Xbox 720 launching in November at $500 - Report
 

 
Noted Windows blogger Paul Thurrott has details on Microsoft's recently confirmed next-generation Xbox. In an update to his website today, Thurrott claimed the platform will launch in November at $500.


This release window would put the Xbox 720 up against the PlayStation 4, also believed to release during November.

A $300 Xbox 720 will also be available, Thurrott said, though this model will require consumers commit to two years of Xbox Live gold at an expected price of $10 month. If this pricing is accurate, gamers would end up spending $540 overall.

Thurrott said Microsoft's May 21 Xbox 720 reveal event will be the first of multiple announcements for the platform. A second event will follow ahead of the 2013 Electronic Entertainment Expo in June, where the platform's full launch lineup will be revealed, he said.

Crytek's Kinect game Ryse and a new Forza title, among others, are reportedly part of the Xbox 720's launch lineup.

A third, developer-centric event will take place during the Build conference in San Francisco in late June, Thurrott said.

Concerning the Xbox 720's architecture and specifications, Thurrott understands that the platform is based on the core version of Windows 8. "This suggests a common apps platform or at least one that is similar to that used by Windows 8," he said.

Thurrott also said the Xbox 720 will contain a Blu-ray optical drive and reiterated that the system will require an Internet connection to function. This feature "isn't as Draconian as many seem to believe," he said.

Lastly, the blogger again mentioned that Microsoft will release a third generation Xbox 360 console in 2013 that will be "significantly less expensive" than current models. This console is codenamed Stingray, he said.

Currently, the Xbox 360 starts at $200 for a 4GB unit and scales to $300 for a 250GB bundle.

Thurrott is a noted Microsoft insider and runs Paul Thurrott's Supersite for Windows.

$600-$700+ after taxes and games etc
MS on that Sony 06 wave, not sure MS fanbase into that wave
Then this guy brings up always online sh*t again smh.

Is MS basically building their own PC with this new xbox?, WIN8 based OS 16 Gig ram with IE
interrnet, MS word social apps and much more beyond pc into TV stuff we heard.

Got a feeling cheap PS4 rumors will be true after all, Sony stepped back out of that
PS3 having to much sh*t...it has fu*king printers support and other useless sh*t lol.....back to the basics...the games.Blended with the social media bullsh*t of today.
Their SKU specs looks cheap to make where only memory is pricey, Probably will be 350-400max range.

Pricing model makes no sense. I'd pick up the $300 one if that's the case, considering you'd be getting 2 years of LIVE for $40, really.

Yeah, I'd do the same. It just seems like the better decision unless you plan on selling your console.

No entertainment box. Microsoft originally planned to offer both a “full” version of the next Xbox (with video game playing capabilities) and a lower-end entertainment-oriented version, codenamed “Yuma,” that did not provide video gaming capabilities. But plans for Yuma are on hold and no pure entertainment version of the next Xbox will appear in 2013 (or possibly ever).

Ummm just use the 99 buck 360.

But that's still more expensive than the current model.

Yea this doesn't make sense at all. I'll wait for official info before I believe any of this. The better deal would be on the $300 two-year contract unless Microsoft is planning to heavily discount Gold next gen (which we all know won't happen)

Gamespot is reporting that Live for the subsidized model is going to be $10/month. They would end up spending $540 overall.

I know this is a rumor but That's about the price I was thinking it would cost anyway...I'm guessing the PS 4 will either be $499 or $449 as well...

Sounds like I'm going to have to ride with one console this fall. Too much heat dropping.

i was thinking the same thing.

$500 for a console is about right for this day and age. got a feeling ps4 and nextbox will be the exact same price. i do wonder how big of a gap between one getting released before the other though.

im getting withing 1-2 months with ps4 releasing first.
