"Whitten was clear: "[$499] is our price for Xbox One." "

Welp. That buries that rumor.

But that doesn't mean they won't have cheaper SKUs..

Considering the fact that they confirmed Kinect was still required, yeah, yeah it kinda does mean they won't have cheaper SKUs, at least not at first.

Do you still need Kinect for console to operate?

Even after $100 price drop, which has never happened within first 3 years of consoles life cycle, it would then only be the price the PS4 was originally.

It would have to drop $150 to compete with PS4's eventual $50 price drop in console 2-3 years from now.

It's like they were so arrogant about beat Sony in the 100 meter dash that they lined up at 150 meters just because they were that confident in themselves.

Will still happen. Says it right in the article.

Lolz at $500 upfront cuz we think this console will grow and evolve. I'll keep my 360 its better than a 180.

"Kinect is a toolset for developers"

Yeah, never heard that before right?

Grave1770d ago (Edited 1770d ago )

Ya there's sooooo many awesome Kinect games! ...lolz

Mr_Nuts1770d ago


So true, this is why they've made it mandatory so first party developers will be forced to include it in their amazing games

Basicaly it's

"If we can't make awesome Kinect games we'll just force it into awesome non Kinect games"
