It has been below 300EUR for a good while over here, dipping as low as 229EUR.

Let's see if it can hit 199.

By the way OP, UK store is showing £279.99, but it's for a bunch of consoles so it's not just a simple price cut.

That's quite the deal.

Always amazed how US pay 299$ aka no tax price.

We in Europe pay 20-22% tax, because 299€ is 333$ :)

so 10% difference :)

eerik9000: where?

I thought it was already $299?
Guess they want to sell as many as possible before they announce the slim model.

I would get one, but I want to see how the Windows 10 stuff is going to pan out, and even if they don't come through, I think I want to finally get a decent PC (something I haven't had since 2004).

Yeah, in France too. We even had sale in some shops selling it at 180€... So this "299€" this is not a big deal. :)

Unofficial price becomes official.

Bring on the Slim. I'm set with my Xbone Elites, but may consider picking up a Slim if they release an Elite Slim variant. If not, I'll probably wait until ScorpiONE before picking up another Bone (although I leave open the possibility that a killer trade-in deal could make me pull the trigger before then).

Unlikely related. Think about it. What big event is happening soon and what is likely to be announced?

The Slim. Yeah, that would make sense. Clearing old stock, which there probably is a fair bit of still in the channel, to make room for it.

I doubt they'll announce the Scorpio at E3.

Seems so far the consensus is this isn't enough of a cut. Doesn't bode well for the Scorpio and Neo prices....

Isn't this going to be a problem with this transition to the iterative model? Can't reduce the current price as low as would like meaning pricing the higher/newer model higher?

To the surprise of nobody, the temporary price drop wasn't so temporary. Even the gap between filled with gift cards and pack-in deals.

Is it a day that ends in Y? Sounds like a time for an Xbox One price cut. Don't see why MS keeps playing games with the pricing on this thing, they tried the same exact promotional lower price into higher price w/ extra bundling back down to lower price for reals last year and it didn't work then, won't work now. Just makes things confusing for consumers.

They had to do this move face the low sales and the imminent announce of Slim version at E3.
