    Good news for console owners that want the best of both worlds—Less than six months after its initial $499 console release of the Xbox One, Microsoft has announced a new $399 version of the system, without the Kinect 2.0. This brings the device down to exactly the same price as the PlayStation 4.

    Phil Spencer (Head of Xbox) insists this new purchase option (launching June 9th, 2014) is "all about choices" for Xbox fans and says that feedback from consumers influenced them to offer up the basic Xbox One unit, and to release a standalone Kinect 2.0 camera/sensor this Fall.



    Putting Xbox One on a more competitively priced playing level with PlayStation 4 may be Microsoft's best weapon yet in the fight for consumer dollars in the console war. What do you think of this announcement?

    I think that was the last complaint/customer reevaluation that was left. This is why its important to have competition in the market place for all products. Companies will change if consumers speak with there voices and wallets. But if companies don't feel the heat from competitors, they never strive to improve.

    I'm just glad Netflix won't be behind a pay-wall anymore. That was ridiculous.
    Boric and Trickman like this.

    Took them long enough. Next they need to kill that launch parity clause for indies and get them pees up. Competition is great for us end users, it makes those fat cats work harder to gain our favor :3

    It should have been like this in the first place, but at least now they're taking action on issues that they've been having. Consumers win.
