That would mitigate a price cut to $400. PS5 won't go over $500, and Xbox won't go over PS5.
Good for people who want GP, I guess. I'd rather have the lower price than pay for something that isn't of any use for me.

Nah, it should be a matching price point and then free GPU can be a bundle/sweetener deal. People will first look at the price and then the perks.
Sorry, I wasn't clear. I've been expecting PS5 at $500, and XSX to go lower. What if XSX matches and then has a year.
Microsoft wants everyone on GPU, because that's where the money is. They're going to want people hooked at launch.
Tbh I'm expecting them to be lower than PS5 with GPU but maybe 3 months or something. And I'll be shocked if the PS5 stays below 500
I’m sure it’s almost guaranteed that they’ll bundle GPU with the console.
Parents buying consoles for Christmas for their kids only look at dollars. It would smart to set the price at $400-$450 and include a GPU trial instead of adding $100.
Yeah, I think they're going to try to undercut Sony. Probably $400 for the top model. GPU is going to be where they make it up.
Firmly in the rumour mill. https://www.t3.com/news/ps5-price-leak-blunder-gives-fans-th...
Pretty much as expected, right?

I'm still thinking Xbox will try to undercut with 450 or 400 price tag.
I'm thinking that too. Also, taking out the opticsl drive saves $100?
4K Blu ray drives are pricey tbf. Wouldn't have thought $100 but still.
It's hard to know for sure. It's very likely that Sony/MS knows the distribution of digital vs physical games that each person is buying. If a person buys physical used
then Sony/MS isn't seeing any money from that. Entirely possible that taking out the drive only saves $50, but they know on average they make WAY more than that back
from people who are buying digitally.
PS5 users can keep Spider-Man. xCloud is so much of a better exclusive.
It's strange that playstation users seem to think not being able to play their games on multiple platforms is a win.

It is a win if the games end up looking like Halo Infinite ... Xbox is banking off of services rather than actual games, which is interesting but not exactly what
appeals to me. I can't stand game streaming, they always have some amount of lag.
I agree, they better sort this out.
When I played Gears 5, it was impressively seamless. I was shocked. I think it depends on the connection.
I've always associated quick completion games with low quality. I was shocked to see the rating for this one.
I liked it. There are some good short ones. Sagebrush was surprisingly deep for a game I finished in an hour.

Guard Duty is legit my Game of the Year so far, and I don't see that changing
Oops, didn't finish that one. I must have gotten distracted. I'll get back to that.
It's such a fantastic story about friendship and courage. It's also isn't mean spirited towards the hero like so many of these games tend to be
Fuck having that piece of excrement integrated into xbox

I don't like tik tok but my kids do. It's non issue if it does get integrated as we dont have to use it right?
Does this mean the Kinect is going to become mandatory so they can SUPER spy on us now?
It already was mandatory. They just changed the rule.
Damn, it better not happen, I never used TikTok and never plan on doing so no bap
Just because it's there doesn't mean we have to use it. The whole US-China dynamic about this strange, though.
I'd rather MS buy it than Facebook.
Is it good, or just a GS grab?
It's probably good... but yeah, VNs are usually GS grabs. I really should read what I'm skipping sometime.
This is one of the deepest VNs I've ever seen. Stat Raising Mode turns this into a full retail game with like 30 hours plus of game play
I completely rescind my earlier statement about the price now that I'm actually playing it on an an alt
Steins Gate had a lot of stuff relating to phone calls and such. It was pretty involved. I haven't finished it yet.
I really need to track down a JP 360. I would love to play that game, the anime is one of my favorites
It's backwards compatible. You just need the disc and your X1.
If it's the same one I played on PC, that is very involved. And head-twisting. One of the best VN stories I've read.
For real?!? I never stopped for a second to consider any of the fabled 360 JP games would be BC
Yep, those are. A few others, I think.
