This is simply a retailer specific drop, not exactly a price cut...

 

Zavvi/The Hut uses the same distributors, prices are often identical across the sites.

It's also very different in the UK. The big 3 don't set prices, retailers do. Eventually this could/will probably lead to others following or including an extra game/accessory to sweeten their offer.

why does the news anymore run with a sale price at a specific retailer as a company is cutting prices OMG its all over now! BS they do now days... just because one places put something on sale doesn't mean 1) MS is failing and 2) Mean it's a system wide price cut...

Losing the UK at launch was a sore loss for MS (with the XB1 releasing first), especially after the 360's success. This was needed, but I'm sure the early adopters will be a little butthurt.

 

Its expected, but it would be better if they put in a physical copy. It needs up to 40GB for digital.

I think it'll be a download code. Just from the size of the box, I'm not sure it could include a DVD box without changing the design. But I agree, it's really annoying it's not a physical copy. Only saving grace from my X1 nightmare was I got a physical copy of Forza in the end. Couldn't care less if Fifa was digital :P

So tempted by this. Wasn't really interested in Fifa or Forza, but Titanfall!

It is definitely a download code.

 

By the way noticed this in the American PR, so no luck for the states long term just now,

 

Of course, this is an incredible deal, only offered to celebrate the launch of Titanfall, for a limited time.

Hope there is some damage control for early adopters in UK. I fancy a free game :p :laugh:

Well for now at least, seems like MS is willing to cut prices in ways that dont include removing anything from the package. Bundling games or simply cutting the price are in use at the moment.

That's just the market taking advantage while they can. You have a handful of games worth buying with nothing on the calendar for months. Jack the price and rip everyone off is their intentions (N) I won't be buying any titles new until we see the old RRPs return.

 

Microsoft could definitely win a lot of hearts back with a free game though. 50% isn't really gonna cut it for me personally, I'm still paying out more when I've been screwed by an early price drop.

 

 

 

Yup, puts them in the same boat as Sony with losing money. Definitely makes the price war more interesting :p Wonder if it will be enough though :iiam:

 

GAME will probably refuse to sell the XB1 at

Wait, I thought Sony was making a small profit on the ps4 just as MS was on the X1?


As far as it being enough, probably not.

I would say that Microsoft owes nothing to people that bought the console before the price drop. Potential price drops are just another risk that the early adopters choose to accept in order to have the console earlier.

You're right they don't owe them anything, but they'll face massive criticism if they don't. 

 

I'm not too fussed, got a launch edition with FIFA, shortly after Dead Rising 3 (issue with my disc drive) and then a month of Live thrown in for good measure. If they do a bonus  (Y)

They did it with the original Xbox. You got a choice of games IIRC, granted the cut was bigger.
