After Hot Chips Deep Dive How likely do you think a 599.99 Xbox Series X price point is? Vote and Discuss in the comments below!
Going for more then 599$ would be a suicide for both companies. So for me, 599$ is just maximum amount of money Microsoft can ask from customers, same for Sony.
But i still think they will match price of competitor.
Dude I thought maybe my reading comprehension needs work haha.wtf are you trying to say. my head hurts trying to read that.
yup i think they waiting to see who goes first then the other will undercut... as i said above (see below)Dude I thought maybe my reading comprehension needs work haha.
I think there is some merit to people talking about Sony and M$ waiting for the other to reveal price then undercut. For that reason, i don't think it will be $599. $499 is probable i think.
i think they'd hope to sell it at $599 but could cut it down to $499-549 depending on how much the PS5 costs.
$599 has been my guess for a while, hence the need for the XSS, which I expect them to price very aggressively low.
PS5 Digital: $399
PS5 Disc: $499
and that's why it won't happen.If 599$, it's DOA, unless Sony prices itself at 599 / 499 for DE.
This would be the death of the Xbox brand.

XSX will be cheaper than PS5. that's my gut feeling.
XSX Digital (if we get one) - $400-450
PS5 Digital: $450
PS5 Disc: $550
can't see PS5 being $600 but XSX could. MS won't want Xbox to cost more than PS5 so will probably match PS5 or beat it by $50.
sorry not my primary language it's probably not the first time and it won't be the last.
I mean it's been circling the drain for a while.If 599$, it's DOA, unless Sony prices itself at 599 / 499 for DE.

It's also why I think they and sony are playing chicken with the price announcements, as well as keeping XSS under their hats.
If Sony comes out with a $599/$699 price tag for the PS5's, I think the XSS will never see the light of day and MS will instead eat the cost of undercutting Sony with a $549 XSX, or even just stick a year of Gamepass in at $599.
If the PS5's are as aggressively priced as I think they will be though, then the XSS is getting priced ridiculously low, just to have the news headlines.
Je suis désolé pour ce que j'ai dit. C'était impoli de ma part de supposer que l'anglais était votre première langue. Mes excuses. J'aimerais pouvoir parler français. Je dois utiliser Google Translate pour ce faire.
PS5 Digital $399
Series S $299
Nobody really knows what these things cost to make, people throw estimates around without knowing what kind of deals the companies have in place etc.
or just people being realistic with the market prices on hardware and paying attention of past consoles price,microsoft its not a ongI think the $599 Xbox Series X talk is just more fear mongering from some people who are irrationally afraid of MS having the most powerful console and possibly a lower price than the competition.

“I would say a learning from the Xbox One generation is we will not be out of position on power or price,” says Phil Spencer, Microsoft’s Xbox and gaming chief, in an interview with The Verge. “If you remember the beginning of this generation we were a hundred dollars more expensive and yes, we were less powerful. And we started Project Scarlett with this leadership team in place with a goal of having market success.”
Phil has said publicly that he has MS's blessing to be aggressive on price. "Aggressive" in the context of being competitive. $599 USD doesn't seem ultra competitive to me - tho certainly an argument can be made you are getting a lot of performance for even that price.
I think they'll do $499 and value add in some game pass. $549 I think at most. Still, they need to be cheaper than Sony if they want to have any hope at making up ground on Sony -- I know I know, blah blah MS says they don't care about how many consoles they sell (the do, tho).
i saw you using this article here to sustain that argument,good luck with that,that article wont age well,and its nothing to do with your fantasies of plastic boxes and people terrified of them
It's funny to quote Phil these days, don't do it or you setup yourself for more disappointment.
