Xbox One Titanfall Bundle and 13 Months of Xbox Live $450 at Target; Drops the Console’s Price Down to $330

by on April 6, 2014 11:36 AM 111

The discounts and special offers on the Xbox One Titanfall bundles seem to see no end, and Target just came up with a new one, offering the bundle and 13 months (1 in the box, plus 12 extra) of Xbox Live Gold for $449.99.

This basically brings down the cost of the console to $330, counting the price of the game and of the Xbox Live Gold subscription ($59.99 each at Target). If you want to grab one, you can find it here. You need to add the item to your cart in order to see the discounted price.

It’s definitely hard to imagine a better offer less than five months after the release of a console. If you were on the fence about purchasing an Xbox One, this might tip you over.

  • Norrin Radd

    Yeah, um, no thanks.

  • Wargreymon559 .

    Damn they’re really desperate to move all this extra garbage aren’t they?

  • CervantesPR

    No thanks, desperation right there

    • BigDickKamen

      desperate like sonys attempt to push vita sales?

      • HelghastUser

        Actually, the sad part about it is that they aren’t trying to push sales for it.

        • CervantesPR

          they are, its just in this day and age a handheld is not that easy to sell. especially a handheld dedicated to the core gamer

          • HelghastUser

            I want to believe you entirely but I could only meet you halfway. If the 3DS could pull in the sales it is then so could the VITA. All it should take is some proper marketing and more love. Most people I speak to don’t even know it exists. They remember the PSP, but not the VITA. It irritates me how such a great handheld struggles to sell..

          • MasterofMidnight

            Agreed. I doubt it’d ever sell as well as the 3DS, as Sony don’t have the franchise strength Nintendo does (even though Ninty is slipping as of late), but it should definitely be doing better than the PSP, which did modestly to say the least.

          • cozomel

            Your just that “of” guy, SonofGod /Dawnof-whetver it was. And the PSP sold 80 million so if it sold modestly then so didnt the 360 “to say the least”. What a f-ing moron you are.

      • CervantesPR

        lol i love my vita, it sells decent in japan, even 3DS is only a true great success in japan, so ill enjoy my vita for what it is and you go enjoy your garbage xbox 720 lol

        • shinitaru

          No doubt, PSVita + PS4 is a dream team combo. Not sure why Sony hasn’t bundled them yet

        • MasterofMidnight

          I love my Vita too, but it’s not selling decent in Japan. Not when considered how long it’s been on the market. I see very few people playing on one over here.

          How is the Xbox One garbage exactly?

          • CervantesPR

            The vita is selling just as good as the 3ds during these last months in japan ever since they launched the slim. It almost outsold the 3DS in japan last time i checked by only 3-2k units short its neck and neck with the 3ds in japan due to 3ds saturation. 3ds sales are slowing down every time and selling less every year. it will never reach the 3ds levels of sales because of poor wester support. But its growing platform in japan with a high attach rate. These small japanese studios make a lot of money with the vita.

          • MasterofMidnight

            The sales of the Vita have picked up, but when you add the 3DS and 3DS LL sizes’ salestogether, they’re still selling significantly better, which is notable as the install base for that system is already bigger than the Vita.

            Sales for the system recently (and other systems) have also likely spiked due to people impulse buying before the introduction of higher taxes in the country (implemented about a week or two ago).

            I’d be intrigued to know the source for your “These small japanese studios make a lot of money with the vita.” comment?

            I sincerely hope the Vita sells really well in the future, as I’m a strong advocate for the console. But, I’m not going to ignore the blatantly obvious. If you come to Japan, the Vita really isn’t doing as well as it ought to, and if it’s to be considered a popular system, it really has to be doing consistently more than 40k a week.

          • CervantesPR

            well the source is IGN with Moriarty saying it, dont know which video was it, he said it during this year at some gaming convention when he was talking about dangorampa, so your just going to have to take my word for it.
            i never claimed the vita to be a great success, when i mentioned it i always specifically said japan only. in japan its a not a fail, not a success either, but things are getting better for the handheld over there.

