We've now got the Xbox One S. Project Scorpio is around the corner. So, as everyone expected, that means the price of the original Xbox One is coming down.
And apparently, it's coming down real fast.
OzBargain has revealed that Target will be having an in-store only clearance of old Xbox One 500GB consoles from Thursday to Saturday. It won't be offered online, but if you're fortunate enough to get to a store that has stock you'll be able to pick up the standalone console — no Kinect, no bonus games — for $269.
From memory, it's the cheapest price that's been offered to date for the current generation of consoles. Hell, it's only barely more than what it would cost you to pick up a New 3DS. And if you're not looking at buying into Project Scorpio, or you just want to pick up a console for relatively cheap, it'a s decent offering.
I can certainly see this being the right price point for a lot of parents or families, looking for something reasonable to entertain their kids or just to have as a media player that does a bit of gaming.
But I put it to you, dear reader: do you own an Xbox One? And if not, what's stopping you from getting one, and how much would it have to cost before you'd change your mind?
