Rumors of Xbox One price cut continue

Written by David Stellmack

No $50 price drop planned according to Microsoft

A number of rumors are coming out of Europe ahead of Gamecom suggesting that Microsoft will drop the price of the Xbox One console by $50. These rumors appear to be false as Microsoft is running around and telling pretty much everyone that will listen that they have no plans to drop the price of the Xbox One and suggestions that they are planning to are in error.

Retailers in Europe are preparing for such a price cut and the lower price was discovered on the Spanish Xbox.com site. (Microsoft claims that this was an error.) Still some sources in the retail community in Europe tell us that they would not be surprised if Microsoft moved to drop the price of the console ahead of the release of FIFA 15 for the Xbox One.

In addition, while we know that Microsoft is planning a Madden NFL 15 bundle release of the Xbox One in North America, it would not be surprising to see a FIFA 15 bundled version of the console in Europe. European retailers think this could be a very likely possibility. So far Microsoft has not confirmed any bundles for the Xbox One yet, but it is expected to be announced at Gamescom.
