Online is the future offline and singleplayer is so 1999.

"Always Online" Using my internet for free to safe guard their software crosses a line with me. I'll pay for my console, software, internet and use Xbox live to provide me a expanded entertainment and gaming experience. Not to be held hostage by it. What will happen when they discontinue their 720 Xbox for the next generation console? Will we be stuck with an unusable console and games when they will no longer support it?

MS will shut off the 360 online stuff as soon as they see fit...and never bring it back.

So a base model for $300.00 + the $500.00 high end model + the $99.00 model= $899.00 + tax = $961.92 add XBL subs 35.00 x 3= 105.00 (online sale so no tax)= $ 1,066.92 damn am sold though the future ex wife will kill me . Hey MS bring it am in.

M$ has to open up
If all the rumors are true then no next box for me. Plus I will not pay over $400 for a console, and I don't buy "base" models.

I know these rumors aren't 100 percent true and confirmed yet, but there is a scary amount of leaks from reputable sources that are claiming they are true. Microsoft seems to have lost there way this gen and the upcoming gen looks to be more of the same, yet puerile well still buy it and call it the holy grail of game consoles, only for the yearly call of duty release and halo.

$500 does not seem like a lot to me.

Even the PS3 $499/$599 didn't seem too much, I waited regardless but I could replace my own hard drive and no subscription model.

Unlike the $500 nextbox which is probably still proprietary hard drive, no blu ray playback, online fees and probably still that damn 2.5mm audio jack instead of a standard 3.5mm.

So to me the $500 isn't the problem is the additional costs MS tacks on that is.

To be very honest $500 is the price point I am expecting for both the PS4 and next Xbox. I don't think its a stretch to think both companies will offer that price. I think the value proposition of $300 + 2yrs subscrip could be interesting it just dends on what Xbox Live evolves into.
Raoh  +   843d ago
$500 seems about right but I could see Sony going for a $399/$449 price just to regain their console market share and get as many consoles sold early.

Unlike MS and Nintendo, even during these tough economic times for sony, sony is not afraid to lose money on each console sold upfront, its par for the course for a hardware company.

they need to give me 99$ extra to make me take trouble using xbox
xDHAV0K24x  +   843d ago
Nintendo should just fold and be bought out by MS. If this were to ever happen, the bragging of 1st party games by ps3/4 would die out. Imagine playing mario kart on live?
