They really need to make sure that the Destiny week doesn't look like a bloodbath in the US + them launching in tier 2 countries.
Smart strategic move. We have to wait and see if this will pay out.

Aren't those called "bundles?"

And, this is one amazing bundle package. This should be done by every platform holder.

bundles are usually with a specific game that you can´t choose

 

ot: nice to see that bundles also included in the promo



Good idea to have something to go against Destiny but I think this should have been announced a couple of weeks ago, it may be a bit late now to have a big impact



MS trying to counter the white ps4 launch and destiny helping move PS4's. good move



Is this another indirect price cut?

Free choice bundles are the best choices!*

*if available

In this case, I say that it comes bundled with a choice of any retail game. I still maintain that this is a great deal, though.

One more sign that things are not good for Xone, no matter how delusions people have here.
Giving games free (having to pay to developers to stay relevant), bundling games (same as giving free), early price cuts (lowering the profits), Kinectless bundle etc...
MS is REALLY in damage control mode this year.



Dang. Awesome deal.

See. This is why you need competition. Checks and balances. It's good to be a gamer. And if you're loyal to the "losing" side, you get some perks you might not expect.

Way to give away that you didn't read beyond the title and the picture!

This is practically a 50 dollars price cut and should help, not very much, but it's a move in the right direction and should convince those who were going to get the X1 to buy one sooner.

If they had done this earlier then they would have a lot of those past buyers from 2 weeks ago waiting for the destiny week.

We saw how sale went after they annoinced the price cut. I am guessing they didn't want a repeat on that.
