Again, not saying you are wrong I just think the Series X still provides much more value for the price even if them releasing the Series S overall is a good move. We won't however know how good of a move it was until we get hardware numbers which we probably never will because Microsoft seems keen on focusing only on GamePass numbers.There's simply a large portion of the MASS MARKET that won't purchase a console until it's under $300. That's why Sony is still supporting the PS4 and why $299 is such an important price to hit for every manufacturer. The Switch was a huge success right out the gate because they managed to launch at $299.
The mass market is the goal with every console. Enthusiasts just there to pay the R&D costs due to being early adopters.
