This is going to have trouble escaping the meme that it’s less powerful than XBox One X - even if it’s not true.
plenty in here have the same hunch. but i'll humor you: you're nuts if you think sony is going to price a cent above microsoft's most expensive model, which means the digital ps5 should be somewhere between 399-449. i said 399 because of the ps4 launch price and how successful that was for them.nice! Now do the definition for “confirmed”
And explain the correlation between this news and the pricing for PS5 and PS5DE
We finally have the Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S pricing, and it's about what you might have expected.www.windowscentral.com
It would be ok for 199 Dollars. For 299, just pay 100 bucks more and get the Ps5, which is far more powerfull and has Sony exclusives. Series S is a steaming pile of crap.Both consoles seem like a great value proposition. People underestimate the S, the thing is a little beast, especially for $299.
If people regard Tflops as the most important thing, well, those people will buy Series X, won't they?This is going to have trouble escaping the meme that it’s less powerful than XBox One X - even if it’s not true. The Tflops. You make them the most important thing. People are going to regard it as the most important thing.
You said Series S is DOA if Series X and PS5 are $499. I don't see how that makes sense. If anything Series S will b selling extremely well because of it's smaller price. The majority of gamers aren't hardcore gamers looking for the best graphics. Mom and pops are going to buy the $299 Series S over the $499 one.
Yep. And with Ultimate you of course get Gold/GwG, Game Pass PC, and xCloud. That's an undeniably affordable and versatile package. Hopefully this SoC is cheap and easy to make so there can be a shitload of consoles available.I just looked at Xbox Ultimate pricing, you can get it for less than 10 bucks a month. So $299 flat and $10 a month gets you a potent console and dozens of good games. Pretty good value proposition.
For current-gen games the X1X and XSS are about even for GPU(~RX 580), but for next-gen the XSS has RDNA 2 feature set so RT, VRS, etc. Additionally, the XSS has essentially the same Zen 2 CPU as the XSX and PS5 along with a high-speed SSD. With a 1080p target resolution the XSS is going to perform much better while the X1X Jag bottlenecks. I'm curious to see how they'll approach BC. Will the XSS be profiled to play RDR 2 in 4K like X1X?So which one is the stronger console ? The xbox one x or the xbox series s ?
So whos this for?
New Xbox fans?
Xbox 1 X owners?
Games on launch?
Only people who are getting excited and will buy it are current Xbox fans, doubt it will change much
Nadella isnt beholden to Spencer lol, especially when MS is still losing a lot of money on GamePass. At some point they will need to start selling it at its 'proper' price (if not even higher). Just giving it away on long-term deals, then hoping people stay when the price bumps up isn't a good strategy. Especially when selling hardware at a big loss.Sony will go broke in 2 years at that price. Microsoft will push these boxes with GamePass subs. Phil has Satya Nadella by the short hairs. Satya will write a check for anything that gets him that sweet ARR.
