Forums - Gaming Discussion - So... We really just went through all of August with basically no next gen info from MS and Sony?

What ever happened to the August announcement? There was suppose to be one in June right? Moved to August?

They also dropped their 20/20 plans. An announcement every month. There wasn't one in June. They dropped in August.

Yep, there's a 52 page thread harping on how Nintendo has no announced games for this holiday. Meanwhile, it is September and we don't even have release dates or price points for Sony and Microsoft's new consoles that are supposed to be launching this year.

Nintendo will always be held to a higher standard than these newcomer companies. They've been doomed since the 1800's!

Sony and MS could announce the launch details a week before and it wouldn't change a thing. 

LOL

Are you guys that rich that buying a console is like going to the cinema without knowing what is on theaters? You just open the wallet and buy whatever console in selling, isn't it? 

You realise this happens with products more expensive than consoles right? 

Like Samsung did it in August with the announcement of the S7 (not just price and launch), cheapest model was $649. And seems they didn't have any issues selling it.

We've known about these consoles for over a year now. Ppl will be financially ok to be part of the launch quite easily.



Yeah even given the 2020 year we have had, this is still bizarre. I don’t think it has to do with price, I think there legit might be a shortage of consoles and they are both holding off on prices and preorders so that they’ll know how many they can sell and prepare people. 

Price matters for the overall generation but it doesn’t matter for launch, hardcore fans of either will still buy them. Even as shitty as the Xbone launch lead up was, it had phenomenal sales.

Phones are obtained free through contract deals by the majority of people so you're not paying the full cost up front that's not a good comparison as you cover the costs in your service subscription over two years.

or it could be as easy as neither wants to go first. You look bad if you have the higher price or you could lose a lot of money if you go too low.



I feel the need to remind everyone that the same was said about Nintendo when they waited until January 13th, less than 2 months before the Switch’s launch, to reveal the details, and look how well that turned out for them.

Patience.

And the Switch had months of shortages after launch, especially in Japan.  But this was fine because it launched in March and there wasn't a massive holiday around the corner to get the consoles to customers by.

When launching a console in November, they have to make as many as possible available within the first month because everyone will want it by Christmas.  A longer lead-in time is needed so they know how many consoles to have available within that first month.  At this point they may have started producing the consoles, but they're flying blind about how many they'll need until the price and release dates are public.

Not rich at all but if u been gaming for a long time, u would save for the highest price which would be $599 plus whatever games u like to buy. U don't need to wait for the price as it could be anywhere between 399 to 599 lol.
