The Microsoft Store is giving away a free game to those who buy an Xbox One bundle today, according to the retailer's online listings.
Good for consumers Sony put it on Microsoft so bad because they are going above and beyond to get market share back lol Ive been tempted several times.
Thanks for reminding us how Sony put it to Microsoft so bad that this deal was born. Thanks Sony for this deal
^^^ And you have that many bubbles?!
It's sarcasm mate...
That was a obvious sarcasm... Wth lol
Got to win that Dec NPD I see. Truly a great time to jump in if you were on the fence.
That's a deal right there. If you're a gamer, you wouldn't hesitate.
Is of bought this but lol I got my X1 Black Friday for $75! Now it sits beside my wii u and ps4
You can't deny the effect Playstation is giving to Microsoft, some of the very few times, customers actually win
Sony is the only corporation that can compete against MS despite MS & the ADVANTAGE they have with more money to burn because of all the Talented studios Sony has & support they have. What sets MS & Sony apart is Sony is more open to smaller indie devs and even though MS & their die hard fanatics might think of these small teams as nothing major. Believe it or not these small indie teams will become the next Naughty Dogs, Rockstar, Bungie. While MS is more focused on securing AAA 3rd party exclusives & Cloud, Sony is supporting these small indie devs because they know these guys are the future & can be acquired at a more affordable price. Its smart business if u ask me because Sony gives their studios alot of freedom to create their dream projects. This is why I believe Sony will always have a big impact in the gaming industry.
They both are supporting indie games and they both are securing 3rd party exclusives.
shloobmm3 Your right but im talking about u can see that out of these 2 corporations they may both do similar things like securing 3rd party exclusives and have indie support but u can see where both corporations are, "FOCUSING" on. its clear Sony is going hard to really get as much indie support as they can whil MS is trying to wow ppl with the same Tactics they have always done with TF & TR. That tactic is great but if your main competitor continues to outsell u then to me their just wasting money instead of investing it in acquiring more studios but hey I guess thats how u get when u have all that money.
If you plan or thinking about buying an XO better do it before Jan.
something tells me these prices will remain even after the holidays. Classic marketing maneuver "going out of business everything must go" so that people rush to buy in fear that the sale will end. Come January MS will announce that the price is permanent once they see how much the price drop helped them gain some ground in the console war. Just my opinion tho, not trying to claim something here
$349 will be the permanent price. Sony can't match it and with the included games it's such an excellent value. Xbox One has been selling extremely well the past few weeks.
PS3 always had a higher price tag than the 360 and still outsold it. It will be the same this gen.
The PS3 and 360 are actually still neck n neck and last official announced numbers from me and Sony has the 360 still ahead http://www.gamespot.com/art... Xbox 360 at 84 million sold in July Last official PS3 numbers from Sony are 80 million last November, which came a month or so after Xbox 360 hit 80 million And before you start disagreeing just because you don't agree, show me something other then vgchartz or insiderp that tells me otherwise, something official
Xbox hasn't been selling well on it's own merits though. To MS that is a problem.
Well when MS basically halves the original price of the xbone by including free games I would expect sales to pick up.
Check this out. E3 299 diskless x1 and maybe ps4. Love the competition.
They don't need to match it their still selling better than the xbox. And who cares if they can't match it because it's terrible for a business to do all these price cuts and adding extra games just to get sales and it's barely 1 year since released.
If these consoles are only about gaming as some people say on this site, it's becoming less and less apparent why the PS4 is outselling the Xbox One at this point other than pure bias or misinformation about the policies that were reverted over a year ago. Games are on par quality wise and have been for a while, plenty of supported apps, the controversial Kinect is optional now, and it's at $350 for the kinectless version. I'm not by any means saying the PS4 doesn't deserve it's success, quite the contrary. I'm just wondering what crucial changes Microsoft must implement to still prove to people the Xbox One is a great value for the money at this point before you have to consider that hating on the Xbox One may just be the cool thing to do at this present time.
Don't fool yourself into thinking multiplats are at parity now. I don't have a problem with the xbone, but I do have a very big problem with MS. I can't support them after what they tried t do to my beloved hobby. I think the PS4 is selling on it's brand recognition. Sony is known for always delivering the games the whole way through the generation, where as MS tried to get away with the bare minimum half way through last generation til the end.
@captainobvious878 I know multiplatform games generally perform better on the PS4 and I haven't fooled myself into thinking otherwise, but the majority of my friends along with other causal gamers have a hard time discerning between 900p and 1080p. Depending on who you ask, that is a very negligible difference for the vast majority of gamers which happen to be causal gamers. As far as what Microsoft tried to do to your hobby, I'm sure you remember the issues with the PS3. Both companies have had blunders so to pretend as if Microsoft is the root of all evil isn't a fair argument. You are right though, Microsoft really needs to prove this generation that they will support the system with great games throughout it's lifespan. All far they're doing great but I just hope they listened and do repeat that same mistake.
nvm im not here to start crap but good move on ms.
Completely off topic, but I had to send my X1 in a week ago, due to my Sunset disc not reading, and occasional noise. Not only did they have the replacement to me within roughly 1 week, it was also completely new! Like, new serial number and everything! All for a sometimes-noisy disc drive. I was impressed.
it's always nice when you get customer service like that.
Oh, dude! I've been winning customer service lottery lately! In GTA, I permanently lost my 1M$ Adder, due to hackers somehow un-insuring it. (apparently they use hacked-stick-bombs) I was able to correspond with R* within days, and receive a full refund. I also convinced the rep to deposit an extra $400,000 so I could repeat the requirements for American Dream trophy, that has been glitched since launch. (if you buy property from the realestate signs, not website) Woo hoo!
