"Xbox One will retail at $399 at launch; PS4 to run you $349 "
So, hey, according to Micheal Patcher http://tinyurl.com/kf8nweg :him < -- yes, the Xbox One's build cost will be more than that of the PlayStation 4's. Blaspheme. In actuality, he states that the Xbox One will cost $325 per unit, on the other hand, the PlayStation 4 will cost $275. The vey mecurial analyst had this to say, so pull up a chair:
“We believe the ability to watch live TV from a cable, telco, or satellite set-top box through Xbox One could entice an MSO to drive subscriptions through a subsidised box in exchange for a multi-year contract. The ‘always connected’ requirement for the Xbox One likely means that a broadband connection will be required, suggesting to us that ISPs may have an incentive to offer a subsidy as well."
