It’s already been headlined that today Microsoft unveiled an Xbox One Titanfall Edition console. Microsoft had stated that the bundle will be available at select retailers. Turns out, as of today, it’s only available at two retailers in the US.
You can grab the Xbox One Titanfall Edition console bundle at:
Given Titanfall won’t be released until March 11th, both retailers are offering release day shipping – always an enticing move to keep gamers from trekking to the local Best Buy instead. For Microsoft Store, the cutoff order time to receive free release day shipping is March 8th at 12PM Pacific, whereas for Amazon you’ll have to select two-day shipping at checkout. Given the extra cost involved if you don’t have Amazon Prime, buying at Microsoft Store is the way to go for those of us who are Prime-less.
As mentioned in the announcement post, the bundle comes with a download code for a digital copy of Titanfall plus the usual Xbox One items (Kinect, wireless controller, and headset). You also get one month’s worth of Xbox Live Gold membership – pretty much a must-have for Titanfall.
This of course is a slight up-yours to those who already bought an Xbox One last November with the intention of buying Titanfall. Or maybe I’m just reading into this a little bit too much, as market demand obviously dictates pricing. While this promotion can be argued as NOT a price drop, it’s safe to say that Microsoft is most definitely mulling Xbox One pricing across the board (not just in the UK, where prices drop from £429.99 to £399.99), with the PS4 eclipsing the Xbox One in sales for the 8th Gen console war.
