Microsoft has apparently remembered that they have an Xbox One SKU that comes bundled with a Kinect sensor, and in an effort to either clear out some stock or entice those interested in motion/voice control capabilities, they've decided to slash the price by $50 for a limited time.
The $449 "special price" promotion for the Xbox One with Kinect will run from February 8th through the 21st, and should be available at most retailers. Assuming the bundle is the same that's currently available, gamers will get the hardware plus Assassin's Creed: Unity, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag and Dance Central Spotlight download codes.
Check out the announcement from the Xbox Wire below.
With the new year well underway and an exciting lineup of blockbuster titles available in 2015, we wanted to bring yet another opportunity for Xbox fans to get your hands on an Xbox One with Kinect for the special price of $449. For two weeks, starting Sunday, Feb. 8 through Saturday, Feb. 21, fans will receive $50 off any Xbox One with Kinect in the U.S. at most major national retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, GameStop, Target, Toys R Us and Walmart, as well as Microsoft Stores.
If you’ve already taken advantage of the special pricing for Xbox One or Xbox One with Kinect, we’ve also got a fantastic lineup of Xbox One games available. Only on Xbox One can you play exclusive games like Halo: The Master Chief Collection, Sunset Overdrive, Dance Central Spotlight and Forza Horizon 2, along with the newest third-party blockbusters such as Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, Destiny, Far Cry 4 and the highly-anticipated Evolve, which comes to Xbox One next Tuesday, Feb. 10.
Don’t forget, the limited-time pricing of $50 off any Xbox One (without Kinect), at $349, is also available, so check with your local retailers for more details and grab these deals while you can.
