Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4 will be less expensive at launch than their predecessors, according to GameStop chief financial officer Rob Lloyd.
During its post-earnings financial call, Lloyd said GameStop does not have official pricing information from Microsoft or Sony, but expects a “lower opening price point than they did last cycle.”
Xbox 360 launched with two skus ($300/$400) and the PlayStation 3 was available at $500 or $600 in US.
“In addition, GameStop said it expects to be a leading retailer for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.
The company explained that because of the trade credits it can offer consumers through its buy-sell-trade model, gamers will be able to pick up next-gen systems at GameStop for less than anywhere else.”
