Microsoft seems to like the number $349. During the run-up to Christmas, Microsoft cut the price of its Xbox One (sans Kinect) from $399 to $349. As a result, sales soared and the Xbox One was able to outsell Sony’s PlayStation 4 for two months straight. For a brief two-week period, Microsoft reset the Xbox One’s price to $399, but once again dropped it to $349 on January 16 and hasn’t looked back since.
Now that everyone has seemingly gotten used to $349 as the new “regular” price for the Xbox One, it’s time for retailers to start chipping away at that price to give gamers an even better deal. Thankfully, Amazon has stepped up to the plate, and while it isn’t exactly what you’d call a price cut, the online retail giant is tossing in a lot of “value adds” to go along with your $349 outlay.
Amazon’s new Xbox One Value Bundle includes:
- Xbox One Console
- Extra Xbox One Wireless Controller
- Assassin's Creed Unity (digital download)
- Assassin's Creed Black Flag
- Wolfenstein: The New Order
According to Amazon, this represents a roughly $89 savings compared to buying everything individually. We don’t know how long Amazon’s deal is going to last, but if you’re in the market for a new Xbox One, now is as good a time as ever to whip out your credit card and start punchin’ in those digits.
