Hey guys I've been browsing various websites and I happened to notice this on Microcenter's website. They have the Xbox One  with Kinect listed for $400. It says you can find it online and then pick-up in store. I checked the store in NJ and it says they have 10+ in-stock. Doesn't seem like a YMMV deal since the website clearly says $400. Here's a list below where they're located.

Hmmmm.... good find.  Found some in my local Microcenter and tempted to get one.  Too bad I have to pay taxes, it doesn't come with a game, and there aren't any killer games I want right now...

If it's any consolation, the bundle with Forza 5 is $450.  Pretty damn good deal that I would absolutely hop on if I could afford it.

Once you go black you never.....wait.

Forza 5 has regularly been on sale for $40 so while it's not much getting this system and the game when it's on sale would be better. Additionally the game is $40 Physical on sale a lot compared to the $450 bundle which includes a digital code.

Thanks, but I can't take all the credit Copy/Paste did most of the work.  :-

Just an FYI, BB has Microcenter in their system as a store they price match.


Once as a kid I cried as my parents drove from ny to nj. That was a far cry.

This does look like a good deal.  However it might be a PITA to PM with BB.  They always give me trouble and excuses for PM'ing anything over 50 dollars and each time I ask them to show me where it says there is an amount limit with PM'ing.  With the GC's and RZC's I have I could get it down to about 250.  I will wait for the redesign, bigger hard drive and cheaper price.

Actually they're in there but the link screwed up. It's in red under Massachusetts.

 

Also wanted to add that if you have a Microcenter in your state you may be able to easily get it price matched to Best Buy.

Nice deal .... but if you've already gone this long and didn't get one yet ... might as well just hang in there a little longer and wait for the next model to come along with a slimmer design, more space, and so on ....

If you can hold out for a slim model than you can hold out for the slim model price cut and so on. And if you can wait for a slim model price cut, you might as well wait for the NEXT design and so on and so on and so on and so on

Or wait till it actually has some good games on it.

 

But yeah Ill buy one after a couple more price drops and a re-design. By then it might have more something on it I actually want to play that I cant play on my ps4 or PC.

Any coupons worth stacking? There is one close to me but still not willing to get one for $400.

Picked this up, but amazed at how little free content there is to play on it. While I had read quite a bit of the coverage before it came out I didn't even realize that they'd done away with "Arcade", along with the requirement for trials, which was one of the best features of the 360, imo. As it is, there really isn't a whole lot to do with it without actual games (even the Dead Rising 3 demo limits you to 2 plays, which is really pretty lame). This will change very slightly next month, I suppose, when Games with Gold extends to the XBone, but it's still a bit disappointing (I didn't want to get any of the current games at "full" price, and already bought Titanfall for PC, so, yeah). Guess I'll probably toss a couple of the games up on my Gamefly list.

yea but when Games with Gold extend to the Xbox One they will work like PS Plus Games does now. Meaning even after downloading the GWG Games you will sure have to have a active Paid Xbox Live Gold Subscription to play the downloaded games.

Just price matched with no problem at BB in Mt Laurel NJ. Surprised to find out they are running a special for 12 months of gold for $20 with purchase if xbone. $447.98 after taxes for an xbox one with kinect and a year of live. NICE! Thanks OP!

That's basically irrelevant to me... not going to own an Xbox One without having XB Live Gold (no multiplayer?). What's also weird is that I could've sworn MS had sort of a reverse Games with Gold policy to PSN, where you could download and play them as much as you want, but when you deleted them they wouldn't be available to you any more. I could've sworn I picked up Assassin's Creed 2 when it was offered, but didn't want it to sit on my HD forever... when I went back later to see if I could claim it it was no longer an option. However, when I looked at what I'd downloaded with GwG now it was all available to me (though still not AC2). I guess I probably missed a bunch of games because I didn't see that it still worked the same way as PSN+. Oh well.

Titanfall bundle is also $450. Wife bought an XB1 for herself b/c of the price just to play Project Spark and Diablo Ultimate when it comes out.
