The first is the console we're all expecting, providing true next-generation gaming experiences, while the other will be a more affordable unit aimed at the casual market. The latter is said to use Windows 8 as the basis of its operating system, and won't be able to run the latest triple-A titles, but will support downloadable casual games from Xbox Live.
What do you guys think? Is this a wise move on Microsoft's behalf? I do think that marketing a console aimed solely at families is definitely a good idea, but this makes me think the price gap between the two version of the console will be rather large. I'm thinking something along the lines of 500 bucks for the "full" version of the console. Express your thoughts about this new development here.
