Amazon UK selling Xbox One Titanfall bundle for £349, same price as PS4

A major retailer in the UK is offering what may be the lowest price yet for a new Xbox One console in that part of the world. Amazon UK recently cut the price of the Xbox One Titanfall bundle, with a free digital download code for the popular first person shooter, down to just £349.

The price cut brings the Xbox One down to the same price of Sony's rival PlayStation 4 console in the UK for the first time. The reduction is just for the Xbox One Titanfall bundle. The standard Xbox One is priced at £379 at Amazon UK. Another retailer in that country, Asda, is also selling the console with Titanfall at £349.

This news comes as some retailers in the US have cut the price of the Xbox One down to $449.99, $50 below its normal price of $499.99 but still $50 higher than the PS4. Microsoft's online store still has the standard and Titanfall versions of the Xbox One at that price. A few days ago, Target offered a free 12 month subscription to Xbox Live Gold to its own $449.99 deal but that extra ended very quickly.

Still too much as it ONLY comes with HDMI ports. I'd have to add the cost of a new TV, which I'm not going to do until my current Sony Trinitron packs up ....and it's not showing any signs of it doing that yet.

Desperation play. It's not selling in significant numbers anywhere but in the US. If this keeps up, they will have to give the console away!

I bought an Xbox One from Amazon on Friday and it is going to be returned.

- Menu system is awful and convoluted to navigate
- Kinect hardly works at all for voice commands
- Overall system feel is laggy (switching apps, etc)
- Gaming performance isn't very good at all. Titanfall for example has awful framerate drops and screen tear, and it isn't even a particularly good-looking game or running at 1080p
- The rumble motors in the triggers make this awful plasticy rumble sound as if it is rumbling against the plastic casing which is particularly noticible in Forza and makes it sound really cheap

I could go on there was very little that impressed me about this console, it is practically unusable and not at all what you would expect even at that discounted price.

I don't think it is at all. Microsoft promised a "next generation" console, and they released a buggy, half finished product that is only now starting to get the features that the 360 had for years. The UI is horrible, the Kinect STILL doesn't work reliably, and the games look noticeably worse on the One than the competition's console.

i got my xbox one at Christmas and I hate it. The menu system is hard for me to navigate, it constantly crashes (maybe I need to perform a factory reset), the voice commands are hit and miss, the ability to power my TV and sound system on is a nightmare where they power off and on opposite to the console lol, and the games I have are boring. Hopefully kinect rivals will be its saving grace at least then the kids can play on it. If not, I'll sell it on ebay.

When you get a chance you should try out both consoles both are awesome but I prefer the XO over the PS4 only because of its included media features and the Kinect. Its awesome to have your TV turn on and off with your xbox without having to do a thing.

Eh, I know it isn't *exactly* the same, but my logitech harmony remote says, "hi" (in regards to turning off and on everything at the same time without having to do a thing).

You know for what people seem to think is just temporary sales they sure are seeming to last forever. Friend of mine last Monday went to target and they were listed at 499 but when he checked out it rang up as 450 and they gave him a free 12 month xblive. US prices of course

Slow sales -> Lower prices -> Reduce inventory. Smart move by Amazon.

Microsoft was nuts to think they were justified in charging the extra 100 bucks to begin with.

the 4 weeks before march 22nd,xbox one was the best selling console in the u.k. we don't know the recent weeks numbers,but the price cut may be to keep the momentum going strong forward.
