Forums - Microsoft Discussion - Microsoft Store slashes the price of Xbox One to $449.99 USD

 

 

A few days ago, Microsoft dropped the price of their Xbox One Titanfall bundle to $449.99. We are now receiving reports that the Microsoft has slashed $50 off their entire line of Xbox One units.

As of now, the Xbox One Titanfall Edition and Xbox One with Forza Motorsport 5 both are running $449.99 at the Microsoft Store and a few other retailers..

In addition to the two major bundles being slashed in the United States, Microsoft has also reduced the cost of their Xbox One Complete Bundle, Xbox One Ultimate Bundle, and Xbox One Play and Charge Bundle all by around $50.

Microsoft’s Xbox One entertainment console has made unprecedented sales and surpassed the sales rate of its processor, the Xbox 360. As of now, we are unsure if Microsoft is simply putting their console on sale for a short period or if the Xbox One is receiving a permanent price drop. We have reached out to Microsoft for an official comment.

Nice. Here is hoping they stick to that. $450 with a game, the most fully featured console on the market, and a continued strong marketing push should make MS very competitive in the USA.

Still need to launch in more countries and bring out Europe-centric content though.

Omg, so its actually official? Is this the quickest price cut in the history of console gaming I wonder since the wiiU had a price cut around October? (The super failed consoles don't count)

Dropping price : "oh its not desperation its just one retailer! Its not like an official drop or anything

Manufacturer drops the price on their own website, what now?

Sorry MS still not buying it, that thing should cost at least 100 less than the PS4, the hardware design and games that it current has it absolutely does not compensate the 450 price tag.

Looks like Microsoft was responsible for the temporary $50 price cuts at Walmart and Best Buy then. Smart move, yes they'll be selling at a loss per console, but marketshare is more valuable in the long run due to profit from software, accessories, and XBL subs.

I thought they'd wait for E3.

At this point it is painfully obvious Microsoft are worried about its retail performance.

Fastest was the original Xbox, a $100 price drop in May, just 6 months after release. This would be faster but a smaller price drop. That's assuming this is permanent, which it might not be.
