Introducing the Xbox One SAD Edition
That price is definitely SAD.
Seriously, if you’re going to release a budget console it should be more than $50 cheaper than your next SKU.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but I feel like there have been a bunch of recent sales for the regular One S for $250, sometimes with games bundled in?
You are not wrong.
Definitely should have been $200 then, but I’m not a marketing major.
Also, have a video.
Speak of the devil!
That’s not bright. Releasing a new, bargain console’s price while you are running a sale on the current console at that same price?!?!? I don’t get it.
The reason I care—being the resident Sony fanboy here—is that when this was first rumored, I was thinking I could pick up a nice, cheap XBONE to replace my 360. If the price was cheap enough.
But then I remembered, “Oh yeah. What about all of my X360 discs I have lying around? Do I just throw them away?” So even if the console was super cheap, it would be completely useless for my purpose.
In conclusion, I don’t get this price. Save $50 but lose all of your 360 BC discs.
I wonder if they plan on phasing out the standard S model with the new SAD model.
$15/month Game Pass Ultimate = $180 a year
$60/year Gold + $10/month Game Pass = $180 a year
And you are kind of a sucker for paying full price for gold with all the deals they have throughout the year, so yeah, they have some pretty lame price points over there lately.
What the… ???
I’m not even sure where to put that news. I guess here.
Sony saw Microsofts game streaming tech and jumped on board? Win win for MS no matter how the next gen shakes out.
This isn’t really news, but it’s a good article.
BTW… how would you like to be the guy that teams with Phil Spencer every week to run strikes in Destiny?
