Priced at $399, Amazon are ready to take your money for the upgraded Xbox One along with Halo: The Master Chief Collection. - The Games Cabin
I regret buying the Xbox one 2 months ago. I'm not saying it's a bad console at all just saying that if I waited longer I would have gotten a much better deal.
How would that been better deal? You can get 1TB usb drive for the $50 more.
I wouldn't have to pay another 50-100$ for Tb hdd. But I see your point.
Dont feel too bad. I got mine last Xmas and missed a tonne of deals, post purchase.But I was just happy to own the 1TB AW limited edition. Now I just play my games and kick back while MS roll out the good stuff :) Still got 300GB left on the internal drive, but I aint stressing. I got a 4TB external drive connected for the years to come! I just wanna say to anybody who is buying an X1 this year...you are in for a treat, no matter what bundle you get. The dashboard takes a few mins to get used to...oh..and once you 'snap'...you'll never go back ;) Now if you'll excuse me...my boys are starting to show up online and we got two more days of this seige of neverwinter to deal with. See ya'll online!
Yeah that's always the way it goes sadly. Nothing you can do about it. Just be happy with what you got!
I bought mine at launch for 500 Euros move on just enjoy the console don't regret.
External is better, trust me dude. You can take ALL your games to a friends house and away you go...
@Rimeskeem Dude don't regret... you just need to find the better deals I got a 3TB WD HDD $29+ tax at Best Buy Deal of the Day for $89 and used my BB Gamer Club Reward Certificates to bring it down to $29+ tax. You just have to look out for the better deal. 1Tb are on the cheap, don't trade up for the new console all your really missing is the Matte finish,the update Controller and who don't have Halo MCC.
I bought mine online on Black Friday and got a free game and slight discount, then few months ago bought a 4TB external drive, i'm good for a while, but to anyone buying one, get the bigger hard drive, you will need it eventually.
Lost of momentum for MS going into E3..The games should just be even better for them.
Unbelievable.....was waiting to buy this from amazon in UK, Microsoft have given GAME exclusivity for the console til 20th June for the price of £349? (fuck that) since when did consoles get exclusive outlet? Industry is getting worse
GAME have had exclusivity for tons of things for ages. And then charge way more than any of their competitors prices, asda is at least a tenner cheaper 99% of the time!
I understand games & such..but consoles? I always buy from amazon mainly because i don't pay VAT... that's £50 off that price tag straight away. There is no need for exclusivity for this when it releases everywhere in the states on the 16th. I don't mind waiting, just dont understand microsoft's reason to do this in UK
That's just business mate, it's crap, but at least it's not too long away... just wait it out and don't buckle to GAME's demands!
your right, was actually thinking of getting The MCC xbox 500gb bundle + a seagate 2TB external for £290 on amazon..hmmm not sure if i should wait til after e3 for a price drop on console
Probably a better deal doing it that way to be honest... It's what I'd do
It's great they're responding to fan feedback and cutting the price to boost sales. I missed out on some amazing deals getting it day one, but it's good to see them adressing the main complaints to try and kickstart a comeback to close the gap with sony sales. I'm biased towards xbox, but as a gamer I'd like it if sony didn't get over 2:1 ahead, as third party support for me as an xbox gamer will dwindle. Good to see them making an effort though
Man, Microsoft's pulling out all the stops pre-E3. Hope their first-party showing's just as good.
Take my money and be quick about it .lol
An option to think about and for those who wish they had waited on a 1TB model... it actually can be better going with the less expensive 500GB XO, then putting that money into a RAID 1 enclosure and two drives for preventing data loss during a disk failure. RAID 5\10 can be faster, though with most RAID 1 enclosures, the disks are not dependent on the RAID logic the way they are with RAID 5\10, so you can take either disk out, such as if the enclosure stops working, then hook up either drive to the XO with a SATA drive USB adapter. Here's one that works with XO. http://www.amazon.com/Media... @Disagrees, I don't know how anyone can sleep well at night with over 1TB of data loss possible and potentially weeks of frustration looming, if the disk fails. PSUs and hard disks are what fail most in computers... they're practically guaranteed to fail, given enough time. SSD is becoming a good option, though a RAID enclosure is less expensive than SSD for the same or much more space, and the first generations of SSDs were scary in how they could just brick one day without warning (I generally only use Samsung SSDs now, the 850 EVOs are great... to maximize space, my systems use 3 of them in RAID-5 for 1500MB reads and 850 writes without requiring a RAID card... on Intel chipsets, only writes are faster at 1250MB with 3 disk RAID 0... the chipset maxes at 1500MB reads). If wanting the ultimate in performance and reliability, get two RAID 5 enclosures (second for failover) and use RAID 5 to maximize space while the SSDs maximize the enclosure's throughput... I think anyone that has lots of money should go that route, if they're serious about collecting XO games. What XO really needs is a backup feature similar to PS4, especially since it's better designed for that, because PS4 requires an ugly cable sticking out the front when leaving a backup drive connected.
Pretty good deal. Would like to see another game added in though like SSO, or maybe I'm just being greedy lol Not that it matters to me but for others who haven't jumped in yet. Tbh I'd wait till the 1tb console xmas bundles, they will be awesome I would imagine.
