Back in November, Microsoft lowered their Kinect-less Xbox One bundle by $50 to offer a promotional holiday price of $350. This decision made the popular next-gen console cheaper than its rival Sony's PS4 for the first time and the decision proved worthwhile as the Xbox One lead the way in console sales during the holiday season.
In the following video Microsoft's Head of Xbox, Phil Spencer, touches on the future of the console including new feature updates, exclusive game launches, and new integrated third party content providers that are planned to make their way to the console in the near future.
In addition to the previous announcements, the company has announced the following plans in regards to the Xbox One's pricing:
Building off a record-setting holiday, we are excited to announce a new promotion in which fans in the U.S. can buy an Xbox One at a special price of $349, starting tomorrow, January 16, from their preferred retailer. We are thankful for all the excitement for Xbox One this holiday and proud to offer more fans the amazing games lineup, Xbox Live gaming community, and continual innovation that Xbox One fans have come to enjoy.
