We already know it's significantly more powerful than the Pro.Better be a powerful ass console for that price. If its just another 4K machine like the Pro, they shot themselves in the foot.
That's what I'm saying. The price is not even the biggest hurdle of this thing. Remember, people were more skeptical on what GAMES Xbox would have...the price was always the second thing. If Microsoft has games, the price won't matter. Having that premium game experience is what they are pushing for and the system has all the bells and whistles to do so, including its media capabilities. They are going to sell the hell out of $499, because they can.
Well it's not like he has leaked images of the hardware itself, it's just the price. I'm sure people who worked on the hardware have little do with the pricing strategy.You know people worked hard on the hardware and are equally entitled to their moment? Weird logic.
Jesus, I shouldn't be surprised given the visionless leadership of Spencer, but this is reaching levels of absurdity I haven't seen before.
How the hell can he act so excited for this shit online when he knows he's going to be fleecing the customer so hard. It's beyond disgusting. It's downright insane.
That is exactly why I believe him. I don't think he would come in here and tweet that if this is some stunt.Probably can't wait to be proven right if he's seen some of the reactions. I'd be the smuggest fucker on the planet if I could make this many people eat crow.
Will feel for him if wrong though, will probably never hear the end of it.

Xbox One sales hit a brick wall from the very start. After they lost March of 2014 ["Have you seen Titanfall?"] against Second Son, the pricedrop was inevitable. It arrived on June 2014 when they offered Kinect-less Xbox One for $399.

The real question is if that power will matter in the end. The major games on this thing are still tied to the XBox ONE - thus, there's a limitation on what that power can be used for.
Seeing too many of these "definitely $399 now" responses makes me realize that being a part of this community doesn't mean the average dedicated gamer is informed or that smart about their hobby.
This is Geoff and the way he manages his relationships with those in the gaming industry is very precise.
MS asked him to announce this hypekiller in advance. Geoff hedged his wording in case MS got cold feet over the negative reaction.
You really should pay attention to how he talks to people in the industry. The only time he ever put anyone on full blast was Konami because it was extremely safe to do so.
This guy will never step out of line in order to maintain his industry connections.
