I was surprised to see them put the price back up to $399 in the first place.. This should probably ensure Xb one outsells PS4 on a monthly (NPD) basis in the USA for most of the year. If it doesn't...

MS has obviously recognised that consumers perceive that Xb one is just not as good a machine as PS4, and thus Xb one needs to be at a lower price point. Even though the PR says USA, I wonder if other markets will get an official price cut soon. It's already officially cheaper in the UK right, 325 vs 299?

Nop, UK price point is about 320-230(not exactly sure).

300 is retailer discount, just like ps4 and then XBO were 280 2 weeks ago on Amazon UK for a while. UK market is quite competitive.

Not in Canada =(. Lots of stores have shitty return policies here or they will know that you're going to try and return it to buy it back to 50$ less so some won't let you. It varies depending on where you live.

As I said in the thread about it going back up to $400, it kills the momentum they gained in November and December.

It seems Microsoft agrees and now dropped the price again so quickly since they don't want to lose all that traction they gained.



iPhone = Great gaming device. Don't agree? Who cares, because you're wrong.

Currently playing:

Final Fantasy VI (iOS), Final Fantasy: Record Keeper (iOS) & Dragon Quest V (iOS)     

    

Got a retro room? Post it here!

So I guess you're still not disappointing.

I'm pretty sure if we call Bill Gates right now and ask him if the doesn't care if he's losing money he will laugh on us.
They can lose money, but they definitely don't want it and care a lot if they are losing.

No they don't, if they did they would pack it all in. What they get out of it far outweighs the losses.

You do remember Bill introduced the money pitt that was original xbox right? And then they went and made another that lost billions at launch ...

All of they products are made to make them money, if they fail at this point it doesn't make them gifts to consumers as they don't care about losing money, it makes them failures who were bad to the company and they certainly care about it.
They are doing all of this because they think it'll be better for them in the future, ever since the original XBOX, they want to make money on it, they don't want to lose money, no one wants to lose money, and when they are losing money they really care about it, and I don't even know why are we arguing about this because I'm totally sure you are a smart guy and knows it very well.

I know they can lose money, and they are using this to try to spread the product and generate this money they are losing now + more money in the future, and this doesn't come close to "they don't care about losing money", they don't want this, they are not a charity organization, they are a business company.
Money is their middle name. The first and the last as well.



Well I'm sure that one week of raising the price back to $400 was totally necessary, MS you're retards sometimes.



Smart move by MS but I hope they give something to the people who bought between Jan 3rd and now.
