Techtorial: The Xbox One Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Limited Edition Bundle is now sold with $100 discount by a U.S-based retailer just a few weeks before Black Friday.
I have a feeling MS is going to love this coming holidays..
i'm not trying to troll, but... Ya see... slashing the price of your product in 40% on the first year isn't a good thing... I wonder, what's the money that Microsft will lose on each console? I doubt that they are profiting, the price is as low as the WiiU lol! ( if you include COD value in the pack)
I do not want to troll either, but I thought Sony did the same or something very similar with the Playstation 3. Sony did fine then. It was a bit bumpy at first but look at them now.
The main aim is to get consoles in homes. Microsoft can afford to cut the price to repair their image with consumers. The money is made on software.
Consoles have never been profitable that's not how they make money.
And that's not all. They are paying to give away and discount games. Both of which they are doing heavily right now. Xbox division is seriously lucky to have an endless money bucket. That's the only way they are keeping afloat. Sure, they'll make their money back on software sales; but the PS4 is making a profit on each console sold, as well as making a killing in software sales.
Outstanding value, if you're a SAMS Club member. Might be worth becoming a member? To answer your question: http://www.microsoft.com/In... "Xbox Platform revenue increased $538 million or 58%, due mainly to 102% higher volume and a 93% increase attributable to higher premium mix of consoles sold"
@Brazz MS has to make sure they have consoles in as many homes as possible and the holiday season is the biggest buying season for consoles where they can shift over 4 million units between November - December alone. NA is generally that largest contributor to those sales account for 3/5 of the total sales for the holiday period. MS is looking to gain as many sales as possible this holiday. They can still make the money back on software sales and XBLG, and over the years each of these XBO being sold for a possible loss will have turned into a profit through game sales and XBLG. So it's take a small loss now, and hope to make a good profit later.
The goal is to get more consoles in more peoples' hands.
This will sell alot of units. Just like that tlou/gta5 Ps4 bundle will have ppl foaming. Im happy to see all these good deals already!
Sold out already.
Now we talking. The XB0ne sold at its actual real value.
Are you forgetting this is 1TB with a new release game? It's just straight up excellent value for money. No amount of sly troll comments will change that fact
I got my 1TB bundle yesterday. It sure is sexy!
This game is great, the king has held the throne.
I want the gamescom MCC console bundle for this price and I want it now.
You get a 1 tb console with call of duty and you can buy Halo 1-4 completely remastered for $400 and some change..wow amazing deal..
its actually more, you have to factor in the the club membership cost required to purchase this.
Not if you have a Sam's Club membership already
Have you been in a Sam's Club before? A lot more value from your club membership than the savings you get from an XBOXONE.
At the rate this thing is going, M$ might as well hand out free Xbox ones as Xmas gifts
I have a big feeling halo tmcc bundle will hit black friday
Actually you also have to factor in taxes which are generally ~10%, meaning it's still closer to $400. But it's an excellent deal nonetheless, especially since WalMart and other retail vendors will be pushing this for $449.
haha! that was my reaction when I took it out the box. Trust me, its a looker!
holy shit! 150$ cheaper then what was announced
...Anddddd it's sold out -_-
I don't see how they could love it; especially since they are losing money with every sale. Price cuts, promos and give aways. If I see a disagree... I know it'll be from a fanboy.
Why should we the consumer care about any of that stuff as long as we get striking deals? No fanboy btw, PS4 owner that's on the borderline at the moment in buying a Xbox One.
I got mines upon release. It's a beautiful console/controller setup. The sound effects when your cut it off is a nice touch as well... Of course have a 1tb internal drive is amazing enough... Game on.
Xbox One certainly has one advantage over the PS4 this year, and that is price. Consumers will see a cheaper box than the competitor with a game included, and that should really boost sales
I have a feeling there will be SOMEONE selling either new PS4s or XB1s for less than 350 before the year is done. Just a guess but I wont be shocked if it happens.
