That doesnt help justify the $500 price tag (plus needing an XBL Gold subscription to play online). It's too expensive

mikeslemonade1743d ago

Not a bad price, but just not enough content.

PraxxtorCruel1743d ago

Perfect for me. My live is pretty much running out in September and this way I'll be getting another years worth included in the price of the console. Next-gen is definitely looking interesting.

farhad2k81743d ago

$560 for an XBOX ONE + XBL GOLD.
If you're a new XBOX user, I feel sorry for you.

--Onilink--1743d ago

what price were you actually expecting??? from the moment that they said kinect was on every console $500 was a given.

Same thing will happen with PS4, if Sony decides to bundle the PSEYE2 with every PS4 it will probably be $500 too, $450 the lowest

hakesterman1743d ago

The PS4 Won't be $ 499.99 because they aren't going to bundle pseye in it. But I wouldn't be surprised if it's $ 449.00 because it has Faster DDR5 Memory in it.

Cool but it is all about the DRM. If they keep the DRM, I'm out. It's really that simple.

merciless1743d ago

just so you're aware

$500 = £250

£429 = $860

Give or take marginal fluctuations. The British pound is worth two American dollars. The Brits are getting shafted on this one

iamgoatman1743d ago


"The British pound is worth two American dollars."

LOL. $500 is £321, not £250. The current rate at the time of posting is £1 = $1.56. It has been 2:1 in AGES.

travelguy2k1743d ago (Edited 1743d ago )

1 GBP is currently $1.56 USD. UK still getting shafted but not as bad as you infer.


you beat me to it, +bubble

429 GBP = $668.33 USD :(

dcbronco1743d ago

merciless are you new to gaming? The UK always gets screwed. At least you get it day one this time.

Why o why1743d ago

Vat at 20% included in the price for goods by law .... but we get screwed regularly

Don't you still have to add the tax to the us price. Thats a reason I never try to do conversions as im never sure what your tax is

dcbronco1743d ago

It's weird in the US. You pay state and federal taxes. Except on the Internet. Online you pay taxes if there is a store in your area. Not if there isn't. But somehow you still do even if they don't have a store sometimes(there is a rule I can't remember). But that's rare. Then there is state tax. If the company has a store in you state, you pay taxes online. If they don't you don't. Except if your state has decided you have to. Most won't do that. And some states don't charge state taxes even if you are in a store. Some don't charge state taxes at all even for income. But they have higher business and point of sales taxes to get income. Basically all fifty states have their own rules.

Why o why1743d ago

Cheers... you just made my understanding worse....;)

PS+ is now required to play multiplayer on PS4. Funny that Sony Faboys are still raving about XBL pricetag.

shutUpAndTakeMyMoney1742d ago

talisker1743d ago

Keep it. Or bury it next to E.T.

by your logic, a person can only ever express their liking of something, but not their disliking of it.

why? get over it. i'm sorry kiddos get butthurt because OTHER people dislike the console they happen to like.

grow up, kids.
