Xbox One X Price Tag Will Be The Cause Of Its Downfall, According To Pachter

Xbox One X is supposed to be the most powerful console on the market and the hardware is much superior as compared to the PS4 Pro. While we already know that this is not something for everyone, Michael Pachter claims that the Xbox One X will not sell too well.

Both the PS4 and the Xbox One S are priced at $299 and they are regularly discounted. You can get one for $249 and they often come with a game or two which has some monetary value. This means that you are paying about $200 for a gaming console and that is very reasonable.

On the other hand, the Xbox One X will cost around $600 if you include the cost of buying games separately. Keeping in mind that majority of the people have not moved on to 4K TVs yet this might seem logical. According to Pachter:

You’ll be able to get to Christmas Xbox One X launch date and for $600 you can buy a PlayStation and an Xbox and get a piece of software for each for sure like I promised that and If you can’t get that I’ll give you the 50 bucks difference,

While these claims are bold, there are huge sales at Christmas time. All will come down to personal preference. If you are looking for a 4K console then the Xbox One X might be something worth looking into.

I’ll give you software you’re going to find that during the Holiday Season between Black Friday and Christmas. I promise you at least 5 days in that period you will be able to buy each console for $300 and free pieces of software. For $600 you can buy both consoles and two games, and for $500 you can buy an Xbox One X and no games and if you want to buy two games at least another 100 bucks so the value proposition is ONE CONSOLE TWO GAMES or TWO CONSOLE TWO GAMES.

Let us know what you think about the Xbox One X and whether or not you agree with this statement.
