[Xtralife]Xbox ONE preorder price & release date. - Page 8

post #71 of 94
Come on guys, this is cleary not the final price. Amazon works that way, if the console cost 100$, they will charge you 100$. It's just a precaution thats all. And a console is wayy more attractive for normal folks, not people like us. Think of people who just want to play game casually, or for a family. They dont care about textures, 30/60hz, AA resolution etc... they just want to play

It's actually fairly likely to be the final EU price.

I sure hope the Xbox One does turn out to be $750. The less people who buy it the better. I'd prefer people to stick to the X360 which actually has an Indie market. If the Xbox One becomes popular creativity will be stifled because the market will be all AAA titles. The majority of those being status quo rehashes.

Before you ask me if I have anything riding on this - yes I do. The more people who stick to X360 the bigger my potential market will be.

this is true but it doesn't represent the full picture of gaming as we know now. True gamers lurk on every platform and play every type of game so there is no general demographic for a 'gamer' + in recent years the PC has made an amazing comeback and mobile / tablet and even facebook or web based gaming is fairly large also.

yes casuals choose consoles, but then try define a true casual? a nintendo wii ? thats what a true casual bought round my way, the 360 was ok for COD games and some large releases and PS3 for some classics and exclusives (just like we all wish the wii u had right now)

so, yea its easier to turn on a console but then also consider for those total tech noobs how hard it is to understand installing a game and setting up profiles, groups and understanding the constant PS3 / xbox updates or new looking dash layouts, or even how to connect their wireless and that their harddrive is full or there is a strict NAT at play or DNLA error, RROD etc.. its not all plain sailing with these consoles and there only going to get more complicated with kinect calibration and logging into apps, where by a off the shelf gaming pc with steam installed is equally plug and play perhaps in front now?

no what consoles do have is marketing impact, they are far more in the average joe's / janes conscious than a PC gaming rig.. and personally speaking im ok to keep it that way the console as a platform is already getting trashed to pieces

You and I know Xtralife is probably spot on, at least in the console and games pricing in Spain. biggrin.gif

The companies are going to bash their heads against a wall for the poor sales. Weaker console@600€. Games@70€. Direct conversion, as always, if not more cause a "Yo lo valgo" mentality towards the EU. Meanwhile, an horrible, dumbass created crisis is ravaging through all of Europe. And they expect this consoles to sell like hot cakes. lachen.gif

Couple it with half decent wireless keyboard / mouse / controller and it will pull Wii on that Xbox.
For example:
Mobo 50$ - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813135323
CPU 65$ - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116886
RAM 2x 4 GB 60$ - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820814006
500 GB HDD - 55$ - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822149380
Case+PSU - 65$ - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811133093
GFX 180$ - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161406 (has 3 games coming with it atm)
+ keyboard, mouse, controller and optical drive if you really need to. Might be nice to throw also some USB wifi module into mix or use instead mobo with wifi capability.

Altogehter when ordering from newegg would cost ~475 but I'm sure that if someone would be making that thing in any significant volume he would be able to get a bulk deal to save some money and still do reasonable enough profit on that thing.

That thing could, in essence, be as simple as consoles are. Its some custom Linux distro with Steam big picture mode on top of it so unless you want to you do not need to config anything. Just plug and play. The stats are comparable to XBox One - well at least in that ballpark, probably a bit weaker CPU slightly stronger GPU and ofc, no HSA just the old fashioned CPU + discrete GFX combo.

good build smile.gif but the case would probably cost them $10 per item in a 100,00k bulk order so thats a saving. and it would probably be a wee bit faster than current consoles + have all the desired extra pc functionality for perhaps $450 which is very reasonable.

personally i expect the steam box to be tiny and fairly weak for an introduction to pc / steam gaming but im holding out hope that they at least spec it enough to play newer games on 'high' @ 1080p 60fps

I just came across this on Amazon uk : http://www.amazon.co.uk/Microsoft-Xbox-One-Console/dp/B00BE4OUBG/ref=sr_tr_sr_1?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1369918863&sr=1-1&keywords=xbox+pre+orders

Made me laugh that the "Frequently bought together" pack was with a Wii U game XD

The desciption of the console got afew head shake moments from my GF, especially the voice controls and the Social media jargon made up for the kiddies.

This, isn't, going, to, sell. All that well in the UK I don't think. £600 for a console that is alittle more than what my tablet or smart phone does is alittle OTT Especially with the LIVE costs and my ISP bill ontop of it too.

OH! best of all: http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dvideogames&field-keywords=xbox+one+games

£90 !!!! for 6 hours of COD single player .... !??!?!

< Yes, I realise this isn't the final price but a placeholder, but isn't it going to around this ? >
post #80 of 94
Remember €600 = $600.

I'm starting to suspect M$ have a big insurance policy to cash in if the Xbox one tanks.
