Full retail price of XSS + 24 months of GPU is $299 + $360 / The 24/mo option at $25 is only $600 ($59 cheaper).
Full retail price of XSX + 24 months of GPU is $499 + $360 / The 24/mo option at $35 is only $840 ($19 cheaper).
It's a rare day when you can finance something for 24 months and save money. Great offer! (I assume MS takes a hit on GPU in order to hide the finance companies interest).
Why are doing the exact same calculation ?
Like I said
Serie S $25 per month Xbox All Access financing option (24x25-300) = 300$ for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate $60 OFF
Serie X $35 per month Xbox All Access financing option (24x35-500) = 340$ for Xbox Game Pass Ultimate $20 OFF
My point is why that Gamepass part of the financing is more expensive on XSX?
Hell i hope that ubisoft thing was false. I mean come on, we have proper Ps1 and 2 emulation, just as it to the dam consoleOh that I expected. I was talking about Ps2/3 emulation which is out the window so I'm just going to roll with all digital because since COVID started getting games in my area introduced how convenient DD is for me.
Alternative theory: This is a planned leak to lure Sony and Microsoft can even go lower.Alternative theory: Microsoft waited till they get wind of Sony’s pricing, and now they have it. This is Microsofts reaction to the PS5 - PS5DE at $499 with the disc version for $599.
I bet both Sony and MS already had their own pricing set since while ago and weren't able to change it. I bet PS5 price will be $499 for the normal and $449 for the PS5DE.Very good point, if Sony had gone $599 and they went $499 too early they would have left money on the table. I think you're 100% correct.
Sony was doing 399.99 no matter what. This generation showed people are willing to pay more the ps4 has yet to hit the old magic 199.99. Thing is crazy expensive for a 7 year old console 299.99 msrp. Sony could price 100 dollars more and still get 70% market share.
The only problem with your take on that is that even at USD$599 the PS3 outsold the 360 when it released. The "Great PS3 Turnaround" never actually happened, it came out and outsold the 360 from day 1, and continued to catch it every year after.That attitude is part of what led to the unmitigated disaster that was the PS3 launch (which they turned around by lowering the price).

The USA is not the world.

Please stop using VGChartz lol. It's bullshit.
All Access incl. Gamepass@$180
XSX@$35 per month, 24 payments in total = $840 - $180 = $660 for the console. If the retail price is $399, that´s an +65% increase.
If the retail price is $499, that´s an +32% increase.
Where did you even get the Scorn being a launch title bullshit? They have always said its a "launch window game"(2021) and refused to give a proper date.
If it has all the third party support at a cheaper price, this shouldn't matter, right? PS2 already proved this 2005 and beyond.
I don't know what 'worst position' means. Xbox One is already more popular/sold more consoles than other consoles in the past (Sega Genesis, Nintendo 64, Gamecube, likely Super Nintendo, etc).
If Xbox's position is at it's worst in 2019, not sure how much better it would be in 2020.
It was objectively cheaper than the One S disc version and would have been cheaper than the retail Series S, but going off your previous post:
You just made an argument to buy a PS4 which aims for 1080p and will play almost all of the third party games the Series S will have for the first two years (at the same or cheaper price)
At this point I'm just ecstatic it's not $599+
I paid $500 for the base Xbox One so I cannot really complain about the value of a $500 Series X.
Just put up the damn pre-orders already
No it won’t. The xbox one has frequently been cheaper than the PS4 and they didn’t steamroll shit.I fear this could be game over for the competition if $299 and $499 are real price points for next gen xbox. Microsoft is going to steam roll over the competition.
when you include the international sales the two were essentially neck and neck. And when you consider that the xbox brand was next to non-existent outside of the americas and the UK, I would have to say the 360 sold pretty damn good.The USA is not the world.
Having said that, that shows that there was no great turnaround like I said as well.
