The more it sells, the more they lose. The percentage of market share they may gain by doing this in the short run won't justify the loss.


So what, 50$ loss or so is a big deal to them! No it isn't.

It's $50 multiplied by the number of consoles they sell.


And if each person buys Halo with Xbox Live? As it shows in the "Frequently bought with this Item" list.

Exactly they are still making profits. Not as many people would have bought a X1 are this price, however now with this price cut they are purchasing a game and a subscription

Saddest thing about this post is that you don't know the AC bundle actually released BEFORE the COD one



With the way the hourlies have been going the last day or so I expect SO bundle to drop out soonish and PS4 to climb into the top 20. But I'm not sure PS4 will be able to drag itself past the CoD bundle, even though it's ahead of it now on the hourlies, because it will have built up a pretty substantial head start. Looks like Ass Cred bundle is shaping to be the highest HW for at least the first half of the month.

I wonder when Amazon will restock with vanilla Xb one's and what effect that will have on the bundle sales.

November 12th I think. 

Also, Halo putting in big numbers.



I wonder how sales will be after jan 3 when it comes back to regular price. I think Microsoft will suffer more on first half of 2015 compared to PS4 sales by widening the gap because of PS4 exclusives and 3rd party games which sells better on PS4 due to superior version.



GAMING is not about spending hours to pass/waste our time just for fun,

its a Feeling/Experience about a VIRTUAL WORLD we can never be in real, and realizing some of our dreams (also creating new ones).

So, Feel Emotions, Experience Adventure/Action, Challenge Game, Solve puzzles and Have fun.

PlayStation is about all-round "New experiences" using new IP's to provide great diversity for everyone.

Xbox is always about Online and Shooting.

Nintendo is always about Fun games and milking IP's.

I don't really think this is a temporary price drop.  I think MS have slashed the price to bring as many people's purchases forward as they can, thus winning November and December NPD, and the media presence and mind share that brings.

Sales will always be lower in January of course, but I don't think it will be very long after Jan 3rd where we see MS make the 'temporary' price cut permanent.  ALthough that will obviously have very little affect after the holiday season at the same price

So vanilla sku will drop away a bit it until the 15-ish Nov update, and then it should bounce back.

Any word / rumour of a SO bundle re-stock?
