XB1 + Forza code = $399 @ Amazon

I imagine this might be a mistake on Amazon's part [they will of course honor it] but it would mean that the deal is actually as limited as it takes Amazon to realize the mistake

If this is up for multiple days, I'm not sure what to make of that

So will day one buyers get $100 dollars back now?
Why would we? Or better yet, why should we? I don't expect my $20-40 back on games 6 months after launch. I paid a premium to have the console at launch and I'm fine with that
because I can't change it and also its just a gaming console


Also, too bad there are no ways of getting a $399 Titanfall bundle in Canada, I have a bunch of friends who would bite.

All of this is really a slap in the face to people who bought the console in the last week and a half. Very tempting price. Wondering if MS will just do an official price drop soon.

Probably doing anything they can to win the month of March. They know the shitstorm that would ensue if the PS4 outsold it.

They already gave the day one people $50 dollars back.


If you sell your Kinect, and Forza you get your Xbone for $250! That's AMAZINGGGGGG

Microsoft will probably do a price drop soon. Unless this is like the Wii U and it's just stores trying to get rid of stock.
I can't help but think that they're doing an unofficial price drop to test the waters before they go ahead and admit that $499 was too much and make the official price $399-449.

Either that, or Walmart wanted to run a nice sale, and everyone else is going crazy.

This is getting crazy. Is Microsoft ultimately paying the $100 difference or are retailers so desperate to move the system that they are willing to take such a hit? Will it hit $299 by Autumn?

The final nail in the coffin of home consoles releasing at $500-$600 is every so close. That won't be happening again after difficulties MS and Sony went through/are going to through, right?

Tempting price, but just not software that I'm interested in right now.

It sucks, but that's the risk when you buy anything, in that it can drop in price or go on sale the next day or week.
