The Xbox One had a great holiday season, spurred on by its $349 pricing promotion. It was such a good deal that some of our Shacknews community members wondered why Microsoft would ever let the price cut lapse? After briefly allowing the price to rise back up, Microsoft has apparently had a change of heart and will restore the $349 price point starting tomorrow.
"Building off a record-setting holiday, we are excited to announce a new promotion in which fans in the U.S. can buy an Xbox One at a special price of $349, starting tomorrow, January 16, from their preferred retailer," Corporate Vice President of Marketing for Xbox Mike Nichols said on Xbox Wire. "We are thankful for all the excitement for Xbox One this holiday and proud to offer more fans the amazing games lineup, Xbox Live gaming community, and continual innovation that Xbox One fans have come to enjoy."
No word on what this means for anyone that purchased an Xbox One in the last 12 days, but for those holding out for another price cut, the time to strike appears to be tomorrow.
