Microsoft has announced a price drop for Xbox One in the United States. Xbox One price drop affects all 500 GB models which are now available for $249 in the country, according to Major Nelson.
Announcement comes after a notable boost in Xbox One S pre orders. It looks like Microsoft wants to get as many old models out the door before the new S model hits storefronts.
The elite Xbox One 500GB model is going for the same price as well, which comes with a shiny Xbox One Elite controller. You can also pick up 1TB The Division bundle, or 500GB Forza Horizon 2 bundle from Amazon.

Microsoft announced Xbox One S and Xbox 4K aka Project Scorpio at E3 2016. The new S model is 40% slimmer than the original console and comes with HDR feature. Keep in mind that you will need a HDR compatible screen to benefit from HDR.
Furthermore, the best part of Xbox One S is that it comes with a built-in power supply. No more brick!
Meanwhile, Project Scorpio will release in Fall 2017 with 4K support. It will not only offer better frame rates but players can enjoy higher resolutions. The good news is that all Xbox One games will work on Project Scorpio. Older games may not support native 4K resolution but games released in late 2016 and beyond will most probably be native 4K on Project Scorpio.
The new Xbox One price is really tempting so will you be picking up a unit? Or are you saving for Xbox One S?