          • CervantesPR

            Xbox one is garbage due to a lot of things
            -last gen resolutions
            -install times take too long
            -no value in xbox live and a rip-off in many ways
            -big ass huge ugly console with a external power brick
            -kinect is forced to buy
            -kinect is flawed
            -NSA spying
            -100$ more expensive than a PS4 which has better graphics
            -controller has tons of design flaws
            -UI is bloated, filled with adverts and is slow
            -console has a fan on top rather than the back,its possible that liquid gets spilled and fry the console, also if an object is placed on top it may overheat your system and may cause damage.
            -HDMI and TV features are useless and pointless IMO cause i would rather have my console turned off as much as possible to conserve the console’s “mileage”.
            -hardrive cannot be exchanged.
            -controller needs an extra $25 extra investment for rechargeable batteries in this day and age
            -proprietary headset port on controller
            -microsoft has less 1st party studios than both SONY and Nintendo
            -microsofts reliance on 3rd party exclusives wont last for ever
            -halo and gears are now being made by different developers.
            -halo and gears is almost guaranteed to be made and milked for the rest of this console gen since they bought the rights to gears and halo is like microsofts “mario” mascot.
            -library of games consists of mostly shooters and dosent have much variety.
            -less Japanese games
            -less popular than PS4
            -microsoft is only reacting to what PS4 is doing, not leading.
            -only 5 minutes of gameplay recording time
            -DRM scenario etc
            thats pretty much what i can think of out of the top of my head.

          • Michael Norris

            Hahaha nice,i agree 100%

          • MasterofMidnight

            But the console can still play great games that I wasn’t able to play with previous generations, and I won’t be able to play on other consoles, marking many of your points either invalid or moot. Others are just nitpicky, or purely optional. In fact, apart from the ‘alleged’ issue with the fan and liquid, I can easily look over, or completely avoid the problems you mention. Garbage? Bitch, please.

          • CervantesPR

            you may call it nitpicking but im just pointing out obvious design flaws that are obvious from services to hardware and design as well as value for money, its the small things that add up to something being great or average.

            “But the console can still play great games that I wasn’t able to play with previous generations, and I won’t be able to play on other consoles, marking many of your points either invalid or moot.”

            what you said there is literally a default given, by default a next gen console is bound to have these these things. you wanted my opinion and i let you have it, and i still think its a garbage system that will be second place all gen long, but hey it has what use to be halo and gears right? lol enjoy your xbox one and the milking of those franchises all gen long, thats what preference is all about! ill be playing my PS4 with the best exclusives in the gaming industry, the most exclusives,the more varied exclusives,the better multiplats(on consoles) and getting free games every month, sounds good to me!

          • ybcdageneral

            the nsa spys on everything connected to tha grid including ur ps4

          • cozomel

            Stealth xbot fanboy. And to answer your question, because it costs $500 plus is weaker with a stupid a$$ useless spy cam. With inferior multiplats and less games. Thats how its garbage. With MS selling you suckers hype.

          • MasterofMidnight

            Not so stealthy troll. I own a PS3, Vita, Wii, and 360.

          • cozomel

            Then why do you talk like youre hating on it then?

      • cozomel

        I love how all these xclown always try and compare sh*t that doesnt really compare. The x1 hasnt even been out 6 months and already all these price drops and deals. Its obviously not selling that well if they are doing this. But these dumb xbots cant understand that. And try and justify it with these lame a$$ comparisons. So according to them the Vita doesnt sell well and is a failure, so what does this clown do? he compares whats happening to the x1 with the vIta. so in other words it isnt selling well and is a failure too then.

  • Galen Nycroft

    This is actually great for people who may have been on the fence due to price. Now’s also a good time to snag one cheap, and save it for your kid’s Christmas gift.

    • such.wow

      Christmas is a bit far away, if you are going to keep it that long, it might be cheaper by then.

      • Galen Nycroft

        I don’t think it will be cheaper than that with all the extras. If it is, that would really be a sign of desperation.

        • HelghastUser

          You know what though, chances are that it will get cheaper. It’s barely been 5 months since it released and its already received major price drops. If sales continue to be as slow as everybody expects it to be then it wouldn’t be surprising to see another drop especially close to holiday season.

          • shinitaru

            Yeah, cause this is just the result of the retailers getting antsy, wait till it sinks in at MS, They are already bundling free games, by Christmas if things keep going as they are we could see a major price drop plus store sales

          • Galen Nycroft

            You guys are probably right, but this would mean retailers would have to take a huge loss on each system. Doesn’t bode well for Microsoft or retail outlets.

            Hopefully there will be more AAA games out by then.

    • Raven Nafariea

      I could never be so crule to my own kids.

    • cozomel

      Yeah, no thanks

  • Mus1ckFPS

    I’m sure, & Hopeful that seeing as Phil is the new head of Microsoft the first thing they’ll do is drop the price to $399 @ this years E3 and take netflix & Some of the other apps from behind a paywall and then announce some games, they should do that if they want any chance to compete with sony, i love my PC and PS4, & Wouldn’t mind adding an xbone to the family

    • Johnnie

      I honestly think they’re too proud to do that. I could see them coming out with a new SKU like a 250gb console with a game and month of gold for $450, but doubt they’ll sell the 500gb one at a lower price already.

