Forums - Sony Discussion - In my opinion Xbox one X will be a good thing for sony

They'd end up with egg on their face, but why not release a new Xbox (4?) in another year or so? Or maybe we're missing the point, if Microsoft really believes in incremental improvements over time it'll just keep putting out better Xbox Ones. I think that's a mistaken strategy, but it means they could just release a new model every 12 months.

At this point, I find it odd that they're asking for $500.

I mean, the original Xbox One was $500 and the pice just KEPT getting cut. It's $300 now, right?

Anywho, I think they'd actually move way more units if it was $400.



These iterative consoles like the X and pro are for a niche audience and will not move the needle on overall sales of the PlayStation 4 or the Xbox One. I hope to see a six-year generation cycle. Microsoft will put out a new iteration every two years of the cycle and Playstation will put out a pro in the middle of the cycle.

It may end up being beneficial in that sense, but I think Sony are in the position where they would have launched PS5 whenever they want regardless of XBX. Microsoft may want to launch their next system before PS5 though, but if they do that then they'll likely be the underpowered system once again.
agreed. XBX wont influence the PS5 release though it could certainly give Sony less to worry about. But we have no idea how XBX will be received so that is important too.

I dunno. Pretty sure Sony said that Pro was making up 1/5 of all PS4 sales since it was introduced. 1/5 from Pro launch seems more significant than not moving the needle.

sony pony cryyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy hahahahaha

Can you tell me how to report people? thnx



come on, you know throwing random big numbers at casuals is gonna get somebody's dick hard.

being serious though - the Xbox One S is basically on par with the standard PS4 model plus a few added benefits such as 4K upscaling. add that to the fact that the Xbox One X is above the PS4 Pro, and people may just start turning in the other direction.



Ps5 will not coming before 2021. And I think it wouldn't change if xbx didn't existed.

I also helps as an anchor... when people see X1X being 500, both vanilla PS4 and PS4Pro will look better (PS4Pro won't look as pricey anymore).

Hmm, I guess it depends if they're going to be focusing on the X's price, or the vanilla One's price.

They also may NOT. Which I think is more likely. You might get a few graphics whores willing to spend a few extra bucks on an X1X but not enough to have any meaningful impact on this gen's sales.
