It slightly is for sure. $450 would have been a better price as it comes with the Halo 5 LE version of the game.

Still going to sell like crazy due to it being such a good looking console and it's Halo.

I know a lot of people are also expecting Microsoft to prepare another price cut in response to Sony's likely upcoming first price drop. This bundle probably means there's no more XB1 price drops any time soon.

Also something I forgot to mention, there's a also a fairly custom Blue Forza 6 Limited Edition with 1TB coming this year at $399. There's definitely a a bit of price gouging here because of the Halo name IMO.

-They could probably scrape by with no price but if Sony is smart they'll do at least a $50 drop in price.

-Yeah its #2 on Amazon right now but that's because when something because available is shoots straight to the top fairly quickly. I'm not saying the console won't sell, I'm saying it won't really turn the tide against the PS4 at that price.

Is it likely though? Sony's ps4 is selling well enough for them not to have to drop the price. I don't see it happening this year.

dont worry, u will prolly be able to buy x1+halo 5+some bonus for ~300$

showtimefolks1105d ago

yes should have been 399 to really make an impact. but 449 would have been alright too

499 in my humble opinion is a little high

Put simply, no. The bundle comes with a custom spartan locke 1tb xb1 and controller. Halo 5 guardians and the limited edition items and the standard chat headset. Last time I checked, it was #2 on Amazon already. Great value for such a sweet looking custom console

Horrible value lol for $500 you can pick up the forza bundle & a handful of X1 games . The system looks cool but nothing shocking . Halo or not .

499 dollars was too much when i first heard the price. On Amazon the console contents include a uniquely designed Spartan themed Steel Book containing a full game download of Halo 5: Guardians, Warzone REQ Bundle, FOTUS-class armor and multiplayer emblem.

Features a Guardian model by Metal Earth, Halo: The Fall of Reach - Animated Series, and Spartan Locke's Classified Orders.

I guess this has to factored in to the price the Forza console bundle had nothing extra.

Yes, but it looks great.
