Titanfall Xbox One Bundle Dropped to £349 at ASDA Direct; Matches the Price of PS4

by on April 10, 2014 6:44 PM 68

If you’re on the fence about buying an Xbox One and you live in the UK, this could just be the right chance. ASDA Direct has dropped the price of the Titanfall bundle down to £349.

It’s interesting to see that the new price matches the local cost of a PS4, and it includes a game to boot.

If you’re interested, you can get it here. As a funny twist, the Xbox One by itself is still priced at £379. They sure aren’t going to sell many of those now.

      You understand that this kind of discounts is not sponsored or initiated by Microsoft?

      When Microsoft (or Sony) drop price, it’s across the board. When it’s one or a few retailers, it’s their initiative to sell more consoles and try to sell more accessories/games as a consequence, independently from the publisher. Then other retailers match price not to lose market share.

      • dranzer1

        Exactly. I don’t get how they think that console discounts are from the Company itself.

        • shinitaru

          because that’s just wishful thinking. If it were MS that discounted them, it would be a promo to increase the install base, but if it is retailers discounting it by that much, that indicates a lack of confidence and desire to just get them off the shelf….Whoever this is, they are losing a lot of money

          • dranzer1

            Or they can’t get enough consumer attention from major retailer and this can cause discounts.

          • shinitaru

            How is that going to help this particular retailer? They don’t stand to gain anything other than freeing up space for other, better selling products and recouping a bit of the investment

      • desponent

        Many retailers do this in US AND EU, it’s naive to think that MS has absolutely no say in this.

      • Jkwakopo

        exactly… this is the problem.. .retailers can’t wait to free up their space even at loss…. well, better for consumers like myself who was looking for a price drop!

    • dranzer1

      Yes because Retailers own pricing makes that MS changed the price

    • MasterofMidnight

      Perhaps not as desperate as someone that spends all their spare time on gaming news sites trashing video game consoles.

      • CervantesPR

        im not at home when i do most of my posting lol im at work right now LMAO im bored

        • MasterofMidnight

          Well, shouldn’t you be working? :P

      • Guest

        how do you know if he spends all his spare time on gaming news sites ? stalker ? LoL

        • MasterofMidnight

          Because of the high percentage of comments he writes trash talking the XB1. LoL

        • truthtellerdealwithit

          Because he spends just as much time talking crap too ;)

      • Xtreme Derp

        That’s totally not hypocritical coming from you.

    • Xtreme Derp

      MS might not be, but European retailers are having trouble moving stock. Anywhere outside of the US is not doing very well.

  • MasterofMidnight

    Damnit! I’d have snapped that up in a heartbeat, if I were still living in the UK.

  • Bankai

    So these stores have too much stock and are trying to clear them? I work at a grocery store and that’s usually the case when we have too much eggs, milk, cheese, etc.

    • shinitaru

      Does the XB1 have an expiration date?

      • Raven Nafariea

        Yes, November 23rd, 2013. lol

      • dranzer1

        Ps4 expired on November 22nd, 2013. Fun fact.

        • Bankai

          So it still lasted 6 days longer than the Xbone. If you’re gonna troll, the least you can do is put some effort into it.

          • shinitaru

            I think that was his best effort :

          • dranzer1

            It expired on Xbox Ones release

          • Bankai

            And the Xbone expired 6 days before the PS4′s European release.

          • dranzer1

            Ps4 expired after Titanfall again

          • Xtreme Derp

            You realize PS4 has been outselling Xbox ~2:1 every month globally since January?

        • Raven Nafariea

          Original, you are a Genius to come up with that quip… Oh, no wait you’re NOT. Sorry, try again.

        • MTM2

          You’re really trolling Playstation on a website called Dualshockers?

          Someone ban this idiot.

      • Bankai

        I only used dairy and eggs as an example because they’re the most common BOGO items, I think it’s more an issue of space. If we don’t keep the stock room as empty as possible, we’re screwed when the next week’s shipments come in because then we end up with back stock and I’m guessing the same applies to the Xbox Ones – they’re taking up too much space in the back, so they’re trying to clear them out in order to make room.

        • dranzer1

          I heard the ps4s weren’t even put and were thrown in the dump and that’s why they are never on shelves.

          • Bankai

            What fairy tale is that again?

          • DemonFenton

            Enjoying that $3.00 from MS?

  • Craig Sloan

    As a citizen of the U.K I just don’t care. I’ve got a PS4 for my gaming needs.

    • dranzer1

      Is it making jet sounds and the controller rubber wearing off?

      • Craig Sloan

        The rubber wearing off on the left thumbstick is well documented. Sony have said if you send them your controller they will refund it for you. Mine has slightly started to wear off.

