$499 Is A Dangerous Price For Microsoft's Xbox One

Forbes: Microsoft dropped a bombshell at its Xbox One press conference today. It came on all of a sudden, without a big flashing number or display. It hung in the air just the same. The Xbox One will retail at $499 when it releases in November, and that could prove a very dangerous price for Microsoft’s new console.

The story is too old to be commented.

By far the biggest drawback beyond price is the fact Microsoft is completely eliminating game sharing. I don’t want to have to pay a “small fee” to register a buddys game on my Xbox live account. WTF? No more big groups playing FIFA, NHL or other sport games.

If you think about it, you would expect Ps4 to cost $499 and xbOne would cost 399 because of the DRM and always online because now they can make a secure revenue. This shows how greedy Microsoft is. I haven't bought anything to do with Microsoft product in years! Except windows 8 for $40 because vista is one of the worse OS and Skype barely!
