Xbox One price just fell to £299.99 in the UK

The Xbox One price just fell to £299.99 in the UK, Microsoft has confirmed.
Microsoft has announced a UK specific official Xbox One price cut, but it’s led by the retailers apparently.
According to a Microsoft spokesperson speaking to MCV, the latest price cut follows that set by retailers and is only available in the UK.
The last retail-led price cut came in September last year, when the official Xbox One UK price fell to £330 – down from the opening Kinect bundle price of £429.
Of course, this £299.99 price is for the Kinect-free version of the Xbox One, but often retailers will chuck in a select game for free for that price too.
“This is a UK-only retail promotion and offers great value for fans looking to buy an Xbox One ahead of the launch of 2015’s highly-anticipated games like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain and Batman: Arkham Knight, along with Xbox exclusives such as Rise of the Tomb Raider, Forza Motorsport 6 and Halo 5: Guardians”, said a Microsoft spokesperson.

Microsoft has been lowering the price of the Xbox One of late in an attempt to compete with the PS4, which is currently just winning the new-gen console race in terms of sales.
The first Xbox One price cut officially came in February last year to £399.99, followed by the launch of the Kinect-free Xbox One bundle for £349.99.
For those that are interested, the Xbox One + Kinect bundle is now £399.99, down from the original £429.
