But is that really a good deal? You’re still shelling out $399 for an Xbox One, the same price as the PlayStation 4.
Don’t get me wrong. I’d love to have an Xbox One (and if money was no object, a PlayStation 4). But I’ll wait until the price goes down, which hopefully will come when the Xbox One’s library of games is beefed up. There doesn’t seem to be a whole lot to choose from right now.
Absent of a big price drop and a robust gaming library, I’m still getting some good use out of my Xbox 360. Microsoft says it will continue to make games for the older console through 2016, so I’m good for now.
But here’s the thing. By 2016 or earlier, the Xbox One and PS4 are going to start showing their age because they can only support a maximum 1080p resolution when it comes to TVs.
Sooner or later (maybe sooner), 4K will become the standard high definition for TVs, which will eventually become affordable and hugely popular.
If that’s the case, I might wait to buy a gaming system that’s optimized for 4K.
