It wasn’t that long ago that one could pick up a shiny new Xbox One console for $299.99. That went away and the price for the system went back up to $349 for the 500GB models and $369 for the 1TB versions. Well, now it seems that the price drop is back yet again. Gamers can pick up a 500GB Xbox One, including the Gears of War Ultimate or Special Edition Quantum Breaker for $299, while the 1TB variations are selling for $319.
However, the question here is why the price drop and so soon? Sure, E3 is right around the corner and with that comes the rumor that Microsoft will be announced a slimmed down version of the Xbox One. Now that would be a coincidence as to why the older systems are being sold off at a discount. Then again it could merely be for E3 2016 taking place and Microsoft looking to get more systems sold. Either way, it’s a win for anyone looking to get a Xbox One for cheap, well cheaper than normal.
