Is the Xbox One Too Expensive?

Coming into this console generation, none of the next-generation consoles were priced evenly. The Xbox One was a whopping 100 dollars more than the PS4, particularly because of its required Kinect camera. This has caused many gamers to turn to the PS4, simply to save money. This has an even greater impact when you consider both consoles have nearly exactly the same specs.

Unequivocally Yes.

When you can buy a ps4 that is over 50 percent more powerful when citing factual specs and it's cheaper than the xbox one then there isn't any doubt that the xbox one is too expensive at its retail price now.

I will agree that it is a bit overpriced in respects to its competition.

In time, both will be reduced to the sweet spot that has that mass market appeal.

Is the Xbox One Too Expensive? Yes when compared with its closest competitor The PS4. The PS4 has powerful GPU than the x1 and a fast memory system Than X1. The PS4 is also less expensive than the x1 by a $100 . But Microsoft does know it's customers 13-25 year old love online multiplayer games and it sales game consoles. The people who buy x1 do so because Microsoft Is focused Online multiplayer. Sony has a better online network with free online PS3 or great value with PSN +. Sony need to step up it game on first party multiplayer exclusive games. If SONY don't get some great multiplayer exclusives on PS4 they will let Microsoft back into to the console races. Sony need to win over 360 multiplayer gamers. Yes Sony has and will continue to have the best multiplatform games over x1. But a lot of xbox fans don't care about having the best multiplatform games. They want exclusive multiplayer games that a appeal to them.

I wonder how many such comments you'll be able to make before you lose a bubble/are banned for some period of time? If it was me, I wouldn't even be able to comment right now.

Anyway, the XB1 is probably too expensive for the market they're targeting. Folks that are THAT interested in controlling their cable box and TV via voice controls probably aren't gonna want to shell out $500 for an extra device.

In any case, we'll find out soon enough.

Another person who avoids the question by attacking the submitter. Seeing this a lot lately.

OT - Yes, but that's not the only thing hurting XB1 sales, at least not with the gamers I personally know. They all had bad experiences with RRoD. Some of them vowed never to buy another MS console and others said they'd wait to see how XB1's quality was. MS's own policies hurt them as well. Even though they reversed many of them, there's a perception that they just might go back to them at a later date once the install base is big enough. Mandatory purchase of Kinect is another thing counting against XB1, because even though it's the only piece of XB1 tech that's better than the lower priced PS4, it's still the latest version of a camera most people didn't want last generation. PS4's cam is entirely optional, and it's selling well. Lastly, XB1's reveal gave as much or more importance to multimedia as it did gaming, which many gamers noticed and didn't like.

Those are all things people say on the internet, but also things my personal gaming inner circle talks/talked about. Take that for what you will.