        I got a PS4 day one and it had the Blue light of death. I got a refund from Amazon and now it works perfect. No weird sounds and no problems. My friends have no problems either with theirs. If you have your warranty/receipt get a refund from wherever you bought it from.

        • dranzer1

          :/ Mine stopped responding on the second day. I was refunded too but the jet sounds during infamous and killzone freak me.. Its in a well ventilated area though.

          • Craig Sloan

            If your fan is not working right this will happen and it will overheat and brick. Seriously get it changed now.

          • dranzer1

            There was no problem with it according to sony when I sent the second one back to them. They said nothing was wrong and sent me the console back saying nothing was wrong.

          • Craig Sloan

            Why did I just not look at your comment history to begin with TROLL and XBOT. See what I get for trying to be helpful.

          • Gamist

            Welcome to Troll Spot 101…

          • shinitaru

            Yep, that’s what you get. It’s okay man, live and learn…

          • dranzer1

            I am a troll from Xbox that is true but that’s for amusement. For seriously though I do have those problems with my Ps4. I own a Xbox One as well and I had problems with its disk tray so I’m not afraid to admit it. I am mainly a PC gamer but I still appreciate trying to help me with the problems.

          • Gamist

            The X1 has a disc tray?

          • dranzer1

            Slot you can say

          • MasterofMidnight

            To be fair, if you write ‘I’ve got a PS4 for my gaming needs’ to begin with, a statement pretty fanboyish in itself, what would you expect?

          • shinitaru

            So, only fanboys have preferences? Come on, I thought you were supposed to be intelligent…..

          • Averix

            He’s an Xbox trolling fanboy. Don’t bother providing practical advice.

          • Xtreme Derp

            Odds he actually has an Xbox and isn’t just trolling?

        • ConsoleTruth818

          Well documented or not, I still call bullshit.. I’ve been using my same DS4 controller ever since they released it and have been using it on PS3 2 months before the PS4 was released.

          There is no rubber coming off the analog sticks and no problems with any of the buttons either. I’m not saying the problem doesn’t exist but I think some people just don’t wash their hands and are too rough with the thumbsticks.

          Like I said I’ve been using my DS4 extensively with PS3 2 months prior to the release of the console and I’ve seen no such flaws.

          • Yisa Yussuf

            World War 2 is Well Documented…. That Bullshit too? Congrats it didn’t happen to you, it happened to me in the first week. I don’t care how rough or dirty your hands are, it aint supposed to degrade after less than 10 days of use. You can see the rubber is thinner on the defective pad compared to my second pad. Its a manufacturing issue otherwise the wouldn’t cover it under warranty.

          • ConsoleTruth818

            Whatever the case may be it hasn’t happened to me so I’m obviously doing something right while.. well you know.. :)

        • shinitaru

          The rubber wore off on mine but I don’t want to be without it long enough to send it back. I’ll just buy another one and send it back and make it my second controller. Really no big deal, it’s just slightly slicker but still works just as well till I can get it replaced

          • dranzer1

            There is a warranty actually to get it replaced now.

  • dranzer1

    My ps4 is making jet sounds during Killzone and the Left stick is wearing off D:

    • Averix

      If you hate your PS4 as much as you claim, how could you possibly have worn down the stick? Stupid fanboy.

      • Yisa Yussuf

        hes not a fanboy… my ps4 controller did that in the first week, after very light play. My other controller shows no signs of degrading. after 5 months. People are throwing around this “fanboy” stuff too much. calm down kids

        • Averix

          He is a fanboy. If you read posting history, that is an obvious conclusion. Whether or not his controllers are actually failing is a different issue.

    • MTM2

      Can a mod just ban you? You’re on a website called Dualshockers trolling, literally pathetic.

    • Ritsujun

      Poor Xkeleton. Why haven’t you bought 100 Xbone720p’s to support that demandless console?

    • superkarma

      My X1 controller keeps dying due to using batteries, as if it were a device from decades ago :(

  • Johnnie

    Am I the only one that finds it strange a site called DualShockers consistently delivers news on Xbox products (particularly Titanfall)? Just an observation.

    • Yisa Yussuf

      not really.. its hot news so course they will cover it for traffic. But what i dont agree with is when the mods constantly come to xbones defense with their being called out for resolution, games etc. Its like microsoft has paid these sites to quell the fanboy hate.. by the fact that phil spencer said fanboys are dumb, he knows they are killing xbone hype.

  • RealityCheck2013

    It will be in the ‘Bargain Bins’ next week LoL:D

  • Alley Crockett

    Clearly a popular item…..

    • Xtreme Derp

      lol
