Xbox One Getting Price Cut This Holiday Season
Starting in November, Microsoft is getting a jump on the holidays by reducing the price of the Kinect-less Xbox One to $349. Yes, that includes the bundles.
Xbox has announced that the prices of all Xbox Ones across the United States will be dropping by $50 starting on Nov. 2 throughout the duration of the holiday season. The Kinect-less version of the Xbox One will be available for a promotional price of $349 while the Kinect version will cost $449. This discount also applies to the Xbox One's special edition bundles, such as the Assassin's Creed Unity, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Sunset Overdrive bundles. That's right, buying one of these bundles can now save you up to $150.
“Fans don’t have to wait for Black Friday this year to enjoy great savings on Xbox One. We’re offering our best price yet, with unprecedented choices and value, so more people can play on Xbox One this holiday,” said Microsoft Corporate Vice President Yusuf Mehdi. “We’re gearing up for one of our biggest holidays ever and we are thrilled to offer fans up to $150 in savings on Xbox One and some of the biggest blockbuster games of the season.”
Most major retailers across the U.S., including Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target, Toys 'R Us and Walmart, will honor this discount.
The deal ends on Jan. 3, 2015, but we're skeptical Microsoft will actually crank the price back up in the new year.
