    Microsoft's getting aggressive this holiday season by temporarily cutting the price of Xbox One to $349. The deal begins on November 2 and runs through January 3, when the price will return to $399.

    The company is also offering a number of special edition bundles benefiting from the price drop, which the company outlined on its blog. There's a Sunset Overdrive bundle featuring a white console and a copy of the game for $349. Assassin's Creed fans can grab a separate bundle with Assassin's Creed: Unity and Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag for $349 (or $449 with Kinect). Finally, a Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare bundle sports a customized Xbox One console, a copy of the game, and a 1TB hard drive for $449.

    That's cool.

    But why is there no Master Chief Collection bundle? As a PC/PS owner, that's the one game/franchise that would make me buy an Xbox One this year. $349 is still a fair price for a new console though.

    I can pretty much promise that if Microsoft doesn't make one, Amazon, Best Buy, Gamestop, or someone will for Black Friday.

    $350 for a bundle that includes a $60 game is pretty crazy.

    I think the time for me to place an Xbox one next to the PS4 has come. Early reviews of Sunset Overdrive are looking positive, Forza Horizon 2 looks fantastic and Alexis and Drews' halo marathon has gotten me excited for the master chief collection. Now to decide which bundle makes the most sense.

    Yep, as soon as Sunset bundles are in transit for everyone, then they announce a price drop.

    With the Halo Collection coming out, there's enough good games on the console for me to buy it this holiday.

    This also reminds me how ps4 has essentially nothing when it comes to first party. Besides FH2 there's killer instinct, master chief collection, Sunset overdrive, dead rising 3.

    I know this reeks of desperation but to me the xbone just seems more desirable game wise, for the moment. Ps4 WILL have bloodborne, i'll give em that...

    Yeah, as someone who only has a PS4, I'm just pretending this holiday season doesn't exist and I'm waiting for February for Bloodborne, The Order (I think it looks cool), and Witcher 3.

    This is a great move by Microsoft though, there's no denying that.

    Ohh that's some aggressive pricing. Kinda temping but I think I would rather spend that 350 on other gaming related stuff.

    The Unity deal is pretty good, Black Flag is probably still the best game on new consoles despite Mordor being out. Obviously that's probably going to change in February.

    Desperate, they´re literally losing money in order to sell more consoles. Still, this means I´ll be getting an Xbox One sooner rather than later to go with my PS4. But yes, they´re desperate.

    Hope it helps them, we need fiercer competition. I'm a bit disappointed in Sony so far and they won't be forced to improve if everyone else flops.

    Not cheap enough for me unfortunately. I have all the other systems and I'd only buy an Xbox for the exclusives. I hope we see the magical 299 next year, it always manages to convince me.

    Ars Technica thinks the PS4 may be outselling the Bone by 2-to-1, so it makes sense Microsoft is getting desperate.

    Man, that's reallllllll tempting. I don't really want a white console though, as much as I'd like Sunset Overdrive. I guess the AC one is black, but I'm gonna get the PS4 version of that for co-op with PS4 friends.

    Oh well.

    Curious what the Black Friday sales are gonna be now. If the SKU with the Kinect drops to or gets below $399 I'm getting it. Also really surprised there's no bundle for the Master Chief Collection yet.

    I think Xbox One is a perfect compliment to any PC gamer. The price is right with a game bundled in, it is enough for PC gamers to satiate their appetite for console game action outside of their main interest in PC gaming.

    Stupid of them to put the price back. They should lower it permenantly. I am not buying either console until it is around €200-250. I have never paid more than €250 for a console and I am not about to atart now. What I have paid so far.

    PS3 €200

    360 €200 (akthough it was the core edition so I ended up buying a harddrive later)

    PS2 €100

    Gamecube €160

    XBOX €250

    Dreamcast €250

    PS1 €180

    Master System €50

    NES €80

    I think this will probably pan out to work for Microsoft but what if it doesn't? I mean a $150 price drop in a year and a free game. What do they do if this doesn't move consoles like they hope? I know the company is sitting on a mountain of billions in cash, but it is fascinating watching what may become another Dreamcast. (I say may not will)

    @nomin: Not sure about that, PS4 will probably have more exclusives that will never have a PC version. Then again Xbox One comes with a (pricey) controller that works without hacks on a PC.

    Man, you guys have some really odd criteria for purchasing a console. I didn't realize color, size, and whether or not you think it's a "desperate" move by Microsoft to discount it for the holiday season were deciding factors.

    Whenever I look into getting a new graphics card, I think about the price difference between that single component and a complete console. That being said, I think I prefer my PC for now... but the prices of these consoles is intriguing to me and I'll probably pick one up at some point.

    @superfriend: I think it's called a holiday discount. It's usually viewed as something positive, but -ah, now I see, it's Microsoft offering a discount so it's inherently bad, were still upset with them for murdering all those babies.

    It's kind of astonishing that this system hasn't even been out for a year yet, and they feel they have to be this aggressive with pricing.
