Bestbuy in manahawkin Nj sold out in 12 mins when they opened nobody at the store would tell me how many they had though, with one employee telling who cares we have x1s in stock for only 100$ more you can play Dead Rising 3 lmfao.


Makes you wonder how many more systems Microsoft might be selling if they were 400.  For the record, DR3 IS pretty awesome.


i disagree with DR3 being anytype of awesome, but then again i didnt like any of the launch titles exclusive to either system much, Killzone was playable and pretty but got boring quickly, Ryse was boring after a little while, and DR3 well its the better of the bunch but still not better then DR2 or my fav DR1.  i think if MS kept thier 500$ one they got now and offered a 400$ one with NO kinect that would be better, but i think in the short and long term PS4 is going to offer a much wider selection of games.  

Regarding DR3, I agree on the bold.  I thought it was fun but I can see how you might not like it compared to the originals and respect that opinion.

Regarding the Kinectless SKU, that's fine with me as long as Microsoft rewards early adopters in SOME way.  I don't even have my Kinect hooked up still.  That being said, it seems unlikely that Microsoft will remove Kinect.  I think there is a better chance they will just bite the bullet and either lower the cost of the system or start bundling something with it.

i only had my kinect connected for i think the first day, i played with the voice features fell for that dipshits name  Xboxsignout , and it wasnt any faster to talk to my xbox then to pick the controller up and use it.  plus to use the kinect the cable would need to be 30 feet long for me being my console is in a closet with my other equipment as i keep everything neat and out of hte way.

Announced on their FB Page last night!

Reading around the internet apparently there's actually many people lining up at best buys LOL

This reminds me of when Wii had lines back in Jan 07 whenever it came back in stock!

Could be a twitter excerpt from the Nov release.

You go make Chad Warden proud.


No seeing as the first tweet makes mention of the Chelsea vs Man U game which was on the weekend.

The thing about lowering the cost of the system is that in terms of normal reduction of production cost, Sony will also be doing that.

And unfortunately, I seriously doubt that Kinect hardware can be similarly reduced in production cost: it's a bunch of lenses and such, not just chips.

So any reduction beyond what Sony can trivially achieve really means MS losing money by subsidizing it further.

That might make sense if they thought they could make more out of it by selling lots of games, but all signs are that Sony is dominating this gen,

and I don't really think that even a majorly price subsidized Kinect XBone will really be able to change that over-all picture.

It's clear that BOTH MS and Sony wanted this gen to not be losing money out of the gate, to be a more sure-thing money maker, so subsidies seem unlikely.

They knew that Sony would be cheaper for some time now, and they knew that would likely affect sale popularity, if they were going to change, they would have.

 

Removing Kinect, or offering a Kinect-less SKU, is a quick way to achieve that price reduction without any subsidy whatsoever.

Since Kinect is a major focus of XBone (otherwise it's just a weaker console), I think it would make sense to throw in free Kinect games with the Kinect bundle.   That at least helps it look valuable compared to PS4's Eye Camera, which is the relevant point of comparison.

MS is subsidizing (or owning) the devs creating Kinect games at this point anyways, so including some for free in Kinect bundles seems a reasonable promo.

(ideally offering several Kinect games, and including the choice of any one for free with Kinect2 purchase)

Heck, make all those Kinect games download-only, and they don't lose any on physical distribution or retailer margin, just plug in your Kinect and get your free game.

That can even be extended to original Kinect-XBone SKU purchasers, to reward their dedication... Although I wouldn't bet on that one
