Earlier this month Microsoft slashed the price of the Xbox One in the UK to just £349 in an attempt to further increase sales of their latest gen console in good old Blighty. At the time Microsoft revealed no plans to roll out the price-drop to other territories but it seems that they may have changed their mind in the spirit of Christmas.

For a limited time only, Microsoft is lowering the price of the Xbox One in the US by $50 to $349. This limited price-drop will begin on November 2 and will apply not only to the standalone console, but to all of the bundles Microsoft has lined up this Holiday season. The $50 price drop will last until January 3, 2015.

Microsoft have detailed several of the exclusive bundles:

  • Available on Nov. 2 in the U.S., the Xbox One Assassin’s Creed Bundle for $349 ERP and Xbox One Assassin’s Creed Bundle with Kinect for $449 ERP features Assassin’s Creed: Unity as well as Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag on Xbox One. The Xbox One Assassin’s Creed Bundle with Kinect also includes Dance Central Spotlight.
  • The Xbox One Special Edition Sunset Overdrive Bundle, available in limited quantities now, features a sleek white console and wireless controller, a digital copy of Sunset Overdrive, and special Day One edition in-game items – available for $349 ERP.
  • The Xbox One Limited Edition Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Bundle for $449 ERP available starting Nov. 3, features a 1TB hard drive, custom console, custom controller and Limited Edition exoskeleton, plus a digital copy of the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare Day Zero Edition.

Remember, this offer is valid from November 2, 2014 through January 3, 2015 at participating retailers. Regional availability and timing outside the U.S. will vary.
