Good news for anyone who has been looking to pick up an Xbox One console, but didn't want to shell out the $400 for it: Microsoft has discounted all Xbox One consoles - including the Kinect and video game bundles - by $50.
This discount means that the Xbox One without a Kinect now costs only $350, as does the Assassin's Creed bundle, and the Sunset Overdrive bundle. Xbox One consoles including a Kinect are now only $450, down from $500.
The deal is being offered across all official platforms, including Amazon and the Microsoft Store, and even in brick-and-mortar retailers like Target. However, Target's website lists the Xbox One consoles as having a 'temp price cut', which may be an indication that Microsoft doesn't plan on keeping this discount going in the long run. In fact, Microsoft previously indicated that the price cut would likely be only valid for the holidays.
Xbox One owners and potential suitors can look forward to what is perhaps this year's biggest exclusive coming next month with Halo: The Master Chief Collection. The collection will include every main series Halo game since Halo: CE, as well as a wealth of bonus features and content, which may put the diehard Halo fan over the edge to finally pick up an Xbox One.
Earlier last week we detailed how you could pick up an Xbox One console for only $332.50 on top of the $50 discount. However, if you haven't bought an Xbox One yet, you may want to hold off a little while longer for the Xbox One Slim - which is said to have a 'smaller, cooler processor', amongst other features. And since the smaller processor and redesigned innards could mean lower manufacturing costs, the Xbox One Slim might cost even less than the traditional Xbox One console.
