The Oculus Rift talk is interesting:

How will MS approach pricing if this is real?

It's got to be priced to compete with PSVR, but without massively undercutting the current OR pricing.
By end of 2017 Rift will be much cheaper. We probably have a Rift 2 with roomscale and foveated rendering at that time. And they could even do what they did with Samsung (GearVR) and create an Xbox SKU of their headset.

I would love to see an upgrade path for people who bought the XBO. I don't know if that's even possible from a business standpoint and how you'd manage this, but I hope they offer something so the XBO won't end up the worst console I ever bought.

No actually. According to Digital Foundry at time of ps4's launch. it was not possible to build a pc for the same money as ps4.
1. I said 400-500€
2. DF is in the UK meaning they aren't using €
3. Yes, you could get better hardware for ~400€, i know it cause i did a testbuild back then. The 400-500€ range is there cause i did 2 slightly different configs - one with dead meat (aka blu-ray drive) one without, used a cheap NT and for potentially adding Windows.
