I’m confident in what the Seriex X provides. I’m ok with $599 but do hope for $499. There has been no official info on Series S, so I hesitate to put a limit or dollar amount on it.
However, I game in short spurts when family time and responsibilities allow so I appreciate the fast jump in/jump out of a console over my PC; especially the possibilities of quick resume! So the Series X is my only interest (4k OLED set with 7.2.1 Atmos/THX surround). However, I’m on the fence if I’ll get my kid the S or X.
You’re absolutely right. The Series S must be getting pretty cheap. If the rumors are true and the price of the PS5 without drive will be around $399, it will be difficult to sell the Series S at $299. The additional performance of the PS5 in relation to the additional price of $100 is then the much better overall package.
Didn’t vote for Xbox Series S as that’s not the console for me and I won’t be buying it whatsoever.
I voted “more” for Xbox Series X as I honestly don’t have a limit on what im willing to spend. I’m buying both Xbox Series X (primary) and PlayStation 5 (secondary) at launch, several games digitally day one, a few games on disc day one, a 4K LG OLED, a new TV stand, a computer desk, two Gaming Chairs, a new modem and ethernet cables while also increasing my internet speed so yeah, im spending a small fortune just for next gen and launch so an extra $100-$200 isn’t going to make any difference for me so im simply all in no matter what. Less than 11 weeks to go!!!
Series S: I don’t know. We don’t know anything about the console yet. That said I’m expecting it to be closer in spec to the PS5 and not what the current rumors are. I’ll probably opt for the X anyway.
Series X: I’m probably looking to pay around $499 so if it is $599 I might just have to wait a little longer for my little Xbox fund to catch up or a price drop.
I need an X to write articles about games for too, so I’ll get it pretty much regardless, but I would ideally not spend more than 500-600 Euros on a single console. Series S is something I’ll only really consider as a secondary device for local co-op and the likes, so I hope I can snag it for less than 300 (if at launch). I don’t think I’ll buy one until it hits like 100-150 though, like I snagged an extra S for 99 two years ago.
I’ll have a Series X at launch, so no hurry, and for some time chances are most games I’d want to play with my fiancé on two consoles are gonna run on Xbox One X too. That price won’t be reached soon indeed, but a man can dream
I would not assume that. A Series S that is close to the PS5 does not make much sense to me personally. I rather think that they will try to serve every customer group. On the one hand, the demanding customers who want high-end hardware without having to make any compromises and on the other hand, those who simply want to enter the new generation at the lowest possible price. But I could be wrong and maybe you are right with your estimation.