    • Xtreme Derp

      They’ll probably announce a kinectless version at E3 for $400 w/ free game bundle at minimum.

  • dana

    that is a wee bit desperate

  • superkarma

    Another price drop? Lol, it’s just getting silly now.

    • cozomel

      They are going to need all the price drops they can get, to sell that turd

  • Trim Dose

    I would buy the console at 300 smackers, and this is may just maybe since right now their games sucks big time.

  • desponent

    Awww, March must’ve been devastating for them.

  • Thats Mr. Smoove

    People act like Microsoft dropped the price of the xbox one. Retailers can sell products at whatever. Why? because they already paid for it. It is now being sold at a loss to target xbox has already made there money from target. Microsoft isn’t the one that desperate it’s target.com overstock on Titanfall bundles. If this is in fact true i’m about to go to target.com and get it.

    • GameBruh

      It’s true that these sales aren’t due to an official price drop from Microsoft. But you
      have to admit that it’s a little odd that retailers are willing to
      take a loss to move the product. That tells me that retailers are losing
      more money by keeping X1 on the shelves than they are from selling the
      systems at a loss. That, or Microsoft is kicking down cash or some kind of incentive on the back end to aggressively move X1′s.

      • Sexy Mcgee

        When I worked at retail the manager told me companies would sometimes insure a percentage of an item that was expected to sell a certain amount if the retailer bought an x amount of units. So if Microsoft expected one best buy to sell 90 units and told them to buy a 100 but then they only sold 80 they would take a percentage of the hit on the ten that did not sell. Or something like that.

    • MTM2

      But the fact that multiple retailers are continually dropping the price reflects heavily on the sales situation of the console though. Doesn’t matter whether it’s the retailer or supplier cutting the price, continual discounts only occurs when sales need boosting. Saying target is overstocking Titanfall bundles even further proves that point, they’re not selling at the rate Target wants.

      There’s no way to spin that, and you can’t say “It is now being sold at a loss to target xbox” since you have no idea what Target is buying X1′s for per unit.

    • RA3030

      My friend though I give $$ Microsoft $$ a hard time you or spot on exactly right. Retailers have already paid $$ Microsoft $$ so they already got there money. The issue Retailers have is they can no longer have the back stock sitting in their storerooms because they cal sell them. They’ve had the Xbox Cable box sitting for 5 months now and they can’t give them away and they need the room for swim suits, socks and underwear. They need the space. Any day we’ll see the Xbox Cable box in the $5 bin on clearance sale.

  • GameBruh

    If it came with a physical copy of Titanfall, I’d seriously consider it because I’d be able to sell it. Can’t really do much with a download code for a game I don’t want.

    • Matt Dickinson

      Isn’t it possible to sell download codes?

      • GameBruh

        You could. Though I’ve always been wary of selling intangible goods on eBay. Too many scammers.

  • You are flat out wrong

    Damn, now that’s what I call value. How low can it go?

    • Somebodyissilent

      $5….

  • Michael Ellis

    I have both ps4 and Xbox One. I’m glad I do. Didn’t think I’d like titan fall but I love it. I was at target today and picked up forza 5, DR 3 and Ryse for 129. They have a buy 2 get 1 going on through April 12. Before you haters hate. I love all 3 of the games I bought and that’s all that matters.

    • Johnnie

      RESPECT.

      • cozomel

        DISRESPECT

    • Michael Ellis

      That was all games not just Xbox one buy 2 get 1.

    • Neil Dyson

      Ryse is awesome finally got to finish the campaign the other day. Loved it.

      • Delsin Row

        LOL. LOL.
        http://www.metacritic.com/game/xbox-one/ryse-son-of-rome
        i respect you man , but i think you dont know what a good game is. a good game doesnt score 4 from gamespot.

        • Neil Dyson

          I know exactly what a good game is. It’s one I play right the way through and thoroughly enjoy not what someone else thinks of it or what score it gets in total on Metacritic that website has so many flame baiters on it I wouldn’t believe a single score on there these days. seems its maybe you that has forgotten how to judge a game – play it and see what YOU think thats the only way to form an opinion otherwise you are just echoing someone elses opinion without any facts of your own.

