If you’re a US gamer who caught our story yesterday about the deals on the Xbox One bundle in the UK, and you wished you could find such a deal, you’re in luck.
Fry’s is selling the Xbox One bundled with Titanfall and Forza 5 for just $459.99, a full $100 off its regular price. If you’re interested in those games and haven’t picked up an Xbox One yet, it probably won’t get any better than this (although we can’t make any promises).
At this point, we’re surprised Microsoft hasn’t announced an official price cut. As it is, we’ll keep our eyes open for more discounts at other retailers.Tags: bundle, forza 5, price cut, titanfall, xbox one

If you’re a UK gamer thinking about picking up the Xbox One, this might be your chance. The Titanfall bundle, which was already a good deal, was discounted yesterday to £349 at ASDA Direct. Amazon UK quickly followed with the same deal. But if you thought it couldn’t get any better than that, you would have been in for a surprise. Today, Xtra-Vision and HMV both released a promotional code (XVXBOX) that drops the price even lower, to £339.99.
Xtra-Vision and HMV have both sold out of the Titanfall bundle, but with any luck, they’ll get more in stock soon.
This is really kind of crazy, but great news for anyone who has hesitated over the Xbox One because of its price. The price was one of the sticking points for a lot of people, and the more it’s discounted, the more appealing it looks. Still, we feel a little bad for customers who bought it at its full price.

Rumors are rampant about the next Halo game. Is it going to be Halo 5? Halo 2 Anniversary? Something else entirely? Microsoft is offering no official answers either way, but once again, a job opening at 343 Industries has caused additional speculation.
343 Industries needs a Software Development Engineer who has “recently shipped a AAA Xbox One title” and “will be able to support external partners.”
The person who takes this position will join “an incredible team to help drive the future of Halo.”
Not only is this job directly related to Halo, but the reference to “external partners” supports the rumors that Saber Interactive and Certain Affinity, who worked on Halo Anniversary, could be working on a Halo 2 Anniversary. On the other hand, it could be related to Halo: Spartan Assault, which was co-developed by Vanguard.
We’d be surprised if this was about Spartan Assault, although that title has cropped up a few times today. Its price was dropped to $9.99 on both the Xbox One and Xbox 360, and it was also announced to be on its way to Steam.
Whatever the case may be, we hope to learn more at E3 in a few months! Share your thoughts and predictions in the comments below.Tags: halo, halo 2, price cut, rumors, spartan assault, xbox one

There has been some controversy over Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, mainly due to its short length, its function as a prologue to the upcoming The Phantom Pain, and (perhaps most important of all) its price, which numerous players consider too high for the game’s length and content.
Well, it’s already seeing price cuts, even though it’s been out for less than a week. Sony cut the price of the digital PS4 version from £29.99 to £24.99, and retailers across Japan have given it a variety of discounts. This suggests fans’ displeasure over the game resulted in lower sales, although we have yet to hear any definite numbers.

Yes, you read that right–the Titanfall bundle, which was already an effective price cut for the Xbox One by keeping the price of the console the same while adding in the game, has received a price cut at certain retailers.
So far, Wal-Mart and Best Buy have both dropped the price by $50. You can now pick up an Xbox One bundled with a digital copy of Titanfall for only $450. As far as we know, this is an online-only deal.
Great news for people who have yet to pick up an Xbox One, less so for those who just bought one at the regular price. It also raises questions about whether retailers are having trouble selling the console, despite the boosted sales due to Titanfall’s release.
