The Xbox One UK price now dropped to £329

1 min read

The Xbox One was released in the UK last November for £429 and now 6 months later Microsoft has yet to announce any sort of official price drop while the console has steadily been dropping in retailer-mandated price.

The latest retailer cutting the price of the Xbox One is Overclockers who has dropped the price to an incredibly low £329 and that’s including a bundled copy of FIFA 14.

Unfortunately these guys don’t ship to South Africa but if you have a friend in the UK this may be the cheapest way to get yourself an Xbox One before September.

So does this new price cut indicate that Microsoft are dropping the price of the console for retailers while not revealing a consumer price cut to ensure they don’t alienate current owners? There is a lot of talk in the industry of Microsoft announcing some huge things at E3 this year and these random price cuts lead me to believe that one of two things are going to happen.

Either they are going to reveal a huge across the board price cut of around $120 which will easily jumpstart the slowing retail sales. It would put immense pressure on Sony to counter that price cut which will benefit everyone in the industry but will also cause more financial pressure on Sony who are only just now getting back into the money making business.

Or, and this is my expectation.

Microsoft are going to release a new version of the Xbox One which will still include the Kinect add on, a larger hard drive at a slightly reduced price that will match the price of the PlayStation 4. Sony won’t counter this as they still have momentum on their side.

Since we are only getting our Xbox Ones in September or October I predict we are going to be getting the new models which also explains why Microsoft are waiting so long to release to other countries even though they have stock of the current model.

    When you have a shop and you bought 300 Bar one’s and after 6 months you still have 200 of those Bar one’s left you start selling them for cheaper to clear space for a Kit Kat or two!!

    That’s excellent news for XBOX fans. Heck I might even buy one come September if the price cuts carries over to us.

    If this keeps up we’re looking at about R4100.00 for an Xbone.
    I’m calling it now.

        Assuming there’s another £100 price drop in over the next 6 months then it will retail for £229.00 and if the exchange rate doesn’t change then it should be R4100.00.
        Okay it will probably go up to R5000+ from the exchange rate but I’m no economist so I can’t predict the exchange rate 6 months from now.

          Um …. Let me show u the light son

          Ps4 = $399 = R6400 – 6800

          What Eva u think it shoul be based on sound maths and a half decent exchange rate it won’t be , it’s Gana be about r1500 to r2000 over a straight conversion ie u think it should cost 4400 with a direct conversion , Alus it’s 6400 buddy , welcome to import taxes and nkandla rent duties

    Still not interested, I’ve got my PS4 which I’m happy with and I shall look to build a PC for anything I cant play on the PS4. I see no reason to purchase a X1 which is a pity. I’m expect a big apology and lots of humble pie eating by Phil at E3, but will it be too little too late??
