Introducing the Xbox One SAD Edition


#182

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.


#183

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?


#184

You are not wrong.


#185

Definitely should have been $200 then, but I’m not a marketing major.

Also, have a video.


#186

Speak of the devil!


#187

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

VS

$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.
