    The speaker being £250 is so freaking tempting. Glad to see there's no currency conversion BS here, was fully expecting $300 to equal £300 like usual lol

    Being able to get a next-gen Xbox for the same price as a Switch is astounding to me

    The naming is so stupid. It’s like they haven’t learned anything from the Wii/Wii U mistake.

    So is it worth spending in the fridge? Or the speaker should be enough to have good fun? :lol:

    people who buy a Xbox know what a Xbox is.

    alot people who brought a Wii had no idea what a Wii U was.



    in conclusion:-

    Mothers buy Wii.

    kids who wanna bang your mother who brought a Wii buys a Xbox, with they mommas money.

    Ehh hardly. You won’t even find the One X or One S in the store pretty soon. And for the first couple of years any major games are going to be released on both systems

    Fair pricing. Not much of a reason to pick one up now though.

    Profile picture checks out

    But still the amount of traction this could potentially get by simply revealing the cheaper model at launch is seriously giving Microsoft the edge since no one knows the price for the PS5 yet

    Good specs for the price, but no exclusives, so why would I get one?

    That is $650 and $394 respectivelly. Fuck them with their overpricing policies, I will buy it after a year or in the second hand market.

    No reason to get one just yet. Will wait a year for a price drop and a fuller library of games.

    I will be picking a big boy. as my x1 is my main system and I only have a vcr edition.

    Xbox game pass is getting even more value with the inclusion of ea play.
