New Xbox 720: Price Point For Dealbreaker

My colleague Alan Ng told you this morning that the current range of gaming consoles may be seeing some price cuts later this year. We also had the news that Microsoft was now hiring staff to work on the next generation of console.

With this news that Microsoft are already building the next Xbox, many Xbox fans will be excited to see what Microsoft have to offer this time round. But are many current Xbox 360 owners even ready to upgrade just yet? Pricing could also be a major factor for people deciding to get the next version; the original price of the PS3 put a lot of people off.

Many gamers are either in the Xbox 360 camp or the PS3 side of the fence, with a few lucky people having both. But what would Microsoft have to do to entice gamers away from their PS3s?

Simon Miller from Now Gamer thinks Microsoft could actually announce the next Xbox at the E3 event in June. He feels an unveiling would make sense as Sony and Nintendo would be stealing all the limelight with their new handheld consoles, but doesn’t think any new Xbox would be available before the end of 2012.

This will mean the current Xbox having a shelve life of seven years, compared to the four years the original lasted. Microsoft has previously said that the Xbox 360 would continue until 2015, but they can still announce the next version.

What Price would the next Xbox have to be for you to part with your cash?
