Price dependent I can see this doing well. I'd be tempted at the £125-150 mark.

How much is one with a drive nowadays, can't be much more than that 2nd hand can it? 

 

Also I was thinking like £70. Yours is probably more realistic though

@DANGERMAN at £70 it would fly off the shelves. If it comes with a 1tb hd and a controller, that's probably £70 worth of stuff there.

Amazon are doing a 1tb white S for £179... 70 quid is a ridiculous expectation.🤣

I'm not expecting that, that's just where I think it needs to be to sell well, sub £100 at least. That said, what do I know, I'm not a financial analyst it could fly out at £130, for me though that's too close to something that offers you more

I'd totally do the phone contract thing for one.  £15 a month with Gamepass, Gold and the box (I dunno how much that stuff costs separately btw)?

Obviously the price overall goes down if you pay a year, but currently it’s something like 8 quid a month for each. I could see a minimum of 25 a month for the first year. Then hike the price up (minus the cost of the machine) once the contract runs out.

I could see £125 with a year of gold and GamePass chucked in... that would be stupid value for money and a great jumping in point for new customers.

 

I just don't see a sub £100 pounds price point being doable but, like you say, what do we know.

Just Cause 4 must've sold terribly. It's on GamePass, already.

I’ll probably not get round to playing it but that is a great GP addition.

I think we're just coming at it from different angles. I'd sell it cheap to encourage subs, a bit like Amazon do with their Fire stuff

To be fair to both of us, a years sub to Gold and Gamepass would make the console less than £100 anyhow.👍

Posted in the For Free thread, but putting it here as well as I didn't realise Crackdown 2 wasn't backward compatible already.

Master Chief Collection is coming to PC, available on Steam, which is surprising. Adding the games one by one, so they must still be struggling to make it work.

Also they're adding Reach to the collection. This makes things a little awkward for someone.

Reach campaign will be paid DLC if you bought the game on Xbox, multiplayer will be on there for free. GamePass version will have everything, as will the PC version.

 

Also, Minecaft coming to GamePass on the 4th of April.

Does that mean Reach is coming to the Xbox version as paid dlc?... I've never played Reach and it's supposed to be good.

 

Edit... Actually I can't read, forget that question.

It's not the simplest of solutions.

If you have the game on download or disc, Reach multiplayer will available. Campaign will be DLC. 

GamePass version will have everything.

It's only the campaign I'm interested in to be honest, guess we'll see how much they want for it.
