So I thought when the NPD numbers hit that MS would have to consider a price drop, or think about including a game with purchase. I thought maybe they would wait a month or two, see if February numbers were the same, and see if Titanfall could turn it around for March. Well, retailers apparently aren't willing to wait that long, and have taken it upon themselves to play "let's make a deal."
Walmart is currently offering a free copy of COD: Ghosts, BF4, Madden25, or NBA2k14 with the purchase of an Xbox One console. And Target is simply offering a 50 dollar gift card.
The PS4 has been continuously harder to find, it's is still selling more than the Xbox One, and now retailers are resorting to gift cards and free games for a console that is only about three months into it's lifespan.
Just how worried should Microsoft be?
