The lights are on
Microsoft has effectively lowered the price of the Xbox One for a limited edition Titanfall bundle. This $499 package doesn’t have any bells and whistles (the included hardware is aesthetically identical to other retail models), but $70 worth of pack-ins are worth mentioning.
In addition to the standard black console, controller, and Kinect, the bundle comes with a digital copy of Titanfall and one month of Xbox Live. The bundle goes on sale alongside Titanfall on March 11. We've also received confirmation that Microsoft will be dropping the price of the Xbox One in the UK from £429 ($712) to £399 ($663) beginning February 28.
Our TakeThis bundle skirts the price drop conversation since it keeps the retail price the same, but for intents and purposes, the Xbox One will be $430 for a limited time. This is the closest thing to a sale you’re going to find, so if you’re planning on getting an Xbox One for Titanfall (and don’t mind the digital version), you had best move quickly.
If you’re wondering why this bundle doesn’t include the limited edition Titanfall controller, it’s because it likely utilizes stock on hand. The only changes are the inclusion of two vouchers and a different box.
