Xbox One + Titanfall + Forza 5 = $450 at NewEgg [UPDATE: It's over]

[UPDATE] Special promo ends.

[UPDATE] NewEgg's hot deal has cooled off, as it's gone up to $499 with no games included.

The original story is below.

Online retailer NewEgg is currently offering a good deal on the Xbox One. Available now is a special bundle that includes a 500GB system and copies of Respawn Entertainment's shooter Titanfall and Turn 10's racing game Forza Motorsport 5 for $450.

The system is in stock as of 8:56 a.m. EDT and there's a limit of five per customer. The copy of Forza 5 included with the bundle is a digital version of the game.

This is one of the better deals we've seen on the Xbox One. Last week, retailer Frys offered an Xbox One, Titanfall, and Forza 5 for $460, but the deal was valid in-store only. There's no word on how long NewEgg's deal will last.

Microsoft's own online store is currently selling the Titanfall and Forza 5 Xbox One bundles for $450 each. It's not an official price cut, but the new and lower price point has been available for over a month now. Sony's PlayStation 4 currently sells for $400 and does not include a bundled game.

Throw in games I want and get rid of the kinetic. I might actually think about it.

MS should throw in a free ps4. That will move some xb1s. :)

That would have been a killer deal! I Still would have passed, but for those looking at getting a console, it would have been worth it.

It is a good deal but im going to wait till it's free on playstation plus.

@lostmyaccount Even if it was an error  they should have left it as they would have sold more at $450. Oh well newegg is taking a loss as it is with the free games.

Thats pretty impressive.  That should get all those old model Xbox one's out of inventory.  


I'm still suspicious of MS.

That's a cracking deal (shameful pun definitely intended).

Did not some of us say "long ago" that this would happen?

So, my question to folks: As prices approach parity, what is the next excuse?

I put it that way because except for a few folks who talked about the technical merits of both consoles, FAR more was made of the price difference alone.

$50 more than ps4 with $120 free games and camera still included that even if you counted as being worth the $60 ps eye = $449 with $180 of stuff not on competitors $399 console. Yep parity.

Bundle on NewEgg lists it at $499 not $450!

@StryfeBringer @lim30041982  Anyone who actually uses PS+ knows that for the first year, they gave out what PS gamers classify as "meh/shit" until their network got hacked, brought down for over a month, and their customers CC data stolen. That's when they started actually making an effort with the game selection. Considering at that point PS3 already had a decent library of games, unlike PS4, it's not going to happen for PS4 any time soon.

Free games on ps4 only since launch via playstation plus: resogun, contrast, don't starve, outlast and mercenary kings plus free starter pack for war frame and lots of big discount sales.

That's a damn good price for anyone in the market. They (retailers) are really hacking the cost of entry on this puppy

lol MS is desperate, few months from now you will be able to buy the console for $100 with all their launch titles bundled

I think they would be better off to drop the games and sell it for $375. It'd make a much bigger statement because people always look at the price first.

Still waiting for a Titanfall Bundle for 399.99. I can only imagine that the price point will be lowered to drive sales to catch up to ps4 on hardware sales. Even though Titanfall outsold infamous in software PS4 still won the hardware battle. Another Xbox exclusive should come out of E3 or else Xbox might be in trouble.

Seriously like since the X1's release it has almost constantly been bundled with a game or two. You'd think MS would just learn to ditch the kinect and drop it to $400 rather than retailers opting to give a game or two with it at a cheaper price. It just seems like an contradiction imo.

Why stop there why not give it away for free with 10 games !

Still not really worth it IMO. I'll wait for them to lower the price more by dropping the kinect. The console needs some better games too.

MS is aiming for casual gaming population, which needless to say is majority

@sleepyinmorning  Yeah, them casuals love Forza, Titanfall, Killer Instinct, Dead Rising 3, Halo and all the other great games. Need more casuals like them.

sleepyinmorning
sleepyinmorning

Well,I was talking about price tag,and there is no difference b/w casuals and hardcore when it comes to selection of games atleast,casuals just play less

ChiefReaver

@sleepyinmorning  Casuals go for the cheapest console. Ever heard of the Wii? And the Ps3 didn't catch up to the 360 until the price dropped.

American only of course. On Canadian version best can get is the Titanfall bundle at 499.99. Still worth it in my opinion (got mine on launch day) BUT that 450 deal with 2 games is insanely awesome.

I jumped all over this deal this morning.  My friend brought his xbox one over this weekend and it was great.  Every time I walked into the living room from the kitchen or hall way it saw and recognized me :D

I'll probably sell my Titanfall Code seeing how I already have it for PC, but who knows.  Great pick up at this price.


And FYI, I already own the PS4, which is great and all, but I really do love the extra features that "gamers" hate on because they're not gaming related.  Also, they have some great exclusives like Dead Rising 3, Forza, and Killer Instinct.  Even the Kinect Sports Rivals was entertaining (hated the original.)

@Tigerbite2  Enjoy it, it's a lot of fun and I was so impressed at how much I enjoyed the Kincet, thought I'd hate it. Been owner since launch, love to see new people come in and enjoy next gen, whether it's PS4 OR X1 or PC or somehow all of them, it's an awesome time to be a gamer.

@Tigerbite2  I just bought one at Target last week when they were selling it for 450 with Forza 5 and a year of XBL, plus Titanfall was on sale for 50. Couldn't really justify 500 for just the console at launch, but spending 500 for the console with two games and a year of Live, I can get behind that. Enjoying it so far, probably pick up Dead Rising 3 next.

Tigerbite2

@eelektrik @Tigerbite2 Dead Rising 3 was amazing.  Probably the main reason I'm buying the Xbox One right now.  (I already have titanfall on pc and forza...well...I like it, but it can get boring quick.)  But man...Dead Rising 3 and all the custom weapons/vehicles you can build with the epic animations...*drools*

You're naive if you think Dead Rising 3 isn't coming to PS4 eventually. It doesn't mean anything that Microsoft published the game. Look at Mass Effect 1. It eventually arrived on PS3 despite it being published by Microsoft.

Tigerbite2

@PSYCHOV3N0M You're just naive in general.  I stated Dead Rising 3 was a good exclusive (heh, guess what, it is exclusive.  Good is just my opinion.)  Not sure when stating facts became naive.  I wasn't even being biased.