          • Delsin Row

            i really agree for what you saying. a man should play a game and score it for himself. but dont you think with all this negative reviews , the game is full of problems ? i play ryse in my friend xbox . based on what i’ve played , the visual is so awesome. but the gameplay is so boring. that is why every websites score low for this game. THE GAMEPLAY IS SO BORING. but everyone has it’s own opinions , and everyone should respect that.

          • Neil Dyson

            I certainly think Dead Rising 3 has way more problems than Ryse. Thats even more sluggish. That’s a game that want’s sorting now not tomorrow.

      • cozomel

        Hanna Montana is awesome, finally got to finish the campaign the other day. Loved it

    • cozomel

      I dont have X1 and “I’m glad i dont”

      • Neil Dyson

        totally unbiased opinion and what all the sony fanboys want to see. :P

  • all yall are faggots

    retarded playstation fan boys forget this is EXCACTLY what happened with the ps3

    • MTM2

      Yes and the PS3 launch is widely regarded as a disaster.

      I don’t know why you’re thinking drawing that comparison somehow rectifies MS’s situation.

    • superkarma

      And we all know the PS3 launch was a disgrace. Comparing the two doesn’t help your cause, fanboy.

      Also, you retarded Xbots are still living in the past. Last I checked, this wasn’t almost 8 years ago. Come back to reality and enjoy the present — where the X1 needs price drops every other week just to get off the shelves.

      • BigDickKamen

        ps3 was garbage first couple of years only GOW stood out and uncharted, i can only say the last 2 years were good to PS3 thanks to TLOU but better late then never right?

        • superkarma

          That’s subjective. Also, same could be said about the 360 with Halo and Gears. But again, you’re living in the past. Why are you bringing up last gen when we’re talking about current gen?

          • BigDickKamen

            price drops are always a good thing for me, i don’t know how people would be affected by a price drop cept for MS, instead they claim MS will be sold blah blah, and yes i know they fucked up but never too late to change, seeing as the price is dropping and MS releasing excellent updates the army will continue to grow. Now we just need games

    • Michael Jackson

      put the ps3 is winning, it beat the xbox 360 in sales

  • PatcherStation

    In the UK, it launched at £400, but you could pick it up discounted for £370. Even Titanfall has dropped in price. Looks like Titanfall was a very short fix. Even the Xbox 360 version has been priced the same as the Xbox One version. Some online stores have the Xbox 360 version at a higher price than the Xbox One version. Do a US currency exchange (£400), it’s still too expensive. Even at £350, it’d struggle. £300 would kick start it. But packaged with an online only game, Microsoft’s best bet would be to change it. A game on disc would be an added bonus. £300, that’s $497 including VAT and delivery.

    • MTM2

      Actually it launched at £430 in the UK.

  • RA3030

    Sorry $$ Microsoft $$ it’s still not enough. They would be better off and sell more if they just dropped the price to $330 and let you pay for the game and the XBL instead of charging you $450 and telling you it’s like paying $330 because if You pay $450 to get it out the door no matter the wishful thinking of its $330 it’s still a painful $450 that it’ll cost you. Don’t you love how $$ Microsoft $$ is now in the business of telling people what and how to think.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      I’d write something witty, using $ony all over the place…. But Sony has no money :

      • Norrin Radd

        I’m a big PS4 fan, and even I have to say, that was damn funny! Very clever.

      • RA3030

        $ony is not as greedy as $$ Microsoft $$.

  • Neil Dyson

    Desperation? lmao you would think people would be happy theres a good deal on this bundle not critisizing it. By all means go and pay full price but those comments make no sense.

    • superkarma

      For the consumer, it’s obviously a steal. If you’re looking for an X1, then obviously you got nothing to complain about. However, for the retailer, it’s nothing but desperation. They don’t want a product sitting on their shelves taking up valuable real estate for nothing. So much so, they’re willing to take a significant loss just to clear the stock.

      • Ritsujun

        Dat MS desperation. =DDDD

  • mikeslemonadeFromN4G

    LOL!

  • Giuseppe Nelva

    Just one little note: It seems that many aren’t understanding that this kind of deal is done at a retailer level. It’s not sponsored by Microsoft (as Pachter explained in our interview last week, when it comes from Microsoft it happens across all retailers simultaneously), but it’s Target’s own initiative in the hope to drive sales of games and accessories by selling more consoles.

    Thought I’d give a reminder, as the misconception is derailing the discussion.

    • Dario Antonio Puello Lugo

      Don’t bother to explaim,some peolple just see what they want to see and understand what make them happy.
      1st- Cry by the highier price.
      2nd-Cry by the cheaper offerts.
      Haters gonna hate.

