If I were in USA I would probably took that bait.

There have been some really good deals. 

The rumors probably do not help.  I saw the deal being talked about in the amazon thread and thought to myself oooh I want to get that just because it is sooooo good of a deal but then thought, crap I also want to see what they show at E3.  Ha, it is so conflicting!

I can not remember the exact deal but it sure sounded like a really good deal. 

I am for some odd reason really interested in seeing if they talk about a slim streaming xbox one.  I know most are against it on forums but it has peaked my curiosity.

Yes I bet, the reason I haven't bought WiiU (besides games keeping pricey) and X1 is more that PS4 already uses all my time.

Ya know I was thinking something with this new offer... if MS is trying to do it to make a few sales before E3 and the launch of a new reveal of new shiny hardware, what kind of buyer does this make anyone who has been on the edge about buying an X1 since launch? you're already talking about someone who isn't fully confident to invest money in the system and then this offer comes with the potential of just 2 weeks of ownership before a massive dose of buyers remorse with E3...

I just think if anyone does buy in now and gets stung like that, they most certainly wont be a happy gamer or likely to support a future system or release. Just my budget gamer logic at play here, might mean far less for others of course buying a replaced model for slightly less.

Yes, like I said, none of this makes sense. No matter how you look at it you can't find a single sensible reason for this strategy, unless the end goal is to deliberately drive the console market into the ground and to justify moving XB owners over to PC. If you look at it from that angle, it actually makes sense. XB1 games are all going to PC, Live is free on PC, XB1 OS going over to PC, start using the term 'platform', and kill the console.

Now they don't have to keep announcing "temporary" price cuts every 9 minutes.

Lol I don't think I've ever seen a comsole get discounted this much over its first 2+ years.

PS3

It went from $599/499 to $299 in very similar time frame. But X1 has been able to do it without significant losses thanks to removal of Kinect and less expensive hardware.

Edit: Didn't know that was an old post and had a response. :-p

It seems the holiday bundle is still selling on Amazon, it's still in the top 100.
