In an interesting move today, Microsoft has announced that it will be making some changes to it’s Xbox One systems. This includes a price drop in the Europe to £399/€499 effective March 13th(the game’s release date). They have also decided to bundle a digital copy of Titanfall, their exclusive shooter from EA, into that price point. The news for the US isn’t quite as nice. The price point in the US will remain the same at $499, however for that price you will be able to get a free digital copy of the game upon it’s release on the 11th of March. It’s not quite as sweet a deal, but if you’re looking forward to Titanfall, you’ll probably think it’s worth it. The following items are included in the bundle:
- Standard Xbox One console and Kinect sensor
- Standard Xbox One wireless controller
- Standard Xbox One Chat Headset
- Download code for a digital copy of “Titanfall”
- One month Xbox Live Gold membership
