With a five hundred dollar console? If MS isn't talking about aggressively dropping the price (they will), this is really a fantasy at this point. There's not much of a compelling exclusive lineup coming to justify the purchase of Xbox platforms for 2017-2018 unless MS hijacks EVERY popular Steam game, but that's not going to translate to instant console success. It's mainly for those that went through the past 4 years of hurt feelings instead of playing games. The majority of these, like the S, will be people replacing their consoles, not new customers. It'll do great at first, but I don't see it having legs.
Great response. Now all we can do wait and watch to see what happens.
Bet with Intrinsic:
The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.
