You Can Now Get Xbox One Titanfall Bundle for $450 at Walmart

Although Xbox One was launched for a higher price and Microsoft have had their fair share of criticism for that; the price of the console has been discounted on various occasions since then and one of the most lucrative offers has been the Xbox One Titanfall bundle. (TitanFall, Xbox One)

Wow, sweet deal.

Lower prices are great.

Price is ONE of the main factors making me hold off on an XB1 purchase at this time. Give me some more games that I prefer (RPGs, Action Adventure) and a better price and I'm picking up an XB1 also.

Apparently you are not the only one. The Walmart bestseller list may be painful for some to view. In the console sales races two different Wii Mini bundles are outselling the X1 at Walmart. And the PS4 and PS3 sit at spots 1 and 2 above them.

This could mean the Titanfall bundle did not sell well at wallmart and they are trying to get rid of them.

Edit,

Standard Edition also have the price drop. Hmmmm... price drop incoming?

Actually the PS4 doesn't have much wiggle room at all. Sony basically priced it rock bottom. Down the road they might be able to lower the price with production cost reductions but not currently.

Sony has no wiggle room. As of now they make money on the PS4, but just. So if they drop the price it will bring every PS4 purchased into the red.

Also a retailer discounting something is not the same as a price cut. Lots of times it has nothing to do with the item discounted. They do it in an effort to drive traffic so other areas can see a boost.

"Actually the PS4 doesn't have much wiggle room at all. Sony basically priced it rock bottom."

"Sony has no wiggle room."

You two dont have access to Sonys internal accounts so you wouldnt know.

Truth
mhunterjr  +   407d ago
Why would Sony lower their price when they are selling out at the current price? How would it benefit then in any way?
Charybdis  +   407d ago
Don't think it will become a price war between the two companies. I wouldn't say the ps4 hasn't got any 'wiggle room' however Microsoft does has a resource advantage in a potential price war. In the end for a console pricing matters but games matter even more.
djplonker  +   407d ago
I did say WHEN THE XBOX REACHES PS4 PRICE thats still another price drop or two away!
likeaboss302  +   407d ago
@MasterCornholio

I do know that Sony is having major financial issues and can't take a hit on PS4.
ThePope  +   407d ago
It was announced Sony makes about $30 on each PS4. MS makes more.
likeaboss302  +   407d ago
It helps increase the install base which makes the platform more attractive to developers. The biggest complaint about the Xbox One has been the price and it seems MS is trying to address that.
Evilsnuggle  +   407d ago
THe biggest complaint with xbone is weak hardware not price. That xBone is over priced for its preformance it can't run graphically intense games At 1080p or 60fps. The xbone will always have problems with running powerful game engines in high resolution because of weak hardware. The xbone will never run graphically intense games at 1080p 60fps never. What most core gamers want form next-gen is game that have next-gen graphics and next-gen resolution and frame rate. I don't want to play games at last generation resolution or frames rates . Xbone will never run games in 1080p 60fps it's hardware is to weak. Both the PS4 and xbone will improve the xbone will run games at higher resolution . All the PS4 games are already in 1080p. So the PS4 improvements will increase its frame-rates. I posted a article that ND is working on optimizing PS4 memory system and ND said that the PS4 can easily run games at 1080p 60fps. Look at infamous SS true next-gen the PS4 has been out 4 months . This is the start of this gen look at infamous SS. The Order 1886 has the best graphics on any platform PC or consoles. I have never seen anything like the Order 1886 gameplay that on consoles.
Price drop will not save the Xbone. Weak hardware and the kinect has doomed the xbone. Sell cuts will help but xbone will be competing For second place with the wiiU.
As usual The xbone disciples Always push disagree but never explain why I am wrong. Please don't tell me about forza 5 or sport games . Forza 5 has static graphic That means that there not of things moving to render. Sport games are on empty environments And don't take a lot of GPU power to render. When xbone can run a open world game in 1080p 60fps let me know. Deep Down is a gorgeous open world game running at 1080p 60fps on PS4 .

I'm not reading that garbage wall of text. It's probably all trolling as usual, because that's all you do.
kewlkat007  +   407d ago
Wasn't Xbox one breaking even or very close to it..I feel like MS does have wiggle room they are just seeing how much they can sell before it really drops $100 dollars.
MrKrispy  +   407d ago
no ms make more per each console its sony that barely makes a profit for each console
TheFallenAngel  +   407d ago
My brother was pissed when MS announced the xbone bundle with titanfall a week after he bought his.
likeaboss302  +   407d ago
I bought the PS4 and XB1 at launch. While I certainly would have liked to have saved some money, I've been enjoying both since November. It's the risk one takes as an early adopter.

I'm not mad about these early price drops,first theWii U now the xbox.But I am wiser and will try to wait 6 month to a year to buy the next round of consoles.I should has followed the advice of the song 'Game launch rock' on Youtube it says it all.lol
BattleTorn  +   407d ago
I bought both on launch too.

But honestly, if I was in the market to buying either atm, I'm fairly certain price point wouldn't be my deciding factor.

Then again, it never was, hence why I got both

walmart basically sets the retail price of the consoles anyways

Great price for those that are looking to buy the XB1/Titanfall bundle. With this bundle, it is basically cheaper than a PS4 if you subtract the $60 game.

