Xbox One Price Cut Announced, Spring Game Sale Detailed
Hardware temporarily drops to $300 starting March 20, while the 150-strong Spring Sale begins on March 22.
Microsoft is temporarily cutting the price of the Xbox One as part of a new spring sale, the company has announced. Beginning March 20, all Xbox One consoles in the US will be offered for $50 off, meaning you can get a new system starting at $300. This is the lowest price Microsoft has ever offered the console for. It is a temporary price cut, though Microsoft did not say when the price will go back up to $350.
The Spring Sale, meanwhile, will start on March 22. As part of this one-week promotion, Microsoft will offer discounts on a variety of Xbox and PC games, as well as movies and TV content from the Xbox Store.
Microsoft isn't disclosing the exact sales just yet, but titles such as Fallout 4, Halo 5: Guardians, Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Far Cry Primal, and Rainbow Six Siege will all be discounted, in some cases by more than 60 percent. Backwards-compatible Xbox 360 games will also be marked down in the sale period.
In all, the Spring Sale will include more than 150 offers. Check back next week for our roundup of the Spring Sale deals.
