    Is this a joke post or am I misunderstanding something? If you don't play online, you aren't the target demographic, so why is pricing an issue. An online game can be 60 dollars, but it has to have the content to justify it.

    To be competitive with competition that is potentially more powerful you have to lower the price as seen by AMD with their desktop processors.

    IF AMD CPUs were more expensive than the Intels they would not sell many at all. Yet the xbone is still more expensive than its competition.

    Regardless of taxes the xbone and PS4 are still more expensive in the UK and Europe than USA. Europe just gets the symbol changed in front of the number.

    @Coolguy. MS but it seems there were deals already out. So likely those deals will go away and it will just be cut in price.

    399 is a decent price, especially with Titanfall bundled with it.

    They can't put the price back up again tho after this "special offer", no way.

    so instead of 429 pounds for just the console. it's 399 PLUS Titanfall? Wow...that is an incredible deal and i think it's probably the best thing they can do to stimulate demand. props to MS for being reactive.

    Sony's turn now to respond, free Infamous SS maybe?

    Sony ain't gonna do $#@! about it. They are stubborn and they will likely just keep their plan the way it is, with spending more on games. i don't think this matters to them much in the overall scheme of things. they have already been very reactive up until launch with their offerings...this won't be looked at them with a negative light, i don't think many would change their mind either way.

    if they were on the fence and had not snagged up a PS4, they didn't want it to begin with. i guess those that couldn't get their hands on the PS4 during this time, might now be interested in this bundle.

    i see Sony cutting the price MAYBE this winter or likely March of 2015 or the latest at E3 2015.

    No need to react. I know amazon isn't the judge of the whole market but look at where the ps4 is ranked. Titanfall is right behind it. Then take a look at where the xbone is ranked. It doesn't seem like titanfall is moving a lot of xbones on amazonuk. The bundle isn't even ranked(unless I missed it while browsing).
