    I think ~500 is where they need to be with The One.... Although I can't help but feel it will more than that when you consider the Kinect.

    Anyhow, it's going to be fun watching MS' E3 press event on June 10 @ 1PM EDT (12PM for me, so I can watch on my lunch break).
    Thought E3 was June 11-13th, Where did you get the date of the 10th @ 1PM ?

    Lunch break or not, I will be watching it at my desk at work. I have dual monitors at my desk so I can work on one and watch on the other :)

    If it's at 1pm EDT, I will just delay my lunch a little...


    The liver is evil and must be punished

    Love it !!! :)

    Hmmm, a couple of sites have different times listed, but bellow is a link to IGN which has an announcement that says please arrive by 8:45am PST...

    In any event, MS, EA, Ubisoft and Sony all have conferences on June 10.

    Hmh, you are probably right...

    How about just for new customers! Inb4 the ****storm from old users :D
    There won't be a ****storm from old users, because most of us are already willing to buy the console outright and avoid the higher cost of Live service through the subsidy contract.

    Looks like I might be "sick" on June 10 ;)

    I have to watch the Sony conference just to see some Destiny gameplay.

    I think $500 is a fair price. Mind you, i still think the device should have a 1TB HDD instead of 500GB...im hoping they opt for universal expandable storage. Nah, that wont happen.

    Actually, already confirmed! USB 3.0 + Windows Kernel = Compatibility with external hard drives. You can expand your storage however you want, even with an external SSD instead of HDD. :)

    Just because it's theoretically possible, doesn't mean they will implement it 100%... Have they confirmed what if anything u could use an external drive for? Games, game saves, music/pictures, DVR, etc...

    I'm leaning towards it only being usable for pictures and music... Maybe DVR if we are lucky, but probably not for games... A 500GB limit for games could be one way to prevent piracy... You can only have x games installed at a time, so you'll need to keep the disc to reinstall if other games push it out of the installed queue.

    Confirmed officially from Microsoft that it can be used for almost anything. I know they specifically said it could be used for games.

    I also believe that I heard it confirmed that an external hard drive could be used for anything the consumer uses the internal hard drive for.

    I don't recall where though.

    If they are released the same time I think they should price at least $50 under sony no matter what both systems have. BUT the console market took a big dive with the surge of the mobile market... even nintendo is struggling to sell units since they launched the wii u.


    after 15% sales tax my 20gb pro and COD2 at launch came to $650

    If it's $499.99 with no other cheaper option, I can guarantee that it will not sell in huge numbers. Msft is no Apple and XBox One doesn't have any game changing
    technology for non-gamers.(Voice and gesture integration with cable tv doesn't justify an average customer to spend $500 for such a huge box on top of Xbox live fees)

    I am sure though that there will be cheaper options.

    I know for a fact that plenty of Apple customers will pay $499 for this IF the Kinect is as good as the hype machine is saying it is.

    If it's priced on par with the PS4, I'd think it would sell as well or better than the PS4 due to the added TV functionality and Kinect... I don't foresee a noticeable difference in graphics between the 2, each has pros and cons over the other.

    It most likely will come down to software and useablity, especially with families and living rooms. Hardware is pretty much the same, and that's where it most likely stay like that in this and the next generation(if consoles don't die off). I think if the next Xbox comes bundled with the improved Kinect at $499, Microsoft would pose a serious threat to Sony in the next-gen era.

    MS has positioned the device as an entertainment system that encompasses more than just games, so MAYBE if consoles start to die off, it will still have a life of it's own.

    $499? I'll jump on this on Black Friday. For sure, at least $100 less off retail.

    I don't shop on Black Friday because lines and traffic are horrid... If it's a really good deal, by the time you get to it, it's sold out. Kind of a bait and switch.

    Unfortunately I don't have the patience to wait until black Friday if its release is much earlier than that.

    Yup, wife has agreed to run to the store and preorder as soon as preordering starts... I'm not patient enough to wait for a sale either... Fortunately, my wife is a techie too, so she's just as anxious as me... I actually had to talk her out of getting a GOW special edition 360 and she was upset with me for a couple of days. I did get the retro Lancer though :D LOL, Here is a post I made from back when I was still using a Pre2... http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...ml#post1566664

    So, if the price is confirmed, then has Nov. 30 been confirmed as the launch day?

    There hasn't been a confirmation of price or release date.

    It might be $699 for all we know; though I doubt it.
