Microsoft Slashes Xbox One Bundle Price

Microsoft Slashes Xbox One Bundle Price
The company is dropping the price of its game console in an attempt to compete more effectively with Sony.

(CCM) — Microsoft has cut the price of its Xbox One bundles in an attempt to lure gamers away from the Sony PlayStation 4 juggernaut which dominates the console market.

Following its deep Black Friday discounts, Microsoft has launched a "limited time" sale with $50 off all of its Xbox One bundles including the Xbox One S with Battlefield V (reduced to $250) and the high end Xbox One X with PUBG (reduced to $450), Engadget is reporting. The $50 discount is not as great as its Black Friday offers, but the company is hoping that it is enough to persuade some people to choose an Xbox over Sony's market-leading PS4 Pro console, which still undercuts the Xbox One X by $50.

To sweeten the Xbox One deal further, Microsoft is cutting the price of some of its wireless controllers by $10, and is also offering a $50 discount on its Xbox Game Pass. Anyone buying a three month subscription to Xbox Live Gold will also receive a $10 credit at the Microsoft Online Store.

In 2017 Nintendo launched its Switch console, and this was the best-selling video game product between Thanksgiving and Cyber Monday in 2018. By the end of 2018 the Switch console is expected to beat Microsoft's Xbox One to the number two spot in the console market.
