If you’re shopping for a brand new Xbox One, then you may want to wait another week for an amazing deal that you can’t walk away from. A deal that puts money back into your wallet and that Microsoft believes will help pave the way for a “bright future” for the next-gen console, which launched a year ago at $500.
Soon after a price cut rumor started circulating earlier today, Microsoft surprisingly announced a $50 price cut for all Xbox One systems in the United States. Sadly, the discount does not extend outside of the U.S. for the time being. Starting on Sunday, November 2, the Kinect free system will sell at $350 and the standard Kinect bundle will sell at $450. For the first time since the systems launch in November 2013, the Xbox One will be cheaper than the PlayStation 4. However, Sony has not announced any limited-time deals for the PS4 this holiday yet, so that could all change shortly.
Lastly, the price cut will also apply to the special edition bundles, including the ones that come with Assassin’s Creed Unity, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, and Sunset Overdrive.
