Will the XB1 go back to regular price after the Holiday?

 

I believe that Microsoft will announce that the XB1 had an INCREDIBLE holiday.  They will follow that with some type of statement saying that they are going to listen to what their customers are saying and that the price cut will be permanent.

So, they are going to leave it the same "for the customers".

What do you think?

For now, MS have confirmed that after holidays the price will back 399$... the fans aren't a prof.



2020 predictions: NSW 25m, PS5 6m, XSX 4.5m, PS4 9m, XB1 3m

In December 2019 i predicted 21m Switch, but that was before COVID, obvius increased my predictions.

Wouldn't that be giving a big middle finger to everyone jumping on because of the limited time part? I don't think MS can afford to lose more public perception. They best jack it back up for a couple months at least.

Briefly, there will likely be some kind of new bundle early spring then official pricecut



I predict NX launches in 2017 - not 2016

I kind of doubt that people will take it as an insult that the price stays the same.  They could be upset if it dropped though.

 

Being a launch buyer, I am not upset that Titanfall was free a few months after launch and the system was selling for $50 off at the same time.  Now, look at the price! I only regret buying it so early and overpaying.  I don't blame Microsoft for dropping the price to a point of market adoption.

I am sure that there maybe be those few that actually care, but I would think that it would only be a few.

With relatively poor sales prior to the Christmas, Microsoft really had to think out of the box to help ensure that Christmas sales were unarguably favorable. Then, it would be business as usual at the start of 2015.



Nope, almost no chance of that happening.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

It shouldn't but it probably will. I don't understand why would unless they really don't looks operating losses... which no one does. But sales would fall through the floor. And why would anyone bother purchasing when they know they can wait for a sale. Whats worse, if they don't stay at 349, what happens if Sony drops to 349 after January. Xbox One can not compete with price parity. They would have to go even lower.



Depends if they want to sell any consoles in January.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

If they abandon the pricecut, they will lose the only chance they have to catch the PS4 in NA. I don't even think the XBone can reach or surpass the sales of PS4 in NA with its current price.



You know it deserves the GOTY.
