So many armchair corporate business analysts and executives here. Perhaps some of you should write to Microsoft immediately and maybe they will give you a job because clearly you know more than them.
Series S at $299 is an incredible value between price and performance, with next generation console tech. This is a console with mass market approach to quick adoption and it will likely be very successful in the long run.
The Series X at $499 is still a good value for what you’re getting with everything inside, and it’s compact and clean design is well executed and should do very well.
I keep saying this and I will say it again. Video game consoles are for casuals and some hardcore gamers looking for ease of access and playability. If you’re looking for power and specs galore, stick to PC gaming.
With how poorly managed the Xbox division has been since the late 360 era, I would bet that they do.
It would still have to be $299 to make any impact. Otherwise, they would just get the more powerful, exclusive spewing PS5 DE for the same price. They might get away with $349. And it would allow them to keep their 1440p promise.
As for XSX, with how multiplats are going, 16 Tflops may be needed to get that 20% advantage over the PS5 Xbox fans were talking about. But they'd have to price it at $549.
