If you're still holding off on picking up an Xbox One due to the price, then you may want to rethink that strategy. Microsoft today revealed that most Xbox One bundles will be available at retail for only $299.99 starting March 20th.

The Xbox Spring Sale is advertised as a limited time offer, but we've all heard that before… The sale event will also feature discounted digital Xbox and PC releases for about a week too.