MasterCornholio  +   407d ago
Strange its only the Xbox One that received a price cut not the PS4. And if you were Canadian you would have benefited from being an early adopter ever since the increased the price of the console.

Allsystemgamer  +   407d ago
If you were a Canadian early adopter you would have benefitted from being able I get one period lol. I'm Canadian. Not a single retailer in my area, I live near Toronto, has had a ps4 nearly 2 months. It's like sony forgot that Canada has people. Almost everyone I know wants a ps4 but they're not shipping them here. Meanwhile all the xbox ones sit of the shelves.
king_of_N4G  +   407d ago
Um, how is it strange when the PS4 is still in high demand? Why would anyone lower its price?

I'm really getting sick and tired of your stealth trolling against MS.
kewlkat007  +   407d ago
I noticed...
Audiggity  +   407d ago
Because you are an early adopter, like I am, there is a special place for you in the eyes of retailers and manufacturers.

We drive innovation by supporting those who innovate.

It's a never-ending cycle in the technology space. You could look back and say "Why did I???" but, it's ingrained, don't even try to change, enjoy the bleeding edge so long as you can afford it. It's fun to have all the new $hit.

This means that Walmart was not able to sell the Titanfall bundle in significant numbers at $500. Either Microsoft is having a really hard time selling the XB1, or they're trying to make sales skyrocket.
Either way, a deal this good this soon after launch isn't good for those first adopters.
mhunterjr  +   407d ago
No apparently this bundle is selling well. Many stores are participating in a race to the bottom in an effort to get you into their store. Wal-Mart, with its deep pockets, it's a monster when it comes to loss-leading...

They have no problem undercutting target and games stop on the hardware. They are all about volume. Once a large number of folks choose the Wal-Mart deal, they'll make up the losses in peripheral and software sales.

I'm sure MS would rather have Sony's sales. But they are killing it in terms of revenue, and it's the retailers who are taking the hit instead of MS. They'll have to officially drop the price to keep momentum, but they'd probably take solace in being within 25% of Sony's sales while being 25% more expensive.

They also just introduced a game trade-in service. I can't imagine those go hand-in-hand.
GW212  +   407d ago
Exactly... let's not forget that no one has ever walked into Walmart and left with ONLY what they need. That place is a death trap for off-the-cuff purchases.

Went in there one time to buy some towels. Most expensive $500 towels I've ever purchased.
Audiggity  +   407d ago
Yeah, you are 100% correct in terms of the race to the bottom. This is moving consoles. And it will only move more as the price drops.

Besides, where else can you buy an Xbox One while enjoying an overweight woman in a bathing suit with skid marks painting her toe nails while eating Cheetos? (Something I actually witnessed during one of the two times I ever went inside of a Walmart)

P.S. She hadn't yet purchased the nail polish or the Cheetos. If I were a betting man, I'd say those items never made it to a register.

Viva la Walmart!

well blow me down with a feather i did not know that lol but then you need some form of subscrition to play multiplayer on other consoles also so what's your point
GW212  +   405d ago
Technically I don't have to pay anything because I bought it for my buddy. But I see your point.

I have both consoles. Prefer my PS4 for various reasons. I have both a PSN and Live account. I think it's by far the least expensive part of owning a console so not a big deal to me.
metalmatters  +   404d ago
I agree $550 just to play TF? its a little bit too much not to mention the game is Multiplayer only, when do you cross the line for value?
jasondracd  +   407d ago
hmmm.... should totally do it now. But im still gonna wait until after E3. This is a good deal though.
Kingoftherodeo  +   407d ago
This isnt just walmart being walmart. Like any other product they have they offer a much better deal than the competition. All those xboxones and ps4s they have they already belong to walmart.microsoft already got paid for those, walmart being a big retailer. Is trying to move taking the quantity approach. when you see microsoft actually lower the price on the xboxone then its an actual price cut. For those wondering sony makes 18 bucks for every ps4. Microsoft makes 28 for evry xbox1. Thats before giving stores their price cut.So sony could be making 10 dollars for each ps4. And xbox 20 depending on the price cut they give to stores.xbox1 has more wiggle room than sony for a price drop. Then again each company could work out better deals.
ZombieDust  +   407d ago
About the same exact price on Amazon. Amazon is tax free and free shipping with free prime trial... Best of all, you get to avoid going to Walmart.

cell989  +   407d ago
still not enticing enough for me lol. I just dont have the space for an xbone in my Hometheater setup, it would take too much space, and all for one game? no, Ill keep waiting till a nice catalog of exclusives is built
Audiggity  +   407d ago
Theoretically, assuming you have a good receiver (mine apparently sucks) the HDMI pass through should work for your cable box, which would free up a port and make room for your XB1.

TF is good times.
metalmatters  +   404d ago
the xbox0ne is a bit bulky and if you want to add the tv features, you will space fro the cablebox as well, then you have to consider the space for your PS4 and PS3 and Wiiu and wireless router, and AV receiver, and center speaker and avermedia capture unit. Soon you have yourself a nice cluster #&$( of wires in the back of your tv/setup lol. Where can you store the games and all those remotes and controllers too? so many devices lol
