Microsoft Speaks Out Against Criticism Over Cost Of Xbox One

By: Steve Wylde

Microsoft Xbox One front man, Don Mattrick, has come to the company’s defense after complaints that with a price tag of $500, this console is overpriced. He states that the company is actually over-delivering on this console and that the next generation systems are worth more than that of previous generations. Mattrick declared that people get thousands of dollars in value out of the Xbox One.

This newest version of the Xbox comes complete with a Kinect 2.0 sensor that those who purchase other brands of game consoles have to purchase separately. He touts this as one of the reasons why the Xbox One is so expensive. While Sony is offering a similar new console at a price of only $400, Mattrick argues the Xbox One is worth the extra $100 because it comes with SmartGlass, Twitch TV, Skype and an improved version of Xbox Live as well.
