Xbox One price-cut not coming to other territories, says Eagle

Monday, 24th February 2014 14:44 GMT By Dave Cook

Xbox One is getting its first official price-cut in the UK on February 28, and Xbox UK Marketing Director Harvey Eagle has confirmed that the deal isn’t coming to other territories at this time.

We’ve got Microsoft’s official £399.99 Titanfall Xbox One bundle details through the link. Hit it y’all.

Explaining the deal to OXM, Eagle began, “My responsibility is only for the UK so I can only talk about our territory. This is about offering the best value to UK gamers, and as a result we’re announcing this new price point of £399. There’s no announcements in other countries planned, so it’s a UK-only adjustment and we feel this is the right thing to do in our market.”

He added, “The timing of this is very much around Titanfall,” and continued, “It’s about value rather than price. People buy a console to play the best games, the best games coming this year include Titanfall, and Destiny, and Watch Dogs, and if you want to play all three of those you’re going to need an Xbox One. And as we said in the announcement today from the 14th March customers are also going to get a copy of Titanfall included when they get an Xbox One, we think that’s really good value.”

How do you feel about the UK-only price-cut? Are you in another country and pissed at the news? Let us know.

    Except I’m pretty sure you don’t need an Xbox One to play Titanfall, Destiny, and Watch Dogs…just a PS4 and PC.

    If the X1 was 300usd in NA I would buy one. Other then that they can keep it. I am pretty happy with my PS4, WiiU, PC and ofc PS360.

    Might have went for it had titanfall not been
    online only, but definitaly would if they get rid of kinnect and drop the price accordingly, xbox ones gathering dust in my local tescos for weeks now, i dont think
    titanfall will break any records or be a system seller, for every gamer who lauds online multiplayer there is another who is indifferent to it, but who knows, i may be wrong…..or not, time will tell.

    In other words, giving up everywhere.
    Not like they had a chance. The sales ratio in mainland is heavily skewed towards PS4 (more than 2:1 in most countries).
    Funny how MS is now fighting just to gain a foothold in its erstwhile dominated territories,

    ” the best games coming this year include Titanfall, and Destiny, and Watch Dogs, and if you want to play all three of those you’re going to need an Xbox One.”

    O’Rry?

    Xbox 360 is getting Titanfall, Destiny, and Watch Dogs as well. So no, you don’t NEED a Xbox One to play ‘the best games this year’

    Oh Please, that’s like saying a £300 PC is all you need to PC game – the 360 versions of these games will look like shit and the performance is going to suffer heavily. I’d rather not play the games at all than play them on the 360 – and I’m saying this as someone with a 360 and a gaming PC (albiet one that needs an upgrade).

    And for all those saying “Oh you can just play all of them on a PC and PS4″ – let’s be honest now and say it together: A PC and a PS4 is MORE than a X1. Is the concept of the X1 being the only ONE system to run all three really two hard for you to grasp or accept that you have to point out the oh-so-obvious fact that other systems do in fact exist?

    now @2 you can just stfu. $300 isn’t a fair price for ANY current gen console save the Wii U.
