I asume that like vanilla PS4, this one will (still) be offered as the cheap entry solution into XBOX eco-system. So if the price is okay, it doesn't matter if you buy it now or 12 months later (apart from inevitable price drops).
That said, if you already own an XBOX One and if you don't own a 4k TV, it's absolutely pointless to upgrade. Unless you don't know what to do with all your money.
exactly. the forum is too childish or funky and definitely un appealing and does not work well on mobile. But the problem is all the numbers and important tidbits are there. So one has to go.. its like PS2 was all sort of weird architecture.. but it had games so people bought it..
I think Mods need to allow Aquamarine to come back.. She definitely has lot of information and do have a very good insight of the industry and will provide valuable contribution on this forum.
Xbox One S at $299.99 for the base model sounds good enough. Very curious to see how the US market will react; currently, I don't know what to expect, considering how low sales were in both April and May (yeah, April sales were quite low when you consider the QB bundle, the temporary price cut, etc.etc.).
Ugh, I know that thread was dumb to begin with and the fact that Statham made it makes it questionable anyway, but Rex really shouldn't be losing his temper over such petty things. It's not worth it. GAF (to be fair, the whole Internet) is full of hyperbole and bullshit and we should just learn to ignore.
Slim models always improve sales, whether it was the PS2 slim, PS3 slim, 360 S, or any handheld revision, sales always go up. If all models actually do have 4K media support and there is a $299 model, sales will really pick up.
Eh, 2014 had Titanfall and was still just after launch, and 2015 had a price cut for the entire period. 2016 had another price cut for 6 weeks, and then it went back up. All things considered, 2016 is still a good year for sales YTD, it's just smaller than 2014 and 2015
January - May 2014: 904,000
January - May 2014: 982,000
January - May 2014: 897,000
Those are all very close to each other, and the slim is going to come out, with hopefully a $299 model. Sales will improve.
An X1S at $199 would be a 'needle mover' on sales.
An X1S offering a slightly smaller box and 4K media playback versus an X1fatty with a bundle of games on firesale clearance at the same price... I honestly don't see it.
