Why Microsoft Needs to Keep The XBOX One Price at $349.99

MVGN writes "Currently Microsoft’s latest home console is retailing for $349.99. Ever since the XBOX One has dropped to that aggressive price, the system has been selling out at retail stores across the nation. Every time we enter a retail store, we notice that the system is now sold out and seems to be a general trend since the big price drop."

They need to keep it at that price to be competitive with the Ps4.

Agreed. They either need to keep it at $349 OR continue to offer at least one (if not two) free games if they raise the price back to $399. But I think that if they keep it at $349 and continue to gain market share here in the US, then that will force Sony to lower their price for the PS4 to match the XB1 in order to remain competitive.

Either way is good for me. Getting my PS4 this holiday so the XB1 will hopefully still be a very good deal when I'm ready to buy it next year.

They won't go back up to $400. Calling it a limited time offer is just a ploy to get people to buy now rather than wait.

Come next year, Microsoft will come up with some spin to make it sound like they're keeping the $350 price as a result of listening to their fans.

It's "Limited" only to make the end of the year quota!

This is a common marketing ploy.

Microsoft having the $50 price difference is a huge selling point. I love my Xbox One and do prefer it over my PS4 but I won't deny the fact that if they keep it at $400 that it will be a shot in the foot. They have already gathered in a ton of people due to the new price and it'd be in their best interest to keep the price below the PS4 in order to stay competitive. As long as MS can keep the great games coming, keeping the price competitive, and continue with the constant updates I believe they will do just fine even if they sell less than Playstation.
