A few weeks back, we mentioned that the price of the Xbox One and Titanfall bundle in had come down a bit in the UK. At the time, I wondered if that price cut would be coming to the US as well. We now know that the lower price is indeed coming to the US.
Reports indicate that the price of the Xbox One and Titanfall bundle at Best Buy and Walmart is being reduced by $50. That makes the console bundle available for $450. That brings the cost of the Xbox One closer to the price of the PS4 in the US.
However, the Xbox One is still $50 or so more than the PS4. The PS4 sells for $399, but you do get one of the best games around for the Xbox One in the bundle, so the price works out to be competitive. Interestingly the price discount is said to be coming from the retailers, not Microsoft.
