Xbox One: $50 Price Cut for Holiday Season
Microsoft slashes $50 on their Xbox One, starting from November 2, based on an update released by the Deal News. It's said that they will drop the retail price of the Xbox One without a Kinect to $349, while the Kinect-ed version will drop to $449. Both versions will include a copy of Assassin's Creed Unity or Sunset Overdrive, well, you're lucky game lover!
But before you purchase this very special holiday treat, the Kinect version has a lot of better discounts for the Xbox One than this new price from Microsoft. Just a prediction, the Black Friday price of this console will drop to $370 during the infamous shopping holiday.
While you're looking for the lowest price possible, it's important to consider the value of the Kinect sensor when looking at which version you should buy. If the base console indeed stays at $350 for Black Friday, but the Kinect version drops to $370, then the latter will be the far better buy. If you buy the base model, and then later decide you want the sensor, you'll have to chalk up $150 to get it. Shoppers would do well to spend that extra $20 and get the sensor bundled instead.
On Amazon the pre-sale pricing for the new bundles does not reflect the price you'll pay as of Sunday, according to PC World. Anyone looking to get an Xbox in the next few days should wait until the sale pricing comes into effect.
Microsoft says the promotion will be available at most major retailers including Amazon, Best Buy, Gamestop, and, of course, The Microsoft Store.
Unfortunately, the Microsoft's new price cut is just temporary, with an end date of January 3, 2015. It's sure that they wanted you to spend your holiday budget in buying Xbox and not the new Playstation 4, which has been outselling Xbox One. What could be the respond of Sony in this price cut? We might have an update sooner or later.
So, what do you think about the price cut? Are you willing to wait for a deal during Black Friday or you will just take this opportunity given by Microsoft for you to save some dollars? Sound off in the comments below.
