I’ve also been wondering what the price point is going to be for these Next-Gen consoles and lo and behold I got an email tonight from GameStop Power Up Rewards with a link to Gamstop’s Xbox One Pre-Order page. Evidently they are selling Pre-Orders with a minimum of one game for as low as $559.98 (USD).
