E3 2017: Xbox One S Price Cut Announced, Starts Tomorrow

Microsoft follows Sony and announces its own E3 week price cut.


Microsoft is cutting the price of the Xbox One S, though it might not be a permanent price drop. Starting on June 11, the day of the Xbox E3 briefing, Microsoft will offer the console for only $250. That's a price drop of $50, and it brings the system in line with the PS4 Slim's temporary price cut. It remains to be seen if the Xbox One S price drop is only for a limited time.
