Shelly Palmer Radio Report – September 12, 2013

Microsoft recently announced that its Xbox One will hit store shelves in 13 markets on November 22 for $499. For those keeping track at home, that’s one week after Sony’s PlayStation 4 goes up for sale in the United States and $100 more expensive. The Xbox One launches in Europe on the same day, comes bundled with a free game and will beat the PS4 to shelves by a full week. With all eyes on Sony and Microsoft’s head-to-head clash this holiday season, Nintendo recently announced a $50 price cut to the Wii U, which came out last fall. The Wii U’s sales numbers have been terrible, and the system has seen very few games that would make it a must own. Will a $299 price tag, abundant supply and a handful of good games releasing this fall spell success for Nintendo this holiday season? We’ll find out in just a few short months, when the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 go on sale this November.
