Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Wonder about how much the playstation five and xbox series x might cost. Because we're hearing lots of reports that scarce parts are driving. The manufacturing costs above four hundred dollars. Could be four hundred and fifty dollars. Could be even more than that and the reason why I think that could be a big deal because quite frankly my dear has never been a successful console launch. That cost over four hundred dollars just never has been dug into some data about that. Were just you all you have to do is look at how much consuls costs when they launched only the PS three and the xbox one X in terms in terms popular mainstream consoles costs more than four hundred dollars launch. Both of them were failures. Alex okay. That's really interesting. Never thought about that but more so the three. Do launched it about in what happened to that. Tilda watch trip. Hawkins is I don't even know is rolling over an outrage now. The virtual boy launched for chamber fifty dollars at launch which one yes virtual boy. Yeah which is just goes to show even if you do come in under four hundred dollars. Yeah you're not guaranteed success right. So the Damon rules apply style. Thank you also the The PS three you're saying was just compared to the xbox or sixty at launch never caught up system in our time the PS three ended up. Okay but like yeah. It was very dicey for a long time and it was six hundred bucks. Ish Live hundred ninety nine. There were two five hundred six hundred dollars. Wow Yeah yeah I remember that. That was crazy at the time but also like colored the entire conversation around the consoles and so that became the biggest thing. People were talking about thinking about like. Oh this really affordable yeah and then the xbox one was five hundred dollars because they tried to shoehorn the connected to it. Nobody wanted them. What if the playstation five is actually four hundred and fifty dollars or more? What does that mean our our gamers? Okay with that now. And that's just for that. Four fifty is the report is that that's just the cost of the parts to Sony and clearly like the actual process of manufacturing it putting it in a box marketing. It yeah shipping it. Like Sony's cost alone is going to be well over. Five hundred if the four hundred and fifty costs. Reports is accurate. Yeah and for comparison the PS four cost them believe three hundred eighty one dollars two manufacturers one so they regard yes there either making a tiny profit or breaking even when they sold those conso and we know from history like the general idea is not to make a profit on your console but to make it on software unless you're Nintendo and they're trying to make profit on hardware Nintendo yet. Antennas always add a bit more stringent about that sort of thing gets more about like building user base and then selling to them with whatever exclusives et cetera. In trying to beat out your competition by not building it in with a connect. Yeah I liked I did too. They now have a streaming service to kind of point people to to. I think they WanNa get you subscribe and using this console. Yeah it's a bigger all the services and software assistant playstation. Now you're referring to yeah and like X. Cloud for for breakfast Yep Console generations are wack man. How so I W- Every single time? There's a new generation. It's just an opportunity for you to lose your entire customer base like how is that a way to run like a multibillion dollar business where like we don't know how many people are GonNa be playing playstation five and twelve months you gotta hit apple levels were guaranteed users every time. That's what like I think. I think we're GONNA see more not less. You know half step consoles. I think there's going to be every two years some new playstation in new xbox To help try to lock in your player base and keep them around and then if someone is a superfan and wants to upgrade each time great but if not maybe they'll skip one or two cycles. Is it unrealistic. As the years roll on as consul generation roll into is unrealistic to not expect councils to be to become more expensive. Like like if you've always been like three and four hundred dollars double negated it and it could. Yeah me too question. Non Not Possible. Is it unrealistic to expect consoles to always launch at four hundred dollars or under? Let's say what you're saying the psychological something episode. We talked about the six games. Right like It's hard like yes. Four hundred dollars. Fifteen years ago was a lot more money than it is today. But it's still hard to justify spending five hundred six hundred on a new game. Console sounds like a lot sounds like a lot. Well that's why they have the different skews I guess. And that's also an apple iphone model where it's like we'll have the cheaper model and then the more expensive model for the people that really want the best experience out of each of these things. Yes but only in Microsoft is ruined. Have different different. It's actually interesting like I wonder if playstations GonNa be forced into have just to have the options unna but it is the same with games because sixty dollars doesn't really cover the cost of production for a video game. It's just what we've become. What standardize what we're used to what we're comfortable with the second you start elevating that price. It's like new. Start to get choosier about what games you'RE GONNA buy. We probably we all used. I mean I don't want to speak for everybody but I remember it the Iphone being something that you either subscribe. It was like a payment plan. You can do with your cell phone service. Yeah and I remember the price for them. Outright was always like crazy it was like you could pay thirty bucks a month or it's like six hundred hundred dollars but then now it is like you can't do that anymore. And like every phone is eight hundred or nine hundred eleven now like people just kind of eat that now on their on their phone. Bill Their Verizon Bill just includes you'RE GONNA pay thirty bucks a month for two years and have this phone. Maybe they'll have like a turn and also if you're a subscriber some sort of discounted rate in the future so xbox xbox is doing expert you have. Hey a monthly fee. It's actually an incredible deal. I'm a little bit like Microsoft is in such a weird spot because they're doing so much awesome stuff. That's like not really getting the attention. They probably deserve with a game. Pass being so great. And they're backwards compatibility being so great but like you can get an xbox one ex Today you guys game pass for a year so you know every first party Microsoft game and then you just pay a monthly fee and then you're GonNa then they send you an xbox one X it's just part of the subscription like it seems great. I I like I feel like there's probably some catch hiding in the fine print but on the face of it like that seems really smart and I think that that's the future I was. I was GONNA say it would be really great if you could do that. And it would also be the next consel counsel tossing in my life. I can be like I subscribe to Xbox and that just means that I can play all the games and then have the new system. Says they come out. Your goal is that install base in your awarding you're consistent loyal users that's how you retain them game pass like TV now and of course cell phone in services and stuff. It's like we do just kind of accept the subscription service plans now especially the more mainstream like having a gaming console becomes the more likely it is that the services in the packages are what's going to be important because people aren't going to be as in the weeds with all of the Council. Warri stuff that everybody else talks about. It's going to be like what's the best deal in this case so to bring it back around to you're like what are the council's going to cost. And I think we're GONNA see a four hundred dollar and a six hundred dollar xbox and I think we're GONNA see a five hundred dollar. Ps five so entrance is just going to thread the needle in between them that you know that would be an interesting situation. Because then I don't know how many people are GonNa think the four hundred xboxes a more attractive deal than the five hundred five hundred dollars five. It makes it tough to message box in the better situation. Because they're like we have this really really sexy for a lot of people and then like the low end one. It's like well I might as well just spring for that. It does sort of Yeah actually I think I agree saying that like that gives them a five hundred xbox four hundred the odds and evens if it were if it were four five six that way that gives xbox the leverage on both ends right. It really doesn't have the cheapest entry into Nexgen. And then we have the most high concept but they're currently playing console chicken
