Best Buy Accidentally Sells Xbox Ones For $45

That price was corrected that quick-smart, sadly.

Share.

By Katie WilliamsCanadian gamers must've thought they were still dreaming when they logged onto Best Buy Canada today to find an Xbox One console listed with Rayman Legends for just $45 CAD.

The listing was made public by a Reddit user, who posted the above photo. Best Buy has obviously corrected its mistake now, but there's discussion in the Reddit thread of some about a very lucky few gamers who may have managed to grab the deal of a lifetime.

"Almost all of the orders were cancelled but a lucky few made it to pick theirs up," says the original poster, Z3ppelinDude93.

Another user, LoveSalad, says he managed to claim his $45 Xbox One, posting a photo of his shiny new console along with the receipt.

We'll definitely be eyeballing online retailers obsessively from now on. Did any of you manage to nab your own ridiculously cheap console?

Yeah I have the white xbox one that says made by me. I'll take pictures once I get my galaxy s5 next week.

Got it for free.

I'll record videos too if you don't believe me.

It does. I told you I'll record a video and take pictures once I get my galaxy s5.

It's the real thing.

So with kinect it's worth $45 but without kinect it's worth $400

@chikenfriedrice:

Yes. That just how bad Kinect(lol) is.:P

Seriously though besides On and Off I dont use it and wont by any games for it. To me it turned out useless and unnecessary and even MS eventuality realized that and dropped it.

I bet the majority of sales after June will be for the console without Kinect(lol).

But yea, the guy got a great deal at $45, but that wouldn't make a good SW's statement :P

$45 with Kinect is still overpriced.

#15 Posted by silversix_ (14819 posts) -

$45 is what a system only capable of 720-792p should worth in 2014.

@silversix_: @hitmanactual: Troll fail. Find a console or build a PC that can run that resolution or higher for 50 dollars and than you can talk

#18 Posted by SolidGame_basic (17983 posts) -

someone should make a thread about what price point would I buy an X1.

#19 Posted by speedfreak48t5p (8228 posts) -

Still too high.

xbox one isn't the joke of the industry. it has a lot of good exclusives.

#21 Posted by milannoir (1559 posts) -

Seems about right for a "next-gen" (lol) console.

#22 Posted by foxhound_fox (88802 posts) -

I would not have hesitated to buy that. I love uber-booboos like that.

My bad. BTW I only have so many devices to take pictures of my other devices. >_> Don't make me pull out my camera to take a picture of my phone. Took this back when I thought TC wrote that last question so forgive me shielder.

@clyde46, @commonfate forgive the bad handwriting

They already have.

Microsoft quietly testing the waters. Expect a $45 Captain King bundle by Christmas.

@shadowchronicle said:

Nice! You got something super rare and you didn't give Microsoft any money for it.

Did you actually make it though?

#30 Edited by Shadowchronicle (26039 posts) -

No lol. My dad does. I just own it because he doesn't hardly play any games and my mom would only use Netflix on it.

#31 Posted by freedomfreak (41040 posts) -

That's one sweet looking Xbox One, Shadowchronicle. Color me jelly.

#32 Posted by Star0 (443 posts) -

These retards on the internet need to stop this shit. Just stay quiet next time.

#33 Posted by R4gn4r0k (16703 posts) -

I hope MS lowers the price to 45 permanently one day
