Microsoft announced on Sunday that they are going to drop the price of their Xbox One console to half of its original price. So, for those who are interested in buying the console instead of the upcoming Xbox One S, we are going to provide you with the sites where you can buy it.
If you are not interested in the more expensive but slimmer and HDR Color capable Xbox One S, then this is the time to buy your very own Xbox One. Although it is bulkier than the upcoming new one, it will certainly cost you less. As mentioned, Microsoft said on Sunday that they are going to cut the price of their console so it will only cost $249.
According to the gaming company, it is a part of their ?Summer Sale? and it will be available ?while supplies last.? Now, for those who want to get their own Xbox One, you can buy it on the official website of Xbox, Amazon, Gamespot and Stuccu.
The timing of Microsoft?s price cut could not be even better as they are scheduled to release their latest console, the Xbox One S, on August 2, 2016. The upcoming console is a 4K Ultra HD-compatible console that will feature a slimmer profile. It is going to cost $349 and $299 for the 1TB and 500GB models, respectively. Also, the gaming company will release a 2TB limited edition of the console that will be retailed for $399.
However, another console is also coming for Microsoft with a codename ?Project Scorpio.? The company announced the project in June at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) 2016. It is said to hit the market a year after the release of the Xbox One S, which is this coming August. If Scorpio is said to be the ?next big thing for gaming,? then it is safe to assume that gamers would just wait for it instead of buying the upcoming console they know would be irrelevant come next year.
If that would be the case, then the ?Summer Sale? would definitely become a hit, because why would a player waste a buck for an expensive console, if he could just buy the cheaper Xbox One and wait for the ultimate console next year, right? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
