Has there been any information about what the next gen Xbox aka Xbox Infinity aka Xbox Durango ak X720 is going to cost? I'm pretty excited about a new generation of consoles arriving, but I still have to pay the rent!

From what I've heard, there isn't likely to be a Xbox LIVE Gold subscription subsidized version, at least not initially, which would nix the low-end, ~$300 price point. $499 is the likely retail price. I'm still waiting to hear definitively whether or not it will play used games without making the 2nd purchaser pay an additional charge from Microsoft. A $499 price I can deal with, but if they force me to pay them to play used games, I will wait for the PS4 and/or consider the Wii U.

Microsoft hasn't announced pricing, so anything mentioned here is a guess or a rumor. But what I've read is that Xbox 720 will cost anywhere from $299 to $400. Also, the games themselves could cost an extra $10 to cover extra development costs.

It looks like Becker was right. According to GameInformer, Microsoft just released the price of the XBox One: $499.99. Now we have to see where Sony prices the PS4, but it looks like we might have a repeat of the last generation, with the Nintendo console being somewhat less powerful and less expensive, and the Sony and Microsoft consoles charging a premium for higher end hardware.

Price of Xbox One may be less than 360 say insiders
http://www.independent.co.uk/life-style/gadgets-and-tech/gaming/price-of...

"The Xbox One may cost less than the launch price of the Xbox 360, it is believed.

Robert Lloyd, chief financial officer of games retailer Games Spot, told financial analysts that the new-generation consoles, such as Xbox One and PS4, would have a “lower opening price than they did last cycle”, PCWorld reports.

This would mean the X Box One would be cheaper than most recent estimates suggest, as the 360 originally launched at £209.99 for the core system and £279.99 for the 20GB model.

The PS3’s original launch price was pricier - £425 for the 60GB model – though the later release of the 40GB model brought the price down to £299.

GameStop said they could not announce official pricing but said that their estimates had sprung from their modelling of the games market in 2013-14."
