Xbox One, on top of previous price slashes due to the removal of the kinect being an option AND just a general price cut, is getting reduced further by Microsoft. This reduction in prove for the Xbox One will be applicable on Thanksgiving through to Cyber Monday, but at $329 it's a deal a lot of people won't want to miss out on. This deal will be available at BestBuy, GameStop, Microsoft Retail Stores, Target, Toys R Us and Walmart.

One of the big pulls Microsoft is hoping for potential next gen buyers to see is that this deal will make the Xbox One $70 less than any PlayStation 4 on the market and $20 cheaper than any previously announced holiday deal for the Xbox One. These discounts are also applicable to any of the current Xbox One Bundles such as the Assassin's Creed Unity bundle, the Call of Duty Advance Warfare bundle or the white Sunset Overdrive bundle. If you want to check out some of the finer details of the bundles and where you can get them then you can check out the official blog post that Xbox made.
