AKA no one will use it for their games anymore, unless it's a game like Just Dance. (or MS enforces it in some stupid policy like their old timed exclusive thing) It's neat that it's the same price as the PS4 now though.
Oh, the desperation. I wonder if they realize the price point is only one point of the larger problem of why the Xbox One isn't and won't be selling well in any market outside of the US.
Nice. I may consider purchasing one in the future now. Project: Spark and Sundrive Overdrive look kinda cool.
Oh please, it may be an act to help secure more sales but it's by no means desperation. They still sold 5 million consoles in less then A year and the year isn't over yet. This could be a defining factor that helps many people make the leap to purchase an Xbox One that are either
Uncomfortable with the Kinect (seeing as how people continue to believe its a spybox)
Have no interest in its use
Or don't want the gimmick.
This may not be enough to give them a jump on Sony, HOWEVER they'll now be on equal footing price wise. This will make the competition A lot more interesting now.
The UK has been XBoxlandia for quite some time now, this gives them a chance there. We'll see how this affects the system's momentum in due time, for now it's doing relatively well, having in mind the fact that it's not out worldwide yet.
Good riddance, the thing's an utter piece of garbage anyway. Sorry Microsoft, it was a piece of shit.
Hey, they actually listened. Good call, MS. Good call.
Have to admit it looks like a much better deal but I think I will wait for the inevitable XboxOneSlim before I get one (if it gets some must have exclusives too).
Considering the size of thing now I may even wait for the Xbone Super Slim!
Amazing the difference a hundred bux makes.
Glad to see that Microsoft finally excised the tumurous mass. I can't really see myself buying an Xbox One, at least not for a long while, but at least now it's a much more attractive offer.
They probably should've cut the price another $50 or so if they really want to compete with the PS4, but, well, we'll see how this turns out.
Neat, from what I've heard from a lot of other people this was exactly what Microsoft needed to do until they were going to buy one.
That's a retarded statement that I keep hearing, can you stop? You don't realize how batshit insane you sound.
I have a feeling it's going to be like the 360 and Kinect again. Consumers will buy the Kinect-less version, developers have no motivation to include features that use the Kinect and will release games that will either make light use of the Kinect or no use at all.
Sony better drop some bombs at E3 now.
There, I fixed what I said. A piece of shit polished in gold is still a turd
I love your RLM gifs. Top quality stuff.
Maybe I should have mentioned that it seemed more desperate due to the fact that they've also confirmed that they're altering the Gold paywall to make it so a number of things aren't locked behind it. Considering Microsoft has only faithfully shoved more and more things behind the paywall since the 360 launched, this kind of change clearly doesn't come lightly. The fact that they bundled in "and heeeeyyyy guys, want the Xbox One for $100 less? No need for that pesky Kinect then," just makes it all the more suspicious that this isn't simply a good move, but a desperate push.
They know the One isn't on the road to being a good seller, with sales remaining fairly slow since the momentum from Titanfall slowed down, and they're already pulling out just about all of the stops that they can to make the system seem more attractive. I mean, listening to the consumer? If Microsoft had just done that pre-Xbox One release, the thing would probably be on par with at least Wii U sales at this point. I'm not going to look at a move that should have been done from the beginning and smile and say "good on you, Microsoft, you're finally listening instead of sucking", nor will I look on this move that totally destroys what was supposed to be a major selling point of the One without suspicion.
I will give them kudos for attacking them of their biggest weak points before there was irreparable damage, at least. I also can't blame them for not wanting to end up with something that goes almost completely stagnant within the first eight months like the Wii U did.
No thanks. Its ugly design. PS4 is better.
B-b-but Foxi I'm narcissistic enough to think the NSA cares that Sally Jenkins touched my peepee in the third grade
@Therandomizer, please explain to use how the XBone is "shit" at all? It's been out approximately half a year and sold 5mil, that's hardly "shit" to me
Any news on what the price though will mean elsewhere out of the US? I still think it will be priced higher in the UK than the PS4. A $100 price cut wont be a £100 price cut in the UK to bring it on a par with the PS4.
It makes you wonder tough. I mean, all MS have spewed out since the Xbox One release is how integral Kinect is to the new console and under no circumstances would they consider selling the system without one. You have to think that whilst on paper, these constant U-turns look good, its probably doing them more harm than good. As all the early adopters now know that kinect will gather dust as whats been rightly pointed out, is that people will surely now only buy the kinect-less version.
He meant the kinect... I assume.
