A lot of people will be buying it because it's cheaper. Not many people are buying it because of the games. Most people that I have heard are going to play "Watch Dogs".
That kind of tells you how bad things are for the quality of the launch for the PS4.
Anyway, I don't really think that matters much in the long run.
The Xbox One is going to sell out for Christmas and everyone hasn't seen the marketing for Xbox One. "IF" the marketing plan is clever and Microsoft spends the money
to market this thing (we don't know the marketing number yet), then I really think this thing is going to sell like crazy for Christmas.
There are a few games that are going to be higher quality than some people want to admit.
There are people that are not going to be able to resist the hype and there are others that like I said are going to buy this thing because of what it can do.
There are a lot of "Joe six pack" consumers out there that have never seen this magic before and it can be a game changer.
Now, next year is a different story. Microsoft needs to come up with something to keep it price competitive or risk losing market share.
What I recommend that they do is start subsidizing with a model like a cellular phone. Pay a lower up front cost to take on a gradual cost over time.
Most people here have a smartphone so they get the pricing model.....
X Amount of money for X amount of years of Xbox Live Gold.
