Xbox One to be Priced at $399? PS4 at $349?June 6, 2013 1 Comment
No one knows yet how much the yet to be released Xbox One is going to cost at launch. Microsoft themselves probably are still tossing up the numbers as seeing what is plausible.
Michael Pachter, Wedbush Securities analyst however thinks he has a hold of how much the new systems are going to cost. He is predicting that Microsoft’s Xbox One will start at $399, while Sony’s Playstation 4 will go for $349. He is also estimating that it will cost Microsoft $325 to make an Xbox One with the attached Kinect while it will cost Sony $275.
With Sony failing with the PS3′s initial high price, I can see them trying to undercut Microsoft’s price. Hopefully, the Xbox One will have too many bells and whistles for consumers to ignore. That or Microsoft plays hardball and puts the new system at a low price as well.
