Assassin's Creed and Far Cry publisher Ubisoft is "extremely happy" about Microsoft's recent decision to drop the Xbox One price to $399 by unbundling Kinect from every unit.
"We are extremely happy with that; we think it's a great move from Microsoft," CEO Yves Guillemot said today during a post-earnings financial call. Guillemot went on to say that the Xbox One price cut means that there will be two new consoles (Xbox One and PlayStation 4) available at an "affordable price."
"We expect the next-gen to grow faster thanks to that," Guillemot said. "Customers will have the possibility to buy either with or without [Kinect] and that will be a very positive thing for the industry."
