If The New Xbox Was Cheaper Than PS4, Would You Consider It?

Price is always a determining factor. If money was tight and you really wanted a next-gen console this year, would you spring for a cheaper Xbox 720?

All depends on the games and content. If they have some games and tons of entertainment then no. Microsoft really needs to show gamers they care and do all they can to give gamers more exclusive games next gen and do something about Xbox Live. Either make it worth the price or make it free to play online. All those factored in would make my decision.

Yeah I agree with Kratos.

I do consider myself more of new school gamer (with old school gaming roots). I want games first and my services second. The service is something I consider imortant in these consoles.

You are right the games have to be there first and foremost.

Which was the problem with the Wii U. Nintendo showcased and promised all these games and while they did have a solid line up, the software is extremely dry.

Resulting in slow sales and adopt rate. Now remember the Wii U is significantly stronger than PS3 and Xbox. And even updated its IOS and made the overall system faster.

But that means absolutely nothing....with out games.

I want to agree with you but there is one thing I can't forget. Remember, back when the systems had just come out? in the first years MS was paying developers to keep their games either exclusive to 360 or release it earlier, or provide additional downloadable content for 360 (which really sucks for the gaming community IMO) Then as the years progressed, you saw less and less focus on games and more focus on the casual and secondary entertainment. It seems that this game plan has not changed for the 720. In fact only recently there was rumors that they are going after 3rd parties to basically Pay for exclusivity. You have to ask, for how long? This game plan is only viable if they believe that the initial push is all that matters. Then the people who buy into the system will carry the system on for the rest of the generation just as they did with the 360. This strategy actually works for MS, the xbox owners are not upset with MS and MS did make profit so it works for them. So xbox's initial game focus will not be telling of the system's long term focus. Don't get me wrong, I will eventually purchase an xbox, but for now, I will be buying a PS4 for my gaming needs.

it MUST be cheaper, going head to head against SONY in the same time period with the same price is a suicide imo, yeah I prefer xbox 360 this gen (still like ps3) but that's the truth and btw ps2 was one of my fav consoles of all time

personally I think ill buy both, for the best of both worlds, playstation have proven that there 1st party development teams can come up with some truly terrific games, the birth of the 360 had some great games aswell, gow, halo 3 and lost odyssey, but all the quality games on 360 just died away at the same time the ps3 games got better and better, hope the same doesnt happen for next gen.

PS4 is a definite for me. The New Xbox has to have everything the PS4 has, games I'm really interested in (of which the 360 didn't have many for me), and an extremely low price before I buy one. I am not a fanboy of any specific console manufacturer, I actually played my original Xbox just as much (maybe even more) as my PS2. This past generation has been completely different. I bought the 360 for 200 bucks and played 4 games on it. I just don't know if it's worth the investment.
