The estimated retail price of the Xbox One is £399.99, which is £30 less than it currently stands. The price will drop on Friday, February 28. On top of that the new Titanfall bundle will, as you probably guessed, include digital copy of a game, an Xbox One console, a standard Xbox One wireless controller and Chat Headset, the Kinect sensor and one month of Xbox Live Gold membership. The pre-orders will begin today and will last while the stocks last.
According to Xbox UK managing director, Harvey Eagle, the price cut is not related to the fact that PlayStation 4 outsold Xbox One. It was planned to arrive with the launch of Titanfall and that is why it started today. The game is expected to be an Xbox One system seller, and after playing Titanfall Beta it does look like one of the best shooters we’ve seen in several years.
Harvey also said there are no plans to cut the price in other countries. The retail price in the US is at $499, which is around £300, so compared to the UK price it is already a lot cheaper. Merely three months since the launch, Microsoft is going for the price cut, will that be enough to outsell the PlayStation 4?
The price cut is a good news for everyone but those who already got the console. Seems as it doesn't pay off to get a new toy as soon as possible. Although it is normal with any product to have sales and discounts, so Microsoft isn't doing anything outrageous. Early adopters got a game when they bought the console, so nothing to rant about now. Titanfall is expected to launch in March and by the look of things it will boost Xbox One sales big time.
