Forums - Gaming Discussion - A cut to 299 might not help X1 much

First I would like you to know that i don't care about Metacritic, but i i would do like you said than i woul say that 75 is not a good score, and as far not good enough for all the hype the PlayStation 4 has!


I can see I'm wasting my time here but I'll reply anyway. The PS4 is clearly going to be the lead system for pretty much every console developer and has already obtained a far greater library of games then the XBOne. The WiiU is pretty much a non-factor because it has underpowered hardware and virtually zero third party support. It's a one horse race and the average consumer sees this. Just because the PS4 isn't really worth it now doesn't mean that it's all hype.

If X1 dropped to $299 this fall it would outsell PS4 1.5:1 minimum in NA. I expect it to outsell PS4 regardless in NA this fall. MCC is going to sell a lot of consoles and lets face it the PS4 fall lineup is extremely weak.


Edit: By fall I mean holiday season. Nov-Early Jan.

1-2k weekly from 20+ countries? Surely you're joking. None of them are big Xbox markets historically, but combined they'll surely add up to more than that weekly, especially with the heavy bundling MC is doing in those countries (FIFA in Tier 2 Europe for instance).

You remind me of Flaming Weazel, you're not yet another alt of him are you? The last one just got banned earlier today.

Compatred to what??? People dont just play exclusives and x1 doesn't have a good lineup this fall either, why does fall only matter?? Ps4 had MLB the show FF14 and tlou remaster what has MS had since Titanfall??? Such a BS post. Sony is smart to spread releases around.

Really? XB1 doesn't have a good fall lineup? How about Sunset Overdrive, Forza Horizon 2, and Halo:MCC vs Driveclub and LBP3. Its not even a contest which console has the better holiday lineup.

I picked the fall because that is by far when the most consoles are sold. The OP states at $299 the XB1 would still sell less than the PS4 and I'm predicting at $399 the XB1 will outsell the PS4 in NA this fall, which means it not outselling the PS4 at $299 is ludicrous.

Okay, so a collection of old games is going to get One from selling about 50% as much as PS4 in the US to MORE than PS4?

FIFA was bundled with One in Tier 1 European countries too. Look how well that worked out. Bundling FIFA with an unwanted console (in the European countries I speak of) isn't going to do much, since PS is the console for FIFA there.

I certainly feel a $299 X1 would give a significant boost to sales. Especially if PS4 is still $399 when that happens.

It could happen next year. So we'll have to wait and see.
