Microsoft slashes price of Xbox One just in time for Black Friday
Starting Nov. 2, the price of the Xbox One will go down to $349 from its original price of $399.
Looks like Microsoft is hitting Sony harder than ever just in time for the holiday shopping season. Microsoft is trying to be as competitive as possible, seeing as how Sony has outsold it and has almost beat out Microsoft in the console wars.
The price drop is temporary, though, as Microsoft is just aiming to get the holiday shopping crowd amped up. But Microsoft may choose to keep the price lower, if it proves worthwhile.
With the price drop, Microsoft is introducing several exclusive bundles, including one with Sunset Overdrive and another with Assassin’s Creed. Both will be sold at the $349 price.
Another bundle with Call of Duty and Kinect will actually sell for more at $449.
This could potentially be good news for those waiting to buy an Xbox One. The wait may have paid off.
Yet, it’s too early to tell if Microsoft can actually beat Sony. Sony has a huge lead in selling its consoles and although this is the first time that Microsoft has undercut Sony’s PS4, it may be too little, too late.
You have until Jan. 3, 2015 to buy your discounted Xbox One.
