Microsoft defends Xbox One $500 price point–“We’re over-delivering value”
Microsoft’s Xbox boss Don Mattrick has spoken out to defend the Xbox One’s $500 price point, saying the company is in fact over-delivering value with the next-generation system.
“It’s a lower number than some of the analysts had forecasted,” Mattrick said on Bloomberg TV. “We’re over-delivering value against other choices I think consumers can get. Any modern product these days you look at it [and] $499 isn’t a ridiculous price point. We’re delivering thousands of dollars of value to people, so I think they’re going to love it when they use it.”
You’re not helping, Microsoft.
