Xbox One November Launch, Will Cost $500



The Xbox One will launch in November for a price tag of $500. There is no news on what that price tag includes, but presumably you'd have to buy another $100 or so in options such as Xbox Live and an extra controller plus a game or two -- making the total launch price of the console up in the $750 range.

What do you guys think about the $500 price point?

UPDATE:
The Xbox One is now available for Pre-Order from http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=operasport-20.

You know I will be buying it. I'm a sucker for this, it could have been $999, still woulda bought it. What this does tell me is that based on a $500 price tag, Xbox 360 price will NOT be dropping.

That's pretty steep. If PS4 is significantly lower that's huge.

I was originally a sony kid, then my first console purchase was the 360 because of its lower price point. I'm already at odds with Xbox One's strategy regarding always-on and used games. If Sony steers clear of that and retails for around $400, I'm in. Otherwise, I'm perfectly content with my 360 for at least another year or two potentially. I just can't justify (or afford) a $700 gaming investment.

I was expecting this. I will be buying one as I have $299 in points saved at a local store here, but I will be going with PS4 more than likely unless the TV thing is way better than cable and allows me to cancel that.

I expect PS4 to have a slightly smaller price point because Xbox One ships with Kinect 2 and the PS4 doesn't really have anything on that level hardware wise to drive cost up. The reason PS3 was so much more than Xbox at launch was blu ray but that cost is now minimal.

Yeah, I am very interested to hear the rest of the Sony launch details. Price might win out for me here since I mostly play sports games with friends and there will be very little difference between consoles.

$499 isn't great but it could be worse. Will still probably be a while for me. PS4, 3ds and even Wii U are in line above an XBOX One for me
