E3 2017: Xbox Exec Talks Xbox One X’s More Expensive Price Point

The Xbox One X is priced at $500 in the US, which is a full $100 more than the console it will likely get most frequently compared to, PlayStation 4 Pro. The Xbox One was $100 more expensive than the PS4 when those systems launched in 2013, and that did not end up turning out very well for Microsoft. Is history going to repeat itself?

Speaking to GameSpot today at E3, Microsoft’s Dave McCarthy told us that Xbox One X stands alone when it comes to power and value. He added that PC, not PS4 Pro, is a better comparison to Xbox One X, and Microsoft’s console represents a strong value when looking at it this way, he said.

“As far as I’m aware, there is nothing that offers the combination of power and performance at the price that we’re doing right now [with Xbox One X],” he said. “If I were to make a comparison on the capabilities with the 6 teraflops and the extra RAM we have in the machine, the true 4K gaming, I would make more of a comparison to the PC space in terms of capability. And at that price point, I think it’s a wonderful premium device in terms of those capabilities.

“Comparison wise, I don’t think that combination of price, performance, and form factor is rivalled in the market at all.”

Our conversation with McCarthy covered a number of other Xbox topics. Keep checking back with GameSpot soon for more.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
