Not surprised at the price cut at all, just surprised that it's a cut of only £30. I don't think this Titanfall bundle will do much beyond an initial rush. £400 is still too expensive for a console.

Yes but not for a next gen console with a

1080p kinect 2 camera
Titanfall game
Semi decent headset

I think its good value, when a last gen machine is about £200 without a game or camera
 
All of which only works as long as nobody else does the same thing driving prices through the floor.

And from the point of view of selling the damn thing, the headline price is still higher than PS4 for a less powerful console. MS truly are the masters of too little too late this generation...
Whatt.. this generation is not even 6 months in? there are still at least, mmm I dont know about 100 million potential customers up for grabs
 
Those early February UK figures must be scaring the shit out of Microsoft
Yup, they are giving away their flagship game for free on top of a price cut damn. MS are more concerned with getting the console into peoples hands than any potential sales of the game.
 
They give away their flagship for free. Dire straights for them right now. I don't think this will work either, could be wrong.
It's actually very smart, they probably had plans to drop the price to keep up with PS4 sales anyway but throwing in Titanfall will sell consoles. Dire straights is pushing it, more like just wanting to get their console into as many homes as possible early on. I think it's pretty clear that MS aren't going to just let the XB1 slide into a Wii U type situation, they're going to aggressively market this thing and make sure Sony don't get too far ahead early on which can only be a good thing.

I think some are getting a little ahead of themselves in sales terms, this generation is only months in, Sony have the momentum but it doesn't mean much in the grand scheme of it, Sony doing extremely well doesn't automatically mean MS is doing bad especially with Nintendo's market share seemingly up for grabs now.

Price parity with a PS4 and 1 game. and you also get kinect which you can put on ebay and get at least £50

So that would make it £345 -350 if you sold kinect and titanfall for the same price as a PS4 and if you really wanted to prove a point you could sell the titanfall game code and get at least £40 making the console £305 - 310 making it the cheapest next gen console.

Not bad at all
Why are people buying Kinect for XBone on eBay? Every console comes with it...

That seems like a bunch of hoops to jump through just for price parity with PS4. You end up with a system that has no specific distinction from the PS4 other than exclusives, and with lower specs. You sell off Titanfall, the "game of the generation" according to Microsoft, and you sell Kinect, a major feature the PS4 doesn't have.


I am a CheapAssGamer, for sure. I sell all my stuff off when I am done with it to invest in new games/consoles. But this seems like you are stripping the system down to it's undies just to get a similar price as the PS4.
 
If your average consumer in the US catches a whiff of this price cut in the UK, are they going to rush out and buy the Titanfall bundle in the states? Couldn't some potential buyers try to wait it out to see if the system gets a price cut in the US in the next couple of months?

LOL. Price parity is the same price on the retail shelf. They still have a long way to go.
 
Not a great value considering you could just spend $60 and get the game for the 360 instead.
Obviously some will find it good value and some wont, you could say that about anything.

but looking at what you get with the TF package as a stand lone item is good value in comparison to similar products.

From my point of view i'am looking to upgrade from my PS3 AND i WANT

A console with noticeably better visuals over last gen
will have the multplats from EA,take 2, activision, 2k,bethesda etc
a great online experience
exclusives games that I enjoy and wow me
motion gaming has me interested
its all about the games games games
792p is good enough for me the titanfall direct feed vids look very sharp on my TV

Yeah I did say ''if you wanted to prove a point''

Not everyone is gonna sell everything and the vast majority will keep all of it. In the real world people looking to buy a next gen system will be a buying a game with it and now its just a matter if they like Titanfall vs second son, Ryse vs KZ:SF, plants vs zombie vs Knack, 1080p/900p 30fps/60fps vs kinect + tv stuff.

There will be some that go PS4 and there will be some that go X1 people have different tastes.pepsi or coke (coke all the way)

Oh boy...
 
who buys a new console with no games?
Problem is that even with this great offer and big drop in price for UK market, they are still more expensive than PS4 bundles... which is more powerful console.

Sony has PS4 with Infamous for 15 GBP less.

Best thing for MS to happen would be PS4 being out of stock, like it is right now in the UK. Then people really dont get much choice and quite few might end up with XB1.

SHIIIIIIIIIT...

Translation anyone?
 
Ironically the last couple of people I know who picked up an Xbone did so dirt cheap on eBay.

Still this slight price cut is a start......., even if it is still miles from actually moving the needle on the Xbone in the UK.
