Microsoft has recently announced a price drop for the Xbox One, set to start next week. This marks the second price drop since the launch of the console, as well as the first time the console has been priced lower than the PS4.
The price drop of $50 applies to all versions of the console, including the Assassin’s Creed bundle, Sunset Overdrive White bundle, and the Call of Duty bundle. This is great news for those looking to buy a new console for the holidays, as the Xbox One library is finally becoming populated with quality titles and worthwhile exclusives.
What remains to be seen is whether this price drop will finally allow the Xbox One to overtake the PS4 in sales, as the system has lagged behind since the launch of both systems. Either way, it is a win for consumers and should definitely move some units come the holiday rush.
The price drop lasts from next week to early January, so there is plenty of time to capitalize on the sale.
