Comes with:

If you've already purchased an Xbox One, Titanfall is selling for the special low price of $60. Oh, and hopefully you got that Day One achievement.

This isn't really the same thing as a price drop. It's not like in the UK where the price is getting cut by roughly $50 and also including Titanfall.

You are the first person to mention "price drop" in this thread.

Well, I like to think I got my extra $60 worth of enjoyment already with my XB1 so I'm not upset about it.

Good news for those who are interested. Somehow I doubt there are any such people around here though...

If you were an early adopter of the Xbox One, Microsoft just screwed you over.

If I was to buy an Xbox One now, I'd get a free copy of Titanfall. Your copy costs $60. If you're happy with that, congratulations! You're probably the ideal Microsoft customer.

Only stupid xboners will fall for this $hitty deal. You get $60 off but you get a lifetime of pain in the ass with that pathetic crap called xbone.

Looks like they're really banking on this franchise. Well, guess there goes any hope of any future titanfall games on the ps4. No big deal though, not really all that interested in titanfall anyway.

This and Titanfall could actually see quite a few sales in March. Not a terrible idea by MS considering how poorly the Bone is doing compared to the PS4 right now.

No they are not. They sell every Xbox One at profit, Sony and Nintendo sells every console at loss. Microsoft has no problem to add free game.

MS didn't screw anyone over you moron. Bundles come and go and TF is about as big a game that's coming anytime soon. A bundle was to be expected. Only idiots would call this a bad thing.

Nice, two ad hominems within four sentences.

It's pretty clear you're upset, but don't worry, Microsoft genuinely appreciates your support during these trying times. They'll put that $60 to good use.

Also mods lock this since it has been in the actual Titanfall thread since this morning.

Kind of like those that bought the PS3 at launch?

Only an idiot would call a price drop or a bundle a bad thing. Yeah I'm calling you an idiot cow.

I don't need a bundle because I didn't buy it for TF. I'll be getting that game on the PC.

I'm not delusional to think the XOne was going to stay $500 for a long time nor was I dumb enough to think MS wouldn't introduce bundles to popular games. I do believe Sony had a ton of bundles during the PS3s lifetime. Are you going to tell me people that bought a PS3 just before a bundle got ripped off?

Stupid cows, always looking for anything about MS to call a negative even if Sony did it long before.

First of all, that doesn't have anything to do with what he said.

Second, you think they have 60 bucks of profit per X1 sold?

Well, you obviously are not a consumer. What about the people that buy that new Cadillac, only to see a summer sale the next week? Or buy that new Camry only to see a new model debut 2 months later? Or the person who bought a brand new set of LG washer/dryers, only to see a 4th of July sale cut the price 30%?

It's called "reality".

That's super-interesting, but it's 2014. The Playstation 3 was released in 2006. Your comeback is about seven years out of date, could we get something a bit more current? Thank you.

Sadly i didnt get the chance to play the beta, got extremely busy and didnt even use the code so all i ended up doing was watching videos about the game to see how the gameplay is and as a huge CoD fan TF is indeed a game i would play so i'll get the PC version and use a dualshock 4 controller to play it.

^^^haha that logic. all those situations u mentioned are sale seasons where consumers are aware of pending sales. everyone knows about black friday sales so if u buy a day or week before that u do it knowingly. had m$ announced before release they would cut the price in 3 months then it would be similar situation but would those early adopters still buy x1? some hardcore will, most wont.

Will be good for those looking to get an Xbox One for Titanfall. Would be even better if they would have dropped the Kinect and priced it a $399. Then it would have moved some serious consoles.

Also, that's not desperation. It's not desperation until they are practically giving away Xbox Ones. Stop being so ignorant and over dramatic about competition. Competition is GOOD for the consumer. Seriously, some people here need to grow up with their views about this market.

You're a consumer, you don't have an invested interest in any of these companies.

That's why you wait to get new consoles. I learned that with the PS2, I paid over $500 for the PS2 with 3 games and a controller back in the day at launch cause every place I looked at was only selling bundles like that I couldn't just get the PS2 system.

Plus you get the digital copy of Titanfall, which according to everyone is horrible cause you like to "own" your game, lol. I am really surprised MS hasn't started offering everyone a free download of Forza 5 or something else to lure people in.

Also did you all forget that the UK got a free copy of Fifa, MS needs a bigger push over there. I am sure there will be more bundles, price cuts or extra savings tactics, and it's called business, and it's all good

I understand how sales work. I also am familiar with the yearly cycle of car model releases.

The Xbox One was released a little more than three months ago. That's a very short period of time to release an official bundle.

If they had just announced that package, I would have already clicked the "order" button. That would be a deal I would get, absolutely.

But the ps2 was the first of it's kind to be able to stand up with the blue stand.

It's not as prominent with the PS3 and PS4 but the option is still there.

Does anybody know if the xbox 1 can stand up without breaking?

It would actually be worth $399. An Xbox One even with a game is not worth $499. That's easily $100 too much.

Do you own one? I'm guessing if it was in the manual, news would have spread already. Though it is early still.

@I_can_haz: "TLHBONED" what the hell does that even mean "The Lems Have Been Oned" you are struggling to claim any ownage over anyone. It's a deal and great offer, PS4 offered to games to download via PS+ everyone wants that PS4+Vita as a sweet price?!?

SW is like a train wreck you just can't stop looking at it even though it's horrible, the only reason it's even worth coming to is there are such rabid fanboys here information is blasted on here fast, that's what keeps me coming here, then I get sucked into the idiocracy :(

@alcapello: No I do not, only have a few actual friends that have one and about 8 people on my friends list on Live that do. If I recall MS said at E3 it's only to be horizontal and my friends only have theirs that way.

This new bundle/offer might suck me in though, I really want Killer Instinct and want to play Titanfall, so I don't know.

It looks like you got distracted on your way to play your Xbox One and you accidentally ended up posting in my topic instead.

Stay focused, man! This is serious business.
