The Xbox One X is coming and at least one estimate thinks it will be $600. But there's no way Microsoft would make a mistake like that.
It'll be $499.99 USD.
Yep, Phil already said that he wants the SX to be powerful and reasonable priced. I think $499.99 is a given.
S-$400 model 250gb ssd and 10gb ddr6 ram Pro-$500 model 500gb ssd 12gb ddr6 ram Elite-$600 1 terabyte ssd 16gb ddr6 ram overclocked cpu and liquid or Vapor Cooling
Since the box is big that helps bring the price down they can fit off the shelf components rather than spending the money to modify the chips to fit into a tiny system , im alright with that plan, i dont get why tablets are underpowered compared to phones though when thay have alot more space to fit components , i see android phones flying to the $1,400 price range but tablets at $600
Microsoft better deliver some great exclusives for that price.
True story. I was a Scorpio edition purchaser, and it’s become my kids Fortnite machine.
But they have Games Pass? it's about the amount of games, not the quality anymore.
What a wast of money whiteman. I play mine everyday
Any higher and they will have a really hard time competing.
I think that's the max price that any console maker should go for. Any more and the subconscious sees it being closer to a grand, as opposed to less than $500.
If its $599 then this may be the first console I'd be okay with for a couple reasons: 1. My GamePass Ultimate is paid for which means I already get Halo Infinite, Forza 8, and whatever other launch exclusives they have which saves me money. 2. I don't need to buy extra controllers since all my Xbox One controllers will work with it. Obviously I'd like it at $499, but in this specific case I think I can justify the $599.
I believe 600! The x was 500 and this 4x the power! 600-700 ! Microsoft is going with pricey parts ! Plus Microsoft go push for that payment plan model!
Depends on how powerful it is, and what its features are. I'm more than willing to be convinced to buy a system at that price, but they would have to come out guns blazing to prove its value.
Agreed, but we do live in a universe where Sony did this and Microsoft thought we all needed DRM on our consoles. Mistakes happen. Considering how recent the mistake and backlash was in the Microsoft camp on Xbox One, both in pricing, Kinect bundled, and message, television and digital rights, this console will be priced at $499, as has been rumored for many months now. All that said, assuming no one drops the ball out of the gate, Generation 9 is going to be quite interesting.
Considering that MS will give a lot of options to play their games I think it is ok 600 for the most powerful option.
I agree. I keep expecting MS to target that niche instead of competing with Sony head on. X1X was kinda approaching niche, costing $100 more. Let's them continue to market themselves as the most powerful console at least
Agreed, bundle with Halo Infinite and you have a compelling option here.
They're not going to bundle a game at launch.
How bout 3 months of gamepass?
@Cheif That bundles all their games at launch lol I cant wait to roll into next gen with my already paid for Ultimate sub. Cant beat that price. Honestly it makes the price of $600 easier to swallow since I dont have to buy games or extra controllers at launch since the Xbone controllers work with it also
"In No Possible Universe.. " WTF am l reading? Forbes ohhhh it fine then.
There is a very very high possibility that MS will launch something that will cost 600 and even more and this can be possible from the very first moment they put "Series" on the console name.
True...but then that goes both ways. Could also mean a cheaper series...
I think it's $600 with another $400 weaker sku
Maybe the weaker version we are talking about already exists and it named xbox one x...
Just start saving for it now. Don't wait until the last minute to do that.I'm already saving for the PS5.I'll be getting Xbox Series X too if it's BC natively. If not only PS5 for me.
Microsoft states already its bc three generations back!
SO no need to insert the disc and download to play your old games? We can just play it by inserting the discs?
Don't think either MS or Sony would make the $600 mistake again. It will probably be $499. PS5 likely $449.
I'm expecting the PS5 to be between $400 and 5. Kinda lucked out; I'm a PC guy who didn't go in this gen. Knew I wanted a number of PS4 games, but figured I'd wait until PS5 came out and was able to get the hardware and games I wanted for dirt cheap. Lucked out, and my friend who runs a rent a center told me of a Pro they got back, virtually brand new, and only needed $90 to pay into it. Assuming the PS5 does indeed play PS4 games without a hitch, I'm assuming I can sell the Pro, and put the difference into a PS5.
A powerful new console + gamepass would be a pretty cool solid holiday gift.
Unless it's $399.99, I'm not buying it. But same goes for PS5. IT'S OFF THE SHELF PARTS, NO INNOVATION WHATSOEVER! Why should be pay for off the shelf parts?
Why did you pay for off the shelf parts this gen? As long as they stick with x86 architecture, we'll likely be seeing variants of off the shelf parts. I'm okay with this as developers will have an easier time making use of the power without a new learning curve every generation.
It will be 600 at least but it wont be the only offering they will have a Series S as well at launch.
It will be 549$ :)
Early adopters will look for real world performance difference to make their choice, it's not going to be for moms and pops walking to the store to buy one for their children cause it's a premium product especially at launch.
MS is as arrogant as Apple, without the cool stuff
600 dollars allday!!! You have to pay for power!! Ya pay 1200 for them beat down iPhones!! My opinion 600-700 price tag!!
The Xbox One X clocked it at £450 in the UK. With an elite controller, £600 tops. No idea how it did sales wise, but I'm guessing at £450, it didn't shift millions. Past consoles at £400+ died at launch. The PS4 Pro at £350. Any console costing over £300 is never going to go mass market, end of. The PS3 at £425 at launch also springs to mind. Saturn £400 with Virtua Fighter was a big choker.
So MS is handling their Xbox brand the way Steam SHOULD have handled Steam Box; 2 or 3 consoles, of varying performance and price. I don't think this is a bad option. Consoles always cut corners for mass appeal on cost. Well, here's a $400 box that is fairly up to date, and games will run fine. Here's also a more expensive version that will run them better. Mid to late gen refreshes for later adopters. It really just comes down to will developers make use of this way of doing things?
Well iSheep and Driodsheep think we should pay 999, infact let's go further, let's make it 1999 for a console. Many are stupid enough to pay.