      • Giuseppe Nelva

        Haha, I bother, since it’s kinda my job :D If people wanna listen, good for em. I did my duty :P

        • cozomel

          We get it. I dont think any one has the wrong idea here. But the fact is, that Target feels the need to enitce people to buy it cuz it must not be selling that well

      • cozomel

        Everybody gets it. Its you dumb bots that dont get it. If Target feels the need to do this than it means it aint selling that well. Now stop with the excuses and face the reality.

  • Illusive Man

    Ryse looks better than Infamous.

    • shinitaru

      glad to see that you are keeping up with the topic ;p

  • JumpIf NotZero

    I’m sort of not following, so please help me out here…

    Target on their own volition tosses in a year of live == MS desperate…

    Fanboys come together to mock MS every single day in and out with the same tired criticisms of a platform they say they aren’t interested in, reciting the competitors obscure hardware specifications ad nauseum even though they are not programmers, taking every article about one OR the other and turning it into a comparison-bitchfest ….. That’s ‘not’ desperation?

    If the PS4 is so wonderful… Why is everyone so obsessed with the Xbox? Shouldn’t it barely be mentioned like the WiiU? Shouldn’t the fanboys look on with indifference? No, the constant attempt to polarize two is the actual theme of desperation. Desperate for a choice affirmation. Way worse than anything Microsoft could ever do.

    • shinitaru

      You say that like there isn’t a mob of trolls on your team doing the same thing on every PS4 article.

      • JumpIf NotZero

        If you think I have a team… You apparently can’t read. I own both, and I still don’t give a shit about fanboys.

        Target adds a year of live == MS desperate according to the the fanboys here. But even reaching so far as to make that statement is an extreme insecurity… That’s the only desperation I see.

        • shinitaru

          Regardless, you act like the PS4 fans are the only ones doing this sort of thing. But seeing as how you are trying to deflect, I won’t bother to try to reason with you.

          • JumpIf NotZero

            I’m sorry, are we suddenly in a PS4 article where the majority of the comments are how Sony is such a bag of dicks?

          • shinitaru

            No, but there are plenty of those too. but of course you don’t have the guts to comment in a Sony topic, you prefer to badmouth Sony from MS topics where you can pretend you have the high ground. Again, hypocritical and a bit cowardly

          • superkarma

            Don’t bother. He’s one of those imbeciles who acts as though he’s not biased, simply because he owns both consoles.

    • MTM2

      I think you’re missing the point, a majority are saying the continued discounts on the X1 from multiple retailers reflects the push from retailers to clear stock which clearly isn’t shifting at the rate they want.

      And if retailers aren’t selling, retailers aren’t ordering, which affects Microsoft.

    • Xtreme Derp

      Some people like discussing sales. It’s very obvious Xbox isn’t selling well enough, that’s why retailers continue to drop the price and bundle free games and other offers. You want to have a cry about it?

      This is a discussion forum, stop trying to shut down people talking about things that paint your favorite piece of plastic in a bad light.

  • halokillernoob .

    Really? Why are there so many PS fanboys in the comments? It’s ridiculous… You didn’t come here because you were actually interested in the article, you came just to try to criticize and belittle the console. Get a life you nerds.

    • superkarma

      You seem upset.

    • JumpIf NotZero

      Get a life nerds is a tall request. This is what I got on Friday here:

      • Xtreme Derp

        You mad? You made a dozen+ posts in that article too, hypocrite.

        Except what I typed was factual and of worth, while you wasted digital space with delusional, ignorant, and wrong conspiracy theories about Xbox secretly being more powerful. Just go back to misterxturd’s blog and stay there.

          • Xtreme Derp

            I’m right, you’re wrong. Go back to misterxturd’s blog if you want a hugbox to hide from the real world and the fact that PS4′s hardware is more powerful and will stay that way.

            Your deranged conspiracy theories and ignorant technobabble suggest you have some level of paranoid schizophrenia.

  • MasterofMidnight

    You lucky guys. I wish I could by buy the console at that price.

  • Delsin Row

    dont bother. there wont be any person who buy this garbage. titanfall is great , but the console is a piece of garbage and worthless

    Sounds like Target is desperate to get these dust collectors off their shelves.

    Didn’t last long. I went to Target’s site and it’s not on sale anymore.

    Tried to link. Showing $499 and only one month of free Xbox Live. Not such a huge discount after all.

    I have been looking for this deal all over the place and can’t find it. All I find in the regular bundle with no extra year to Xbox live
