First off, I don't consider what they did a price drop. They just unbundled the kinnect.
Second. I've gotta say that I was very surprised about the xbox one's sales this week. I was expecting 80,000 this week.


Then you would be wrong.

How am I wrong? They unbundled the kinnect, and sold it at a lower price. That's not a price drop. 
So let's look at a comparable situation. Say you want to buy a restaurant. If you buy it furnished completely, it will cost $100,000. If you buy it without any, it will cost $80,000. You also price it out to find that it will cost 20,000 to furnish it if you don't pay the 100,000. You're not really getting the building at a lower price...

LOL   The official entry point into an X1 was $499.99. Now it's $399.99. You can try and spin it with analogies all you want. In the end you would be wrong and only sound like a bad MS PR statement from NPD.

I find it hilarious that you don't understand such a simple idea. the xbox one costs $400. The xbox one AND the kinnect cost $500.

Oh I understand it. It's just you don't understand numbers. They dropped the kinect so they could drop the price. It's a price drop. I get the fact that you don't want to admit it. But who cares?  I and most likely quite a few others here consider it a price drop. I can't make it anymore clearer then that. If you don't see it...then whatever, no matter. Enjoy your $80,000 restaurant  and good day.

Well, I guess consumers don't see it as a price drop, considering that sales were barely effected. You're now buying one thing instead of two. That's the difference. I'm running out of ways to illistrate how this isn't a price drop though.

Barely affected?  It nearly doubled in weekly sales which is great for June and going into the summer. Not to mention with all the retailer discounts MS had on over the last few months people who were planning to buy in June likely bought earlier with TF bundle discounts. It's been one week so I wouldn't write off the price drop just yet.
