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?

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.

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

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

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

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

Did you actually make it though?
