If you’re still holding out to buy Microsoft’s Xbox One at its lower holiday price, you have only a few more days. The eighth-generation console will end the special deal on Jan. 3, according to Xbox Live Director of Programming Larry Hryb.
The temporary price cut bumped the Xbox One down $50 to $350. The device doesn’t come with the Kinect, but an Xbox One with the Kinect can be purchased for $449.
Microsoft first cut the price of the Xbox One on June 9 this year, dropping the $500 price tag to $400 without the Kinect. It slashed another $50 off in early November, which resulted in the console outselling Sony’s PlayStation 4 for the first time since the launch of both devices one year ago. Sony is currently still in the console lead, with more than 13.5 million devices sold as of September, while Microsoft allegedly has moved 9 million devices as of mid-December, according to VGChartz.
Players can currently pick up the Xbox One “Assassin’s Creed Unity” bundle, which comes with “Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag” and “Assassin’s Creed Unity.” They can find the deal at a number of stores, including Best Buy, Target, Amazon, GameStop NewEgg and Toys 'R' Us.
The $50 promotion will end at 11 p.m. PST this Saturday.
