I won’t pretend I’m not one of those people that has to have the newest video consoles when they first release. Ever since I’ve been old enough to earn and spend my own money I was there lined up on day one ( preordering nowadays) ready to see what the newest generation of gaming would bring. Despite that fact though, one of the most exciting things that happens after these systems release is the inevitable competition and price drops they will see as companies fight for gamers allegiance and mostly for their (and their parents) money.
This upcoming Holiday season looks to be no different as we will see the Wii U from Nintendo enter it’s 4th year, while the Sony PS4 and the Microsoft Xbox One enter their 3rd. While many wait for the holidays to score a system at its best deal, Microsoft has come out of the gate swinging and have announced they will be offering the Xbox One for $399 with an upgraded 1TB Hard Drive and 3 games:
– Gears of War: Ultimate Edition
– Rare Replay
– Ori and the Blind Forest
Though $399 is still somewhat steep for some, the value you are receiving can’t be denied. If you haven’t taken the plunge on an Xbox One yet, now just might be the prefect time. The bundle should be available in stores and online retailers in October.
