Microsoft seems to have made a habit of cutting the Xbox One’s price. The original Xbox One was recently discounted to $299 from its usual retail price of $349. Merely two weeks have passed since that price went into effect and today the company has cut it further. The price cut comes a day after Microsoft unveiled the new Xbox One S which is 40 percent smaller than the original console.

This appears to be a promotional price cut, but it’s also a good way for Microsoft to clear existing inventory of the original Xbox One.

A further Xbox One price cut has been implemented today. Basic bundles of the 500GB Xbox One are now available for $279 as opposed to the $299 pricing that went into effect two weeks ago. Microsoft has confirmed that this is a promotional price cut and that it’s going to remain in effect until October 1st. If you’d like to pick up the console at a very attractive price, well now is your chance.

It’s clear that Microsoft is moving on from the original Xbox One now. The Xbox One S looks better than the original console and has a few minor tweaks as well. Microsoft has also confirmed Project Scorpio which is its 4K Xbox One with VR support, the company calls it the most powerful console it has ever built and it’s going to be released next year.
