I think Microsoft really dropped the ball with the $499 price tag. It is not 2005, the economy has drastically changed. Alot of people has either lost their job or seen their wages take a major hit. I still plan on buying an Xbox One at some point in
the spring but I highly suspect many will obviously go for the lower cost PS4 simply for the value. Microsoft does have better innovation in my sole opinion, but really the price tag is what is going to turn many people off to it. I can almost guarantee
if Microsoft lowered the price NOW to $399 to genuinely compete with Sony then it wouldn't even be a question, Microsoft would blow Sony out of the water. They obviously have plenty of time to do this but many spokesmen for Microsoft are still standing firm
on the price and their justification for it. So I wouldn't hold my breathe on them ever lowering the cost atleast until maybe mid 2014. This is just an opinion, nothing more, I plan on getting both consoles down the road anyways.
