During an interview with Eurogamer during the XO19 event in London, Microsoft exec Phil Spencer recognized Microsoft’s error with the prices of the Xbox One, as well as stated that they will certainly not be duplicating that once more.
” I will certainly claim, from the launch of Xbox One, I have actually most definitely found out that being as well expensive as well as not effective sufficient is not an excellent place to be. As well as cost and also efficiency are gon na be essential, as well as we’re extremely concentrated on both of those points.” He additionally includes, “If you remember at the launch of Xbox One, we were $100 much more costly and also much less effective. So, I won’t be in that setting. There’s no doubt about that.”
