Xbox One Price Drop At Microsoft Store And Other Major Retailers

Posted March 26, 2014 by Bunneh3000 in News

The Gaming Precision Podcast bet could be coming to a close very soon! Or could it?

Not too long ago, Best Buy and Walmart reduced the price of the Xbox One from $500 to $450. Many other retailers are also dropping their price to the $450 price point but for some reason Gamestop has decided not to budge. When Microsoft was asked officially by Polygon about this they responded saying that the drop is not an official one and that other retailers are free to set the price to whatever they’d like.


An official statement to Ars Technica had the following to say:

This is not a price drop on Xbox One. The Microsoft retail stores often set prices and run promotions in line with the rest of the retail industry, ensuring that its customers always get a good value for the devices and services purchased from the stores. The current online and physical Microsoft retail store price is not reflective of an MSRP price drop on Xbox One, which is still priced at $499 USD.]

For a moment, the Microsoft Store was holding a sale for the Titanfall bundle where a coupon code was required to receive the deal. That only lasted for a short while during the week of the game’s launch. Amazon had a coupon code that dropped the price even further to $400 for a short while but currently has the Titanfall bundle listed at $499 again. Target is even shown to have the deal ongoing but is listed as a ‘temporary price cut’.

Either way, this seems like a good time to get in on the deal. The console plus a free digital download of Titanfall is pretty sweet considering what early adopters paid.
