Scott Rohde , one of Sony’s executives , stated that Sony’s team started dancing and high-fiving eachother the first they heard that Xbox One is launching on a higher price-point than their PS4.
“I’m not gonna lie,” he replied. “I remember exactly where I was. We were in press conference rehearsals last year. We had a feeling they were going to come in at $499, but we weren’t sure. So yeah, we were dancing in the aisles and high-fiving. It was great. Anyone that came in on an interview, it didn’t matter what the question was, I could always just answer it with $399. It was the answer to every question.”
Rohde also said that he wasn’t surprised of Microsoft leaving Kinect behind with its new Xbox One’s bundles to cut back the costs .
“I think that, to be truthful, we always assumed that eventually they’d have to release a SKU without a camera. So we were waiting for it to a degree, and we were ready for it.”
What did you thought when Sony announced the PS4 for only 399$ at E3 2013 ? was it the perfect price to go with ?
