Holiday sale alert! As predicted by our show staff earlier last month, a price drop is heading to Microsoft's Xbox One beginning today. Why wait in lines and sheer stupidity insanity on Black Friday when you could instead be already gaming on an Xbox One a full three weeks before the herd? If you don't have an answer for that other than "it's an experience" then I suggest you take a look at the reduced prices on Xbox One consoles and bundles.
In the US, the Xbox One will be $349, $50 off, and that price applies to your choice of the console, including special edition bundles. This includes Assassin's Creed Unity, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare and Sunset Overdrive. If you needed a reason for Sunset Overdrive, I believe you now have one. Yusuf Mehdi, VP for Microsoft, shared my sentiment of not waiting for Black Friday.
Fans don't have to wait for Black Friday this year to enjoy great savings on Xbox One. We're offering our best price yet, with unprecedented choices and value, so more people can play on Xbox One this holiday. We're gearing up for one of our biggest holidays ever and we are thrilled to offer fans up to $150 in savings on Xbox One and some of the biggest blockbuster games of the season.
For those wanting the Kinect with your console, and trust me when I say you want the Kinect with your console, the $50 off still applies, making the Assassin's Creed Unity bundle with Kinect $449. For the Call of Duty bundle, the custom console comes complete with a 1TB hard drive and is available tomorrow, sans Kinect, for $449, but the price is justified through the bigger hard drive and fully custom Xbox One and controller.
The promo runs through January 3rd but why wait to play your favorite games? Head over to the Microsoft Store and pick up your console now! Or, you know, tomorrow if you want the Call of Duty bundle. It definitely feels like Microsoft has picked up a lot of steam heading into the holidays.
