Microsoft Shits the Bed: $499 Xbox One. Oh, and Halo

Xbox One Price is Ready to Pounce on your Pocketbook

Microsoft announced Xbox One’s new Halo game, but bizarrely, it doesn’t say anything about being Halo 5, just “Halo.” What does that mean? Who knows. Apparently it involves a desert and a big, dusty robot spaceship thingy.  We’ll see if this is a new Halo, an old Halo, or something in between.  But then, the big news, the Xbox One price…

The bad news, though, is that immediately following the announcement, they unveiled the Xbox One‘s price: $499 in the US, 429 Pounds in the UK, 499 Euros in…Europe other than the UK, I guess. I guess that cinches it: Xbox One can look forward to poor sales to compliment its poor critical reception.  Cuz at that price, it’s just too high compared to an Xbox 360 or a PS4.  Even a wii U is looking like a better deal right now.  However, if you’ve been desperate for the next gen console from Microsoft, might as well start saving your pennies.
