Xbox One price drops yet again, but the promotion is limited

Xbox One

Update: A Microsoft spokesperson tells TechRadar that the Xbox One price cut is currently limited to the US.

As far as how long it will last, they're "not going into depth on the life of the price promotion at this time," the spokesperson said, but promised "more details soon."

Original story follows…

The Xbox One's price went down late in 2014 and then right back up at the end of the year, and now it's gone back down again.

That means $50 off the Xbox One for a total price of $350 in the US, Microsoft announced via Xbox Wire.

It's unclear whether this discount applies outside the US, or whether this price slash is more permanent than the last one, but we've asked Microsoft to clarify those two points.

Despite a rocky launch the Xbox One is doing better than OK for itself now, with sales during November and December 2014 reportedly beating sales of the Xbox 360 during the same period in the older console's lifespan by 50%.

We'll update this article if we hear back from Microsoft on the details of its latest Xbox One price cut.
