Buy or Sell: Purchasing an Xbox One

GotGame: Many of the staffers have been mulling around the idea of whether or not an Xbox One at launch is in their future. Have the changes in policies changed your mind? Is $499 still too much?

More than a handful of N4G users have been cancelling their PS4 preorders and switching to the X1 because of recent announcements from Microsoft.

Personally, the price is still too steep so I'll wait and see what other revisions are made by Microsoft. I swore to not buy a console in the first year of release, but Ryse is looking AMAZING! So maybe not.

golding891828d ago

Some of them possibly but not many i guess

killcole1828d ago

Well this is Sony 4 Gamers.

Lovable1828d ago

Huh? Delusion can only take you so far.

stage881828d ago

Yes a handful have changed from PS4 to X1 but hundreds have switched from X1 to PS4.

NeverEnding, you're so funny! ^^

People are cancelling ps4 pre-oders for X1? Why, when, what?

andreasx1828d ago

I'd much rather say people cancelling x1 preorders due to recent announcements from MSFT(delay in a large amount of europe). MSFT couldn't keep their promise they gave back at E3, so now it is backfiring right in their faces.

Now that's some real news right there! /s

I'm kind of on the fence. I pre-ordered both so I can make a last-minute decision. $399 for the PS4 sounds much nicer than $499, and most of the games I'd play at launch are multi-platform. That being said, I just like the Xbox One interface more but not sure I want to pay an extra $100 right off the bat. Still deciding...

LordMaim1828d ago

You'll see some more of the PS4 interface next week at Gamescom. Then you can decide.

AngelicIceDiamond1828d ago

The interface? Well, I guess an interface is the winning factor for some.

HugoDrax1828d ago

I pre ordered both day one consoles as well. I'm keeping both, but if someone offers me triple the price to take the PS4/XB1 off my hands, I'll be happy to oblige.

I only have one friend who canceled his PS4 day one pre order in preference for the XB1. I advised him to wait till after GamesCom/TGS but he said he's already made his decision. Oh well.....Happy Gaming gamers.

Rimeskeem1828d ago

if it helps you will also see more exclusives for ps4 at gamescon

niaboc1828d ago

Im in the EXACT same situation. I have both preordered. 100 on the ps4 and 400 on the x1. Was gonna wait till gamescom to see which one i wanna actually stick with. I like the hardware advantage and support of the ps4 but i love the x1s interface and features and 300,000 xbl servers and i like the kinect but the gpu being 30-50% better in the ps4 kinda sucks. Only thing that sucks about ps4 is i bet since so many people will have psn at launch, thier online servers will be bogged down if they dont add many many more psn servers by launch. X1s online will be far superior with 300k dedicated servers. No more p2p gaming, like they will be doing on ps4.

RYSE on Xbone is only thing that has my attention but for an invested in my gaming future its the PS4 then maybe an Xbone when a slim version comes out..........if it comes out!

Jessica_VazquezGR1828d ago

I have been an Xbox only gamer for years now but I am going to be buying a PS4 at launch. when i do finally get a Xbox One, because I do need one for my freelance work, I will be buying it pre-owned or at some black friday deal. There was documentation uncovered revealing that they could have sold the Xbox One for $100 less even with the Kinect bundled in but they decided to up the price anyway.

Convas1828d ago

Oh no you don't. You can't just waltz in talking about secret documents and not have facts to back up those claims.

Jessica_VazquezGR1828d ago

Here's the article. They stated specifically - "If we sell 10 million consoles at $100 more that's a billion dollars"


jackanderson19851828d ago

they could have given away the xbox one for free if they wanted but they settled on a price point that they felt offered value for money and netted them a nice return... you know like how all corporations work

No_Limit1828d ago

I am selling........

.....some of my old games to fund for the new games on XB1.


Rimeskeem1828d ago

im keeping my games because the systems arent backwards compatible but then when sony gives us mroe game streaming ill start selling them

n4rc1828d ago

I bail on old hardware once I upgrade.. Ps3 sold last week to a buddy.. 360 will be given to a friends kid..

I'd rather give my games away to kids then get ripped off by GameStop.. Although some cash would be nice to offset the initial purchase.. Gonna be an expensive November.. Lol.. Well worth it tho

NukaCola1828d ago

But GTA and Beyond Two Souls....
