This price does fall in line with what I had been expecting it to be.....

I real shocker in all this is that all this time there has/had been an increasing number of people making the x1x out to be this generation defining trump card from MS.

I think people are going to be surprised how little everyone that doesn't have a PC cares about 4k gaming now. Especially when its $500.

What I don't get about MS though is this. They saw first hand what a $500/$600 price tag did to the mighty PlayStation brand. Their most successful console so far rode on the back of that herculean sony fuck up. Yet they released the xb1 at $500. That tanked....... and nw they are "again" releasing the x1x at $500?Like don't they learn?

Here is the kicker.... by the time this console is out, you will be able to buy a PS4 for less than half its price..... and play the exact same games that it plays....... that 4k better stream diamonds.

 

Is it just me? or were the people cheering during the xb1 conference "planted".....

I mean, cheering for 4k bluray plyback and memory bandwidth? Like really?

Some people around the world beg for bread, others cheer for memory bandwidth. It all depends on how desperate you are. 

I think XB has either realized that trying to compete directly with the true PS is an uphill battle, like climbing Everest, or they have decided that they are going to become the Apple of the console market. Either way, they have made it clear that they are not going to try and go head to head with PS and are rather setting their own course and taking along whoever will follow.

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

How many storage?
500 gb, 1tera or 2 tera?



It looks like MS soft exit of the console market for the windows gaming market has indeed begun. I'm not sure if they will keep the XBOX brand alive at this point (IMO).



In the wilderness we go alone with our new knowledge and strength.

When Larry Hryb (Major Nelson) showed off XB1X in person he said 1TB but didn't seem entirely sure. He did say there would only be one sku for now and made sure to mention external storage shortly after.

i was thinking the exact same thing, reactions from them throughout both occured before those or the rest of the audience and significantly more exaggerated,

 

the cheers were not in line with what was being shown

A reasonable price for that nice piece of hardware and huge improvement over X1, I'll pick it up day one.

Wish it would have been $399 it would have sold much more units. Still, it should be a no-brainer for active gamers who want the best multiplat games and prefer Xbox exclusives.



The price isn't too high, but price was never the thing that would make it fail in the first place.

The only thing I hate about this is that a 299 Price for the PS4Pro is now impossible. The scorpio had one year before it release, how was 399 not possible M$???

Im buying it for the portability (my pc has none lol) and the uhd player and stuff if I already owned an xbox one S I would have skipped this console.

Its a good price for people who don't own an xbox its a pretty bad price for people who own an xbox in my opinion.

The problem is they didn't convince many people who don't have an xbox to buy one with their showing last night unless you really want to play the third party games in the best quality on a console and that isn't a lot of people.

Anyway it was expected.

Because they want to make money. Selling it far under value is losing them money. Seems like a sensible decision. It's not like they have to gain anything anyway so why not just coast along?
