Microsoft hasn’t yet officially cut the price of the Xbox One console, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t incredibly easy to find a deal on the now current generation entertainment console. Just two weeks after Microsoft formally announced two new bundles that include games at no additional cost, Wal-Mart is slashing the cost of those bundles including the Xbox One Titanfall bundle by $50.
The deal surfaced on the world’s largest retailer earlier today, for a limited users can pick up the bundle for $449.96. There aren’t any gimmicks, users won’t be required to file any sort of rebate or make any separate purchases, though clearly, making an extra purchase with the console is something Wal-Mart is hoping users will do.
Make no mistake, this deal is an amazing steal for anyone who has considered purchasing the Xbox One since launch. Titanfall, the console’s first high-profile title, would cost users $60 separately. The console that comes included in the Titanfall Xbox One bundle is exactly the same as other editions of the console. Inside the box buyers will find the Xbox One itself, a Kinect 2 sensor, an Xbox One Chat headset, an HDMI cable, and an Xbox One wireless controller. There’s also a rather large power cable too.
Microsoft seems to be trying to undercut the value proposition of the PS4 with savings on included bundles. That’s something that the company wasn’t able to do at launch. By most accounts it was the $399 price tag of the PS4 that kept the Xbox One in second place during the first three months of this year.
The Xbox One Titanfall Bundle isn’t the only Xbox One related thing to see a temporary price cut. The retailer has also slashed the price of the Xbox One Forza Motorsport 5 bundle. The console in that package mirrors the one in the Titanfall Bundle however it includes a digital copy of Forza Motorsport 5, the racing game that launched alongside the Xbox One last November. It too costs $449.
Both consoles are showing free shipping, however only Xbox One Titanfall Bundle buyers have the option to pick up their console at a local Wal-Mart location. There’s no word on how long these prices will last.
