On February 28th, the Xbox One will receive a price cut from £429 to £399 in the UK. For comparison, the PlayStation 4 is £349 there.
I’m holding out hope for a similar gesture in North America. $449 with a copy of TitanFall? If I were to pay for Xbox Live! Gold, that would be a swell proposition.
Some are saying that this price drop is an insult to early adopters. A ~$50 reduction in price is significant but some early adopters were able to get free copies of Forza Motorsport 5 and FIFA 14, so it balances out in my eyes. This isn’t like the Nintendo 3DS scenario at all where the price dropped by nearly 33%. This Xbox One price drop was only 7% dip.
