Microsoft has decided to listen to the fans and drop the price for their next-gen console to $399, but this bundle will not include the Kinect Sensor.
Xbox One faced a lot of criticism due to the inclusion of Kinect, and with its removal and great new titles lined up for this year release, you can bet that Microsoft’s machine has now chance to surpass the PlayStation 4 by the end of this year.
This new console will be available for sale on June 9th, just by the time E3 begins.
Microsoft wants to give people more choice and don’t want them to be bound by anything. In addition to dropping the price alongside Kinect, Microsoft promises to deliver free games and amazing discounts to the players with Xbox Live Gold Subscription.
Starting next month, the Gold members of Xbox One will get Max: The Curse of Brotherhood and Halo: Spartan Assault for free. On the other hand, the Xbox 360 users will get Charlie Murder, Super Street Fighter IV and Dark Souls for Free.
There are many popular apps available on the Xbox Live right now but still the company is looking to add more apps in an effort to make the Xbox One, the one source of all entertainment.
With this price drop, Microsoft is head to head with Sony’s PS4 in terms of price and with E3 coming up in less than a month, Microsoft has a chance to show the upcoming exclusive titles and turn the tide in their favor.
