Baird Equity Group posits $400 price point for new Xbox

The next generation Xbox console will set you back $350-400 in the US, according to Baird Equity Research, and will launch in November. That's a maximum of £247.83 in the UK, then, using current exchange rates and assuming Microsoft doesn't decide to price things up for overseas markets. Which it probably will.... read more

Cheaper, dev-friendly next gen Xbox will release in November

What a load of rubbish! Having an Intel chip is what made the first Xbox so easy to hack. The PowerPC chip in the 360 is easy to program for because MS make Visual Studio and have made developing for 360 very similar to developing for PC.

In over seven years, the 360 dashboard hasn't been compromised. Going back to Intel, even a 64-bit chip, is inviting hackers and pirates to have a field day.

I thought it would be nearer £350-400, so if there's any truth in that, that's awesome.

So yet another organisation that has no more REAL intel than most of us releases pretty much the same list of guesses as...most of us.

I still think the bacon grill is more likely.

Did that filter the fat away? If it's a proper grate style grill it'll be useless for eggs.

Why would you want to cook eggs on your console? Now you're just being silly

It still seems like they're just grasping straws. Although everyone seems to want to release they're games in Q1/Q2, so it's possible this gen could nd this year.

Wow, thats an ugly looking console. Disappointing.

Bacon and egg sandwich of course. It's worth them getting a really inefficient cpu etc just so it heats up enough to make toast too.

I'm suprised at how cheap its looking, although if you can't cook eggs on it then why should anyone be suprised?

It still doesn't look like it's got enough ventilation :wink:

Seriously though Microsoft, try not to mess up on the massive scale you did this time around. Once is unfortunate, twice is incompetence... OK the first time was incompetence too but you get what I mean :lol:

I think MS might be banking on the DEP and NX technologies in recent Intel CPUs to prevent hacking, as they are a hardware block to prevent unauthorised code from running. The Pentium 3 chip in the Xbox didn't have this. Hackers will get into anything eventually, though, and if I were MS, I'd have stayed with IBM for backwards compatibility reasons.
