About a month ago it became known that the Xbox keystone The release date was pushed back, although we didn’t know why. In a new interview, Microsoft Gaming CEO Phil Spencer has now revealed that the project has been put on hold for the time being because they couldn’t prevent the device from being priced too high.
What is the Xbox Keystone price?
Microsoft wants Xbox Keystone to be between $99 and $129.
That price proved quite difficult, as Spencer told The Verge that it “was more expensive than we wanted when we actually built it with the hardware we had inside”.
Due to the prices of the silicon components in the device, when paired with a controller, it was priced closer to $299, the cost of an Xbox Series S. A quick look at this early prototype can be seen on Spencer’s office shelf.
The Xbox Keystone streaming device has been put on hold for now, although Spencer said “we’re still focused on that and seeing when we can get the right cost.” This means the Xbox Keystone device release date has been delayed indefinitely as the team instead focuses on delivering smart TV streaming apps like the Samsung Partnership.
