Its written in a Xbox-freindly way, but if this rumour is true then the next xbox could cost upto $529.

Thing is the prices will likely be the same in £, as with the Xbox and Xbox360 MS sell consoles multi region at the same price figure rather than the currency equivelant, In the UK they always have anyway.

So would you be happy to pay $300 and then be tied to a compulsary subcription for two years? or would you rather pay $500 out right? Or since rumours is the nextbox will be somewhere inbetween the WiiU and Ps4 in terms of specs would you bother at all with the nextbox?

I don't know. I like to buy things upfront, but the fact that it adds into Xbox Live seems like a better deal (even if it is still expensive). I probably won't buy the console anyways, though.

I'm not too crazy about contracts plus I really do not think it is really worth paying for Xbox Live Gold anymore, I mean Playstation Plus seems to offer more value (though this is just my opinion). If the biggest difference between the current generation Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 and next-generation xbox and PS4 is just graphics then I will stick with a high-end PC that I will be building soon and my Wii U. The only reason I purchase consoles is for first party titles and a few key third-party titles; not many of Sony or Microsoft's first-party titles interests me and many of their third-party games are also available for Windows (although if the next Final Fantasy game is only coming to PS4 then I might get that console eventually once the price lowers a bit).

I'm just interested in peoples thoughts on this purchase model.
Personally think that I could work for MS, but only if people accept a always on internet connection, at least for initial boot-up.

Seems to pretty much confirm my suspisions that the next gen in terms of console specs is less clear cut between the WiiU, Nextbox, and Ps4 than it was with Wii, Ps3, 360.
All 3 of the next gen consoles (yes i'm including WiiU) seem to be different and seem to have pricing to reflect the spec difference. (admitedly based on ps4/nextbox pricing/spec rumours)
Also in reality in terms of graphic capability, it seems that while the WiiU to Ps4 gap may be the biggest, (how big still is unclear) the next xbox will be placed in the middle, with less if any extra oomph over the WiiU, forcing certain developers to finally consider the WiiU as 'Next-Gen'.
